  1. CD32019 - T-28B/D Trojan

    Sorry to bring up an old topic, but any chance we see a sheet for the "C" version?
  2. Great Navy Hornet (and others) Weathering Ref Shot

    If you are referring to the front one, how about using a small amount of yellow food coloring, maybe mixed with tamiya smoke? If you are referring to the iridescent effect on the canopies, I started experimenting with a product from Michael's with somewhat okay results. Maybe someone smarter than me can figure it out :) Iridescent Canopies on ARC
  3. A C-2 full of #2, how fitting. Don't forget it's name is Greyhound, that is a type of dog.... You could always say it was a UPS aircraft such as a 747, remember what can brown do for you...
  4. Can I build a cargo plane full of rubber dog sh*t departing Hong Kong ?
  5. 1/48 F/A-18F VX-23, SD223

    Great Job, love these scheme. Yours looks just like the real thing!
  6. CD72029 - F-35A/B

    With the impending Hasegawa F-35B release, any chance for an updated sheet?
  7. Good decal subject - EA-6B VMAQ-4

    How about VX-23 Prowlers?
  8. From a friend of mine who used to work on F-35 project at PAX. "It's both and depends. If memory serves its generally closer to closed than open because generally at hover the engine is at a higher thrust setting say between 90-97 ETR (engine thrust request). That said in M4 everything is about thrust split (the ratio of thrust generated from the lift fan vs the thrust from the engine) so if the pilot asks the aircraft for a rapid pitch up it is possible the engine will open the nozzle to respond to that request. Another possibility is the engine will not change and the lift Fan will squeeze done on its nozzle to produce more thrust. Or even both. That said, there are rate limits in M4 jetborne which is less than say 60 knots ground speed and they are tight to protect the pilot from doing something stupid that the aircraft can't recover from. "Summary: I would say it is generally closer to closed than open but is actually probably closer to the mid position, The nozzle area is 450 is closed 950 is open. 600 seems to ring a bell on mode 4 hover'"
  9. As my compressor slowly weeps (need advice)

    I post for you all the air there that's leaking While my compressor gently weeps I look at the floor and I see its dripping Still my compressor gently weeps I don't know how nobody told you how to unfold your manual I don't know how someone controlled you I bought and now I should sell you I look at the compressor and smells like it's burning While my compressor gently weeps With every mistake we must surely be learning Still my compressor gently weeps I don't know how you were quiet You were reliant too I don't know how you were supplying An now I'm pricing you I post for you all the compressor there that's weeping While my compressor gently weeps Look at this post you all Still my compressor gently weeps
  10. 2017 MLB World Series

    Not really interest this year, I got mine last year...
  11. F110A decals in 1/48 scale

    May I suggest VX-4 Phantoms that don't have the playboy bunny on the tail?
  12. 1/48 Tamiya P-51D

    IMHO The best scheme ever on a Mustang, great job, that scheme isn't easy!
  13. Minicraft T-34A/B Mentor

    Me too. My brother and I got to go up for our Young Eagles flight. We flew out of Naper Aero. My mom is still trying to find the picture(s) so I can post. In the mean time this one is probably from Oshkosh or some other airshow , some time in the late 80's judging by my attire. I always like this one because of the unusual number.
  14. Minicraft T-34A/B Mentor

    I see a Lima Lima display in my future... Also, maybe Julie Clark's beautiful T-34...
  15. What'd ya see today???

    A few from a Navy base in southern Maryland where technically I am not supposed to be taking pictures... Sorry about the quality, they are taken with my phone.
