  1. Excellent build of a model that is not usually seen. Thanks for posting! Have fun modeling! Mike
  2. I agree with Dutch, this is a really great example of realistic weathering on an airline model. The overall build is solid, very impressive for a first airliner build! Have fun modeling! Mike
  3. This is great news Kursad! Hopefully, the special markings (Spirit of America, Raptor 01) for the first flight of the F-22 will be on one of the sheets. I've been wanting to do the first Raptor since its first flight! Have fun modeling Mike
  4. Thanks for the positive feedback everyone! I have 3 or 4 different company's 1/48 NASA F-104 decals in my stash but it was an easy decision to use Kursad's decals for what I wanted as my best representation of a NASA F-104 in this scale. It will be an easy call to use his decals for my 1/72 build! Thanks Kursad for continuing to create decals for NASA's aircraft fleet. I am so looking forward to your dedicated NASA sheet! Have fun modeling Mike
  5. I did receive an issue of SAMI roughly 2 weeks ago. It is the next issue (03 I recall) after the February SAMI but interestingly, there was not a month designated on the cover. My guess is that this was to cover the big gap in issues. I have not received any MA issues since February. Have fun modeling Mike
  6. I finally managed to cross the finish line with my NASA F-104G. This is the 1/48 Hasegawa Starfighter with parts from the Daco F-104 upgrade set along with a Verlinden cockpit and ejection seat and Master pitot tube. The Caracal decals worked out great! Have fun modeling! Mike
  7. That is fantastic news Arnaud! I'm ready to place an order as soon as you are ready to ship. Hopefully, you will also consider doing this in 1/72. I am more than happy to crowdsource or pre-order multiple QF-4 conversion sets in 1/72! Have fun modeling! Mike
  8. Thank you Kursad!!!! Your confirmation is really helpful. I like your suggestion and will check that that the distance between the wing root and intake will fit. I don't have any problem with touching up the stripe. Thanks again for the confirmation. While I am in the early stages of decaling the 104, your decal artwork and the print quality is first rate. I am looking forward to receiving the NASA F-15 decals, you are on a roll! Have fun modeling! Mike
  9. Hi everyone I had posted a similar message earlier in the original NASA F-104G thread but I suspect that it got buried pretty quickly as the subject title did not highlight my question. For all of you who used either the 1/72 or 1/48 NASA F-104G dcal sheet, you should be able to help. I just started to use these decals (1/48th) on a Hasegawa F-104 build and I have a question. Have the decal numbers for the aft blue stripes (12 & 13) been switched on the instruction sheet? I am thinking that the thicker part of the strip should be above the wing but if you follow th
  10. I just started to use these decals (1/48th) on a Hasegawa F-104 build and I have a question for Kursad or anyone who has already used these decals. Have the decal numbers for the aft blue stripes (12 & 13) been switched on the instruction sheet? I am thinking that the thicker part of the strip should be above the wing but if you follow the instructions then this would be below the wing. I plan on reversing the decals from how they are shown on the instruction sheet but I thought it prudent to ask here before I commit and screw up my stripes! Have fun modeling Mike
  11. Fantastic!!! I can't wait to preorder several copies of this sheet. Thanks Kursad! Have fun modeling! Mike
  12. Outstanding news!!!! It looks like we will be able to build at least two (74-0643 and 74-1638) of the last four QF-4 Phantoms that flew on the USAF last official flight! I can't wait for this release and especially the 1/72 version. Yahoo!!!! Have fun modeling Mike
  13. I agree, perhaps even more so than 1/48! Have fun modeling Mike
  14. Outstanding Vectoring nozzles!!!!!! I can't wait to be able to order these beauties. Have fun modeling! Mike
  15. This is outstanding news! I am in for multiple copies in both 1/48 and especially 1/72. Thanks Kursad!! I'll need to search back through my storage boxes as I recall that I photographed NASA's F-15STOL/MTD ACTIVE several times at various Edwards AFB Open Houses. If I find any interesting photos, I'll post them here. I believe any photos I shot were pre-digital so there won't be many photos as I was miserly with my rolls of film at the Edwards shows to prevent me from running out of film and missing something. (Yes, that did happen once!) Have fun modeling! Mike
