  2. My 20 year-old half-used jug of "Future" floor care is starting to coagulate and is no longer usable. I know there has been much discussion of this for the last few years but can't find anything using a quick search (ok, I'm just lazy...). What is the name that it now marketed under and where can I buy some? TIA Mongo

  4. This kit # 9066. US seller only. Shipping to 45102. Thanks.
  5. A little drop of super glue makes nice insulators. Paint it white after it cures. Also, I use fine "smoke" colored "invisible" thread for antenna wire; it's used for hemming pants and is available at any sewing shop. I use a single edge razor to carefully "split" the top of a post antenna and lay the thread into the vee created. Put in a dab of super glue and pinch together until cured. If the antenna wire terminates into a fin, wing top of fuselage, make an insulator with a "cone" created with a bit of round Evergreen/Plastruct stock with a fine hole drilled into it. Anchor with super glue. I have found that it helps to "rough up" the invisible thread by rolling the spot where it will be super-glued on a bit of 320 grit sandpaper; the rough-up surface seems to ho;d better.
  6. BTW Mike, if your deal with other respondents falls through, I have one of those kits available if you still need one. Mongo

  8. I am looking for the B-28 gravity nukes from the Modelcollect B-52G (UA72207). I have another release of this kit that includes the ALCMs and would like to trade those for the B-28s. Alternatively, I'll buy your leftover B-28s if you're willing to part with them as well as any associated bomb bay parts. Please e-mail me direct: mongo01 -at- twc -dot- com TIA Mongo Cincinnati

  10. Greets All; I am collecting information for a somewhat ambitious modeling project and have encountered questions I cannot answer from my resources. Therefore I come here to the Great Source of Knowledge and Truth... Since the specific aircraft I want to model are not represented in aftermarket (or kit) decals I have to cobble together my own collection of markings. I have gone to my collection of aftermarket decals and found a wide variety of sizes of insignia and code letters; those sources only raise more questions... 😕 Was there a "standard" size for RAF letter-codes? Specifically, I am inquiring about Hurricanes in the Jun 40 to Sep 41 time frame and the transition from the dark earth/dk green/sky schemes to the dk green/dk sea gray/med sea gray schemes. Same question for Spitfires; was there a "standard" size for code letters after the Aug 41 paint scheme transition? Also, I have the same question regarding Luftwaffe aircraft. I have some references that show specifications for insignia size that are type-specific as well as unit code lettering. Specifically, I'm doing a Do 17E-2 and Ju 87B-1 in Sep 39. Can anyone offer info stating specific insignia size and specifications for code letter sizes for those type aircraft? Thanks in advance for any help you can offer. Mongo Cincinnati
  11. Thanks for the informative response. I have some additional questions in researching for my project. Would it be possible to continue this discussion privately? If you are interested, please e-mail me directly at: mongo01 -at- two -dot- com Thank you Jeff
  12. Greetings All; I'm embarking on a project to research and make a model of an MS.406 aircraft flown by Polish pilots during the Battle of France May-June 1940. My background, understanding and resources for the French AF are minimal. I'm hoping that the Great Storehouse of Knowledge among ARC members can give me some insight and direction: 1. How was the French AF organized in May 1940? Can anyone explain the nomenclature/abbreviations used for the various units? 2. From my observations, it appears that there was no "standard" camouflage pattern for French aircraft. Was that the case; were French aircraft camouflage patterns unique to each aircraft? Or were there several standard patterns (ala the RAF A, B, C & D patterns)? Thanks for any isight you can offer! Jeff "Mongo" Cramer Cincinnati
  13. Buongiorno! Thank you for your response to my posting. Can you please tell me the issue numbers of the Replic magazines you are offering and at what price you are offering the magazines? Please respond directly to my personal e-mail: mongo01@twc.com Grazie, Jeff Cramer Cincinnati, USA
