    Dana Bell contact email?

    Is Dana Bell around here or does someone have a contact email address for him? He might remember me from being with Detail & Scale in Omaha and I needed some research help.

    Airfix's BIG news from Telford...

    This thing is impressive. The more I see, the more I want one! Seriously- I haven't been this excited over a model kit in a long, long time!

    Airfix's BIG news from Telford...

    Thank you for the link! I am a major Hellcat fan so this is nothing short of a dream come true. I do feel kind of bad for all of the R.A.F fans that were hoping for something like a 1/32 Hurricane. This is a huge surprise!

    A 1/24 scale F6F Hellcat... No, I didn't miss-type that scale 😮 (and I will be getting a couple)

    1/32 Curtiss Electric P-47 prop- does someone have a spare?

    PM sent! Can always count on good help on here!
  7. I was wondering if someone happened to have a 1/32 narrow chord Curtiss Electric prop from a P-47 kit. I don't know if the Hasegawa model came with multiple options like Tamiya's 1/48 kit did. I'm doing a Revell 1/32 Wildcat and the prop is really pretty bad. I can do a new one if I can get something like a Thunderbolt prop for the blades. I can't find any sort of an AM replacement, so if someone can help me out I'd appreciate it. Thanks! Chris

    F-8H VF-201 Decals

    What? Seriously? I never heard anything about it. I didn't know him personally, but I did correspond with him a few times. Tom added a lot to the NAVAIR topics. That brings my week down.

    F-100 chase plane help needed

    Admittedly a brief hijack- for a great movie showcasing Edwards AFB and the AFFTC during the 1950s, watch the movie "Toward the Unknown " with Bill Holden. I always enjoy watching that one.
  10. Since I mainly do Navy stuff I'm kind of out of my field on this one. Are there any photos of the P-47 'Tarheel Hal' with invasion stripes? The Fine Scale Modeler book, "American Fighters Over Europe " implies that it had them and that they were eventually removed. The Lone Star Flight Museum's rendition has them, but flying restorations are notorious for being inaccurate. I did a Google search but it mainly came up with models and the LSFM airplane. Anybody have something?

    F-100 chase plane help needed

    Or, if you would rather not go the ebay/bidding route go to the fineartofdecals.com web site. It's all things Cutting Edge, Pyn Up, and Yellowhammer Decals. They still have them for $24.00 bucks. There's a lot of cool stuff on there that I like but upwards of $25.00 for a decal sheet is a bit too rich for me. If there is a photo of a orange and white F-100 I would be interested in seeing it. The only other opinion that might help is I think the Super Sabre pilots have a web site completely dedicated to the Hun. That would be the place to ask.
  12. Is the Hasegawa 1/32 F6F with the Verlinden detail set still available? I have to build at least most of the Hellcat models for the upcoming revised Detail & Scale book and I want to do the Hasegawa model with that detail set. That would fit the bill nicely. Thanks!

    Lost my Tomcat

    I can feel your pain. I like many Grumman built "cats" but my four-legged buddy is my favorite! He's also a great modeling companion.

    I don't think there ever was an orange and white F-100 chase aircraft. The ones that I have seen associated with Edwards AFB and the X-15 program were natural metal and orange. There was a red and white F-100 that had to do with the depot maintenance facility at McClellan- Sacramento Air Material Area (SMAMA). Cutting Edge used to do decals for it

    Top Gun 2 Production begins

    Wow, ok then. I learned something new. Top Gun IS still around. I still think that a Top Gun movie without the Tomcat still isn't as cool.😎
