Re: Code 3 - Dragon Wings F/A-18F VX-9 Vampires 20

Thanks Evo. It's funny that it has been almost 3 years when I initially asked you about your VX-9 black tailed Code 3. That's what spurred me on to get my own and while researching I stumbled upon...

Re: Code 3 - Dragon Wings F/A-18F VX-9 Vampires 20

Re: Air Commander AC1006 F-4J NG211,VF-92,USS Constellation,10 May 1972

If you're talking about the rear AIM-7, my copy does the same. I usually put a dab of white glue to keep loose fitting accessories in place if needed. It usually does the trick.

Re: Hobby Master HA5212 USN Grumman F-14A Tomcat, VF-84 "Jolly Rogers", Desert Storm,

I forgot to address this question earlier, but no, I did not have to modify it to fit the Tomcat. It was a tight fit once you get it snapped in place.
