  1. Amazing build. When I was 13 living on Andersen AFB, Guam in 1970 a Vulcan was visiting the base. When it took off it did a few high speed passes and a couple of steep turns at low level. (Nothing our B-52Ds could try.) My dad got it all on 8mm and years ago we transferred it to DVD. It was painted just like your phenomenal effort. Gotta dig out the DVD.
  2. That’s one clean build. Well done!
  3. Man, that is amazing. I could never pull that off with a vacuform kit. Well done. Wish someone would release a 1/72 version. The only path I see is for Airfix to do one in 1/72 since it is in RAF service. Maybe BPK.
  4. I came across this nice Pennsylvania ANG Hawk 1/48 T-33 https://modelingmadness.com/scott/korean/us/usaf/misc/ht33.htm
  5. Oh man, that is a gorgeous post war bird. Anyone make those crazy intakes in resin (the ones on top of the cowling)?
  6. Oh, how I could have used this thread when I was building my Revell/Italeri CH-53E. Still ashamed how "tall" the landing gear look on this one.
  7. I already built my Roden Mohawk, but I’d snap up a 1/72 version in 0.0000678 milliseconds.
  8. Always wondered why some USAF Skyraiders flew with no national insignia on the fuselage?
  9. Oh, that C-5A is gorgeous. Always wanted to do that!
  10. 1/144 - Lockheed C-141A Starlifter by A&A Models is coming. Time to break out the NMF and the Caracal decals.
  11. I will have my airbrush loaded with engine gray FS16081 at a moment's notice for this sheet, both 1/48 and 1/72.
  12. Thanks Dutch for your kind comments about my C-135A. Yep, I can see my fuel pipe is too thick now. For the life of me, I could not find any C-135A pictures of fuel pipe clearly. I could tell the wings had been removed, but that was about it. 😃
  13. The 1/48 and 1/72 HB Twosairs both suffer from badly misshapen canopies and fuel tanks. The fuel tanks can be replaced with the appropriate Hasegawa or Fujimi tanks. The canopies will take skill I don’t have. Nevertheless, I have a 1/72 HB version and will be pleased if Caracal sees fit to release sheets in that scale.
  14. On my 1/144 C-135A Stratolifter, I converted the fuel dump pipe from the refueling boom. Not certain if it is 100% correct, but from photos, early C-135As did not have many changes. Also had to shave off the formation light appendages from the bottom of the forward fuselage. Couldn't have done it without the Caracal decals, though.
  15. Same here. Far more than any other brand. It’s rare I don’t buy at least one sheet out of every new batch.
