  1. Good luck with the move and we hope you come back to producing great resin products sometime in the future. I literally just finished putting your ECM Blisters on my Revell Tomcat 5 minutes ago. Top notch stuff for sure!
  2. Especially with that fat SB ring weighing you down!! Signed, A jealous Pats fan😢
  3. Done. Request sent via messenger.
  4. I think it’s great stuff. I’ve recently used the .010 on a 1/72 KC-135R and a 1/48 C-2A Grayhound for the HF antennas. The .010 looks really good on 1/72 kits but appears a tad thin on 1/48 kits. I’m ordering .020 to remedy that. Its similar to a fine thread, very smooth and extremely elastic.
  5. I suppose it would be entirely subjective and what ‘looks right’. Real-time rivet spacing is usually around 1 inch depending on diameter of the rivet used so in actuality replicating that would be impossible. I’d prolly roll with the .50,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, see what I did there?
  6. Sweet!! Thanks Kursad! You’re sure making us New England boys happy the last few sheets!!
  7. An admirable tribute indeed. Can’t wait to see it!
  8. Thanks boys!! Your turn, let’s see some AMT KC’s with Caracal decals!!
  9. Thanks Dutch! It’s not perfect by any stretch but I’ve GOT to start building AND finishing these things or my stash will out live me!!
  10. Yes sir, but it only came with one set of General markings. I used them for the 157th ARW jet but need several more general markings sets for the other awesome subjects on the sheet.
  11. Yes, all the options on this sheet are AMC gray.
  12. Any word on this sheet Kursad? I need the basic stencils to do my MAINEiacs build, no pressure 😜
  13. Finished my NHANG KC-135R using this sheet. Literally the best decals on the market I might add. The decals went down smooth using future as a setting solution. I was worried about the nose decal wrapping around the radome and up under the sliding window because of all the angles but they were literally perfect! I botched the decal above the wind screen but it was my fault. I had it basically perfect but tried to move it one last time,,,,,,, and promptly tore it and was never able to get it back to where it needed to be. Awesome job Ku
  14. I don’t know the exact size but Caracal’s B-52 sheet 72077 has a SIOP scheme. His research is top notch so they should be the correct size.
  15. It looks like the artist fixed the underside but that tan isn’t supposed to be there.....
  16. It looks like only 2 racks are included. They’re pretty vanilla but they’ll mostly be hidden anyway.
  17. Sorry, I thought you asked what was is the Early G boxing. The Late G has the ALCM’s and AGM-109 Tomahawks.
  18. 8 x B28 gravity nukes, VG, I’m impressed with you scratch building skills! Well done my friend!
  19. That’s correct, Murph. The MC early G properly omitted the 40 inch plug and added the optical lense for the tail gun.
  20. The G correction set supplied by MC corrected the nose, tail gun (with 40 inch plug) and strakelets (wing root fairings). Most also came with new flaps with tracks since the original kit flaps didn’t.
  21. I’ll see what I can dig up for you but Caracal is supposed to include a Loring bird on part two of his B-52G/H sheet later this year.
  22. I experimented a bit with an old 1/72 kit this morning, thanks to motivation from @janman The kit was original built 20 years ago and painted with MM Olive drab FS34087, no weathering or washes, just clear coated with Testors Dullcoat. The decals had silvered and the seem work was terrible so it seemed a suitable sacrificial lamb. What I'm trying to achieve is a finish similar to the one below. A well worn "Dirty D" look. You can see that the green CARC paint weathers and fades relatively quickly in service. Random touch-ups were added from CARC rattle cans by the crews. Add l
  23. I guess it all depends if it’s released as an American F or Export F. I hadn’t realized the two were so drastically different. The Canadians opted for enlarged fuel cells, weather radar nose and no IR louvers covering the C-box cooler, engine vents and dog house vents. I hadn’t realized that before. If I were a betting man I’d say we get the straight F and later we get the enlarged fuel tanks and radar nose with the MH release. Leave off some antennas and refueling probe and Bamm! CH-147F Pure speculation though.
