  1. Decals for B-24 "Lady Be Good" ?

    Don’t forget the Twilght Zone episode - “King Nine Will Not Return”. It is one of my favorite episodes of that show and it also featured a B-25. I read that Rod Serling was inspired to write this when he heard about the LBG discovery. -Derek
  2. Mine might be the one I've had on my bench for sometime now - the Mach 2, 1/72 Convair C-131 kit. Nothing fits without a ton of putty and lots of sanding. I've got the fuselage together and smooth after lots of work. Now the wings and engine cowlings are giving me fits. I shuddered when I dry fitted the wing to fuselage joints. "The horror"... To top it all off, I recently noticed that one the (semi) clear windshield pieces is short shot. Oh boy, can this kit get any better?! Thanks Mach 2. -Derek
  3. Oh no, I have this kit in the stash! Looks nice in the box but don't be fooled, eh? -Derek

    I just tried this (I'm using Firefox) and it worked! Thanks for the link!! -Derek
  5. Roden 1/144 C-5

    Ugh. Now I wonder what Roden will charge for their 1/144 C-133 kit that is supposed to be out later this year 😐 -Derek
  6. CD72059 - 1/72 F9F8-T /TF-9J "Twogar"

    Just checking in on your Cougar sheet Kursad. I know you've been very busy with all the new releases out there so hopefully this one hasn't fallen too far by the wayside :) Thanks, -Derek
  7. Airfix B-17G

    Sweet! Looking great so far. What markings are you going to use for your B-17? -Derek
  8. Minicraft B-52D

    Yes, I'd love to see some 1/144 "tall tail" BUFF decals myself. I believe Minicraft is also doing an "F" kit as well. Check out Carl's beautiful test shot build here: http://www.clubhyper.com/forums/groupbuild144frame.htm (it's on page 2) -Derek
  9. Hi, I'm looking for the 1/48 Texas ANG option from Caracal Models sheet # CD48035 (Air National Guard F-4C/D Phantom Part 1). I can trade 1/72 decals or buy. Thanks in advance! -Derek

    Nice! I hope the 1/72 TF-9J Cougar sheet will be among them :) -Derek

  15. microscale 72-330 decal sheet badly needed!

    This thread reminds me that we sure could use a nice, new injected molded F-84F kit in 1/72... :( -Derek
