  1. I do have one, it comes in the kit. There are soooo many parts and pieces that are not used for either the SUFA or my Korean AF, you could almost write a book and sell it on how different many hidden parts there are. Let me look at what I am going to need for my F-4 Kurnass and I'll let you know. Might not need them at all. I did give away the two Pythons already.
  2. I bought one of the D kits (Korean AF) and I have the SUFA boxings as well. Same exact kits with the exception of instructions and decals. I found some goodies on the sprues I/m using to build a USAF reserves D with the Sniper targeting pod that came in the box.
  3. Wow, this is a great database of info! I had no idea all this info was there. USAF 87378 F-16D Block 30H USAF 87375 F-16D Block 30H Naa man, that's half the fun! Discover decals and set out on the hunt for the kit and parts to make it happen! EDIT (again...) Thanks OP, now I'm giving it some real hard thought about buying a 4th SUFA kit to build this one too.
  4. Use the Academy SUFA kit, Comes with every part possible to build just about every 2 seater known. No conversion needed, and it comes with the P&W and the GE intake/exhaust.
  5. I was fortunate enough to get one of the later Navy AD-5W conversions just before the disaster struck.
  6. Paul mentioned something about masters having to be a hair larger due to shrinkage of the resin as it cures. He had a lot of us, including myself volunteering to send him back out kits and parts to make new molds.
  7. Paul mentioned on LSP that he is looking into other options to bring the business back on line but with less work. Like making and remaking masters, but contracting out casting, packing and shipping to others. I'm sure he is still up to his neck with rebuilding or relocating. That in itself is probably a 2 year project at the least. God willing if he does make it back to the market, I won't be hesitating to pull the trigger on products I put off on buying. ...And the wife wonders why I don't wait to buy when I'm ready to build.
  8. Yes, very light mist coats built up over time will do the trick. Even if you have to build up 10+ coats, wet sand smooth and polish or put down a heavier coat once you have a foundation. Back in the day when we were spraying enamels on cars we had to do the same thing if we didn't want to use a silicone additive in the paint.
  9. I've never had an issue. Even used it when I painted my '66 Mustang GT Fastback. Fiberglass hood develops static just looking at it. This stuff works!
  10. Ha! I see there is an “endust” canned air. Not the product I’m referring to. https://www.amazon.com/Endust-Multi-Surface-Dusting-Cleaning-Spray/dp/B01MY115QE/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?adgrpid=57208067518&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIv-2ep8Hi4gIV0rrACh1SJAO8EAAYAiAAEgIgw_D_BwE&hvadid=274717517955&hvdev=m&hvlocphy=9010447&hvnetw=g&hvpos=1t2&hvqmt=e&hvrand=16037412679028225810&hvtargid=aud-676677759524%3Akwd-299229299178&hydadcr=14224_9484941&keywords=endust&qid=1560293259&s=gateway&sr=8-3
  11. I never thought I’d be so excited about such a small kit! I’m mostly a 1/32 builder, but this is a game changer.
  12. Maybe a generic sheet (separate from C-124) with early USAF markings to cover many different aircraft and scales? I have one from another mfgr from years ago. Comes in handy! But no tail bands on mine.
  13. WoW!!! You are the man!! Thanks!!
  14. It would be nice to have a blank yellow aircraft number panel and a couple of 0-9 number sets so we could build individual aircraft numbers? I know, I'm only thinking of myself... Wanting to build this one in the USAF Museum that my Dad spent MANY hours aboard logging in time as a Loadmaster. https://www.nationalmuseum.af.mil/Visit/Museum-Exhibits/Fact-Sheets/Display/Article/196101/douglas-c-124-globemaster-ii/ I'm in for probably 3-4 sets of this one alone!
  15. Here's a really bad image I took of a photo in Nat Geo on an article my Dad was in. Antarctica expedition, 1958 edition.
  16. I remember that episode and also calling BS and screaming at the TV. When I read the article about “The Push” in Vietnam, I was blown away.
  17. I for one discovered it by accident and if it were archived it would be lost. Every now and then I go back and read it as well. What does it hurt having it as a sticky??
  18. LOL! I thought you were talking about the character Bud on the show. He was a bit nerdy on occasion. Wait, what!? A guy dressed up as a JAG officer AND built models?? Now that’s just looney tunes!
  19. Talking about Bud?? he's had several appearances on NCIS since the show ended. In '03, '16 & '18. Just bring back Catherine Bell in her bikini!!
  20. Be prepared to not see it then. For some reason CBS keeps screwing up that slot. Fired up the DVR to watch the last episode and it was some other show that had run over it's time slot. I know during football season it happens all the time and I have to catch it on look back.
  21. 1/32 is my scale of choice. I have a wide variety of WWII and jets. Seems that all I build is my jets. Phantoms and F-16’s seem to be the biggest collection and built kits. Got quite a few science fiction kits, only built a couple so far.
