  1. Lex, I have purchased the Flevo Decals set 144-001 for the C-130H/C-130H-30. I will see if I can modify it to fit the MikroMir KC-10 when released. R/ Dutch
  2. Nigel, Lastly, your tanks & pylons look good. You are correct in that the DB / Airwaves pylons TE is a little too "raked," as you put it. And they are also too long. I have requested from Boeing the actual dimensions of the B-52G/H wing tank. Awaiting a response. In the meantime, I have asked a couple of BUFFicianados (is that a word?) here on ARC and SCM. Will see what trickles out. Your tanks nose profile may be a little too pointed. It should be a little more rounded. I applaud your efforts to "accurize" the MC kit. That and an accurate antennae fit is desparately needed.
  3. To continue; you are correct to enlarge the ECM blisters below the cockpit, but I fear you have them a litle oversized. They should be sized somewhere between yours and the original MC mouldings.
  4. Nigel, A couple of comments. These are not criticism, just my eyeball interpretation. After looking at tens of B-52G/H noses with EVS, I think MC got it pretty close. Having said that, the overall shape of their nose profile is wrong. It is too shallow(?), perhaps. Not sur ehwo to describe the shape difference. However, the general side outline of the EVS is pretty good. Additionally, they do not widen at the front, as you have portrayed. They have a fairly constant cross sectional width, just bevelled to contour to the underside of the radome.
  5. No, not chicken, just a little realism setting in. I find myself buying copies of many kits that I have already, if only to build them better from the lessons I have learned and to apply different markings. I already have a stash that I will never get through. So I don't need any new kits at the moment and there is nothing i can't live without. And hey, can I help it if Miss Universe deigned to marry me? 😎
  6. Obviously it's the Southern Hemispere version. The Northern Hemisphere version woudl spin the other way!
  7. We all know about the F-82 Twin Mustang, but how many of you are aware of the F-82S "Spin Mustang?"
  8. And examples of PACAF & ATC subdued badges.
  9. Kursad, Have you already reprinted CD144004 C-135 Family Generic sheet yet? Your website still shows it "Sold Out." Before you reprint it, I have a suggestion. I was noticing that you provide yellow door outlines for the early hi-viz aircraft gray scheme, red outlines for the Shamu scheme, and black outlines for the latest AMC gray scheme. You also provide several set sof early style hi-viz SAC/ACC/MATS/MAC badges and two sets of later low-viz stencil style ANG/AFRC/AMC/AETC badges, but no Smahu era "subdued" badges. Would it be possible to alter one of the later sets (left or right side) to the Shamu era subdued versions of SAC/AFRC/ANG/ATC badges? That would make the sheet infinitely more balanced and usable, unless you include the badges on a Shamu sheet. Thanks, R/ Dutch ANG Subdued AFRES Subdued SAC Subdued
  10. That's the spirit Don! And as soon as you apply the last decal and glue on the last aerial, Minicraft will release their E-6B kit! Go ahead, take one for the team! No really, i wish you all the best with this conversion. Can't wait to see the results. Let me know what specific markings you're after, I may be able to help. R/ Dutch
  11. Top five models I wish for? Hmm.... My wife, every time! 😎 😍
  12. Yes, very nice builds. I like them all.
  13. Nigel, before you go crazy on the MC tanks, reread the discussion on pages 26 & 27 of this thread. After looking at the tanks, I still think the DB/Airwaves tanks are the best. R/ Dutch
