  1. That looks absolutely gorgeous. I will be waiting for the single seater. I just need to pick up my pace as I have 6 kits in the stash I'd like to build before getting another one. GWH single seat Su-27 and the ZM F-4E late are all I am waiting for to complete my dream. Not sure if it can get any better than these in my lifetime.
  2. Sure. It's been a while so I don't remember all the colors. But I dg around a little bit. Here is what I found. The darkest green (e.g., top surfaces of the wings) is most likely Hobby Aqueous H309. The lighter green (e.g., elevators) is most likely Hobby Aqueous H303 (or may be H302). I am very sure that these greens are Hobby Aqueous and I did not mix any colors for these. There are other greens in smaller sections. Those are mostly in-the-moment mixes of Tamiya and Hobby Aqueous colors (they mix well together). The bluish green on the top of the wings is a mix of Tamiya XF-24,
  3. I am not sure about the exact colors but I think the rudders are more of a brownish color. I did a factory roll-out what-if of the old eagles here: http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/229983-rvl-148-f-15k/ I can't remember if I mention the colors I am using but the build thread may have that info. The references I collected for that build showed quite a bit of variation between different airframes. So just wing it and it should be fine. If you want to be precise but cannot find enough references, I suggest also looking into F-18E/F roll out schem
  4. I see people are piling on you but there is nothing wrong with your suggestion.
  5. I recommend Hobby Boss. Academy plastic is old. Eduard has added lots of photo etch and resin, but there are fundamental issues with the plastic (short overall length, shape issues). Hobby boss is quite satisfactory in terms of surface detail and build ability. I have not ready anything atrociously bad about HB shape, except for the main gear wells.
  6. That looks promising. If possible, can you share a few more pics with preferably a solid color background and include a few closeups? Just wanted to see if there is any 'grittiness' from the adhesive that blurs the light. From what I can see, it looks pretty good. Just wanted to see more. Thanks!
  7. Gabor, this was great news to me. Has the single seater been announced (if so any info on it)?
  8. TTT. Price reduction and/or make an offer on individual sheets.
  9. Hello, the following three decal sets are available as a single package for $25 $20 shipped in the US. Feel free to make offers on the individual sets. I am trying to get rid of these. I prefer PayPal. (1) Caracal 1/48 F-35: http://www.caracalmodels.com/cd48049.html (2) Caracal 1/48 MiG-29 Polish: http://www.caracalmodels.com/cd48029.html (3) Turquoise 1/48 RF-4E Turkish: https://www.cybermodeler.com/hobby/decals/td/decal_td_td5.shtml Thanks.
  10. What a beautiful finish. The painting and weathering are masterfully done. None of the issues you raised is visible to me. Really awesome.
  11. What an incredible build! Everything looks just perfect.
  12. Hello, from the 1/48 Tamiya F-16 kit, I am looking for: - Two 1/48AGM-88 HARM missiles, - Their pylon adapters (part E7), - Decals I am willing to pay $15 shipped to 15090. Please PM me if you can help. Thank you!
  13. Awesome! Do you have a link for the A-6 build progress?
  14. Beautiful model and display! Thanks for the canopy tint ideas as well. They will be handy as I plan my next build.
  15. Getting back to Revell v.s. Italeri. Which one is the best option in terms of accuracy and ease of build? I plan to fully rivet the Italeri kit if I get that one (i.e., the lack of surface detail on Italeri not a problem for me). I know Revell is a much newer mold. And just by looking at the inbox reviews are posted images of finished models, I would certainly go with Revell. But I have read so many issues/complaints about the Revell build that I am considering Italeri. What are your thoughts?
