  1. My crystal ball says more Phantom releases...............
  2. Here is the J sheet. Of course they are thicker than aftermarket but printing is second to none.
  3. You can do one better than Eduard PE set. https://www.facebook.com/groups/quintamodellingstudio/permalink/1455344634822161/
  4. Another reason for this forum to have a big ❤️ button on their posts. Beautiful build and photography. Love the way those flags look as if they are blowing in the wind.
  5. Included along side their late summer releases of short nose Phantoms, you will find these Finemolds weapon sets irresistible.
  6. From the link provided and going over various photos, my guesstimate would be the early style without the extra horizontal splitter was for the J79-GE-8 powered airframes. DISREGARD late built RF-4E's rubbish my theory. 😕
  7. It seems a bit of a lighting illusion. The right sides of the both aircraft you can clearly see the light and dark ghost greys, while the bottoms do appear much lighter notwithstanding the false canopy. I'm suspecting they are flying low over snow covered ground and reflecting a lot of sunlight to give this effect. As a subject for my model project and collecting images of the 124 FW I noticed no other out of ordinary painting of their aircraft. Good observation.
  8. Thank you @Guard Hog and @mrvark for your replies. Some digging has pulled up some references for markings of different versions of the AGM-65.
  9. Researching through images of more recent A-10C's and noticing they will carry inert(proper name?) blue striped AGM-65 Mavericks on both left and right wings. Any particular reason for carrying two? Redundancy? Thank you.
  10. Looks like if your a stickler for the details, you will have to use a mirror like metal finish on the front tips of your inboard wing pylons, wing tanks and engine intake leading edges.
  11. A mystery. Borgfeldt use to have sole rights in distributing Tamiya products to retailers in Canada but not sure what there status is now. The Borgfeldt site looks quite primitive now.
  12. Thank you @ya-gabor for the detective work. Modellers are an obsessive crowd. My Googling did not turn anything else up. But my career in aviation has taught me to to believe in anything, especially when it comes to "by the book" applied paint.
  13. Definitely a head scratcher. So they've done this wing walkway for all three aircraft on the decal options in this release? I could see for one, as anomalies of restored birds or even possibly of a screw up on one aircraft but not on all three. And the horizontal tail triangular stab patches are looking like a decal? That would be a shortcut I didn't expect from them. Notwithstanding these revelations, I'm not changing my order.
