    Best replacement for an F-15 is... an F-15

    Between Saudi and Qatari buys, the F-15 has a ton of life left. The Saudi order is for 84 new builds and the Qatari order is for 36. They are pumping jets out at St Louis right now. Long live the Eagle! Steve

    Fujimi 1/24 scale Martini Porsche 917 K

    Joel, Thanks for taking the time to explain how you obtained your glossy finish- the result is spectacular! I’m looking forward to seeing the car all together soon! Steve

    1/32 Tamiya Spitfire Mk IXc, "Kicked Up A Notch"

    Welcome back Chuck! We missed you here at ARC, but I’m glad you are back- I’ve followed all your builds since the F-4, both here and over at LSP. I’ll try to add more “atta boys” this time around, since I have mostly just admired your work and didn’t know what to say other than “WOW!” You sir, are an artist! Steve

    1/48 F-18E Super Hornet

    Superb build Darren. I like the orange and black on a Super Hornet! Steve

    CD48111 - FB-111A

    I just got my FB-111 decals and they are thoroughly fantastic! Thanks again for producing these Kursad. I am in the midst of a move so I’m not sure I will get to my FB-111 build until next year, but I can hardly wait!

    Great Wall Hobby F-15E Strike Eagle 1:48

    I’m happy they are doing a dedicated E boxing. I hope you will be able to build both -220 and -229 birds from the box (different CFT air scoops). I also hope they include all the SBDs and racks as shown in the art above! At any rate- good news! Steve
  11. Very interesting and a beautiful build! Well done 👍🏻 Steve

    1:48 Lockheed Martin F35 -B 617Sqn RAF

    Awesome! I love seeing the F-35 with bombs under the wings! What pylon did you use for the 2x GBU-38s? It looks like an interesting arrangement. Steve

    CD48145 - 1/48 F-86 in Korea - Part 1

    Got it thanks! I did a quick search on the net and EBay- those are unavailable anywhere, so I would still advocate for the inclusion of Blesse’s jet on this sheet 😉. He’s one of the most famous jet aces of all time, and besides, I’m biased because I flew in a memorial flyby for him at Seymour Johnson AFB in 2014.

    CD48145 - 1/48 F-86 in Korea - Part 1

    Who made the decals? I haven’t seen them

    CD48145 - 1/48 F-86 in Korea - Part 1

    Boots Blesse’s aircraft needs to be done. 10 confirmed kills and the leading jet ace for awhile. He flew with the 334th FIS and to my knowledge, there are not decals available for his aircraft in 1/48. Steve
