  1. KursadA, Received the FJ-2 sheets the other day and finally had time to check them out today and they’re perfect! Including markings for pre production airframes goes above and beyond what anyone else would do. Thank you! Also, thank you for your time, effort, and willingness (when feasible) to listen to your customers. Best regards, Jim S
  2. I am intrigued by the possibilities 3D printing brings to our hobby. The draw (pardon the pun) to me would be for improving kit parts, possibly in place of resin parts, or possibly conversions that could be adapted to kits. I recently started following an Instagram member who is cranking out nicely detailed 1/72 aircraft. He claims to be using Autodesk Fusion 360 to design his projects.The only thing I find disappointing is all of the time creating and printing to produce a model with a vacuform canopy.
  3. Yes I understand. You have to draw the line somewhere. Safe travels!
  4. Think Testors also makes a decal bonding spray but your best bet is to locate some aftermarket decals. I believe the Grand Phoenix kit had Eagle Strike decals but I’m not sure....I would offer my kit decals but because the kit is the same age as yours, the decals are probably in a similar state. I know Print Scale has a 1/48 Firefly I sheet (48-058) but can’t vouch for the quality. Found these also but can’t vouch for quality. 1001 modelkits link
  5. Sorry the hear of you continue struggles. Microscale makes a decal “Saver”, basically airbrush it over the old decal sheet. Microscale MI-12 I used to use this on laser printed decals. Hope this helps, Jim S
  6. Hello, For what it's worth you might be able to open the canopy to lessen the step like this photo- Agapemodels build Barracuda Studios offers a vacuform canopy (and other accessories) for the Firefly- Barracudacals search Need to fill the search box for Firefly... Hope this helps. Jim S
  7. Hello, The models are imaginative and distinctive, the profiles are eye catching and plausible. Really like the JASDF Crusader, USMC Hunter (weakness for gloss sea blue I guess) and the Mudhens. Thank you for taking the time to share. Jim S
  8. Bump from a satisfied customer. Deal with confidence. 👍 Thank you Gary!
  9. Simply stated... Thank you very much Sir!
  10. The canvas alone is awesome. The lightning takes it over the top.Hope you enjoy your project for years to come!
  11. Article with independent images-The/Drive Doesn't make much sense to integrate the IRST with a jettison-able fuel tank but on a plane that costs $18,000 an hour to fly maybe I'm just being a cheap old bastard.
  12. The mineral Zinc helps keep the immune system strong.
  13. Email sent regarding the 1/72 scale Nates and the 1/32 scale Raiden/Jack.
  14. Hello, Purchased the new AEW Skyraider mail order from Hannants, prop was broken and the missing blade wasn’t in the bag. Sent an email to Sword with a pic, fast response to the email, had a replacement propeller within 12-13 days of my email. Czech Republic to California. Awesome. I like the snail mail thank you card idea too. Jim S
