  1. ADC Gray.
  2. If the photo is not digitally altered, then I would say the third aircraft (VA-205) shows the most solid hue for the Grey FS. Then again, I might be wrong.
  3. Now, you have mentioned a "sensitive" subject there! I've been trying to gather decals' sheets since the late 90s. NOT an easy task! On the other hand. making my own decals is quite difficult because even though I have an A3 printer, it doesn't print decals that well. Now, things are a bit better BUT, the luck of cash flow is a matter!
  4. I think you're referring to me! My aim is to do all the US NAVY Adversary paint schemes that the T/A-4 have used, from the early 70s 'till the mid-90s, in 1/72, 1/48, and 1/32. "God willing and money permitting" I might succeed!!!
  5. Hi Rex, You write, " to get the right combination of parts to give the versions that we want ". Looks like you're into some heavy "surgering"!!! I see your point on evaluating ESCI's kit as the most accurate - as far as it concerns dimensions - but, how accurate-dimensionally is it's cockpit? Have you tried to put one of those aftermarket ejection seats in the cockpit? Did it fit? I have the impression that the Fujimi cockpit has more accurate cockpit dimensions. Looking forward to read more of your research and work on the subject! By the way, are you planning to do a similar project for other aircrafts? For instance, for the F-4?
  6. Hi Rex, Just a quick question. When researching the subject, did you compare Fujimi's parts (wings / fuselage) with drawings in 1/72? (I know for example, that the Italeri kit is a bit underscale) By the way, you have opened a very interesting topic, as I am also a Skyhawk fanatic!
  7. Hi Dann,


    How are you?


    Just a few quick questions.


    Do you accept PayPal?

    Do you ship items outside the US? If so, how much it would cost to send the ESCI F-104G/S $13 to Athens, Greece?


    Thank you for your time.


    Best regards,


  8. Hi Dann, You've got pm.
  9. Tough subject Richard, Unless there is a vacuform set, I don't think you will find someone that doesn't need the kit's clear parts. Nevertheless, hope you'll find it.
  10. Hey guys, I'm looking for the following parts from the ESCI RF-4C/E; tail's slated wings. http:// Send me a pm for further details. Many thanks.
  11. Still have a half-build vacuformed T-2C Buckeye in 1/48 (I don't even remember the company that has produced it!). Even though, I was excited when I got it 20-something years ago, the lack of references / resources and the difficulty that this category of scale models present, have made me put it aside and either wait for something better or, for some better references. Now, that there are both available, I don't have the time to commit! So, my advice would be, if you're looking for a rare subject then yes, vacuformed kits are the best and only solution but, you need to have the skills, resources, and patience to work with these scale models.
  12. Hi Mike, Great news!!! Looking forward to see the 1/72 Privateer detail set on sales again!!!
  13. I see no nose-art (a Pin-Up preferably!) on the fuselage and I'm beginning to worry!!!!
  14. If you have any nose-art photos, do share with us!
