  1. Hey Kursad, I sent you a few emails with some attachments. Hope these help.
  2. Those are some great shots Mungo. I'm hoping for Sioux City in the two-tone grey.
  3. Thanks Kursad! That would be great if you do an ANG A-7 sheet. I'll send you what I have.
  4. Thanks! Yeah I have the speed hunter sheet and it's great, was just hoping to see Sioux City, but it looks like Caracal will come through with some of these.
  5. Was there ever any decals produced for "Death Dealer" with the Virginia ANG in 1/48? I don't ever recall seeing any, but figured I would check. Also, how about any for the 185th out of Sioux City IA? I always wanted to do one in the two-tone grey, especially like the ones in the old Verlinden Lock On book. Thanks
  6. Thanks AFM! I'll have to go get a set of those. Ron
  7. I want build this plane as well. It is really awesome looking. I just got to see it fly and was hoping decals would be soon forthcoming.
  8. Over in the prop section we were having a discussion about a lack of T-34C decals for non orange and white schemes. Is anyone else interested in these schemes? I'll see what other photos I have, but this is a civilian owned T-34C still in the Dark Blue with the sharkmouth which look very nice.
  9. Maybe we should put this out on Caracal Possible Topics thread and see if we can get them done.
  10. I hope so. There was some nice ones in all black as well, so there are plenty of options to add to a decal sheet. This is the one I just saw up at Oshkosh.
  11. I have never seen any. That is a scheme that I want to do as well. I just got back from Oshkosh and there was a privately owned T-34C up there in that paint job as well. No one was around for me to ask if it was a former hack that is privately owned or not, but it looked like it.
  12. No problem at all Curt and thanks for the complement!
  13. You will enjoy it Curt. Like Steve said over in your thread, a little patients and some add on and these become really nice looking kits (the 2 he is doing look awesome!). The other plus side is there are a lot of nice decal options for them. Ron
  14. As others have said it's the old Esci kit and I really enjoyed building them. It is a really nice kit for it's age. Here is one that I finished a few years back.
  15. Thanks everyone! And yes, I bit this a few years ago, but it helped me get my mojo back at that time and I have been building as much as I have time.
  16. Yeah, I think your right HAJO. If I recall, I think it was Cobra Company that made them. I did it as Razor 1 that was shot down on Takhur Ghar in the Battle of Roberts Ridge.
  17. This is the Kinetic 1/48 MQ-9 Reaper kit. I used the Caracal decals on it. These are quick, fun kits to build and help me get my mojo to build going again. Hope you like it. Ron
  18. This is the Italeri 1/72 MH-47E kit that I finished a few years back. I added the mini-guns from ArmyCast and some photo-etch from Eduard. I don't remember if I added anything else too it. It's had it's share of disasters, but has been repaired a few times. Ron
  19. Thanks Dutch! I'm happy with the results, but if you get in close it's by no means perfect.
  20. Thanks Storm! I really liked this retirement scheme they did. The Viking community had some real nice paint jobs. Did you ever get to photograph many of them?
  21. The S-3 kit from ESCI was pretty straight forward. It went together well, it's lacking in some detail, but pretty easy to overcome. I have another one done that I did before this one and one more waiting to be finish hoping for some decals to be done for an airframe I want to do.
  22. I've been finally getting around to taking photos of some of my completed kits and getting them posted. That being said, I may not exactly remember everything I did or added. I finished this S-3 at least 10 years ago. This is the Esci kit with the Pyn-up decals. I also used the Goffy Models cockpit and wheel well/bomb bay set. I think these are produced by Blackdog models now, but could be wrong. I also used the resin engine intakes that at the time were made from a guy on Ebay. I believe these were picked up by someone, but also can't remember. I also used the Paragon wing folds.
  23. That is what is great about them. You can do multiple airframes and in a lot less time than the 1/72 kit.
  24. Thanks Steve! I got to see this jet up at the London Ontario Airshow. The Georgia folks always showed up and brought all the great patches to sell!
