  1. I suspect it may be a little too late for that. We'll have to deal (or not) with them ourselves. I'm up for one, need to start saving my pocket change to afford it. 🤪

    Spraying greenhouse windows

    Do you paint that on or dip the part in it (ala Future)?

    German C-160D interior colors

    Doing a quick Google Image search leads me to believe that if you use US Dark Gull Gray, you'll be very close. https://www.google.com/search?q=transall+c+160+cockpit&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwj_mv-_2ZrfAhWqilQKHT7LApAQ_AUIDigB&biw=1506&bih=876#imgrc=pmyHAftiZRa-GM: Please let us know if you do find the proper RAL numbers (and that I'm out to lunch on this one).

    Italeri 1/48 AB-212 ASW

    I'm really glad they decided to do the ASW version. Being an ex-ASW crew member, this is right up my alley.
  5. They're planning on 100-200? That means they might get 50.

    CP-107 Argus

    Now that you mention it, I do remember that odd greenish-blue color. It always amazed me the ASW work those guys could do in the 1970s with that old platform with old electronics.

    SMER 1/48 Piper L-4 scale

    This may be worth a look. It seems to show the Smer and Heller kits being from the same 1/50 molds: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/163423-sm-r-0822-piper-l4-cub
  8. Yes indeed, which kit/scale are you referring to?

    Beechcraft T-34 Mentor information wanted

    For USAF and USN aircraft from this time frame, the standard cockpit color was Dark Gull Gray. You may find something useful for the USAF aircraft here: https://goo.gl/KZEGDE

    CP-107 Argus

    All the Argus aircraft I saw in the 70s had the White over Gray finish. The undernose radome was shiny black. I think the gray was similar to ADC Gray, although the Gray used on the Canadian F-101s may be the same color.

    Reprinted decals from FCM

    Nice to see some of your earlier decals making a return.

    1/48 HH-3F

    I'd totally forgotten that trick with CA and Baking Soda. Thank you for reminding me. It would have made doing my Czech Models FR-1 Fireball a lot easier!🤪

    1/48 HH-3F

    Thank you for the information, Maurizio. I'm looking forward to to seeing more of your progress.

    1/48 HH-3F

    Progress! Did you cast those sponsons yourself? I'm really enjoying this thread, you're doing some remarkable work.

    Have a G, but need an F

    These may be worth checking out to make it easier to make sure you've got the differences covered and what parts you need to use/delete to get your F.: F-18F: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10115064 EA-18G: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10129610-18G:
