  1. It looks really good and easy to navigate. 👍 Mike
  2. I've gone back and dug out the original and there's no info on the back. I've always been a bit stumped on this one. The artwork on the nose I haven't seen anywhere else. Looks like a woodpecker maybe. The closest i've seen to it is the 67th FS unit emblem and it's boxing rooster. No idea about the serial except the last three being 865 and that's looking at it with a loupe. One of many mystery photo's I have. Mike

  4. I don't think would of been delivered unpainted. Some had their paint removed in field. Most common would of been war weary hacks but there were others like below. A number of U.S. and Australian Photo recon units used stripped down photo recon ships. 34th PRS below. Off the top of my head the 8th & 9th PRS did along with an Australian unit. Mike
  5. I have an order coming from Russia. Shipped Aug 4th. Arrived Chicago customs Sept 2nd and has not moved since. Will be calling the customs Friday to see what is going on. Mike
  6. Yes that's Paul Woods plane. He has 14 total from what he told me. They are getting ready to take delivery of a Corsair. Mike
  7. I know and agree with him. Just excited I got work on an F-86 of any make. Mike
  8. Would be nice. I was working on the real thing just the other day! Me in the gray shirt. and now he's gone.... Mike
  9. Same here I use Imgur. Mike
  10. That's good news. I was just looking at my Revell kit the other day thinking it would be nice to have those markings. Now I can just get a couple of these. Mike
  11. Yes, I think it came here in the late 90's. Mike
  12. Thanks for all the info. I have all the specs. Just needed the starting size for the star and bar. When we restored it in 2011. I painted but wasn't involved in getting the marking for the plane. The place that did them went out of business so I'm taking care of them since I did all the ones on the local F-105 we have. From 2011. From 2019 Mike
  13. That’s what I was thinking too. I have the diagram on how to make them. I did 30” ones awhile back for the F-105B at my local airport. That thing was big when done. Lol Thanks, Mike
  14. Yep full-size real bird. Vietnam combat vet. Museum is closed until June. If It doesn’t workout here I’ll try other sources. Mike
  15. I have to make new star and bars for an F-4C (not a model one) I help take care of. Everything I find shows the sizing for the pre SEA camo with 30" star. Anyone know what size they went to when they went with SEA camo? Google has not been my friend today. Thanks, Mike
