  1. If this is true, I really look forward to a Meng 1/48 Phantom. If I remember my Phantomology correctly, an F-4G sets us up to easily also get a Late E model, which is still missing from the new wave of 1/48th Phantoms. I consider the "New Wave" to start with the Academy F-4B which was first issued 10 years ago. (has it really been 10 years? wow) So that includes Academy, Zoukei Mura, Tamiya, and hopefully, Meng.
  2. Thanks. That site is a treasure trove of reference pictures.
  3. Nice! I knew the hornet would look awesome painted that way.
  4. It is hard to find a clear pic to illustrate the point, but I see what you mean. I think this proves Geoff's point. At that point, in the early 80s, I seem to remember there were very few colorful markings, so asking here for a suggestion was a great idea. I guess it will come down to when that paint scheme was phased out and when and if any colorful markings were applied to that scheme. This is the best I could find.
  5. The Hornet would look cool in the traditional gray over white. If you do not want to go the WHIF route, you can build the early all white hornets used during evaluation: https://www.caracalmodels.com/cd48158.html
  6. I am ready to start my build for this group build. I am going to do a detailed build with a whole heap of aftermarket parts! Here is the kit: And inside we see: Wow that's a lot of stuff! Let us break it down: First, almost too much stuff to list from Flying LEather necks models, and one part from DACO I was lucky enough to attend the 2022 NATS in Omaha, and I knew I wanted several items from Flying Leathernecks, The Fly Leathernecks table was my first stop on Wednesday
  7. Agreed .. he is great to deal with.
  8. The exhaust looks great, and that is strange how you still lost the decal under a coat of aqua gloss. Lots of setbacks, but you are doing a great job overcoming them. Looks great so far.
  9. I need the connie sheet even though I do not have the kit. An SEA Connie? take my money...
  10. I got a Verlinden seat from Dragon Hobbies on eBay. I wish I could do local pickup ... they are within walking distance from my house. It will be a challenge for me to paint it convincingly ... It is almost like painting a figure, with all the straps, and tonal variation needed in the seat cushions.
  11. I really liked Darren's seminar about the Many Faces of the F-14 👍👍 The Eduard wildcat sold very well, I saw guys buying them 4 or more at a time. They still had plenty on Sunday Then Kinetic confirmed the 1/72 C-17 . There were lots of great models on display, but it was hard to get good pictures. I have not gone through all of mine, but they all need a lot of work to make presentable.
  12. Thanks everyone for your help, I will see what I can find. I was at the NATS, and I went to the Quickboost table, he said he only brought one and sold it within 30 minutes on wednesday.
  13. Hello, I am collecting aftermarket for the Hasegawa F/A-18A I want to build for the Hornet Group build. What is the best option for a seat in 2022? I see Quickboost makes a seat, are there others to consider?
  14. I like the way they brush. I have not tried to airbrush this paint. At this point I only use enamels to brush paint details i can not mask and airbrush, and in this application the Revel Email serves me well. It covers with one coat without a lot of brush marks The tins are somewhat inconvenient, but there are those who argue it seals better a screw lid. 🤷🏼‍♂️
