  1. Sheets are on sale. Website is updated and the buttons are hot! Mark S.
  2. Gentlemen, Time for the fall release from Wolfpak Decals. Sheet 72-130, Dragon Wings. First up is a F-16CM from the 480th FS with plenty of mission marks from Spangdahelm. Our second subject is a F-100D from the Royal Danish Air Force. A F-15C from the 110th FS, Missouri ANG at St. Louis follows. The markings are for the fini-flight for this type with the 110th. This squadron becoming an Associate B-2 squadron and moving to Whiteman AFB. Three more aircraft from Denmark are next. A fighter, reconnaissance, and trainer variants of the Draken in RDAF service. For those who like props a night fighter version of the F4U-2. It carried the radar pod on the right wing. This example from VMF (N)-532. An AD-5 from VMA-331 follows. Last but not least is a Dash-8 is U.S. Army markings. You have a choice of the transport version as acquired by the service or later markings when it was converted int a reconnaissance aircraft. Sheet 72-131, Flying Fiends, Once again we lead with a F-16CM, This time it is in the 100th anniversary markings of the 36th FS at Osan in Korea. A F-14A in grey blue camouflage from the Iranian Air Force is next. In the eggplant scheme from VFC-12 a two seat F-18B is our third subject. A F-4E from the 487th TFS of the 51st TFW at Taegu. Finally a F-86E from the 36th Fighter Bomber Squadron at Suwon. Sheets will sell for $18.50 USD and should be available in a week or so. Mark S.
  3. The kit that I would release would be pylons only. It will be up to the modeler to make any other corrections and or additions to the Revell-Monogram B-1B. The modifications to correct the kit have been well documented. I may include the camera pod if I can find a good photo of it. Camera pods or arrays were and are test specific. Only one B-1B carried these pylons for the integration of the AGM-129. After captive carry and jettison tests but before any live launches the program was terminated. I would be surprised if ModelCollect would include them in a kit.
  4. Jonah, The numeral 28 on the nose gear doors and "ED" tail codes. I can throw the markings on a Wolfpak sheet. Mark
  5. Ray, Yes, 1/72 scale. Mark
  6. Gents: B-1B No. 28 was used for integration testing of the AGM-129 ACM. Here are photos of the aircraft with the pylons in place. It was the only B-1B to carry cruise missiles externally. Does anyone have interest in a set of these? I'm looking at doing them for myself and would have more cast if there is interest. My guesstimate of the cost would be between $25 and $35 for a 6 pylon set for one aircraft. Mark S. Spectre Resins Wolfpak Decals
  7. Gentlemen, The decals are in, website updated and the buttons are hot! Here's a link to the page showing sheet 72-065 describing the sheets which I found in the bin and are on sale. http://millcreekconsultants.com/WP72-A-065.html Mark S.
  8. I recently purchased their cruise missile kit to find that they forgot about the engine inlets on the AGM-129. How can you miss that?
  9. Darren and Ben, Thanks for the information and clarifications. Dutch, Got to think about it. 1/144 hasn't been my strong suit. Flyboyf18, I will have plenty of these sheets at Chattanooga.
  10. Trojan thunder, As luck would have it I found a small quantity of sheet 72-065 in a bin. It has a RB-47H and SAC F-84G amongst other subjects. Will put it on sale at the same time I place these sheets on sale. Think they'll go fast so place your order for 72-065 as soon as it's available.
  11. Gentlemen, Here’s Wolfpak’s August, 2019 Release: Sheet 72-128, GIANT VOICE. This sheet starts out with options for 2 ADM-20 Quail decoys and one test drone. Next up from 1976 is a Bicentennial F-111A from the 474th TFW at Nellis AFB. The camouflaged version of the AGM-28B follows. From this past February the latest markings for the F-117. Could not find any information on the unit flying these jets or their mission. The all-white painted AGM-28B follows with options for those which carried the SAC shield and those which did not. As with the camouflaged one there are markings for two aircraft. I was fortunate in receiving the markings diagrams from the SAC version of the T.O. 1-1-4 for both the Quail and Hound Dog. The QF-100D on this sheet had a former life as Thunderbird ONE and is suitably marked. Note the curved orange panel on the nose reminiscent of the artwork on the Thunderbirds. It also carries “ONE” as the lead aircraft did and a small stylized Thunderbird insignia on the forward fuselage. Last but not least is the Giant Voice Bomb Comp winning B-47E of the 341st BW, Abiline AFB, now known as Dyess AFB from the summer of 1958. Sheet 72-129, ISN’T IT A DAISY, This sheet begins with “FLIR CAT” a F-14B from VF-103 when they were known as; “The Sluggers.” A well worn and dirty A-10C with a plethora of mission marks from the 354th FS follows. This unit participated in the Syrian operations. The CAG jet from VFA-113, Stingers is our next subject. Not many Pacific based jets have mission marks as this one. Next up is a New Jersey ANG F-105B. You may remember this unit for their later tiger artwork on their F-4E’s and KC-135R’s. To wrap up this sheet a JA37 Viggen from the Swedish Air Force in special “Petter Gul” markings. From 2003. These sheets will be on sale next week for $18.50 each. Mark S.
  12. I was wondering if you were going to reprint the Missile Marking sheets. I have a few already, but they are raipidly being used up.

    Thanks for your efforts.

  13. Gentlemen: The sheets are in, website updated and the buttons are hot! Thanks Jacub! Mark S.
  14. Here is what is in the write-up to date: Notes for modelers: The easy way to distinguish the D from the D+ in photos is to look at the tail boom. The D had whip antennas and the D+ had blade antennas; although it still retained the antenna wire from the fuselage to the horizontal tail. This aircraft was equipped with RWR antennas on the nose and underneath the tail booms, and the sponson mounted 7.62mm machine guns were mounted for combat operations. For self defense chaff/flare dispensers were mounted on the tail booms and an AN/ALQ-144 “disco-light” IR jammer could be fitted. The D model also had infrared suppressing exhaust stacks. As with the earlier OV-10A, the D model was unusual in not mounting the gunsight on the coaming, instead it was suspended from the inside of the windscreen bow.
  15. Jake, I could not find definitive information on the OV-10D+ nor a list of serial numbers. If you would share what you have I and I'm sure the rest of the community would appreciate it. Mark S.
