  1. I'm waiting for Kursad over at Caracal to print his SAC B-52G/H decals in 1/144. My plan is to build "SAC Time" 0164 which was based out of Griffiss.
  2. I forgot I have the Italeri B-52H in the stash so I pulled it out and checked the instructions. They call for Aircraft Grey.
  3. I'm trying to determine the official color of the AGM-86 Air Launched Cruise Missile (ALCM) carried by the B-52 but can't seem to find anything on the interweb. Photos on-line appear to be lighter in color that the BUFF is painted. Anyone know what the official F.S. number is? Dark Ghost maybe??
  4. Stunned to hear this news. He will be missed. My condolences to his family.
  5. Are you still looking for these decals and where are you located?
  6. Cool. Thanks for the update and link Hooker. Much appreciated.
  7. Any news on this sheet? In process of building SAC Time.
  8. Thanks Ray. I couldn't find anything else either but was hoping someone on the boards had this kit. I may just take the chance and buy the D/E kit since I'm wanting to build a natural metal version anyhow.
  9. I was hoping to get a look at the actual decal sheet to see if Minicraft included the windshield decal like they did for their B-52D/F kit. If they didn't, I was going to grab the D/F kit.
  10. Does anyone have this kit of the Minicraft 1/144 B-52D/E that they can take a pic of the decals? I have their B-52D/F and want to pick up a second kit but don't know which kit to get. I'm sure they are both the same in the box but was wondering which to get for decals.
  11. With all the upgrades the Bone is getting, I think Habu might be right. I'm guessing they will all eventually get whatever this upgrade is. Thanks for the pics Hooker.
  12. Does anyone know what the black semi-circle marking is on the bottom of the B-1B in front of landing gear/between engine intakes? I've tried to do a search of the interweb and ARC and come up with nothing. And do all Bones have this marking?
  13. Thanks Steve. That helped a lot. I forgot about this search tip. I've used it on other sites before that had less than ideal search engines.
  14. So I don't know why but I can't seem to find the search bar at Shapeways site anymore. I used to spend lots of time searching and just looking for potential new items for some of my builds but now I can't find where they put the search function. It's probably right in front of me and I'm just looking past it. Anyone help??
  15. I've seen a couple YouTube kit reviews where the builder is using a Tamiya Sanding Sponge. Has anyone used these and are they worth the price? How durable are they for reuse?
  16. The blacklist wouldn't matter with this set as you'd only be able to get on ebay or through a private third party seller.
  17. Cutting Edge also did a pretty comprehensive conversion set for the B-26K. It's gotten pretty rare these days and commands a hefty price tag if you can find one. Review here. https://modelingmadness.com/others/detailsets/mesnerce48039.htm
  18. Unknown. This happened after I left in May of '86. They all carried the basic markings like in my two ref photos without the Fairbanks deal on the nacelle. I think the Spirit of Fairbanks was unique to 993.
