  1. Most if not all of the B-25s that were converted to strafers had paint on some or all of the clear nose panels. I'm wondering what might have been painted on Nasty Nancy on the Zotz sheet. I'm going to wander the 'net and see what I can find but I thought I would ask here first. I found the answer for Nasty Nancy. Clear panels were not painted over.
  2. Art Cross in his Belanger Special Using a resin detail set I got from a guy on the Open Wheel Racing Modeling Forum and decals from Indycals Almost ready for paint
  3. I've been getting them for months. It's an irritating phishing expedition tht I haven't been able to block.
  4. Too high for a good run, it looks more like a jetison and run for your life deal I will admit that it's pretty dramatic and a good presentation of the aircraft.
  5. My father and my father-in-law were both in England with the 8th AF so I would like to participate in this one.
  6. Good choice Dirk. I wish you well with the kit decals as I built one when the kit was new and the decals were some of the worst I've ever wrestled with. I hope you have better luck!
  7. Just a heads up.... I built this kit when it first came out, about 11 years ago. I had it out of the display case recently and found that the rubbery tires and the plastic wheels were reacting with each other. In my dim memory I believe that I had sprayed the wheels with glosscoat for decaling but I don't think I sprayed the actual rims where the tires sit. I would suggest some lacquer or acrylic should be sprayed all over the wheel rims before mounting the tires.
  8. Great choice of subject Dirk and the WIP is very informative too! A good friend in high school got a new GT in '68, (yeah I'm getting to be a geezer I guess). It was Guards blue with the white C-stripes and that thing was a torque monster.
  9. A squadron would sometimes end up with two aircraft with the same letter marking, in which case they would add a bar to the markings to differentiate between the two.
  10. Well that's already begun. It's obvious that they screwed up the PV-1 prop blades. It's gotta be true.... I read it on HS
  11. What? You need a new proctologist?!?
  12. Through 1965 the Ford Gt40s wore the American racing colors of white and blue. In 1966 Ford chose to paint their GT40s with their available factory colors as used on Ford assembly lines. The #2 at LeMans was black with silver stripes. Bruce McLaren painted a silver fern leaf and the letters N. Z. on the right front fender in honor of his home country of New Zealand. Dan Gurney's car at Sebring was Guards blue with white stripes and many people assume that was a LeMans scheme. There was a GT40 at LeMans in Guards blue and white stripes but it was the Andretti/Bianchi car....... Poor pics
  13. I have some historic Indy cars and midgets trying to push themselves onto my bench....so I'm in.
