  1. That's why most landing gear legs and bays are painted white.
  2. I remember seeing a photo somewhere that showed the waist compartment on this particular aircraft was natural metal with Zinc Chromate Yellow stringers.
  3. I don't believe it's too dark, took this photo of an F-15D in Iceland in (IIRC) 1993. Even allowing for it being on the underside of the aircraft, it still still looks pretty dark.
  4. I think I used Metalizer Titanium on my F-15C and it looked pretty accurate to me. I think this NMF area IS titanium so it should look close.

    Lindberg Stuka

    Good for a nostalgia build, but other than that...

    It's a product well worth having. One tip for a method I use is to test the decals by using an image you don't plan on using on your model. That way, if it doesn't work, you haven't messed up that unique bit of decal you need for the model you're doing. Then apply the Super Decal Film as directed and again, use an image you don't plan on using as a test…
  7. Not a bad kit at all. When I built mine, I even used the original (1970s) decals and all except for one Hinomaru, they worked very well. It is lacking in detail compared to today's modern kits, but it's a good one for sitting on the shelf, for sure.
  8. Lots of great photos there. I was interested to see some of the NATO compliant stencilling.
  9. This is the link I use: http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/plamo/ I use this site quite a bit, so to make things a little easier, I bookmark links that I use on a regular basis with search terms like "1/48 Airfix" or "1/48 Hasegawa…" This site works incredibly slowly (if at all) on my tablet, but works well on my desk top. Your mileage may vary, though.
  10. Did you have any construction issues? Anything we need to look out for if we decide to build this one?
  11. I agree 100%. I like GA Aircraft, especially in military markings.
  12. I think it was just a natural fiberglass look. But it's been so long that I couldn't swear to it.

    FJ Fury

    It really depends on which version you want. The FJ-1 and FJ-3 (or lack thereof) have been discussed above. You've got a fair selection for the FJ-4/-4B series as well. The old Matchbox kit, the Grand Phoenix and Hobbyboss in 1/48 and I think the Emhar kit is one of your few (only?) mainstream FJ-4 choices in 1/72.
  14. I don't think they're tinted. While not exhaustive, take a look here: http://www.airfighters.com/photosearch.php?cra=2498&lim=5&dis=thumbs Also do a Google Image search for OV-1D and see what you can see. Try to pick active duty (or NG, etc), vice restorations.

    Mike said the site doesn't work well with Android devices (specifically the pulldown menus), so if that's what you're using, you my have issues… His products are top notch. I've got his early model Lynx conversion with decals and it's VERY well done. Those Lancaster nacelles are next on my list.
  16. I think in1/48 Revell and Academy did A models. Not sure about other scales or manufacturers...
  17. If you need to download your PB pics, this is well worth using: https://sharecoding.wordpress.com/photobucket-downloader/ Very quick and easy. The only issue that I see that may be a problem is the limitation in the number of photos you can download at one time (100). This was not a problem for me, I think I had one or two albums with over 100 photos.

    I ordered an early Lynx help conversion a few months ago. BB is a one man operation, so Mike may take some time to get back to you.
  19. I wouldn't think so, but I could be wrong. This may be worth a look: http://mikegrantdecals.com/shop/product/italian-smoke-ring-camouflage/ I keep meaning to order some, I just haven't been able to get to it. When I think about it, I don't have the spare cash, when I've got the spare cash I don't think about it.
  20. I'm working on it, I've got too many albums to get done all at one sitting.
