  1. I always liked the immediate occurrence after the 1989 MiG-23 shootdown where they painted the Su-22 silhouette on the cockpit fuselage by mistake. I believe it was only on for a few hours at most...
  2. The decals are for VF-2 Retro 1997 jet and CAG/line jet from 1995. I’m calling GWH out in public - GWH copied the names from my (FIGHTERTOWN DECALS 48086) 1997/98 profile for their decals. How do I know? I picked that jet because it was crewed by friends of mine at VF-24 who both went to VF-2 after 1996. GWH did the 1995 version but used my 1997/98 names (and a gear door name which I know of no reference for other than the picture I took on the flightline one day and have never published). No way they could magically have come up with the same names when they wouldn’t be at the squadron for at least another year. You can look up the cruisebooks from both cruises online btw. And for the 1995 CAG jet, they copied the 105 OIF names we did from 2003 - wtf?! To make it worse, they used the wrong fonts too... So to GWH - I know you stole and copied my work! How about a little credit. Or at the least next time, ask. I'm really open to and happy to help out.
  3. While that’s true of the real thing, clear blue/green Transparent printed was the closest possible color. Yes, the look is darker but printing the correct lightness of transparency isn’t possible with current technology... still, I thought it was a cool decal to provide and we did it first back on 48082 for the Hasegawa Tomcat sheet. I know Furball made clear vinyl windscreen pieces and those are cool too. Alclad makes an Armored Glass. My personal favorite method is 2 drops clear blue, 1drop clear green and 90% clear. Nice to have options. And we sent them out out to all customers that ordered the sheets, and the distributors. Brian
  4. These are the inserts for Fightertown Decals 48087 TAMIYA F-14 data and weapons set. They original sheet had solid printed windscreens by accident. I added clear cockpit screens, and metallic green lights and placards, accurately sized AIM-9 pieces (printer pulled the small ones from the previous Hasegawa sized sheet) and clear green HUD display. thanks brian
  5. I’ve got a Kinetic boxing - has all A/B/C/D parts. Bkacknbox B cockpit with resin tails. Plus a spare set of tails. And a set of Legend NACES. But I’m in the Us and I know shipping is nuts... brian
  6. Very nice. I got really excited to see you were going to show how to fit the windscreen seamlessly to the fuselage...;) brisb
  7. Am looking for either of the 1/48 Hobby Boss A-6E kits. Don’t care about the box so we can break it up to make shipping smaller and cheaper;) Have plenty of Fightertown Decals current and old to trade - will make a good deal - or happy to buy. Thanks!

  8. Because Tamiya has a kit? AMK is not in the market and the last kit was 10 years ago by hobby boss (I won’t comment on their issues with the kit) Obviously GWH thinks there’s room to bring out a new new. I say the more the merrier. Wasn’t there an HB and Italeri A-10 in recent years? 😉
  9. Kinetic has the all the old vents option as well. But does only have NACES. They weren’t trying to do an early SJU seat version. Almost forgot, it also has the bird slicers forward of the canopy. Neither is perfect but for a D/C with the later options, I prefer Kinetic. But that windscreen fit issue does suck.
  10. The Kinetic D has detail benefit of NACES seats, mesh vents on the fuselage and wishbone vents on the LEX, the correct antennas, and correct nose gear door - none of which Hasegawa has. But no one has boxed the rear cockpit instrument coaming correctly. Kinetic wins in a big way for a D and a Late C. Brian
  11. 007 was an awesome jet. I loved the 3 tone variation that you found the pictures of. Honestly, it’s one of my favorite VFC-13 schemes. But unfortunately the markings were substantially different from the 2-tone version and we couldn’t find space to include the full set needed. Yes, the 3-tone version was a later repaint from the 2-tone. The CO had the 3-tone version done up. Brian
  12. Btw - the belly fits perfect if you remove most of the locating tabs 😬. A little late now, but for the next one. 👍🏻
  13. Nice! Missed you by a day. I was in on the 3rd. And 2nd. 😉 I live in downtown Napa now. Roy is a great guy and they stock some good stuff for a small shop.
  14. There were no standard racks for when CAG9 went to fallon. All the jets that had racks on the Det carried the old BRU-10.
  15. Send an email with where you bought it from please Fightertowndecals@yahoo.com
