  1. Yes, I think it came here in the late 90's. Mike
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. I was working on 4 AMT P-40's at the same time. 3 P-40F's and 1 P-40K all desert scheme's. Simple kits and same paint figured I'd kill 4 birds with one stone. I did get kind of bored at times I have to admit. Mike
  7. Nice find! If you haven't seen it critical past is a good place too. https://www.criticalpast.com/ Mike
  8. Been hearing about this the past week or so. Guess there has been some C-17's using T-birds call signs flying around some of the city's that are planned to get flyovers. Guess they are figuring out a route. There is also a picture out there of a Thunderbird's with blue and red smoke trails on Airshow Stuff FB page. So maybe colored smoke this time?? Mike
  9. Yep. The only thing in my area I still see maybe happening is Cleveland, Labor Day Weekend. Fingers crossed. Mike

  11. He is just another of a growing number of ebay Japan sellers listing kits at crazy prices. Look at his other items. I ran into one the other day when he had just listed items and it was just page after page of this guys crazy items. I looked at total number of kits listed by him and it was over 5K. Mike
  12. Hit the brakes, he'll fly right by. LOL Mike
  13. So very sorry for your loss. Mike
  14. Welcome! Enjoy yourself and and don't forget to share some pic's of your work! Mike
  15. They played a behind the scenes trailer for it before the movie 1917 today at the theater I go to. Showed some of the flying scenes being filmed which was cool. Mike
  16. At work we ship Hazmat packages air with UPS but it has to be small quantities and packed/labeled a certain way and with proper paperwork and the people doing it have to go through special training. If I remember right the fine a few years ago started at $7K. It could be more now. I ship pallets of Hazmat air packages every Tuesday and Friday to Alaska, Hawaii, Guam and Saipan. For a hobby shop I don't think it would be worth the hassle and risk to do it. Mike
  17. That's one of the shows I thinking about going to. Mike
  18. Just got back from seeing it. Never originally intended to until I saw everybody's comments here. I agree it's worth seeing and I'm glad I did. It was encouraging was see how many people were there to see it. Mike
  19. My third one arrived today. Must of tangled with a box full of Zero's on the way here. Not happy but they are sending me a replacement. Mike
  20. Sprue Brothers. The next two I order will likely be from Scale Hobbyist. I also have a order from them due monday but it's just for paintbrushes, tape and sanding sticks. Mike
  21. My kits are here! Time to get started! Mike
  22. Oh wow those are great too! I had been thinking about doing Pat II too. Thats why it was at the top of the stack. Decisions, decisions.... Mike
  23. While looking around to see what might be coming out to go with the new Tamiya P-38 I found these listed as a future release. Got to say I'm happy to see these. https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/X48215 https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/X48214 But my stack of P-38 decals is already 4 inches thick! LOL I'm so ready for my 2 kits to get here and get started. Don' think I've been this excited about a kit in a long time. Model desk is clear and ready to go! Mike
  24. A first for me was the KC-46A Pegasus at the Grissom Air Show 9/7/2019. Mike
