  1. Seconded. This is really astounding work Harry. Truly inspiring and humbling. I would love to see how you have achieved such an epic result. Will
  2. Thank you very much for these links. I have to say I was not expecting to see a crash relic as a reference here but it is absolutely spot on. Will
  3. Does anyone know of a good photo that shows the area at the rear of the canopy of a single seat Super Sabre? I am building the Monogram kit and getting close to the painting stage. There is a part in the kit that fits extremely randomly at the rear of the canopy (plus an etch piece as well) and I want to see what it should look like. I have cut out the Squadron Vac Form piece and intend to use this and I am keen to detail it accurately. Any help would be much appreciated. Will
  4. Hi I have 2 FJ-4Bs that are nearly ready to paint. One is going to be in the Utility squadron grey, yellow and orange and I am looking for decals for the other one, a Sqn FJ-4B. Does anyone have any decals either left over from a Grand Phoenix kit or one of the sets that Eagle Strike put out that I could buy? Ideally I am looking for the ones with the orange lightning bolts. Your help is very much appreciated. Will
  5. Thanks for all the responses. I have gone for the TD seats - good and Eduard set - rather indifferent. I also got the Master pitot probe. I am on the hunt for decals now! Will
  6. Thanks for all the responses. Anyone have an idea of where I can get a Blackbox cockpit for one? I am chicken in out with intake and exhaust blanks. Will
  7. Hi I have been rescribing the old Mono Voodoo and have been impressed with it as a kit. It certainly isn't small. What can be used to dress it up? I am aware of the Master pitot but was wondering how useful is the Eduard set and the TD seats? Will

  9. Tommy Many thanks for that info. This is truly the golden age of modelling. Will
  10. Hi I rather fancy doing a GSB A3D-1. Can this be done from the Trumpy kit? Were any used operationally or were they all test airframes? Will
  11. Thanks for all your comments - really useful. Will
  12. Hi I am lucky enough to be visiting the USAF museum on 23/24 March. Does anyone have any suggestions on what to see and do when there? Are there any good model shops in the area? Thanks in advance Will
  13. Help I am having a nightmare. I have used Klear as decal solution on my Hasegawa 1/48th VF-161 F-4S decals and it has been a disaster. The decals have bubbles under them, they have silvered in places and when I did some limited masking they have lifted as though they never stuck in the first place. This was not what I was expecting. Does anyone have the VF-161 decals spare from the Hasegawa Midway boxing after using the VF-151 ones? Happy to pay for them. I do not want to go down the Afterburner route as I only need some of the decals (i.e. the NF tailcodes) and do not want issues with mism
  14. Hi I am trying to contact CAM (Custom Aeronautical Miniatures) but i cannot get the contact screen on their site. Does anyone have a telephone number or an email address Will
  15. Hi I am building a VF-161 F-4S flying from Midway in the early 1980's. I have a Verlinden MD-3 deck tractor with a compressor starter set on the back. Should it be painted white or yellow - I have seen pictures of the tractor with both schemes? Thanks for responding Will
