  1. Paul, you are the master. Looks beautiful.
  2. Glad you had a chance to get away and get rejuvenated. We love the work you do and support anything that keeps it coming!!!
  3. Overall shape of the Monogram kit is good, but I agree with the fit. And I don't know what they were thinking with the HUD(!?!). It was actually the first kit that I rescribed the raised panel lines. It shows it's age and you are correct about the fit especially if you try to close the engine nacelle that is designed to display the engine. That being said I think a skillful modeler can make it into a decent representation.
  4. Looks great. One of my favorite aircraft. How did the kit go together? I've built the ancient Monogram version twice and have a couple of Italeri kits waiting in my stash. Normally a big fan of Hasegawa kits but have never even had my eyes on this one.
  5. Just stumbled on to your thread. Amazing craftsmanship. You are a true modeler.
  6. Crown, an amazing job on your T-bird. Very subtle shading in an otherwise monochromatic paint scheme. I echo Kursad's comments. Mike, your NASA starfighter looks like a photo! Great display. Thanks for sharing.
  7. Agreed, Rod. Those are amazing pictures, Jon. I've been scouring the internet for USAF Catalina pictures and this is first time I've seen these pictures. Thanks for sharing. And I think you are right about being redesignated SA-10's.
  8. Here are a couple of OA-10 pictures. It's hard to tell if the b/w picture has the red bands or not.
  9. Looks good. Which kit did you use?
  10. That's where I'm at, too, Paul. My Academy kit is just begging to be an OA-10 Cat. And what is that color?
  11. Curious if anyone else would be interested in 1/72 post war PBY Catalinas, especially USAF Air Rescue Service. Actually, I would like to see a sheet on post war USAF rescue service aircraft: OA-10 Catalina, SB-17 Flying Fortress, SB-29 Dumbo, HU-16 Albatross and the like. Maybe it's just me.😜
  12. It's nice to see some 1/72 helo love. Nice work! Would love to see others posted here.
  13. I thought about that, too, Paul. I do have the KC-135R but I think I want to make that as an "R" model since I was able to snag a copy of the beautiful Caracal decals with the Michigan ANG markings when they were reprinted a few years ago. I also picked up the EC-135 that I was planning to make as an "E" model. I think I might have painted myself into a corner...
