  1. Oh, I forgot to mention that CanMilAir and Canuck Decals both issued CF-100 sheets in mutilple scales, but both are OOB since 2019.
  2. Kursad, It is true that of the 692 CF-100 Canucks built, almost all served with the RCAF from 1952-1968 and a few continued to solder on with the CAF from 1968-1982. Fifty-three MK.5s flew for Belgium in three squadrons from 1957-1962. (One crashed prior to delivery.) Consider that that both Hobbycraft released several thousand kits & Astra a few hundred in 1/72 scale and Hobbycraft also released several hundred in 1/48 scale. Consider also that the Hobbycraft decals were essentially useless from the start. Next consider that Skylancers only released approximately 500 sets of the v
  3. Darren Roberts (Steel Beach) already answered me in the Jets thread, but he may not be able to find any. So I am still looking.
  4. Thanks Darren. Yeah, I figured that I would have a hard time finding any with an item number as low as 72001. 😎
  5. So after doing a little searching on the interweb, I found that Steel Beach released SBA72001 F/A-18A/B./C./D FOD (intake) covers. They also have a selection of 1:48 scale Hornet covers as well. While I can find a few 1:48 sets available, I cannot find any 1:72 FOD covers. Iam looking for a set to go along with my CF-188 project. K/r, Dutch
  6. So after doing a little more searching I found that Steel Beach released SBA72001 F/A-18A/B./C./D FOD (intake) covers. They also have a selection of 1:48 scale Hornet covers as well. While I can find a few 1:48 sets available, Icannot find any 1:72 FOD covers. Can anyone give me a hand please? K/r, Dutch
  7. Gary, A new Russian outfit called "Bring It" is releasing a slough of 1/72 & 1/48 C-130 extras, including the NP2000 8 blade props in both scales. Look for them on ebay. $17.80 +$6.50 shipping gets you 4 props, so maybe you could split with some one else or build two E-2Ds? K/r, Dutch
  8. Do you mean Italeri/Testors F-19 ficticious stealth fighter or Monogram F-20 Tigershark? Click either link for a downloadable copy from SCM.
  9. Impressive and courageous I would say! Tom you have tackled the horizontal stab issue nicely. Better than I would have, particularly when it is already assembled. I recently attempted to build a "freebie", not caring for too much detail, just wanting to get assembly done, paint and decals on. The "freebie" was the old Hasegawa 1/72 F-105D Thunderchief. I assembled it well enough, and masked and painted it reasonably well, but when I looked at it from on the nose, the vertical stab was aligned 5-7 deg to stbd and the nose twisted 5-7 deg to port making the wings slant to port and the horiz
  10. Kursad, Are thinking of including SC & TN ANG zippers as well? K/r, Dutch
  11. Amen! Couldn't have said it better.
  12. Tom, I agree with you on using Microscale Crystal Clear for the cabin windows. Definitely beats masking. I may have installed the windows and puttied over them, then used decals, but this is 1/72 scale and clear windows will make a better impression. As to the wing-fuselage seam. If you look at your fourth photo (the underside shot) and carefully check, it looks like the leading edge of the starboard wing joins the fusleage forward of the port wing root. So your decision to align the wings at the rear was a wise choice. Additionally, I noticed that the leading edg
