    1:48 AH-1; where to start?

    I've heard that some guys with long posts will compose it on a word processor, then copy and paste it into your post. Maybe that will help.

    1/48 PBJ-1H information needed

    The release I've got came with PBJ-1H decals. Unfortunately, my sheet is pretty decrepit, so it will need replacing at some time in the future.
  4. Not that mine will ever come close to yours, but it does show that there's hope for the old girl. IIRC, this is their original release:
  5. Nice save, Charlie. That is really sharp looking. Which kit is this?

    A-20 Havoc/Boston Question

    I remember reading that somewhere years ago. I can't recall where the author got his info, or whether he figured it out from looking at photos… IIRC, it's somewhere on the order of a quarter inch, but I'm not 100% about that. Somewhere (there's that word again) in the started A-20B/C I've got, I think I wrote down the measurements. I started it sometime n the late 90s, back when Eduard's PE was just etched brass with no painting or self-adhering.

    Kitty Hawk 1/48 Bell AH-1Z Viper

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

  13. Very cool. Looking forward to seeing what Valom does with this.
