  1. Thanks Whitey! That's cool seeing it on a P-3.
  2. Thanks for that link!
  3. I noticed it on the E-2D and that it appears to be something added on the C' with the Hawkeye 2000 update, but couldn't find out what it was. I know one of the 1/72 Hasegawa kits has it in it and was just curious of what it did.
  4. What is this round sensor on the bottom of late E-2C and I believe the E-2D have as well? I'm curious of what it is. https://www.airliners.net/photo/USA-Navy/Grumman-E-2C-Hawkeye-2000-G-123/4278625?qsp=eJwtjDEOwkAMBL%2BCXEMDiCIdfAAKPmDZKxIRuJNtKZyi/J27QLc7u5qZJL0Dn7iXDOrIwSY9bSmz8cupm%2BmJMiXTmgm7/abnqRLUiyeLS6lYOXAWQQ7on19NYW2Cy2p7NPuxRdjt1w6nWnXwPPJqQfAw0rJ8AY9/MLQ%3D
  5. Thanks for the comments everyone! One of the first Skyhawks I ever did was a "Blacksheep" as well. I do love those markings.
  6. Thanks for noticing the little things! I tried to get all the little details on there that you notice when looking at the real thing.
  7. Thanks for the kind words everyone!
  8. Thanks everyone. I appreciate the kind words.
  9. This is 1 of 3 Fujimi A-4 kits that I just wrapped up. I did this one in the Markings of VMA-214 in High Viz using the kit decals. They worked well and I didn't have any issues with them. I was trying to find some other squadrons in High Viz, but didn't find any that I wanted to do. The Fujimi kits are great and still hold up well. I did scratch some items such as redoing the ECM blisters in some spots and creating sway brackets along with some other items. I also added the following: Quickboost Ejection Seat Quickboost Wheels Quickboost Exhaust Attack Ho
  10. This is 1 of 3 Fujimi A-4 kits that I just wrapped up. I did this one in the Markings of H&MS-12 in Lo Viz. I had issues trying to get the grey paint and decals to work the way I wanted them to. You can read about that in this thread: So I used the Furball decals and a mix of other ones that I could find I did have to overspray some of the decals to help them blend in a little better.

  11. This is 1 of 3 Fujimi A-4 kits that I just wrapped up. I was originally going to do the marking as VMA-131, but I couldn't get the grey and the decals to work out the way I wanted. You can read about that in this thread: So I used the Furball decals and a mix of other ones that I could find and masked off and painted the tail code. Luckily this was one of the jets I was thinking about doing. The Fujimi kits are great and still hold up well. I did scratch some items such as redoing the ECM blisters in some spots and creating sway brackets along with some other items. I also
  12. Here is the finished kit. I never got the decals and paint to work out the way I wanted so I had to use the lightest shade of grey for most of the markings. I also had to overspray the darker decals against the 36375 to lighten them down a little bit. Luckily on the real aircraft the Bulldog decal appeared to be against a repainted area that seemed a little more blue, so I was able to do that and have that decal show up. In the end I am happy with the results, but just took more effort than I expected. I'll post more photo's over in the completed build section.
  13. That's great to hear. I have a couple of EA-3's that I would like to do and if you produce these I would be happy to get a couple sets. Ron
  14. Rob I'm glad you are creating this. It was something that bothered me about the kit as well. Will these be something that will be available for purchase? Ron

  16. I do not have a picture of the complete sheet I have already cut it up. I do also have the 1/48 sheet and the colors look the same on both. I see what you were saying about the colors looking a lot lighter on the website. I wonder if that is just the way the image shows on the web or if it is really suppose to be that color.
  17. Thanks for jumping in Lance and for the information. Ok, so I tried some experimenting with the decals and with the paint. So for the decals it appears that there are 3 shades of gray, black and then a greenish hued one for the non-standard camouflaged H&MS-32 planes. For this example I am only focusing on the black/gray ones. So from what I gather from these going from top to bottom. 1. Black 2. Darkest Gray 36231/35327? 3. Medium Gray 36320? 4. Lightest Gray 36375? Does this sound correct? My next experiment
  18. That is what really is confusing with these marking is that there is quite a bit of variation in them and not a lot of reference help. I really wished that decal makers would separate them out a little more and give some more reference to help.
