  1. You might be right about the paint scheme, but who knows? After the new wears off the CAG birds could add some color.
  2. It may have been posted somewhere else, but I ran across a recent article where VFA-147 will be the first non-FRS squadron transitioning to the F-35C: "The first operational Fleet unit will be VFA-147 'Argonauts', which will transition from the Boeing F/A-18E Super Hornet in January 2018. " I'm waiting to see the hi-viz CAG paint scheme....
  3. I have the Mach 2 B-45 kit and I'm looking forward to seeing the new sheet.
  4. Got mine in the mail today. Thanks Chris!
  5. PM sent on the Airfix Spit
  6. I'm pretty sure that the kit is the 'old tool' that came with raised panel lines.
  7. Thanks for the updates. A lot of us here are watching your site for any changes. Last year was a rough one for you and your family. As many have said, you have to take care of your family first. I know everyone here hopes that this year will be a great one for you.
  8. Lisa, Welcome to the site. You've already gotten lots of great advice from other members here so I'll add one more. Make sure before you apply any decals, you have a glossy finish. You can get this from a glossy paint, from airbrushing 'Future ' as someone suggested, or use Master Modeller clear gloss coat. If you do there shouldn't be any 'silvering' around the decals. After the decals are applied, also seal them with either a gloss, semi gloss or flat finish (depending on your build ). You can get either of them in Master Modeller spray cans. Remember, Several light coats instead of one heavy coat works best. Good luck on your build. I'll be watching how it goes.
