  1. Does anyone have Fightertown Decals sheet 48077 and wants to part with the Top Gun:Maverick Super Hornet markings? Let me know. I just don't want to buy the whole sheet for just one option. Thanks!
  2. Biggest thing is, I think people are trying to sell it as a collectible, not a model that someone wants to build. I get that they are hard to find, and I'm sure that he may find someone who will pay that much, but there are other deals out there. Just gotta dig. Having said that, I'm holding out hope. I currently have three in my stash, but I kind of want to hang on to them, as I have builds of my own planned.
  3. Just completed a great decal trade with Bob, from Sylvain Lake, AB (Robert 1). He had a set of P-51D decals that I was looking for. Thanks again Bob!
  4. They are hard to find, but do not warrant a $130 price tag. One look in the box should tell people that.
  5. Hello all, Throwing up the hail mary once again! I am on the lookout for four Hobbycraft 1/48 CT-114 Tutor models. I'm in need of them for a couple of commission builds. I'll entertain trades or outright purchases, for a reasonable price. Thanks!
  6. Just wondering if anyone has an old or junked 1/48 Monogram F-80 and can spare the open gun compartment door for the left side of the nose. Mine disappeared and I suck at scratchbuilding. If you have one that you can part with, please let me know. Thanks!
  7. Hi folks....I am in search of sprue "R", from the Hasegawa A-4N Skyhawk....specifically the nose halves. If you have built this kit and did not use sprue "R", I am looking to trade parts or purchase outright. So, if anyone has these parts in the stash and can part with them, please let me know! Thanks.
  8. Just a question for anyone who has used Testors inkjet decal paper and their decal bonder. I had built a model for a friend a couple of years ago, and it came back to me for a repair. There were a couple of custom decals on the bottom, that I had printed. Around the edges of the decal film, the paint had been etched right down to bare plastic. Apologies....I forgot to take photos, but I hope my explanation is kind of clear. Has anyone else run into this with decals that they have printed using the Testors decal paper? Thanks!
  9. Preliminary report just came out and apparently the engine lost thrust after rolling upright, from being inverted. Happened during the team's "shake out", prior to the show. Pilot also reported an "anomaly" during ejection. So now the investigation moves on to why the engine lost power after rolling upright, plus the ejection system. Jets are still in Atlanta right now, but an unconfirmed rumour says the jets are coming home some time this week.
  10. Sad really, that there aren't more decal guys doing Canadian stuff. I had high hopes for Canuck, to fill the void when Leading Edge went on hiatus, but sadly, they fell off the radar. I am happy that Leading Edge is back printing stuff. I'm hoping for some new stuff, so we'll have to wait and see. I'm surprised that Belcher Bits doesn't release more Canadian content though.
  11. Ditto on visiting the local cosmetics counter. The "sanding sticks" you see being sold by online shops, are exactly the same as you'd find at the cosmetics counter....and usually twice the price. You can find all sorts of different grits, as well as 4-in-1 sticks for buffing. They work great on canopies.
