  1. He posted in Sept: "Things are slowing down. What’s happening? Mark Tutton is working on three 1/32nd and two 1/48 AH-1G decal sheets for the ICM/Special Hobby kits." With that many in the works, doubt I'll bother releasing my own.
  2. At the time, I never planned one day I'd make decals so I wasn't intentionally getting pics of all sides of all airframes and unfortunately the only pics of 03's left side I took were partial views, thankfully due to taking loads of pics in general. Here's another right side of 03 that wasn't included: Here's another one from a different day:
  3. Thanks - hope to see some completed builds Had planned on it since the Vietnam AH-1G is a favorite but unfortunately I still haven't had the time to get to them like I had hoped to, not sure if/when I'll do them at this point. As I recall though, Floyd/Werner Wings already announced I thought that he's releasing sheets for the Cobra.
  4. The 1/35 Seahawk family sheets are now available. https://www.aoadecals.com/
  5. Here's a USN example, rear wall here too looks (to me) to be a dark grey metallic. Also unlike the pics above of Army/USCG, for Navy the work platform interior is (usually) green/yellow, this specific one below including the front support edges, others like the second/third pics instead with black there.
  6. As you probably figured out by now, that artwork isn't accurate with the gun pods (or the VMFA-122 markings), the three pods should be HIPEGs. I believe in the same book, or one of the other older SS F-4 books, there is a photo caption that also mentions SUU pod when it's clearly a HIPEG in the photo. Although troublesome, use of the HIPEG was common enough with USMC F-4 and A-4 squadrons in Vietnam, also OV-10s. VMFA-122 only wired a handful of F-4Bs to use the guns on the wing pylons, I don't remember the number now offhand but as I recall too it wasn't used for that long in that configurati
  7. I wonder why the MH-53E gets the re-release attention instead. I too wish they would repop the CH-53E instead. Similarly, the early H-46 series too while they're at.
  8. Finally got around to completing this USN H-60 release, and it expanded greatly since starting last summer before being put on hold - will be two large releases plus full airframe data/stencil sheet. They're at the printers now so looking at a Q4 2022 release. Part 1 (AOA 35-003) covers the SH-60B, SH-60F, HH-60H, and MH-60R: SH-60B: HSL-43 Battle Cats (2011) HSL-48 Vipers (2013) HSL-51 Warlords (2011) SH-60F: HS-5 Nightdippers (2012) HS-11 Dragonslayers (2015) HH-60H: HS-5 Nightdippers (2012) HS-11 Dragonslayers (2015) MH-60R: HSM-46 Gran
  9. As title says, is Crossdelta still in business? Looking for their "old" 1/48 F-16C stiffeners, not sure if should give up waiting for restocks. thanks
  10. Oops try this http://www.modelwarships.com/reviews/books-plans/aircraft-pictorial/06-F4BN/Book Review_F4BNPhantomII.htm
  11. As others said, it depends on when/where. Here's some examples of the different CAUTION colors (and difference style of data markings) for upper surfaces. For these three cases, warning colors were all red (red WARNING and red text). edit: there are exceptions of course, and the below isn't meant to be an "all" statement that every a/c followed this color or stencil after first repaint (also seen examples showing red WARNING but with black text). An original McD factory data (this would be as provided by fundekals), cautions are all black: A depot repa
  12. If applicable, airframe data stencils would've been applied during the depot repaint, not added later on at squadron level. That particular 153009 airframe and time period you're asking for it had very minimal airframe data stencils. Here's a scan from the Classic Warships F-4B/N book review on modelwarships showing better views of 3009 at the same period (1971). In the full size book it's more clear, you can only see only a very few were applied, like the caution at the wing fold for example: http://www.modelwarships.com/reviews/books-plans/aircraft-pictorial/06-F4BN/CWF4B_N_0007.jp
  13. For T-45s just look at the tail codes to tell where they're from. T-45s are only based at three air stations (plus flight test at Pax River MD): NAS Meridian MS - A NAS Kingsville TX - B NAS Pensacola FL - F So you'll want to look for any with a B on the tail. There are none stationed at NAS Corpus Christi, but you'll see them there in/out (and at other areas in the US, both military and civilian airports doing training).
  14. The three OV-10A sheets are now in stock and available at https://www.aoadecals.com/
  15. Not sure about USN but there's some Desert Storm pics showing LAU-10 5" rocket pods on TERs that I can't find right now, from VMA(AW)-224 I believe. Realize we're talking A-6E, but for general info to show some TERs on A-6, here's some on A-6As, similarly primarily used for rocket pods like in the first/second pic but also the occasional bomb load in third pic:
