  1. Hi, How about a "A-10: the early years" sheet? There are some really nice schemes there. I love the pictures of the first A-10's at Davis Monthan with their celestial camouflage: beautiful pastel colours and black outline badges. And the famous JAWS aircraft. We all know them, but I'm not even aware of an aftermarket sheet for them. With the way that these early A-10's were marked, I figure that a lot of options could be fitted onto a sheet. Cheers, Stefan.
  2. Hi, Roden seems to be thinking of doing a B-36. The availability of new kits should be good for the sales of the Caracal sheet. Maybe both (Roden and Caracal) can make a series of releases out of it. Cheers, Stefan.
  3. Great to hear that you're both doing better, Steve. I haven't heard that our National Convention here in Belgium has been cancelled yet. It's scheduled for early October and I've heard of another modeling event scheduled for the 27th of September being cancelled. Cheers, Stefan.
  4. Hi, Has anyone used this set on their Kitty Hawk Huey? How did it go? Bounce, For your original question, I thought of Blackdog resin. But my search didn't yield any thing really useful for you. I saw some folded blades for V-22 Ospreys, but I don't think that's what you're looking for. Reskit has some other items that you might like. https://www.hannants.co.uk/search/index.php?adv=1&product_category_id=&product_division_id=&manufacturer_id=362862&product_type_id=&code=&scale_id=&keyword_search=Rotor&setPerPage=25&sort=0&search_direction=0&restore_search=&save_search_active=yes&save_search_name=&save_search= I haven't seen main rotor blades, but you can see that there are some tail rotors including the blades in there. Cheers, Stefan.
  5. Totally awesome! So many options that I really hoped to see some day. I have the early years F-15 sheet, hoping to build one. I have the early years Hornet sheet, more as a collector than really hoping to build one. But from this one, I'll build several if live long enough. Thank you, Kursad.
  6. Hi, Nice Phantoms! Sorry to hear that the Academy kit was so uninspiring for you. I have continued work on my 4 F-4J's, although I haven't posted anything. The fuselage is closed on the Hasegawa one now. After an attempt to paint the instruments, I switched to the Furball Decals cockpit set. Cheers, Stefan.
  7. Hi, Soon, all the decals will be in place. Then, I just have to add the antenna's, the astrodome and the props. The D-Day stripes went well enough on the wings. The ones on the rear fuselage were a bit of a disaster, I think they don't take into account that the fuselages gets narrower there. The plan is to paint the invasion stripes on the fuselage of the Airfix C-47 "That's all, Brother" and use decals for the ones on the Wings. Cheers, Stefan.
  8. Hi, I'm just delighted that a really accurate P-38H is coming. Pity it's only a limited edition, I believe that it is such an important subtype that it deserves to be available in the future. Cheers, Stefan;
  9. Thanks, Kurt. This morning, I tried to make the fuselage windows on the Italeri kit with Kristal Klear...and failed. After several attempts, I thought that these windows are too big for that method. I considered building the Airfix one as "Drag 'em oot" and giving the Italeri one another set of D-Day markings. Not a really happy thought. This evening, I tried making the windows on the Nitto kit, just to see if I could still do it on smaller openings. It worked like a charm. I then made another attempt on the 1/72 kit with a really big blob of Kristal Klear and it worked this time. They're still white stuff now, but tomorrow morning they should be neat windows. Getting close to decals now. Cheers, Stefan.
  10. Hi, I just can't imagine a reason why they'd have made the separate bridle hook blanks if they weren't planning to do naval Phantoms. Cheers, Stefan.
  11. Hi, Some touch-ups will be needed, knocked-off antenna's will have to be re-glued,... I'm thinking of adding another Dakota: a 1/48 Monogram AC-47 with the Laotian option from the Caracal sheet. Cheers, Stefan.
  12. Hi, I really didn't like the lighter OD, I do have some variaton in the finish already because I painted the control surfaces Tamiya XF-62 and masked them off. I'll also be using a wash to break the monotomy. There will be pictures before the wash. Cheers, Stefan.
  13. Hi, The windows on the Italeri kit are indeed in those groups as you described, Kurt. I painted the underside of the C-47 with Mr Paint Neutral Grey 43. That looks beautiful, great paint. I then painted the topside with MRP138 Olive Drab ANA 613. The result looked way too pale to me, toylike and as if the aircraft was painted in primer. Luckily, I also have a bottle of MRP-217 "Olive Drab 325 Swedish Army". That looks much better. The new Airfix kit is going together very well. I'll build that one as "That's all, brother". They'll look great together, both from the same squadron. Cheers, Stefan.

    Hi, "Su Su Baby" is really beautiful. It reminded me of "Nip On Nees" Boeing B-29A, 44-62261, Nip On Nees, 344th BS, 98th BW by SDASM Archives, on Flickr "John's other wife" reminds me of "The "Koza Kid". Maybe it's the same art with another title after the locals of Koza near Kadena got upset. Cheers, Stefan.
  15. Thanks, C2j. That seems to be the answer. All my searches prior to asking here led to the Vintage Flying Museum's aircaft. They seem to have chosen a unused squadron code for their aircraft. It was otherwise completely painted as a D-Day aircraft with full invasion stripes. Cheers, Stefan.
