  1. I'm glad to see these two finished and with a great write-up. This makes me want to pull my Monogram kit out of the stash.
  2. I just ordered stuff from Royale Resin's website a few months ago and everything showed up in a very reasonable amount of time. Beautiful resin too!
  3. Nice work! I've got this kit and I'm working up the nerve to take on the riveting job.
  4. I read somewhere that the Hasegawa F-8 didn't sell well. That would explain a lot.
  5. There were surely examples of Nimitz doing CARQUALs where F-4's and F-14s shared a deck, if that's what you're looking for. A VF-171 F-4 alongside a CVW-8 or VF-101 F-14 wouldn't be out of place, for example.
  6. I believe this is the site you were looking for with loadout info? I'm doing an OIR F-15E and putting 3 GBU-38s per CFT and SDBs on the centerline. https://web.archive.org/web/20180410025735/http://www.f-15e.info/joomla/en/weapons/loadout-configurations/125-enduring-freedom

  10. My question remains: what does it mean when decals are silk screened? Is there a difference in the way they are applied?
  11. Pardon my ignorance, but what does it mean when decals are silk printed?
  12. Ok, that's a wrap! Some final thoughts on these kits: Classic Airframes The good: This kit has some nice features like resin wheels, seats, and gear bays. It also comes with an ACMI pod and a really nice decal sheet with several neat Adversary schemes from VF-126, VA-127, and VC-8. I also like the single piece fuselage halves (see comments below). The bad: This being a short run kit, it has short run kit issues like massive sprue gates (especially frustrating on small parts) and soft plastic. The fuselage fit was also a little dodgy and things got really sketchy wh
