  1. 😂 me and Titan are ol' friends. Bustin' his chops.
  2. More like...why bother, Canada. We got it from here.
  3. Hmmmm 🤔 Maybe for the next go around of B-52 markings:
  4. I gotta think they have this on their short list.
  5. 1/48 P-3 Orion (I'd even settle for a New Tool 1/72 kit) 1/48 PB4Y-2 Privateer 1/48 E-1B Tracker 1/48 C-1A Trader 1/48 RF-8A/G
  6. I'd use some of that flat lead wire, and wrap with copper wire or thin lead wire to replicate the hose not in use.
  7. I try to keep mine under 200 kits...and it's "rotational", I'll sell stuff off, buy new kits that come out. Then there's the "Aftermarket Monster" !!
  8. That is a text book deployment stu'che.
  9. Man...that's a cool as F paint scheme...
  10. Man...does that look like a P-51H? Do you even model, bra??
  11. Hey, alright, too bad I didn't get to meet you. The DC-130 didn't place, and I was certainly not surprised...it's big, it's eye catching but from a judging perspective I knew it had a few "dings" here and there...notably (to me anyway) I had issues with the cockpit glass framing chipping away...paint just didn't want to stay on that clear plastic. Also, I incurred a rub spot from the journey that I had to touch up on the forward fuselage. But all in all I just want to put stuff on the table that's a bit different and tells a story. Had a great time over the four days we were there.
  12. 1/48 C-130s?? 🤷‍♂️...in "hi viz...USN, USMC, USAF 70s/80s. I only suggest this because after recently completing the Italeri 1/48 DC-130, finding decals for it in the hi viz scheme (Warning/Caution, Data etc.) was a huge pain! There are lots of Italeri/Testors 1/48 C-130 kits out there in folk's stashes but the ability to do a 70s/80s USN or USMC, USAF (hi viz type like the "Weather chasers" or "MATS) or even the markings for what is shown on the box, is virtually non existent. The decals in these kits were horrible to begin with; poor print quality, colors that were off, and a dull, thick finish to them that made silvering a guarantee. Add in the age factor and forget it! The sheet in my DC-130 kit was in great shape (that's not them shown above!) but even laying them down on a Gloss Gull Gray surface they were just not usable...I had to resort to using stencil data from an Australian decal maker, "Novascale". They weren't much better, and are ALPS printed...huge suck factor. I used the "star and bar" from the Caracal "Blue Angels Fat Albert" as they are they only game in town for the proper size National insignia for a C-130.
  13. Navy guys like to blab about stuff, if there were any flying...we'd hear about it, especially after a few beers.
