  1. Just a guess, but I think this will be the sheet that sells out the fastest in the history of Caracal Models.
  2. It is a statistical impossibility to have too many ADC gray Phantom decal sheets in 1/48 and 1/72 (C, D and E).
  3. Oh, yes please. Such an underrepresented subject. And why Atlantis re-issued the Aurora version instead of the Revell version (I understand Atlantis has both Aurora and Revell molds) is beyond me.
  4. Please do not misunderstand what I am about to write, but I think a Kitty Hawk 1/48 is going to do an F-8 family, including the RF. I have no knowledge of their plans. No one has said a word to me. It just seems to me an underserved subject that Kitty Hawk would gravitate toward ala Cougar family.
  5. There’s a gorgeous C-124 over at Hyperscale.com using decals from a certain artist we know and admire.
  6. Such a good job, look like it is fresh from the paint shop.
  7. Help me Obi-Wan, that is some stone-cold modelling there! My hat is off to you.
  8. The cleanest most organized modeling space I've ever seen. Makes me hang my head in shame. Great work so far!
  9. Thanks, you are very kind. I thought about buying the Fisher nose before the Paradise fire, but figured the LU decals would do.
  10. I left the plastic as is, puttied the offending windscreen shape and then used an old Liveries Unlimited windshield from some 1/144 707/727/737 sheet. I liked the way in turned out. The only reason I used the LU windscreen decals instead of those provided by Caracal on the generic C-135 sheet is the LU windscreen had silver surrounding the “glass.” I needed that for my day-glo/international orange Stratolifter (one of the eighteen delivered.)
  11. Spent years trying to find the HC kit at a reasonable, to me, price. Roden’s kit is good news.
  12. Thanks so much. That helps.
  13. Building the 1/48 S2F-1 with Caracal decals. What color are the wheel wells? Some say interior green, others say gloss sea blue like the airframe. Or both? I don’t think they’d be white like the later versions. Thanks in advance.
  14. That Airfix Harrier is fantastic! Well done.
  15. Over at Modelingmadeness.com you can find a built JGSDF version using the sheet from our favorite decal manufacturer.
  16. The Revell cockpit always looked dreadful, your method of using the Caracal decals is the first 1/144 version that looks great. Well done, my man. Now if we could get some SIOP or NMF decals. Hint, hint. 😄
  17. I'll play. 1/72 Amodel Piaggio P.180 Avanti, Italian Coast Guard 1/144 Roden C-141B Starlifter 1/144 Minicraft C-135A Stratolifter (KC-135A conversion)
  18. What in the world were the Otaki tool makers looking at when they made that humpback behind the cockpit?
  19. Early F-111As and Bs. Yes!!!!!!!! 1/72 Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  20. +1 for a 1/72 Euro B-1B sheet.
  21. Well done, you build much faster than me. 🙂
  22. Excellent weathering. Random, organic, realistic. The exact opposite of the "highlight every panel line" school. Well done. Fujimi Corsairs are fantastic.
  23. Kitty Hawk 1:48 Jaguar family needs some love. Lots of users: RAF, France, Ecuador, Oman, India, and Nigeria. Lots of schemes: RAF pink, French desert, gray/green, all gray, Nigerian jungle. Most sheets now are for the RAF and France, single-seaters. Everybody used at least some of the Wagon Queen Family Truckster T.2/T.4/E versions. I've read the kit decals are sometimes off-center and hard to manage (i.e. once they hit the model they are very tough to move).
