JOHN THOMAS Question to all, does any one know what size quick connect fitting fits the H&S Infinity. I am having problems finding one and were to get it.

Martin Oostrom You can unscrew the quick release part. Then you can use a regular screw on hose.
4. September at 14:09:56
JOHN THOMAS Roland, Spanjaard & Martin thanks much, I will check it out.
4. September at 16:08:03
JOHN THOMAS Hey Guys, just a little up date. I finally found a quick connect fitting and new hose, so now I can start to use my H&S Infinity. new photos up.

Project: VA-76 A-4C Mig shot down
29. September at 12:19:32 Share
JOHN THOMAS Hey guy's More A-4s. VA-76 A-4C. I will be modeling Ted Swartz's A-4C which on May 1, 1967 shot down a Mig 17 with Zuni rockets. Swartz shot down was the only A-4 shot down of a Mig during the whole Vietnam War. I will convert the Airfix A-4B to an A-4C. I will use "Attack Squardon" A-4C conversion detail set which has a new resin nose and some PE. Much of the build will be the same as my other A-4 builds.

JOHN THOMAS I will be jumping around from all three of my A-4's projects working on all three at the same time. Note there are some really cool Youtube videos of this A-4C flying.

Holger Kranich Are you happy with the new nose? Was the difference so obvious? You put a lot of ellbow grease in your build!
1. October at 14:06:46
JOHN THOMAS Holger thanks, Yes the new resin nose went on nice. A little trimming and sanding was needed. Getting it alined and square with the fuselage was the only issue.

JOHN THOMAS Hey all. more A-4's. I have started a new A-4. I will be back dating the Airfix A-4B back to an A-4A. This will required some minor surgery. I will be building this A-4A along with my two A-4B's. Much of the same work I did on the A-4Bs will be done on the A-4A. I will modeling an A-4A from around 1958. Some of the Minor surgery required will be Removing the rudder ribs on the tail and remove the wing vortex generators and remove the refueling probe. The A-4As did not have refueling probe also the early A-4As did not have the red slat wells and red trim on gear doors.

Choppa Nutta they look sweet ! good enough to eat :)
shame about the light trails but a tricky feature to add, my temptation would be to get some clear coloured perspex perhaps even though it aint movie accurate it would look very cool and be very suggestive of a light trail, just a thought :)
19. March 2015 at 14:16:40
JOHN THOMAS Choppa Nutta, thanks. I need to find something better than painted wood or colored paper. I will keep looking for something
19. March 2015 at 19:34:46
Choppa Nutta best of luck ! :) very tricky though to get that glow effect to make it look like a light trail
19. March 2015 at 20:37:03
JOHN THOMAS Thanks Choppa Nutta, that is my problem. I will keep looking. IPMS National Contest is at the end of July, I may try to do something by then.
20. March 2015 at 12:02:26
Bart Goesaert Lovely work.. I'd also think of a thin plexiglass sheet, sanded matte on both sides for better reflection and some yellow and blue LED's underneath...
20. March 2015 at 12:18:06
JOHN THOMAS Bart, that a great idea I will look into that thanks.
20. March 2015 at 19:44:46
Torsten Wendt I like your work

Gordon Sørensen Wow! $6.25 US at Walmart. Shipping would probably be extremely expensive though...
9. April at 14:50:18
JOHN THOMAS Spanjaard, I see. I am lucky to be able to buy as much Pledge/Future as I like from my Walmart which is less than a mile from my house.
9. April at 14:52:40
Jos Jansen

I ordered via a seller in the States, last year for 50 you can buy it for 20 bucks, two bottles...shipped to the Netherlands. Of course not as cheap as you can get it on your bike to the Walmart, but it is fantastic stuff and you really can use it for a very long time!
9. April at 19:04:23
Martin Oostrom Thanks Jos. Really a shame that shipping is €488,-

5. May at 08:22:48
Ralf Schoenen If the above link does not work,just search „Pledge floor care
5. May at 08:26:10
JOHN THOMAS Thanks, guys. I am very glad that very one is enjoying my Future thread. May be we can post some of the different use for Future other than clear coats. Thanks Burkhard D for the Yellowing photo.

Maciej Bellos Hey Thomas, will you correct the rogue red color that got away and lies on the top of the left engine? It's a shame to leave it there...
7. April at 20:53:11
JOHN THOMAS Maciej, Yes I know it's there and I will handle it. There are also some small little details that all so need some attention
8. April at 00:25:22
JOHN THOMAS New photos up today. I had to fix a few little details before I start decaling. Decals photos up start soon
14. April at 13:21:57
JOHN THOMAS Added a few more photos, Decaling under way
15. April at 00:42:43
JOHN THOMAS New photos up today. Decaling now complete. Starting to work on the small bits. The kit Decals worked great even being from 1999. The aircraft has very few markings and fewer Stencils. I used "Micro Set" and "Micro Sol" on the kit decals with no problems.
17. April at 11:53:48
James C Looking awesome John.

JOHN THOMAS James, Thanks
