  1. Man, this is beautiful, a treat to see! I've learned to love the La-5FN very much, amazing aircraft. Love the subtleties you've achieved even with the very careful and different types of streaking.
  2. Wonderful! I also love MiGs very much, in fact I've been working on a MiG-1 conversion as well. Thank you for posting this!
  3. Truly wonderful, outstanding work! Your extra hard research and work really paid off!
  4. Jeez, didn't know my F-111B book was now a gold mine! Glad I got it when I did.... For me the trouble isn't so much a conversion kit in 1/72 since I have the old Revell "B" nose; the trouble is finding a Hasegawa FB-111 kit for a reasonable price!!!
  5. To my ARC Family of over 20 years now, It's my joy to introduce you to my beloved bride. She is truly the most amazing woman I've ever known, a true gift from above. I was also blessed by fellow ARC'r and longtime friend Brian who absolutely fulfilled the title of "Best Man" like no one I've ever seen....
  6. I used to have about 80+ back in the day. AMAZINGLY I made it down to THREE by this summer. 😎 Then went to NATS and got a few. Well, 5. Don't need any more at my age (50)
  7. Unquestionably a masterpiece, is absolutely stunning! The wait and patience is paying off hugely!
  8. No argument brother, I'm still trying to find my way out of the dark on this. Was tossing out possibilities based on the site above, though still doubting myself. Liking your thoughts on the underside and on the green! Actually having a LHS in which we could go and actually see the paint would be great....
  9. Yeah, but not really a DEEP sky blue....I'm starting to lean more toward 73023, even though it seems awfully dark on the chip....
  10. Ok, so if I'm following this right, it's starting to appear that the AKAN colors would be 73141 (sand yellow), 73055 (green), 73080 or 73097 for the purple-gray sand, and possibly 73008 for the undersides, although it appears awfully blue compared to the very light gray appearance on the planes....
  11. Yep, that's exactly my concern is that since it's possibly French paint (unless they use the same stuff for the MiGs and Sukhois) it wouldn't be an FS number. I figured those are there to get us in the general ballpark, and that there's got to be an alternative....
  12. Wondering where I could get the correct paints for a Libyan Mirage F.1. Note the purplish brown color. Prefer enamels & lacquers, USA-based. Thanks!
