  1. Title pretty much sums everything up, I'm looking for some IsraDecal and/or Sky Decal 1/32 F-16A,B, or C decals (Full or partial sheet depending on what's left). Please send me a PM about the details. Thanks Dan
  2. Hello everyone, I'm looking for a Cutting Edge 1/32 A-10A cockpit and an exterior detail set, if anyone has them or knows some that does, or even a place selling them (all the regular sites either don't carry it or its out of stock/production) please let me know via PM. Thanks Dan

  4. I noticed you mentioned you work in aviation journalism and photography. I'm currently in the middle of very large 1/32 Su-27 Flanker diorama, featuring 3 Su-27s (I've completely added all the rivet work of the actual plane in this project (for all 3 Flankers so you can imagine its time consuming to say the least) to help highlight all the weathering they experienced up in the arctic circle at Kilp Yavr, it also will have an Mi-8 hip and several ground vehicles, ground equipment, tar mac, terrain, etc. I was thinking of doing another project that would involve making a scratch conversion for
  5. Title pretty much sums it up, I'm on the hunt for a Wolfpack 1/32 Su-30K Conversion set, specifically the canopy and the off-set right IRST parts. I checked all the regular websites but nobody has it in stock, I tried emailing wolfpack but their email isn't working. Thanks Dan

  7. So I'm working on a project that currently has me redoing a lot of panel lines and rivets. I have a test piece going right now with milliput where I smeared it over some rivet lines and then used mr color lacquer thinner to "thin"/"cut" it with using a vigorous back and forth motion with a q tip. I know milliput is great in that it dries rock had and can be scribed/riveted over once its fully cured, but I'm worried with the current method I used that the milliput won't completely fill in the rivets, maybe it'll need another 1-2 applications after it dries? Does anyone know of a g
  8. I'm currently doing a big 1/32 Su-27 Flanker project featuring 3 of them, so I've been doing lots of research on Russian colors. They often weather heavily because they're kept outside most of the time (at least the Su-27s are, and, by extension, I assume the MiG-29s as well) so the colors will weather, fade, bleach, have touch ups, stains, etc. I like the Akan line as they're matched to actual Russian planes/colors, and usually it'll require weathering with various "mottling" techniques using white either mixed into the actual colors or as a very thin mix to gradually achieve the effect you
  9. Title pretty much sums it up, I'm on the hunt for a Wolfpack Design (Resin) 1/32 F-16I Cockpit set. On a side note, if anyone knows of a 1/32 F-16B/D resin cockpit please let me know also. Its for an Iron Eagle themed project coming up. Please send PM. Thanks Dan
  10. Hello, I'm looking for reference photos of the Israeli Air Force F-16B tail number 998, of the 140th 'Golden Eagles' squadron. I have a few good reference photos that show the upper surface camouflage and a little of the right ride side, but I need some more photos/more detail of the right side of the fuselage and right horizontal stabilator in more detail. I even found some video clips that show some grainy/blurry photos of '998' but was hoping maybe someone had some other reference photos they could share? Thanks Dan
  11. 1. I've always used either light gull gray (FS 26440) or more frequently USN grey-blue (FS 35237) but you need to use the Mr Color or Mr Hobby as those are darker and greyer, for my Su-27 landing gear struts (check references for the specific plane you're modeling) and those are about as close a match as you can get. 2. The intake ducts are a little different, older Su-27s seem to have a yellowish tinted bare metal (I use a mix of Alclad burnt metal with "mists" of other metallic colors until I'm satisfied with a match to the reference photos. The newer model Su-27SM2/3s or Su-35s
  12. Title says it all, does anyone have a Zactoman 1/32 Su-27 Canopy set available? Either on its own or will consider bundled with a kit will work. Please PM me. Dan
  13. Thats really nice looking weathering, you nailed the subtle look to it in parts. The fun is in the weathering, and this must've been a blast! Theres a photo of an A-6E Intruder thats from the first Gulf War that is really weathered and dirty, great looking bird!
  14. I'd use slightly different tints to the colors, they weather and produce quite a bit of variation and it will "keep it interesting" for the eye
  15. Beautiful plane Chuck, very nicely done. Now apologies if this has been asked already, but what are you thinking of doing for your next project? Dan
