    If no one on the board has it these guys over in the UK have it. Have ordered from them on several occasions and everything was great. https://www.fantasyprintshop.co.uk/shop/wolfpak-72-055-beeps-and-squeeks/

    No it got stopped. It made it through 3 IP's before it got stopped.

    I have tried it on xfinity (comcast), at&t and verizon and a couple of locations that I don't know who the ISP was but I think one was COX. I checked again today and verizon works now, both on the phone and laptop. But still no dice on AT&T or Xfinity. Over on another board someone said that BM had blacklisted their Verizon ISP a while back due to some security concerns but they got it working again after a lot of work from the owner of BM. Based on that historyI have a sneaking suspicion the same kind of thing happened after the server work last month and some ISP are now blacklisted.

    I also tried to access it with a change in my DNS server and it is a no go. It looks like it is trying to access the website servers and the TLS handshake is getting no response or one it doesn't like. I have a feeling something got wonky when they did the server upgrade a few weeks ago since this problem started happening around the same time.

    It has been a problem for some folks for weeks. It seems that people having the problem are in mostly in the US. I have tried four different browsers (brave, IE, chrome, firefox) on 3 different devices over several ISP's with no dice. I was able to access it once Friday of last week then back to the can't connect to server message. Not sure what the problem is or even if they are aware of it. Most responses from people is that is a user issue. It is not.

    Decals for Canadian CH-124 in 1/72?

    Yeah thanks for that. I'll see about that when it comes out. Like I said over there it would be great to have a sheet with the basic stencils, the variations of the more current national markings and a block of numbers to make custom aircraft numbers.

    Nope hadn't seen that. That is also a different bird than the one Belcher had on his sheet for the Gulf War. What would be great is to have the basic stencils and then a block of numbers provided to mark up custom aircraft numbers. Belcher has done it that way on his sheets. Also the variations of the main markings. This pic shows two variations from Shearwater just before retirement:

    How did you handle the blades? In looking at the new airfix kit it looked like they have the composite blades but I don't see composite blades on the Canadian aircraft. Did you modify them or use blades from another kit? I do like the looks of the new kit though. Might have to buy one just to do a RN build or two now to do the the RCN build too! That would be a start. Wish they had more numbers but I think I could scab together numbers from other sources. But that website. I can't figure out where the decals are listed and if they are available and my translator app doesn't work too well on that site. Have you used their decals before?

    Decals for Canadian CH-124 in 1/72?

    Thanks for the offer, I may hit you up for that if I don't luck out. Is that the new airfix kit or the old one? I am thinking of using an old fujimi kit with the belcher resin.

    Yeah I think that Belcher is about it. I did find that Canmilair had some at one time but they are also OOP. That bird looks really good. What kit is that? Did you use the belcher resin too? I am hoping Kursad can put some Canadian markings on a sheet he is working on. Some more post gulf war markings (which was the newest markings on the belcher sheet) would be great.

    They only have the resin remaining in 1/72. The decal sheet in 72 they had has been sold out for several years and according to them there are no plans to re-release it. Canadian specialty decal suppliers are vanishing fast and not many bright spots on the horizon. ☹️ Except Kursad of course!

    Oh dang I just posted about modern 1/72 markings for the CH-124 over in the rotor head section. There is no one doing those markings that is not some special paint job. It would be great to have a sheet that included just normal Canadian markings for the CH-124.
  15. Is there any source out there that currently produces 1/72 decals for a Canadian CH-124 in a normal paint scheme that is currently used that is not some special paint job? Belcher Bits did a sheet at one time but it is no longer produced and I'll be darned if I can find any other decal provider that has modern markings.
