    Aviation, Pilot, Love grey plastic jets.
  1. I'm working on the Academy kit and it calls for an overall airframe color of FS34081 engine grey. I've not been able to locate the color as of yet. Is there a good match for this color that easily found. Would Helo Drab work?
  2. Started working on the VX-9 CAG jet and need to get some reference material for the build. What books or websites would you recommend for the F/A-18E? It's hard to get a feel for a book on Amazon. Any help would be appreciated. Randy
  3. Thanks for the quick response. Now I just need to find decals for the do-over. I'll shoot a few pics and post them soon. Randy
  4. I have an old Columbia that needed some extra care and while stripping parts of the space realized the entire orbiter needed to be stripped. I don't remember the manufacturer or scale. The spacecraft is approx. 7 inches long with a 4.5 inch wingspan. Could you advised me of the scale with these measurements. Simple math would lead me to believe it's somewhere in the 1/200th scale range. Randy
  5. I've been working on restoring an old space shuttle I've had on the shelf and don't remember the manufacturer or the scale. It's approx. 7" long with a wingspan of 4.5 inches. What scale would this be? I've decided to strip the whole thing down, had been trying to salvage the fuselage details, paint the spacecraft and put on new decals. Randy
  6. You know I really don't like builds like this because now I have to go out and buy the kit and try to build it as nice. OUTSTANDING build, to many Tomcats sitting in build piles and not enough completed on shelves. Great Job! Randy
  7. You expect them to get it right for the money. If I remember right that kit is pre "we run the show" (we being modellers) and they didn't make corrections with that type of information. \ Randy
  8. I got mine a couple weeks ago and have been working on it off and on since then. The kit is soft on detail along the body of the rocket, there is none. The decals lack the "crack" for Libery Bell 7, wrong window for Freedom 7 should be round. Some of the escape tower details are over sized but can be reduced with some careful work. The plus's are the price (my Glenco/Revell Mercury 7/Redstone Booster and extras cost about $125), size for limited space, and not having to build tube halves due to there slip molding technology. After it's done it should be a nice addition. The best part is
  9. looking at my photo references it does look like the right color. The instructions call for FS36622 Camo Gray and after applying it...hum? I might be running into the typical, "just depends on the light in the picture" thing. TIA. Randy
  10. This is an outstanding A-6 thread with alot of inspiration and good reference. Check it out I think you'll be surprized. Randy www.scalemodelworld.netshowthread.php?t=10501
  11. Thanks for all the outstanding information. That probably saved me a couple dozen hours in decals. Randy
  12. For the Eagle experts out there. Are the panels on the F-15C numbered sometimes, few, or never? I'm looking at the Hobby Decal panel numbers sheet and there's about two or three hundred stencils. Need to know if the panel numbers area 70's and early 80's thing mostly with the F-15A model or was it continued to the 90's. Just want to make it as realistic as possible, and I'd rather not put on three hundred decals. Randy
  13. I'm a regular at Sprue Brother's, he's probably gonna start charging me to come to the website. Great service and wide choices of a variety of products. I checked Hannants and didn't have any luck beyond what I have already. Randy
  14. I have the Aires cockpit for the build. I built the F-15E in 1/32 a while back it there were quite a few choices for decals. This one turned out pretty good. I'll be looking for the TwoMikes stuff. Randy
