    Thanks for the compliments!
  2. 1/72 F-16C Block 52+

    Hi Mike C, thanks for the compliment. I mixed Mr. Color flat black and super iron (SM03), then lightly dry brushed the edges of the petals with steel.
  3. Wolfpack AT-38B

    I've been watching for this release, and the T-38C for a while (I think it's been over 2 years now...). Every time the release date gets close, WP slips the date again. I hope they really do release these kits someday... The 435 FTS at Randolph painted their flagship in the retro AT-38B scheme earlier this year. Looks pretty cool!
  4. 1/48 Hasegawa F/A-18E VFA-143 inflight

    Very nice in-flight display! Great finish overall, but I really I dig the finish and details on your external tanks & weapons and your pilot & cockpit details. You're a better man than I am when it comes to photo-etched seatbelts... I usually just resort to masking tape :)
  5. 1/48 Hobby Boss Su-27 Flanker-B

    Wow, that's a great looking model! Your paint work is fantastic... you found the right mix of wear and weathering for a very realistic finish. Todd

    Thanks DanW!
  7. 1/72 F-16C Block 52+

    Hello ARC, Here is my latest finished product... A 1/72 F-16C Block 52+ built from the Academy MCP snap together kit. I added a bunch of aftermarket goodies (pitot boom/AOA probes, radome, ejection seat, pilot figure, CFTs, afterburner nozzle, and weapons/pods/CL tank) and scratched a bunch of antennas according to references. I used Mr. Color paints and Caracal decals to finish the jet as a Polish AF machine, marked for a NATO Tiger Meet. I struggle with photography... and this time was worse than usual, but I hope you like my model anyway! This will be the last post from me for a while... It's time to pack up and move to a new house. Wish me luck :) Todd

    Thanks for the advice. I'll package them up as best I can and hope for the best... Todd
  9. Storing models

    Hello ARC, So it looks like I am going to have to store my model collection, both built and un built, for a couple of years... Does anyone out there have any advice on how to pack them up for the best chance of survival? Thanks! Todd
  10. MiG-29AS - 1/48 G.W.H.

    Wow, your Fulcrum is fantastic! Great paint and weathering for a really great finish.
  11. Icelandic F-15's

    Here is a finished product... Hasegawa C and Revell E kitbash. http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/284803-148-f-15c/
  12. Icelandic F-15's

    Could you use the Revell E model as the base kit? Others have used the Hasegawa C with the Revell E to make a single seater... I'm sure the kit's parts break down is diferent, but it might be worth the effort...
  13. Icelandic F-15's

    Was ASAT ever operational? I thought the program was shut down shortly after the one and only satellite kill.
  14. Trumpeter 1:72 MiG-29

    Fantastic work RKic! Nice weathering and choice of markings... It sure looks like a Fulcrum to me. -Todd
  15. VF-211 F-14 and F-8

    Darren, Those are some good-lookin' models! I've always liked the Crusader in VF-211 livery. You're (They're) going to have an impressive collection when you are finished. -Todd
