  1. VT ANG...welp, Looks like I'll have to "Pthe T" on a Meng F-35A. 😀
  2. Hey thank you. Yes, we were all griping about display space...*Bing!!* show idea! The guys at "Just Making Conversation" spoke of it as well the previous week.
  3. I rotate the stock. Right now, I don't have a lot of shelf space (enough for 35 1/48 single engine prop, and two engine jet sized aircraft). When I finish a new one, I typically make a spot for it by taking one of the older ones off and storing it in plastic bins in the garage. A few of those older ones go back 20 or so years, and are not done to my standards of today, so I have stripped them for parts and tossed a couple here and there too. By the time they go to storage, the enjoyment of building them has been experienced, the lessons learned harnessed, they've been to contests/shows, d
  4. I'm looking for the KA-6D markings from the A-6E Desert Storm sheet 48080 from Afterburner decals. Surely willing to pay for your troubles!
  5. I've gotten away from all of that. Back in the early 90s, with aftermarket exploding, I'd put off builds until I had EVERYTHING that could go into/onto a particular model. Around the mid 2000s or so I realized, no, I don't "need" all this stuff, especially with most jet kits out there...an aftermarket resin seat is about all I need to dress up a cockpit. I was getting away from it being fun to build a kit and knew I should correct.
  6. Not exactly sure of the date on the photo but in the text of "NAS South Weymouth, The Defender of Freedom" by Marc J. Frattasio, it states that all HUP-2 Retrievers were replaced by HSS-1s (H-34s) by the end of 1958.
  7. Looking for one of the following sheets in order to do a 1991 Gulf War aircraft: Model Alliance - MA72158 Xtradecal - X72081 Thanks guys!
  8. Paul, just checked my P-3 decals...no dice. I'm pretty sure the only VP-47 sheet was the one in the Hasegawa boxing. Can't say I've ever seen their marking otherwise...and like you mentioned, it's the lo-viz scheme but a hi-viz "tail flash". In the meantime, both Caracal (check his thread under the Caracal heading) and Furball are supposed to be doing P-3 Orions in the future.
  9. Nice! Looking forward to the FB-111A SIOP schemes, and the FJ-3 for the kit I just picked up!
  10. Might be a good time to jump into this subject...50th Anniversary scheme: https://i.postimg.cc/Vsr43GDz/199768336-4768218763207134-2571764782245485226-n.jpg
  11. 1/48 (or even a new tool 1/72nd...) P-3 Orion 1/48 PB4Y-2 Privateer 1/48 RF-8A/G 1/48 F11-F Tiger 1/48 F7U Cutlass
  12. I typically sign and date the inside prior to closing up the fuselage. 🤷‍♂️
