  1. Spectre711, PM me with your address. I can send port & stbd, but they are probably just as old as the ones that you already have. Try coating them with clear acrylic floor polish. V/r, Dutch
  2. Okay. That was a stupid question. I should have searched the web first. It looks like all four lenses are red.
  3. Does anyone know the color of the lights on the old Adam 12 Plymouth police cars? The light cans were double ended, one on each side with four lenses. Were all four lenses red? Or were two red and two blue? This would have been circa 1970-71, I think. Thanks, Dutch
  4. Kursad, I have several AModel 1/144 SA/HU-16 Albatrosses and could use some decent decals. Kit decals are not good. Your 1/48 decals are a great candidate for scaling down to 1/72 & 1/144. I am also interested in the RCAF CSR-110 Albatross and early & late USCG decals. K/r, Dutch
  5. Sikorsky designed the H-53 hull to be water tight and for water landings, just like the earlier H-3 & H-52, so skis were redundant. I have seen photos of Norwegian SeaKings landing on snow with main wheels up and letting the sponsons steady the craft. Not sure if the 53 needed wheels up or down for snow landings. During one of our USMC & NATO exercises in Norway circa late 80s, I remember CH-46s coming into the LZ with UC down, but they were fixed. I don't remember any 53s landing, just sling loading with UC down.
  6. Very nice! And, my Modelsvit P-51H arrived on my doorstep today! How's that for karma?
  7. Wayne Mutxa also has an excellent book published by Schiffer.
  8. If WARDOG doesn't have the OV-1 ARMY markings, I can provide. Also I may have some pre-War Dutch markings. R/ Dutch
  9. Kursad, any chance of scaling CD72038: Beriev Be-12 Chaika down to 1:144 scale for the AModel series of Be-12 kits? The kit decals are notoriously bad. For that matter, your three 1:72 C-54/R5D Skymaster decals could be scaled down to 1:144 as well.
  10. Ooorah! Just ordered mine. Looking forward to the legacy Herk release in 1/72. Thanks Dave.
  11. Yes, Johan Ragay is an acknowledged expert on the Kaman HH-43 series. There is also an excellent book by Wayne Mutza on the H-43 published by Schiffer ( I own a copy) that pretty much covers it all. Lastly, I worked with Kaman Helicopters and Johan when compiling the HOK/HTK/HUK/H-43 entries for the Helis.com database. All excellent resources. R/ Dutch P.S. [ I have not entered in the c/n - serial numbers for all the HOK/HTK/HUK/H-43 airframes from my research into the Helis.com database yet. I will try to do so in the coming months. Hmm, which hobby will I work on today?]
