  1. Thank you for the information, Maurizio. I'm looking forward to to seeing more of your progress.
  2. Progress! Did you cast those sponsons yourself? I'm really enjoying this thread, you're doing some remarkable work.
  3. 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:
  4. Thanks, Dutch, I forgot to account for the Beechcraft model differences. I'd be happy with a C90 version, too. đŸ™‚
  5. Why couldn't they have released this before I did the Czech Models 1/48 kit?
  6. Standard cockpit finish for US aircraft in that time period was Dark Gull Gray, I can't remember the FS number right now (36231?), so I'd go with that unless you get some evidence to the contrary.
  7. Wow, that looks really nice, John. Way better than my poor old Fujimi kit.
  8. A King Air has been on my wants list for a couple of decades, too. Ever since flying on a C-12 from NAS Brunswick to NAS Norfolk, I've been wanting one.
  9. All I can add is "ditto."
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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:
  13. Nice save, Charlie. That is really sharp looking. Which kit is this?
  14. 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.
  15. It may be worth looking here: http://barracudacals.com/products.php?cat=14 Not guaranteeing what you're looking for is there, but it may be worth a look.
  16. Looks like this eBay link works now: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Minicraft-Models-11671-1-48-T-34A-Mentor-Model-Kit-NEW-TOOL-/273314596174?oid=273312754588
  17. Very well done, Jon. Any "gotchas" to watch for?
  18. Yes, you are of course, correct. The memory ain't what it used to be.
  19. The initial relase of the Airix kit included PhAF decals. The box art even featured that aircraft.
  20. You did a great job on the venerable Monogram kit.
  21. Very cool. Looking forward to seeing what Valom does with this.
  22. This may be worth a look: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_YB-40_Flying_Fortress Look at the "Operators" section.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
