  1. Super nice!!! I’m always amazed what you can accomplish in such a tiny scale. Congrats. brian
  2. No. It’s an intentional and direct lie. Cartograf has no dealings with Minibase and is open about getting their copyright violation removed from Minibase kit and material. they have reached out to several companies and forums to have it stopped.
  3. So they lied about using Cartograf in their announcement. That’s not a good start.
  4. Willing to use lacquer? Alclad, MRP, and MrColor Super Metallic are all great. And mask over well.
  5. Excellent work! And even more amazing since it’s tiny 1/72.
  6. I’ve got plenty of the exhaust sprue (exhaust tube, GE petals and front fan) if anyone needs a set. brian
  7. I went back and corrected my info. I was wrong about the late wheel. It was on all models - A/B/D and came out much earlier than I had written. First ones I saw were in 1994, but they were probably in the fleet earlier than that. brian
  8. 167 Pod out of the Tamiya Tomcat. Can’t upload a picture but that’s what I did last year.
  9. For Superhornets, we did a few CVW5 jets. And I think we did VFA-154 from the Reagan. Check out Fightertown Decals 48054, 48069, 48070, 48078, 48081.
  10. So... Decided to go all in on the 1/32 Tamiya F-14A Tomcat. Scoured the internets for reference on how to make the intakes look good and found some stuff. But curious if anyone has tried, or more importantly succeeded at pairing the Zactomodels Intakes for Trumpeter to the Tamiya kit... Decided to use the Aires cockpit with the Quinta Decals set and a bunch of other AM I've been collecting over the years. cheers, brian
  11. As with other replies, these jets were changed daily and twice a day in some cases between the morning and afternoon launch. The tail decals were vinyl stickers and removable. The only way to be 100% correct is to have a picture of a specific jet on a specific hop on a specific day. Otherwise, it’s open to interpretation. And the way the movie is edited, each shot could be from a different day filmed a week and base away… just like the modexes, names and data on the cockpit fuselage - they repainted that stuff between flights. The original plan was to have a specific jet fly a scene, but it ne
  12. These jets don't have any of the factory stencils. These are post cruise jets and have been painted, repainted, CC'd, washed, touched up so much that nothing of them would remain. But add whatever makes you happy. For the DANGER on the intake stripe, what jet was that? Was it a filming jet or a flightline jet? It may have Jet further back. Some squadrons would have DANGER JET INTAKE on the stripe. Some have DANGER separate... -brian
  13. Looks great. If you’re using Fightertown Decals, make sure you’re using the right color gray 35237 decals. The lighter ones 36375 are for the overall 35237 VF-41 NSAWC jet and will be too light. 👍🏻 brian
