  1. Nino, I concur with Joe H that the checkered wingtip was painted over the red and yellow striping and the nose art was removed when the aircraft was transferred to another pilot. So go with your original scheme including the red line at the national insignia and yellow line on the nose. Good luck. Cheers Itch
  2. Nino, The scheme is correct. The aircraft in question was with the 318th Fighter Squadron, squadron color was red, of the 325th Fighter Group (The Checkertails) operating in the Med. In the Squadron Signal book on the unit it has a few B/W photos of -D and -B model Mustangs with dark painted wingtips which seem to match the dark painted nose. I assume it to be red. Also the yellow on the wings are the theater markings and again can be seen in photos painted as above, The only thing I could not discern was the red fuselage stripe aft of the national insignia and the yellow stripe after the red nose. I would go with the scheme as shown as there is enough info to verify the scheme. Hope it helps, looking forward to seeing the finished project. Cheers, Itch
  3. Lovely model. Cheers Itch
  4. Sean, Nice work! Especially like the Defiant. Cheers Itch
  5. Sean, Welcome to the forums. Looking forward to your work and presence here. Enjoy the ride. Cheers then Itch
  6. Mario, The only thing I have is a photo of the forward gun modification on "The Last Straw" aircraft. PM me your email and I will send it to you if you would like. It's not much but it's all I got, Cheers, Itch
  7. In the last pic above, looks like Capt Jack Sparrow in the pit. He may even be the DCAG! 😏 Cheers then, Itch
  8. The ARC home page is being displayed from Fri May 19, 2017 ! Have we solved that whole time / space continuum thing and gone back in time, or is it just me?? Cheers Itch
  9. 11bee, That was Project Yahoody, it was basically known as sympathetic illumination. It was done on a Avenger with lights in the leading edges of the wings and engine cowling. A, for want of a better word, light meter was aimed backwards at the tail of the a/c and read the light intensity behind the aircraft and the forward lights were adjusted to match the background light rendering the aircraft somewhat invisible. The main problem was that if you were 15 - 20 degrees off the line of flight you could see the aircraft plainly. A tid bit from my vault of trivial knowledge. Cheers Itch
  10. Bill, Looking really great. Your work is a magnificent tour de force of the modelling arts. The Star Destroyer build puts me in awe also. "If this be madness, then let us all suffer it!" Cheers Itch
  11. Rhino53 Great looking model. Really nice presentation too. Cheers Itch
  12. Thanks guys, much appreciated. Cheers Itch
  13. Working with my 8 yo grandson building a 1/48th A-10. Almost at the point for decals. He wants to do the full color shark mouth version. Found the Supersclale sheet 48-1201 with the markings but I believe it is now OOP. Have looked all over fro it and can't find a set. Would buy partial or whole sheet. Any help will be greatly appreciated. TIA. And yes I did post on the Buy and Sell Forum 2 months ago, no joy so I thought I'd try here. Also don't have, or want, a ebay account. Cheers Itch
  14. Also of note is the elaborate wheel lock / chock assembly on the mains. Don't want it breaking loose during run ups. Cheers Itch
  15. My 8 yo grand nephew saw an A-10 at a recent air show with a shark mouth and FT on the tail and wants to build a model of it. I am assuming it's a 23rd FW A-10 from Moody. Super Scale has a sheet (48-1201 I believe) that has these markings and I am having trouble finding them. Any help would be greatly appreciated. TIA. Cheers Itch
