  1. Unslatted F-4Es in Vietnam?

    Got it. Thanks. How about the TSIEO thing on the left wing? Did that come after Vietnam?
  2. Unslatted F-4Es in Vietnam?

    Thanks! So probably all the shark-nosed F-4Es from Korat were unslatted?
  3. Unslatted F-4Es in Vietnam?

    How prevalent were F-4Es with unslatted wings in Vietnam, especially the shark-nosed marked jets?
  4. 1/48 B-25J 8 gun nose

    There is also an old IPMS conversion that had the gun nose halves and a nice sheet of decals. I saw one on ebay in the past few weeks. I think Aeromaster or someone also made a resin nose.
  5. Thomas Models 1017 resin conversion

    Federation Models picked up some of PNT's decals and conversions but I didn't see it in their listing. I didn't find much in a search. I did find a review tof a build. But on an online auction site with worldwide reach, it's worth whatever someone will pay for it. I'd post it for $100 and see what happens and re-price accordingly. IMO, the newer kits and scales have passed the old AMT kit by. Good luck.
  6. CD48120 - 1/48 F-106A "City of Jacksonville"

    At last it's arrived! ... THEY have arrived. Just super printing and clarity! A couple of nits: the ink on the directions smeared on every page, making a line or two on "Before you Begin" in the directions unreadable. Would it be possible to put the directions on your reference page? Also Ref.photo 4 isn't actually available at the links provided, but I found what's probably it by googling. Overall, a fabulous sheet. Can't believe it's here at last.
  7. June releases

    Very much looking to getting my "Jacksonville" sheets. Bicentennial markings on the July 4th holiday. Great way to celebrate.
  8. Best zipper bags for decals?

    That many decals come in a zipper bag saved me recently. They survived when water penetrated the clear notebook sleeves that I was using to catalog my decals for easy viewing. Most of decals though are stored in 1-gallon zipper bags. But things like "F-14" or "P-51" have grown beyond a small handful and the zippers won't close. I'm thinking I need to upsize.
  9. Best zipper bags for decals?

    That is just a fabulous tip. And I assume that applies only to the paper packets, not the little cylindrical plastic desiccant packs?
  10. Best zipper bags for decals?

    Post plumbing disaster: What are the best zipper bags for decals? I like to consolidate types, i.e. P-51 decals, F-14 decals, etc. One-gallon bags wind up being too small for a handful of decals. I see 3-gallon bags for sale online. I need to protect the remaining stash better.
  11. Which kit is easier? 1/48 ZM or Academy F-4J?

    Presumably those pieces are in the Academy F-4J kit?
  12. Which kit is easier? 1/48 ZM or Academy F-4J?

    Why would one want to put B intakes on a J? Is there a F-4BJ variant?
  13. Which kit is easier? 1/48 ZM or Academy F-4J?

    Those are listed for the A/C and probably D. Are there not some subtle differences between those and the J model intakes?
  14. Which kit is easier? 1/48 ZM or Academy F-4J?

    Who makes corrected intakes for the Academy 1/48 F-4J? I looked around and didn't find anything.
  15. Trying to help out a buddy who got a kit with 4 yellowed canopies. Can anyone with clear canopies spare 1-2 for my distraught friend? The kit comes with 4, BTW. Thanks.
