  1. I Googled SP tail code and found it's assigned to the 52nd Fighter Wing.
  2. Scribing is your best bet. I hated it, too, but with practice I've come to mostly enjoy it. The process can be very...zen. ๐Ÿ˜‘
  3. Kursad, I like the idea of S-3 decals. Early markings are sorely in need.
  4. You said you've been looking for the Mu-2 for years, presumably to build and not collect, so my advice is to build it! Models, even those still in their shrink wrap, rarely go up in value, so their enjoyment is in their building and painting. Steven Brown Scale Model Soup
  5. These markings from the NJ ANG are pretty great.
  6. I just finished the Platz T-33 and was happy with it. The worst part was the wonky design of the vertical stabilizer, which you can see here in Step 3. The next most challenging aspect of the kit was selecting the markings to apply. So many good choices out there! Steven Brown Scale Model Soup
  7. Kursad, when you scale the sheet down to 1/72, please consider printing the tail serial numbers twice, one with the silver or FS16473 background and one without. With so much color variation from one paint manufacturer to the next, I'm always paranoid about colors not matching. I don't mind a bit of masking to get it right. Looking forward to this sheet!
  8. No one ever talks about Craigslist. You can find some inexpensive display cases that are perfect for our needsโ€ฆif you have the room. Here are a few examples. LINK LINK LINK
  9. Found their web site. UpRise Decals
  10. Tom at New Ware is open to suggestions. Theyโ€™ve been churning out masks for more obscure models over the last few years.
  11. At this point it might be better to send our ideas to Mark Bilas at Wolfpak Decals. He's very receptive to suggestions.
  12. Be aware, the ZM (Zoukei-mura) Phantoms will run you at least $75. If youโ€™re not committed to cutting edge detail, the Hasegawa Phantoms are still quite nice and can be found for much less.
  13. Good stuff in this thread. LINKAGE
  14. I have a fetish for WW2 aircraft in post-war markings, so I guess I'm going to buy a 1/48 P-47 now.
  15. You'll find that eBay is the world's largest hobby shop. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Steven Brown Scale Model Soup
  16. Kursad has said that we can generally expect 1/72 following most 1/48 releases, so I'm hopeful. ๐Ÿ™
  17. I wonder. Is a replacement cockpit even necessary? Looking at the cockpit OOB, it looks quite nice. See this build on LSP.
  18. I can't speak for Kursad, but I'm guessing the answer is yes. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  19. Another request for including a VT ANG Phantom.
  20. Turns out it's a supply chain issue. Think commercial market vs. consumer market. LINKAGE
  21. Here are some troubleshooting ideas. LINK
  22. I don't have much toilet paper, but I do have two facecloths and a washing machine. ๐Ÿ˜ Steven Brown Scale Model Soup
  23. I'll be looking forward to this in 1/72nd!
