  1. Good decal subject - EA-6B VMAQ-4

    I love the low-viz subjects, but I'd suggest a few early schemes as well.
  2. ANG F-86 Sabre/Sabre Dogs

    Feel free to do these decals in 1/72 scale while we're waiting for the 1/48 kit. There's something about ANG markings....
  3. Black Friday Disappointment

    Geoff speaks the truth. I've found more than enough models (and in the case of Squadron, accessories) to take full advantage of the sales at both Squadron and Sprue Brothers. Both are first class companies that have earned my support for years.
  4. Blackbird

    Refer to this thread.
  5. P-3 Orion sheet ideas

    I don’t have an affinity for any particular squadron, but I’d like to see a mix of USN schemes — white over grey, overall grey, low-viz. I’ll be holding out for the 1/144 release.
  6. November releases

    Those quotes made me literally laugh out loud. I wondered how many readers would get the reference. Good times! ""Kailash. When it rises."
  7. Attack Squadron etc. SHUTTING down

    From their web site on October 11. The next stage of Arma Hobby development starts Monday. It’s a big step and a great risk, the biggest in our company history. See what we have planned and do not miss an opportunity! At the end of this week, we close sales of resin models and accessories. You will not be able to purchase Attack Squadron accessories or Arma Hobby resin models from Monday. Since that day, Arma Hobby has become a manufacturer of plastic models, no more resin production. We know that for many of you it will be a big surprise. This is not a hasty decision. Over the last six months, we have been trying to develop plastic and resin lines in parallel. The experience of these struggles shows that we have to choose what to put in the effort. Efforts to design and market two different types of products are missing. We need to choose what company we want to be. We have chosen the harder way. We want to be a manufacturer of plastic models. This year we plan to launch another new type of aircraft in December – this “surprise”, of course, the injection model. Next year – new model every quarter. On Monday, models and resin accessories will disappear from our store. Orders submitted so far, should be dispatched by the end of the month, then close the foundry. Attack Squadron and Arma Hobby resin line and maybe Adalbertus figurines can be sold to other companies who want to continue their business. If this happens – we will inform you on our blog. If you are interested in purchasing, please contact 1@armahobby.pl. Finally, we would like to thank all our customers and supporters. Thanks to your support from a small resin bait manufacturer, we have been able to develop into plastic models. We also thank our business partners: Hataka Hobby, Model Maker, Hauler and Rob Taurus. Together we have managed to create some good models and accessories!
  8. ARC Search Engine

    I just posted an article on my blog that offers a better way to search this forum and other web sites. Link Steven Brown Scale Model Soup
  9. I think the images you see online tell the whole story. Some aircraft are well maintained, leading to landing gear bays that are relatively "clean," but other aircraft are not maintained with the same level of attention, so they'll appear more grimy. As we like to say, "Check your references." Steven Brown Scale Model Soup
  10. Specific kits you sold and bought back later?

    Italeri 1/72 F-100F, after I realized how badly misshaped the Trumpeter kit is. Steven Brown Scale Model Soup
  11. NFL 2017

    Snopes has an analysis about the "Official Playing Rules of the National Football League," and its findings are mixed. The NFL may want to review and revise the rules to more clearly define prohibited behavior as it relates to political activity and expression.
  12. Sprue Brother Coupons

    If you’ve been buying from Sprue Brothers for any length of time, you may not be aware that you’ve been accumulating reward points. Log into their web site and go to My Account to see how many points you have. https://store.spruebrothers.com/MyRewards.asp Steven Brown Scale Model Soup
  13. CD72055 - P2V Neptune

    There was an OP-2E on Wolfpak's Sheet 12 and an AP-2E on Sheet 90. Steven Brown Scale Model Soup
  14. Ridiculous pricing on the bay

    Amen to this! Everybody write this down, internalize it, and bid accordingly. Steven Brown Scale Model Soup
