    CD144016 - 1/144 KC-10 Extender

    Jonah, Nice shot! Here's the same tail number in 1989 with Shamu noseart, but in a different location. https://www.airliners.net/photo/USA-Air-Force/McDonnell-Douglas-KC-10A-Extender-DC-10-30CF/2337583/L?qsp=eJwtjcEKwjAQRP9lzwoWRUtv9Qf04A8sm6EGYhM2K1hK/901eBvePGZWkjwbPvZYCmigClZ50o4KK78qDSspplhN2WKeR7E3J/f60/7Q9RcXa1a7Lo4CG0YRFEP485sG6K9ClbY5%2BUfnAXpvmY5n5yHWkrhtwDgm2rYvUacyAQ%3D%3D https://www.airliners.net/photo/USA-Air-Force/McDonnell-Douglas-KC-10A-Extender-DC-10-30CF/520816/L?qsp=eJwtjcEKwjAQRP9lzwoWRUtv9Qf04A8sm6EGYhM2K1hK/901eBvePGZWkjwbPvZYCmigClZ50o4KK78qDSspplhN2WKeR7E3J/f60/7Q9RcXa1a7Lo4CG0YRFEP485sG6K9ClbY5%2BUfnAXpvmY5n5yHWkrhtwDgm2rYvUacyAQ%3D%3D

    I second AD-4N's suggestion as well as suggesting releasing at least the insignia and lettering in 1/72 scale please. The specific aircraft sets (T-33, F-86, FB-111A) could be scaled down later.

    Airliner conversions - Canadair & Douglas

    Neil, Great news! Look forward to the release schedule in a few months. I should have some additional funds by then, so great timing. Nice Wright Turbo Compound engine block with cylinders. Should satisfy the needs of basic modelers and allow the advanced modelers room for adding detail. Can't wait to see the rest of the items. BTW, was the engine cast or 3-D printed? R/ Dutch
  6. I recently purchased an AMT 1/25 1978 Ford F-150 4x4 pickup kit, the one with Firestone decals. I was wanting to modify it into one a good friend used to own. He had west coast mirrors with CB antennae mounted, a heavy duty rear bumper, no right stowage bin in the bed, and a brush guard with winch on the front bumper. Did AMT or other brand make a pickup truck "customization " kit? I seem to remember in the 1970s that the mainstream kit makers produced these type customizing kits for cars, trucks and vans, as it was the rage back then. Curious. Kindest regards, Dutch

  8. I completely agree. So I haven't built a car/truck kit in 35 plus years, but i had a 60% off coupon for Michael's and bought a AMT 1/25 1967 Ford Mustang GT350 Shelby edition. They were out of planrs, so iIt was the best choice. It'll be a nice break from aircraft for a change. And, more importantly, I have someone to whom I can give it that will appreciate it. As for me, I am amazed at all y"all's models.

    Kursad, I saw a reference to CDB46006 F-15E Data Markings in another post. How many Basics Sherts do you have ready / planned for the near future? Oh wait, I just saw the six sets at the tail end of your 1/48 page. Keep up the great work! R/ Dutch

    1/144 Photo-realistic Window Decals

    Kursad, I second bluedot's suggestion. Here is a photo of my Revell B-52G using some custom ALPS decals for unit markings and your B-52H data decals. In particular, look at the windscreen [photo 56]. I believe that the windscreen could benefit from "photo realistic" effect. Please do not take this as criticism. I am very pleased with your decals. The windscreen decal is a vast improvement over any masking and painting I could have done on the mis-shapen Revell part. Kindest regards, Dutch

    Minicraft 1/144 CFM-56 Engines Available

    At my initial "in box" sprue inspection a few years ago, I thought the Minicraft KC-135R CFM-56 engines to be "close enough." Your comments prompt me to make a closer inspection. I was thinking of using the Minicraft DC-8-7 CFM-56 engines on my Revell KC-135A kits to turn them into R models. Or use them on the Minicraft E-3A/B/C AWACS kit to render an E-3D/F or on the Minicraft 707-320 series of kits to render an E-6A/B/C.
  13. Ray, Hmm, I am always the last to find something out! I may try to modify and recast the wingtip tank/searchlight from the Hasegawa 1/72 P2V-7 kit and add a pylon. Thanks for the inspiration. R/ Dutch
  14. Brother Ray, Beautiful work there! BTW, how did you make the searchlight for the P-3B? I am interested in doing the same for my USNR VP-92 P-3B. R/ Dutch
