  1. FINE work! nice to see you at it again. Regards,
  2. Roden's artist, Valeriy Grigorenko, was killed in front of his home in Irpin on March 04th, 2022. Chuk, you wondered about the uncropped artwork, here it is: Regards,
  3. Thanks to Dave Williams, I now see Kelik has a set which has very well done air vents (finally) and the fabric texture seems nice too: Regards,
  4. Thanks for the reply. I bought the MicroDesign products since I had two Cobras to update. Once I saw Floyd was using them, I did ask his opinion and we concurred on the MicroDesign being better. Of course, I am not tossing out the Quinta Studio items! That money was hard earned! 😄 I will be looking for the package deals. Kelik might be something to look forward to even though I have the leftover Eduard panel for the third (Special hobby) kit which already comes with PE. Regards and thanks again,
  5. David, have you seen my post on the AH-1G Late from ICM? I showed the MicroDesign panel which, to my eye, seems more accurate and almost as nice (Quinta's makes me hungry as it seems to be cake icing). I was unaware of the Metallic Details product, would love to see before buying (but their turned metal barrels are exceptional in quality and accuracy). Lightening holes are missing. Not hard to drill I guess: I've not heard of Aerocraft before.... as long as they're not Scale Aircraft Conversions (SAC as in a sack of
  6. For some reason, the ARC Forums are rather quiet lately and hard to tell that anyone is looking at our posts, so I am letting you know! Regards,
  7. I meant when you get the SH kit... it appears we both are waiting then! 😄 However, you have seen, and used, the Fireball Modelworks one. If Fireball's are better, then I need to send an e-mail on Shapeways to have them printable to 1/32nd scale. Regards,
  8. This will be the subject of one of my Cobras, simply to prove that not only were there camouflaged Cobras (NETT) but at least one with a sharkmouth. There are slight differences in the camouflage lines which make me wonder if there were more than one... https://texashistory.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc1012093/m1/ Regards,
  9. Nicely done, as usual! If you can, please post close-up of the rocket launchers (or at least let me know how they compare to Fireball Modelworks). As for the main rotor dust deflectors, how will I know when you have them ready to sell? Regards,
  10. 😆 Thanks Floyd, After posting all those photos, I forgot to mention the color seen! Are you planning another AH-1G build? I am waiting on the fourth Charlie don't Surf Campaign (on another site) to begin so I can start my snakes. Regards,
  11. Since Gary maintained Wretched Mildred and there are many photos of Cobras under maintenance, opinions are useless when facts abound. I am curious as to why you would use the primer prior to the camouflage? If chipping, as popular as it is, I don't see that on the photos of the Cobras as they seem to be well maintained. In particular, we have many images of Wretched Mary (see the Modelers' Alliance links I posted), some of her under maintenance, and I don't see chipping to the primer, do you? There is chipping to bare metal on the stub wings on many photos though. I
  12. This was covered in the first link, take your time reading it and writing notes. 😉 ICM 1/32 AH-1G (Early Production) - Page 6 - Helicopter Modeling - ARC Discussion Forums (arcforums.com) Regards,
