  1. @KursadA, If you are still looking for KC-135R ideas, how about KC-135R 58-0093 "Arctic Cat"of the 42nd BW circa 1991. Here is a link to a beautiful webpage and here is one teaser photo.
  2. Diego, I have these on backorder from Hannants for 5 months now! How much longer please? Kind regards, Dutch
  3. Fair enough! I wasn't complaining, just curious. I hope it does sell out quickly.
  4. True, but the markings were completely different at that point. Gunship gray scheme, n'est pas?
  5. Kursad, One slight correction to your USAF C-130 Decal sheet CD72117: HC-130N Hercules 59-5827 [should be 69-5827] I have noticed that these are all early model Herks: B, D, E & N (modified E). Any plans for a second sheet with later model Herks? K/r, Dutch
  6. Brother Ray! Even more beuatiful than on SCM. [I think the lighting is better here on ARC.] Terrifc work! One of which to be proud, for sure! Kind regards, Dutch
  7. Yeah, I already received the Phantom Phreaks VMFAT-201 Phantom decals from last weekends 15% off decal sale at SprueBrothers. They look nice and I will put them on a Monogram F-4J kit soon.
  8. I just "preordered" the USAF ANG F-4C & the Marine F-4J VMFAT-101 kits from HLJ. They won't be released until Sep & Oct, but I can wait. After all, I have waited 50 years for VMFAT-101 Phantom decals, so what's a few more months!
  9. Scott. No worries mate. You do beautiful work. I have admired your product and build reviews online for years. K/r, Dutch
  10. FWIW, I'll stick with the Academy kit, especially the better weapons and u/c detail, and just remove 5mm from the extended tail, if that is all that it takes for accuracy sake. (It does look a little long on the sprue shot). Still waiting for mine to arrive.
  11. David, I checked my kit and it is a bagged kit without decals. So, I may be in the same boat as you, except I may make it a "What if" scheme. I'm thinking 191st FIS, Michigan ANG (ala F-4C) or 48th FIS (ala F-15A). Sorry, I can't help. K/r, Dutch
  12. Arnaud, I have already started on a SG and have made or not made some upgrades yet. Your several parts list individual prices and then a complete set price. Are you selling parts individually? In that case I may be interested in just picking up the pieces I need to complete my kit. BTW, your parts look very nice! K/r, Dutch
  13. Tom, I feel your frustration about early SAC bands and the UNITED STATED AIR FORCE vs U.S. AIR FORCE lettering on bombers in the 1950s. I am not sure which style band was when. The caption on the left phot is dated 1957 and the caption on the right says 1956, so your theory as to which is earlier may not be correct. Here's a photo of a 509th BW(M) B-47E at Pease AFB circa 1960. Note the SAC band has lots of stars. Not sure when they were finally standardized. K/r, Dutch
  14. Scott, You did a beautiful job on the archaic ex-Hawk T-33 build. You accurately report it's strengths (?)and weaknesses, and note that it still represents a T-33. And you did a beautiful job painting and applying the Caracal decals. Two thumbs up! 😎 Kind regrds, Dutch
