  1. Ha! I graduated high school with him and reconnected a few weeks back.
  2. I'm building a 1/48 super hornet for a former VFA-137 plane captain. I'm looking for the following items if you have a few spares and are willing to sell: 2x GBU-38s 1x GBU-12 1x fuel tank (revell or hasegawa should work) 1x Wolfpack super hornet wing fold set for the revell kit Thanks!
  3. Thanks Neeko, thats a ton of help. I didn't think about looking for baby hornet decal sheet as a starting point. I'll pick up the aeromaster sheet and see what I can do with it. I've also picked up the TwoBobs CAG sheet as it was during his time frame on the boat as well, but I hope it will be a backup option.
  4. I reconnected with an old high school friend who was in the navy from 2006 - 2010. Turns out he was a plane captain in VFA-137. He had his name painted on the jet - very cool! If possible, I'd like to build a model for him using the 1/48 Revell kit. The problem looks like there are only aftermaket CAG decals available. Did anyone make a low vis sheet? thanks for your help!
  5. Well I took a chance and ordered the kit from kitlinx. Total with shipping came to $41. Thanks for the recommendations!
  6. The new Revell kit seems to be sold out in all the usual places. Is anyone aware of an online store that has this in stock at normal retail prices? Or maybe one of you has an extra willing to offload? Thanks Matt
  7. Woohoo! I for one like the changes....It's like a fresh coat of paint!
  8. Up until now, if you needed a replacement part from trumpeter you were pretty much up a creek. Think of the many many threads on ARC and other forums of desperate people needing a trumpeter part. Well, trumpeter did something completely unexpected. They are opening up a replacement parts service! Here is the link from facebook: https://www.facebook...650921608399769
  9. 100% of my kits are online and second-hand. I don't remember the last time actually purchasing a kit from a retailer in any form. Paints/supplies are most often brick and mortar, unless I can't find what I need. then Sprue Bros.
  10. A 1/32 VNAF skyraider sheet would be an instant buy for myself.
  11. I picked an ultrasonic cleaner up from Harbor Freight last year after being on the fence for quite awhile. It was definitely one of those "Why did I wait so long to get this thing?" moments. It really is awesome. I shoot Enamels and Lacquers only and I don't have any problems removing dried up paint using the cleaner. After all, the machine works based on the ultrasonic movement, not which cleaning solvent you use... I use a ratio of 50% water and 50% LA Awesome cleaning solution. Mostly because that's what I have in hand.
  12. I used the thinnest line. I believe it's .003. I plucked some off of ebay. http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-EZ-Line-Charcoal-003-Sample-Packs-6-/181181115787?hash=item2a2f3c6d8b Doh! Thanks for the heads up! I'll have to fix that today.
  13. Long time lurker - but thought I'd share a build I just completed. 1/32 F6F-5 Hellcat. It has it's issues - but to me - it still looks like a hellcat - Montex masks & markings - Barracuda Wheels - Master covered metal gun barrels - Airscale instrument dial decals - Prop & rear landing gear from Hasegawa Hellcat kit -EZ Line antenna wire (amazing stuff!) Modelmaster enamel paints. Tried to give it some character with a lighter colored wash (white and yellow mix). Also post shaded some panels & varied the final finish using both a semi gloss clear and flat clear. Not much in form of chipping as I hear the GSB finished were pretty tough. The weathering may be over done to the purist, but I'm overall pleased with it.
