  1. Cutting Edge empennage & tail, Red Roos slatted wing, scratch built V Screen. John
  2. True but FS 36076 weathers rapidly, like FS 36118. RAL 7015/FS 36076 may be the starting shade but it seems to weather to the purple hue after time. I have seen FS 36118 weather to a Gull Gray on jets in for PDM. Just have to look at the photo and period in time it is being modeled. John
  3. Looks like the “Eggplant” color has been applied to the F-35!🤩
  4. Picked these up the other day, looks very nice in the box and should add lots of interest to Russian AC vignettes & Dioramas. Surprised there is not a lot of excitement with all Russian AC builders on ARC. John
  5. Farts can fly too, they are lighter than air and float around, sometimes lingering for quite sometime. As an experiment, let one fly in your car with the windows up before you get out. Hours maybe the next morning it will still be flying in a racetrack pattern waiting for clearance until you open the window to let it fly out. 😚
  6. Yes, both were at Soonercon. Many quality models were on display. Our club Metro-OKC & AMPS thanks everyone who came to the show.👍🏻 John
  7. Damn it Gordon, you turned me into a Model hoarder to the nth degree! John
  8. Thank You, Alclad II Lacquers over gray primer. Never had an issue with this process. John
  9. Monogram 1/48 F-80, 43 year old mold and still Champion! Little help from CE Cockpit Set & Aeromaster Decals. John
  10. Not Ghost Gray but SEA scheme on USAFE F-111E & F. If you look at different tail numbers, the shadow green & dark green are almost indistinguishable. I believe these were overhauled in BAe Bristol England. The Cannon & MoHome colors are distinct and were overhauled at Sacramento ALC. John
  11. Never had an issue with Alclad since it came out, decals never silvered and I like to use MM Metallizer Sealer over decals sometimes with some flat lacquer mixed in depending on desired finish. John
  12. I am in for 2, love your decals. Thank you for the Varks! John
  13. This has been stated many times about aftermarket decals, resin, etc. If you see it today and think you want it, you better get it, because it will soon be gone. I have both Afterburner Sheets The Heath & Heyford, both outstanding and thankful Scott produced them, UH is my Alma Mata. Funny thing is after Afterburner stopped the brand Sprue Brothers had these sheets in stock for months, maybe even a year before they sold out. Maybe Caracal will produce a sheet as they have produced excellent SAC FB-111A & F-111A Vietnam era sheets. Many of us are waiting on a decent 1/48 F-111 kit.
  14. Is this old news, first I heard of this. https://youtu.be/SCVi5pbM-tQ John
  15. Although I am not am 1/32 WWI builder, this not good news. They are some of the best molded plastic kits out there. This would be an opportunity for maybe a Czech company to pick up the molds and maybe the in development projects to keep the line going. Zvezda & ICM have made great strides in injection molding too. I have a feeling they will be back sooner than later. John
