  1. Paypal at the ready! Appreciate your hard work on these old planes...
  2. At the top is the Hasegawa 1/48 Macchi C.202 Folgore (and C.205 Veltro).
  3. Yes, "S" both sides, for Systems Test (corrected above.) NATC also used a stylized "W" for Weapons Test.
  4. I believe the sigmoid S designated NATC Systems Test. Yet another (not complaining) must-have sheet for test and eval fans.
  5. New Roden 1/72 UC-123K due this year, so another Provider sheet to replace the crappy Roden decals?
  6. Please do these sheets in 1/144, as there is literally nothing available. I've had a LS P-3C for many years hoping for new decals. Bob in Louisville
  7. Tutors are impossible to find; maybe at a local US show where nobody wants them, but I've been looking a long time without luck. Cockpit needs to be improved. Uncle Ricks Hobbies in the Pacific Northwest had a nice resin one, but they are long gone. I managed to get a CF-100 in the last couple months for a not-too-outrageous BIN price on eBay, but finding aftermarket decals that are not around $40 each is even worse. May just have to mask/print my own.
  8. Sweet! And a couple QF-4 sheets are a must have for me for the test emblems.
  9. +1 on a Test/Eval F-8 Crusader sheet. Also, I would like to see a Pilatus PC-6B sheet with some US markings to replace the awful Roden sheet. And while we're at it, sheet for the Mohawk in 1/48.
  10. My setup is minimal and nothing fancy: I model in the basement next to a large openable window. When I airbrush I stick a window fan in the window and wear a NiOSH approved respirator (with the replaceable cartridges for organic vapors) that I got on Amazon. Wife is very sensitive/reactive to vapors/fumes/smells, so I gave up vacuforming/resin casting. For painting, I switched to acrylic paints. I mostly model during the summer when I can open the basement window. We have a pleasant screened in porch, so I also use that for gluing/assembly. Bob in Louisville KY
  11. I have two of these sheets; both have yellowed.
  12. Cool! Want all those NATC/PMTC test badges! Have a lot of NATC slides I shot at annual Pax River airshows back in the seventies.
