    Random USS Midway question...

    Charlie D I served on board Midway from Jan 88 to June 90. We had S-3's coming in from the beach but none stationed on board. We really didn't have room for an S-3 det on board. Plus the size of the S-3 made it hard to keep on board, just as the F-14's being too tall for hanger bay. Even with the vertical tail folded on the S-3's they were a bit too tall. We loved it when the they came aboard, that meant mail and parts most of the time. I will be visiting my beloved ship in July for a reunion of with some of my buddies from VFA-151. It's been 29 years since I seen them and the ship. I can't wait till then.Hope this helps you out!

    Dark Blue Killer - Tamiya 1/32 F4U-1D Corsair

    Looking good 11Bee! I wish Tamiya would put a little more detail in the 1/48 Corsairs. They are outstanding kits but the wing fold area is a little weak in the detail area.

    P-47D Question

    Thanks guys for the input. This project has been shelved for the time being. My buddy's Monte Carlos transmission crapped out on him yesterday. He will be spending all the money he has and then some to repair it and pay for the rental. But when he is ready for me to build it I will keep your input in mind.

    P-47D Question

    I have a buddy that wants me to build him a P-47D Bubble top. My question is what Alclad color should I order for a bare mettle bird? I have seen pics of them being a shinny color and then there are the dull looking mettle. What say you?

    Where are you going modelwise in 2019?

    Ive been watching this thread and reading some of the responses. Finally decided where I want no need to go in 2019. I need to get as many of my previously started builds FINISHED before I start any new builds or buy any more kits. I have already gotten a start on clearing old projects and hope to have it done in a week or so. I might post pics in the completed theread and then I might not.

  8. Dear: Fellow ARC'rs Does anyone have any experience getting replacement parts for Tamiya kits? Are they easy to work with?

    Dark Blue Killer - Tamiya 1/32 F4U-1D Corsair

    11Bee Have you thought about trying 2K automotive clear? I bought a kit at the local paint shop for my model cars and it is great. Have not tried it on an aircraft kit yet but it will be happening soon I hope! Another clear I have tried and that is Mission Models Gloss clear it is also nice.
