  1. Thanks again everyone. I'll see what I can do in either matching or finding a source. Again thanks.
  2. Thanks. Would you happen to know any company that ships to the USA where I could get it? I'm doing the RAF Eurofighter 100 anniversary. If not, do you have some thoughts on what paints might make good candidates for mixing? Thanks again for the reply.
  3. I'm looking for a source of RAF Squadron 3 green paint and rescue yellow paint. I know Xtracolor makes both of these paints; however, I'm in the USA and I cannot find a source of it. Hannants confirmed that they cannot ship to the USA anymore enamels. So now, I'm completely at a loss of what options I have. I try to always use Gunze Mr. Color. I'm not sure if there's a color for either of these. If so could someone share what the Mr. Color number is? If not Gunze Mr. Color, what other companies make these shades of paints? Thanks for any help.
  4. Is H22 darker or lighter than the Dark Admirality color? I could always get both lines. Although I would rather just use the Mr. Color. Thanks for your help.
  5. Can someone help me out? I'm about to start the 1/32 Revell Eurofighter. I am trying to find the Gunze Mr. Color equivalent to Barley Grey and Admirality Grey. I found that these were the 2 colors for the RAF Eurofighter. But I can't find the colors in Gunze Mr Color. Anyone know what the Gunze numbers are or what the mixed colors are for these colors? Thanks.
  6. Great, I'll try that e-mail address. I thought I did, but maybe I didn't. Thanks.
  7. I'm looking for a set of 1/32 F-15I decals. I'm looking for the set that includes the bird of prey on the tails of the F-15I. Not sure if the bird is an eagle, falcon, hawk, etc. Please let me know if you have a set and / or you know where I might be able to find a set. Thanks.
  8. I'm trying to find a set of 1/32 F-15I decals ideally the set with the bird of prey (Not sure if it's an eagle or falcon or ???) on the tails. Anyone know who is making these decals? I know Sky did making them (Sky No. 23/24/25), but they appear to be out of print. I e-mailed Sky but never got a response. I can only find that Sky ever made the set. Anyone know of another company that makes them, a seller that has the Sky decals in stock, or a good alternative. Right now I can't find any 1/32 F-15I decals. Here's the link to the review of the set I'm looking fore. http://www.aircraftresourcec
  9. Thanks all. I was think I would like to have a studio scale Millenium Falcon for my theater / game room. I was thinking since the Fine Scale 1/72 is a great model it might be possible to scale it up to studio scale. Again thanks to everyone who commented on what would be required to do this and the cost. It sounds like it's not doable anytime soon especially if a person would have to order it - Lucas (Disney) would never allow that, at least I don't see them doing so.... Disney might do it; but charge about 10x what it cost.
  10. I know 3D printers are still very expensive and not a practical purchase for most at this time. I am wondering as 3D printers become cheaper (within 5 years I'm guessing), would it be possible to build some of the models in large scale that currently exist in small scale. Models I'm thinking of are things like SCIFI models and ship models. I was thinking it may be possible to scale up model / model parts from existing gets to studio scale or at least to a larger scale. I'm not sure what would be required, possibly a 3D scanner too. But if existing models / model parts could be scaled up and do
  11. Thanks everyone for your comments. I may take the leap anyway.
  12. I'm interested in building a 1/32 Trumpeter Harrier... I'm not to concerned on specific jets. I'm curious if Trumpeter fixed any of the shape issues in the later models. I remember reading when the first Harrier was release that it had all kinds of mis-shape issues. I'm not a rivet counter, but would like it to be pretty correct in shape and dimensions. I will admit my skills are not up to snuff to start cutting styrene to majorly change the delivered product. Thanks.
  13. Just wondering if anyone has done one of the Golden Dragons in 1/32 scale in the blue scheme (looks similar to a light Blue Angel blue)? I purchased these decals and starting to plan a build with the Academy F/A-18. I almost always use Mr Color so the color codes are the codes I need However, the blue color shows two possible combinations (1:1) 65+328 ? (1:3) 72+328. Any idea on which combination is the accurate? Thanks.
  14. I hate to start a thread to request something but I can't find an aftermarket decal set. I am finishig the Trumpeter 1/32 F/A-18F. I've been building it mostly out of the box using the Diamondbacks decals. Last night I had disaster strike when decal 121 (the white stripe with red diamonds crossing the in front of the windsreen) crumbled. Normally, I could work it back in to place but this one literally cracked into at least 30 pieces. So, my request is if anyone is not using this decal could I purchase it from you? If not, is there an aftermarket set? I checked with some of my favorite online
  15. Back in the early 2000s, I worked at National Training Center (NTC) Fort Irwin, CA. This was when we were only training large force on force in the desert. We had Red Air fly out of Nellis and would do simulated ground pounding. Likewise, we would have blue Air flying from Nellis doing CAS, FAC, interdiction, etc out of Nellis and out of China Lake. It was always pretty cool when the A-10s were flying a few 100ft above the main road to get to Fort Irwin. Hope this helps.
  16. Thanks for the replies. I was hoping someone bought the molds and would re-pop them. I've seen the set on ebay sometime ago but I was out bid. To be hoenst, I wouldn't think this set would be indemand. Maybe I'll just build out of the box. I know the kit is old and has lots of problems but I doubt I'll find a resin kit anytime in the future for a "reasonable" price. Thanks again for the info. Don - I noticed you are in Clarksville, TN. I lived there for years - graduated Fort Campbell High. My mom and sisters still live in Clarksville and I visit them a few times a year. Dave
  17. Hi all. Anyone have a lead on where I could find the Paragon OV-10A conversion? I believe they are out of production. Anyone know if there's a chance of a new run? I would like to build the model for my father-in-law's 60 b-day. He was a forward air controller in Vietnam. So, I would like to build his plane. Thanks for any help.
  18. Thanks guys for the help! Most appreciated!
  19. I just started building the Trumpeter F/A-18F. The two questions that I have are pretty easy but I just can find references. What color is the avionics bay below the canopy? The instructions show the door is white, but I'm not sure about the bay color. I know Tamiya F-15C/E models list a blue/green color as the internal color. Last question, is there any locations around the engines that I can cut open (access panels) to show detail of the engine? I don't want to waste time on detailing the engines if they aren't going to be seen. I love what Tamiya did for the 1/32 F-16C which included the re
  20. Thanks for the info. I'm hoping some Lions decals come out. I have plans to either use the Grim Reapers or the Jolly Rogers on the Trumpeter F-14B. So, I'm not too interested in doing the F/A-18F in Jolly Rogers right now.... then again, it is my favorite decal set that's out now. Fortunatley, I have a little time. I'm currently working on the Academy 1/32 F-16I. Again thanks for the info.
  21. My wife picke me up a 1/32 Trumpeter F/A-18F. I'm looking for some other decal options. What decal sets are available for this kit? Any plans new sets? Thanks.
  22. Anyone know when the 1/32 Trumpeter F-14B is expected to be released and available in the US? I've seen some sites showing it is due early Dec 2010 and others stating Feb 2011 time. Thanks. David
  23. If a person was going to scratch build a 1/48 scale Falcon, what would be the best options for material?
  24. I would have to dig up the website. I think it was speculation due to Fine Molds limited run of the 1/72 again that they are working on something else. I would love to have a 29" long Falcon. It would work great in my game room ! I wouldn't want to shell out $400 for the model... but I'm sure I would. Seeing the studio model was awesome... having a similar size model (well 29" is still along way from studio size) would be great!
