    My airbrush just died- recommendations?

    The PS770 really looks like a nice airbrush. Read/watched some reviews and boy am I tempted. I have an Infinity and I like it a lot. Especially the ease with which one can clean it, but I have realized that there is another higher level of airbrush out there and I'd like to dip my toe into that pond. Price has always been the problem, but the PS770 is around the same price as the Infinity. All that to say, thanks for pointing out the PS770. Time to save some money.
  3. From the photos in the Aeroscale review, it does not look like they are halftoned. Here's a link: http://aeroscale.kitmaker.net/modules.php?op=modload&name=Reviews&file=index&req=showcontent&id=13378 Compare them to GWH decals shown in this review where the halftoning is definitely visable: http://www.modellbauforum-koeln.de/index.php/Thread/4782-F-15C-Oregon-ANG-75th-Annversary/?postID=120160#post120160 My only concern, beside fit, with the Revell decals is the colors. In the photos the colors look off compared to pics of the real thing. The Warbirds and GWH decals are closer to the real colors, based on the photos I've seen (plus I have the Warbirds decals).

    1/32 Lockheed S-3B Viking - scratchbuilt

    Amazing! Just beautiful.
  5. Yea, if you zoom in real close you can see the fin. Also, I don't think its a naval Rafale. A B or C probably.

    Where are you going modelwise in 2019?

    That is one killer of a spray booth. Man, I'd love to be able to have something like that. Big enough to paint just about anything in. Awesome hobby room!

    Revell 1/32 F/A-18E Super Hornet

    I built one of Revell's 1/32 Ju-88A-1 converted to an A-4. It had a few fit issues but otherwise was a beautiful kit and built up into a very impressive, and large, model. I really enjoyed that build. Over the years, it seems, Revell's 1/32 releases have been a mixed bag but as Don mentioned, they are a real deal cost wise.
  9. Well, scratch the GWH version. Their decals use the same halftoning as the Warbirds decals. http://www.modellbauforum-koeln.de/index.php/Thread/4782-F-15C-Oregon-ANG-75th-Annversary/?postID=120160#post120160
  10. There are photos of the decals on the Aeroscale sites review of the kit. They look real nice. Now I'm just hoping they will fit my old Hasegawa kit. I think GWH/Pit Road did a release of their F-15C with the same scheme, but those are a bit too costly.
  11. Could it be a leather sewing needle? https://www.I am a spammer, please report this post..com/item/Hand-Stitched-Triangle-Sewing-Needle-Leather-Carving-Handmade-Tool-Diamond-Needle-Triangular-Needle-Leather-Needle-S0042/32766646675.html Here's some more: https://www.amazon.com/EUBags-Leather-Stitching-Needles-Projects/dp/B07D58CF16
  12. I looked it up. Its called halftoning. Unfortunately it is all too visible on the Warbirds decals.
  13. I pulled out my Hasegawa F-15C and checked the tail decals against the Hasegawa tails. They are very close, just a fraction of a mm wider at the top than the tail pieces in the kit. I think they will fit, BUT, on closer examination of the decals, the printing quality is not as good as I thought. The areas where colors fade into one another are that kind of printing that uses dots of color. Someone will know what I mean. So, I found a Revell kit on eBay and bought that. The review I saw that had close ups of the decals in the Revell kit look much nicer. Hopefully they will fit the Hasegawa kit too.
  14. I totally agree. The Su-27 family are beautiful aircraft. I have an Kitty Hawk Su-34, GWH Su-35 to be done as production model, and a Kitty Hawk Su-35 to be done as one of the pre-production airframes in eggplant scheme. Probably would do an Su-30SM if someone kits it in 1/48 and I live that long (I build VERY slow these days).
