  1. That wasn't the question. Which version of the MiG 29 was used. Anybody? Thanks!
  2. Who makes 1 of these in 1/72. Future project. Thanks Paul
  3. Those look pretty good and they may just work. Now to track them down. Thanks for the heads up Dutch!
  4. Thanks Larry. I've done some more looking around and it seems several "Red Cross" decals may have been produced but whether they will suit my project is another question. Will have to start with specific measurements and work from there. Paul
  5. Building a Heller DC6b, 1/72 that was flown by the Red Cross and need 3 "Red Cross" decals that would be suitable. One for each of the underside of the wings and one for under the fuselage. Were any ever produced? If no success then on to plan B and paint them on. Thanks for any help or info! Paul
  6. Wow! Didn't know they flew in all black. Very cool. May have a Spring project(among others) to do. Thanks for posting. Paul
  7. Thanks Gregair I'm looking at building a Hip that flew with the Sierra Leone Air Wing in the early 90's Paul
  8. Was wondering what color the blades are on a MI 17 Hip. Is there a standard or does it go by user or??? Thanks for any help. Paul
  9. Question for the chopper boffins. I'd like to build a MI8-MTV Hind. Is it possible?, is there a specific kit?, a conversion set? I've not done a helicopter and am quite enthusiastic to try. Any help is appreciated. Thanks Paul
  10. Genre: Early WWII pacific campaign(Dec 7/41-June 7/42), small wars/brushfire wars Scale 1/72 - 1/48 aircraft Build any manufacture that producer the subject I want.
  11. I had that kit back in 1967. I was 10 years old. I thought it was the coolest kit ever. I had my sisters husband help me build it because he built car models and painted them even so obviously he had superior talents. It's memory's like this that make me smile!! Paul
  12. Great discussion! Thank you all for the insights and honesty's. Hopefully this matter gets answered sooner than later. Thanks again Paul
  13. I've done some initial research and have not found anything bad said or implied about the Gripen. It's all been very positive and this is from several sources. As for cost I would assume the Gripen is approx 1/2 the cost of an F35. Let not fall into the "senior citizen trap" and make purchases on what the man at the door told us we needed. Big and flash is nice, but is it what we need or want to pay for??? My 2 cents worth. Thanks Paul
  14. I've thought that the F-35 would be the obvious choice for Canada. It new and modern, easily adaptable to our US ally, parts, maintenance, even airbases would be easily applied across borders. But I've had a change of heart. Whats everybody's opinion on the SAAB J39 Gripen E. I think this could be the winner if given a chance. Paul
