    1/48 N.A. FJ-3 Fury

    I gotta tell you, I suspect the upcoming Kitty Hawk FJ-3 won't be as well done as your model. Fantastic job.

    CD72076 & CD72083 - 1/72 FJ-3 Fury

    Darn Kursad, I thought I was special. You ruined it for me. 😉 Yep, ordered it alone.

    Got my Fury sheet yesterday. Fantastic.

    Great job. Love the weathering. I think you have a mold seam on both sides of the main barrel. Perhaps a quick hit of 600 grit sandpaper would knock it back. Might have to do a quick repaint of the barrel. Hope you don't mind me pointing it out, you've done a masterful job.

    CD48148 - 1/48 CH-47 Chinook

    Early 1980s RAF HC.1 in dark sea gray/dark green/black undersides. I’d love it.

    1/48 Revell CH-53C to HMH-463 CH-53D

    Oh my goodness. That is superb. Paint job, scratch building, subject matter. This has it all. Tremendous.

    1/48 Kitty Hawk UH-1H double build!

    I should have been more precise. It is scary to me. I've flown in Army Hueys down the Nisqually River at Fort Lewis with the rear doors slid back and while engaged in a serve bank. Looking down at the Nisqually it occurred to me that only my seat belt was holding me from ending up in the river. It was scary to me. Similarly, in the Philippines when I was flying in their Hueys in the middle of Luzon with the rear doors slid back, in a hard bank I again thought only my seat belt was preventing me from heading into the boonies. But flying with the doors slid back certainly provided the only cooling breeze we felt the entire time we were in country. Both times I flew in Hueys it was in the outward facing troop seats toward the back by the main rotor mast. I am sure lots of folks love flying with the doors off. Maybe the doors really do nothing, but somehow, I felt more at ease flying in Chinooks, inside a fuselage, even if the rear ramp was open.
  9. Love to see this in 1/72: CD48136: 1/48 Luftwaffe F-4F Phantom :Norm 81"

    1/48 Kitty Hawk UH-1H double build!

    Weathering on the OD is beyond superb. Love to have seen how you did it. El Salvador Air Force Huey's flew without cockpit doors? Scary.

    Possible new topics?

    How about some love for the 1/72 Sikorsky HH-3/S-61R? I bet some of us, like me, have the old Revell kit in the stash. Think of all the schemes: USAF ADC Gray USAF SEA scheme USAF Euro 1 USCG Italy Probably missing some schemes. Atlantis Models is re-releasing the Aurora 1/72 HH-3 in 2Q19, but I understand the Revell kit is superior.
  12. After all these years, I finally got one. Why are the tail planes molded in clear?

    I can vouch for these decals. http://www.aircraftresourcecenter.com/Gal15/14901-15000/gal14943-C-141-Leonard/00.shtm

    CD144009 - 1/144 KC-135A/E Stratotanker

    I was told that “arrow” helped the pilots know which end of fuselage contained the cockpit after a hard night at the O-club.

    CD144016 - 1/144 KC-10 Extender

    I want to build a white top delivery version as well. 😲 However, I can already foresee lots of "fun" matching the blue that surrounds the crown of the cockpit to the blue cheat-line Caracal decals will certainly provide. Looking at Airliners.net, you can find many photos of in-service KC-10s where the blue on top of the crown has lightened and faded. I will try for that worn effect. But it looks like the USAF kept the blue around the cockpit windows well-matched to the cheat-line. Special request for Caracal: please include cockpit windows in dark gray or black with silver surrounds around the cockpit windows. Almost every photo of USAF or Dutch machines have the windows that way. Please see Dutch photo above. Besides the nose of the Revell KC-10 is wonky and the inclusion of a good set of cockpit window decals will go a long way. Thanks for listening to your devoted customers.
