  1. It looks great! Nice job on the motors- there’s a ton of visual interest and I’m sure it was difficult to do in 1/72 scale! Steve
  2. Please please please be the new Oregon ANG F-15C special scheme 🙏🏻😉
  3. Thanks for the tidbit Gabor! My PFM arrived yesterday and I purchased the Brassin exhaust set for it as well- the detail is superb. Steve
  4. Ok- thanks for clarifying. I guess I’m going to buy the Galaxy Models mask set.
  5. I just received the new boxing of the Hasegawa F-35B with external pylons and it would appear that the RAM panel decals are much darker than the original boxing of the F-35B. I do not have the original boxing so I’m curious if this is indeed true. To my eye, when comparing the RAM decals in my kit to the various reviews of the original boxing, they definitely look darker...and dare I say usable. Am I making this up? Does anyone know if Hasegawa fixed this from the original release? Steve
  6. I’ll play this game too Here’s one of me refueling over Afghanistan in late summer of 2011. Our jets were positively filthy by this point in the deployment!
  7. LOL, I feel the same way about my Corsair!
  8. It’s on sale at Sprue Brothers today and I’m pulling the trigger- I can’t resist a good deal and this review has convinced me. I will finish it in the Czech Red/White/Blue tail flash scheme. Thanks for all the detailed shot Gabor! Regards, Steve
  9. Looking good! I like the preshading with the template- it creates a neat effect for sure. Steve
  10. Sweet job on the armament 11Bee. I was surprised, like you, to see the Tamiya HVARs requiring so much cleanup. It’s still better to have them in plastic though. The Eduard HVARs I bought for my Corsair are all so warped (even after using heat, etc.) as to render about half the package unusable- no to mention the fiddly PE braces. I’m glad you are sticking with it despite the new Tamiya release- I’m sure your F-51 will be much more detailed! Keep up the great work! Steve
  11. They split several years ago now - the two guys behind it founded their own companies: Furball Aero Design and Bullseye Model Aviation.
  12. Tragic. It is interesting to hear so many recollections from folks tonight and how he positively impacted so many around him. There’s a lot to be said for committing yourself wholeheartedly to be the best at something and the legacy it creates. RIP Kobe. Steve
  13. I’m going to guess a 1/32 Bf 109G-6 to capitalize on their research and close the book on that aircraft in that scale. Not sexy, but it will sell!
