  1. I'm looking to either purchase and/or trade for the Zactoman 1/32 Su-27 Flanker canopy set. Please either send a PM or email me at dsahling1@yahoo.com. Thanks Dan
  2. So I'm trying to research a particular Su-27 Flanker subject and think I may have found some pretty good photos of it but I'm not entirely sure its the right plane I'm looking at...Anyways, my question is, are the dielectric panels (they come in two colors, white and green) on the tips of the vertical stabilzers and the leading edge of the right vertical stabilizer interchangeable? Meaning could you switch out green for white? or does the whole stabilizer need to be replaced? Thanks Dan
  3. Title says it all, I'm looking to acquire a Zactoman 1/32 Su-27 canopy set for a double Flanker project coming up soon, please send a PM. Thanks Dan

  5. Hi, does anyone here happen to know an aviation photographer named Andrey Zinchuk I was hoping to contact him to see if he may have some reference photos of a plane I’m going to model. Or if you’re not comfortable sharing his email would you so kind as to forward a message to him on my behalf? Thanks Dan
  6. Ive recently acquired a set of Linden Hill 'Flankers on Patrol: Guardians of the North' Decals in 1/32 scale and I'm interested in taking another crack at my old favorite plane...the Su-27 Flanker 'Blue 38' with the 'Evil Eye' painted on it from the 941st GvIAP based out of Kilp Yavr Airbase. While I've acquired quite a few photos of this weathered beauty (it puts US Navy planes to shame) I can't find any depicting the original camouflage scheme from the top (the Linden Hill instructions aren't entirely accurate) it seems like whenever I find a photo of it the top portion can't be seen! If anyone has access to these photos PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let me know, PM, email, etc. dsahling1@yahoo.com Thanks Dan
  7. I'm looking for any of the Linden Hill 1/32 Su-27 Flankers on Patrol Decal sets (full or partial) from either I, II, or III. Please let me know via PM if you have them. Thanks Dan

    36375/36320 Comparisons?

    I used to drive myself crazy over the right colors, but heres the deal I came to settle on: Paints will weather differently, different batches will have differing levels of tint/contrast, differing levels of light from the sun make colors look lighter or different, the type of film used, editing software for photos, the list goes on and on. The best thing I ultimately settled on was, if you find a good "match" stick with it, theres also an app called imodelkit or something like that which shows you how you how to mix equivalent colors with different brands (i.e. supposed you found a good color with Model Master but don't like their brand, the app will show you how to mix it with Tamiya or Mr. Hobby, etc. I use heavily thinned whites, or light versions of the base color to adjust the "tint" to my reference photos I also use blues, greens, grey, etc depending on the base color to add interest and accuracy to it. I find this "imperfect" method works a lot better and gives better and more realistic finishes after its all done.
  9. So I'm currently working on a 1/32 A-1H Skyraider that was flown by Dieter Dengler. Unfortunately, there isn't a whole lot in the way of reference photos (at least that I've been able to find). To the best of my knowledge he was flying some type of 'armed reconnaissance' mission, does anyone know what type of loadout that would be? Photos of his plane or others that flew the same type of mission would be much appreciated. Thanks Dan

    Fightertown Decals and the Tamiya Tomcat...

    You guys make some great decal sheets but unfortunately they're VERY hard to come by...I say re-release some older sheets in 1/48th and 1/32nd, particularly VF-31and VF-101, and basically other F-14D squadrons. What about a sheet with markings from the F-14s that were involved with actual air-to-air combat. Oh, and PLEASE do a sheet with the original VF-1 and VF-2 Squadrons when the F-14 was first introduced circa 1972.
  12. Hi Dave I tried emailing you a couple times, I sent the $80 via PayPal for the Tamiya 1/32 F-4C/D Phantom but haven’t heard from you. Just wanted to check you got the money and have my address.

    1/48 Tamiya F-14D

    Looks very nice! Anyone know anything about them upscaling this to 1/32 scale? Since I just bought the old kit and a whole bunch of aftermarket items you know that will be the case. 🙂

    New Product Idea

    Where do you think a lot of these resin items come from?????? They start out as parts from sprues!!!!!!!!! Yeah, I'm pretty sure the FBI is going to come after some guy casting a few model airplane parts for other model airplane nerds to finish their projects :-). I'm sure he's just raking in as much money as a cocaine operation. Relax a little.
  15. Title says it all, I'm looking for a pair of 1/32 F-16 Non-bulged main landing gear bay doors, preferably Tamiya but really any manufacturer will do. I'm looking to do a 1/32 F-16B from 'Iron Eagle' in the near future and would really appreciate some help. Send a PM if possible. Thanks Dan
