  1. I keep on waiting for that. I wonder if it is going to be like waiting for Tamiya's F-16D. For whatever reason, the F-35 sadly doesn't seem to be like a popular subject.
  2. Jake, So what would you suggest for the vertical stabs? You don't specify that in the instruction sheet. Dark sea blue?
  3. Anyone planning on making them? Not the most colorful, but it is the first line squadron to fly the F-35C. https://www.navy.mil/management/photodb/webphoto/web_181116-N-FC670-010.JPG
  4. I like the idea of a LHA/LHD as a forward deployed light carrier. But 10 on the flight deck seems awfully crowded. I've read where 20 is the max, but I would think that you will need some helicopters for plane guard duty. That likely brings down the number from 20. How much can they off load to other ships. The San Antonio Class can take 2 MV-22s. But I am wondering if some scenarios an mobile off shore base can be assigned to the ARG.
  5. Hi Gary, I was looking forward to these. I can testify to the difficulty of building Tamiya's F-16 intakes. One challenge is that the intake lip is a smidge too. Not to mention all the filling, sanding, and painting. It will be well worth the money, especially with Tamiya F-16s being at a nice price point. The fit looks good. But it was hard to tell from the SprueBrother's pics the level of detail. Do you have additional pics. I'd like to pick up a couple. Thanks, Blain
  6. Hey Don, Would you be willing to part ways with the 1/32 VFA-103 decals?
  7. Pics? I hope it will be worth the wait.
  8. Here you go. First pic of an F-35C in a line squadron - VFA-147. Maybe the CAG jet has some color but I kind of doubt it. Decals????
  9. Really? Their site says for KH. I hope not. http://www.blackdog.cz/a48.html Looking at the lower fuselage again. I have a KH C. Not a C. But likely an A.
  10. I am looking to build a Kittyhawk F-35C. Has anyone tried the Black Dog weapons. bay? It doesn't look bad. I am assuming it would fit the C model.
  11. Hey Shawn,

    I just noticed you posted the pic of an F/A-18F with Jake's VFA-213 decals.  It's very nice.  What blue did you use for the vertical stabs?  The blue in the lion's head seems dark on the sheet.  I was concerned that there was not going to be enough contrast with Insignia Blue.

      I used the directions but toned it down a wee bit with a slightly lighter blue mixed in.

  12. I am using Gunze's Mr. Setter. Is it just suppose to help move around the decal and set or are there some adhesive properties contained in it? Also sometimes Mr. Setter leaves a white residue. Is it dissolving the future coat or does the white residue come from Mr. Setter? Thanks!
