  1. Anyone have a spare 1/32 WWII US fighter pilot?
  2. Blue camouflage paint could be haze paint from a photo recon unit but I think that's a bit of a stretch. It's possible but I think the solution is probably simpler. The difference in color could merely be a difference in the age between applications of the paint sections. Older painted area would fade faster, have different reflectivity than a newly applied area. Paint formulas shift in color as they fade, too. If I remember correctly, US olive drab tended to shift to a purple/brown color when exposed to UV light at high altitude. Could also be the same paint color from different batches or different manufacturers. Or could be one section painted in US olive drab and other in RAF dark green. With all the debate over blue or green or blue and green, it might be interesting to try some color filters on those photos to see if the different painted areas show marked color shifts.
  3. I think you nailed it. They're covering the upper wing invasion stripes. They appear to have done the same thing with the invasion stripes on the upper fuselage.
  4. Anybody got any info or photos of P-51D's assigned to training at Luke AAF in 1945?
  5. And it even includes decals for the exact bird I wanted to build!
  6. Heard a lot of good things about Kitty Hawk kits. And if Floyd's involved, it's sure to be quality. Thanks!
  7. Who makes the best UH-1H kit? In any scale.
  8. Yeah, I guess you're right. I saw some about 10 years ago but I don't recall seeing any since.
  9. Italeri makes an A model in 1/48th.
  10. Fujimi should be just fine. Looking for a double barrel chin pod from the D model. Thanks for looking.
  11. Anyone have a spare Hasegawa 1/72 F-14D chin pod?
  12. Anyone have a spare Hasegawa 1/72 F-14D chin pod?
  13. Darren, what you accomplish with Revell kits is nothing short of miraculous. I just started working on one of those Revell F-15's to hang from the ceiling of my classroom.
  14. Revell has been half-toning their decals for decades.
  15. Send me your address and I'll get it in the mail as soon as I can.
