  1. Hi to all, long time no post I’ve been doing some googling about the 509th B-29s (collecting some references to build all 15 planes) as we all know, Bockscar did not have its nose art until after the mission, where it wore the false triangle N of the 444th, red band on the fuselage, and no. 77 markings on the aft, contrary to what Academy and Monogram depicted in their kit decals... or so I thought... recently, I came across this site that contains dated photos of both A-bombers, but what caught my attention is this photo: it shows Bockscar after the mission wearing its (now signature) nose art and no. 77 on the nose, but STILL wearing the 444th’s false triangle N on the tail... and it can be assumed that the red band is still there (albeit hidden in this angle)... assuming that this photo is authentic, I guess it can be said that Bockscar being depicted on kit decals and online/print art aren’t so fictional after all... and that it’s ok to use those decals and you’ll still come up with a historically and reasonably accurate model of Bockscar... just don’t put Fat Man in the bomb bay
  2. looks like the Super Bug's finally gonna take the center stage... unless the Navy allows the F-35C to be featured...
  3. that's actually the Philippine Navy aircraft, the PAF version has a different and simpler scheme
  4. indeed... when my dad was first commissioned as a pilot for the Philippine Air Force, the Islander was his first active duty airplane... he logged almost 1,500 hours on the airplane before he was transferred to the 15th Strike Wing, flying first the AT-28D and eventually becoming one of the first locally-trained pilots for the OV-10A Bronco when the ex-USAF planes first arrived in 1992... dad's Islander in the PAF was also the very first airplane I ever ridden on...
  5. I'm interested in those markings as well... ;) would love to receive a copy if it's alright ;)
  6. Paul Fernandez (riversphynxz) of Blue Diamond Decals, focuses on Philippine Air Force subjects. He already has the FA-50 line (markings available for all 12 jets in the PAF fleet by order) in 1/48 and 1/72 scales, you can contact him here in the forums for orders. you can also check out his facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Philippine-Military-Scale-Models-1548733742048308/
  7. uh oh... does this mean Revell-Monogram kits may soon become rare?

    plus one here, I have two each of Italeri's and AMT's U-Boats and four of the H model gunships that are in need of decals, if your plans to publish them would push through, it will be highly appreciated
