    Kitty Hawk 1/48 Bell AH-1Z Viper

    Very well done, Jon. Any "gotchas" to watch for?
  2. Yes, you are of course, correct. The memory ain't what it used to be.
  3. The initial relase of the Airix kit included PhAF decals. The box art even featured that aircraft.

    Monogram 1/48 Bell AH-1S Cobra

    You did a great job on the venerable Monogram kit.
  5. Very cool. Looking forward to seeing what Valom does with this.

    YB-40 details UPDATE

    This may be worth a look: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_YB-40_Flying_Fortress Look at the "Operators" section.

    P-40E and the Flying Tigers Questions

    You need a photo host like Flikr, Imgur or Postimage. Are you doing that? You need to upload your photos to one of those types of sites, then post the appropriate link here.

    S-3 Viking 1/48

    I tried to go VS every time I came up for Sea Duty, but the detailer always told me he didn't have any available slots. I was in VP from 1975-95 as an SS-3, although I did get plenty of acoustic work at the different TSCs where I was stationed… I agree 100% with you, getting rid of the S-3 was a monumentally stupid move. I hope it doesn't come back to bite the USN in the fool.

    Cool Chinook Pic

    I don't think the Chinook ever got the CARC scheme as a fleet. Maybe individuals here and there. Most photos I've seen of US Army Chinooks show them in what looks to me like a faded OD.

    1/48 Hasegawa Hellcat prop...

    If an aftermarket prop will work for you, Obscureco's resin prop is very well done. http://obscureco.com/product_pages/OBS48003/OBS48003.html It's a pretty good price, too ($6.00 USD), considering what resin bits seem to cost these days.

    What's up with Academy and Hasegawa?

    I think a lot of it comes down to this…
  12. I hope you don't mind, but I downloaded and did a little editing on one of your pics. All I did was crop the image and apply a "white correction." That makes it a bit easier to see your beautiful work.

    1/48 A-26B Invader (Memorial build)

    That's really a nice tribute build.

    USMC KC-130T 165000 VMGR-452 Paint Scheme

    I thought that background looked familiar! Lajes was probably one of my favorite VP deployment sites.
