  1. Gentlemen, I recently built a 1/48 Prowler for VMAQ-3's deactivation ceremony and have been asked by VMAQ-2 to build 1/48 scale models of the aircraft flown by the squadron for their deactivation in October. I am in need of the following kits and decals : Squadron/Czech Model 1/48 F3D-2 Hasegawa 1/48 F-8E or Monogram F-8E As these will be donated to the Squadron and subsequently turned over to the Aviation Curator of the National Museum of the Marine Corps, I would like to obtain them at the least possible price. If you can help, please contact me at the following email address: flyingleathernecks@att.net Thank you, Dave

    Another Tamiya F-14A question - VF-103 BuNo 160896

    I know I need wheels, which ones? ๐Ÿ˜„
  3. Gentlemen, I have Afterburner Decals sheet 48-071 VF-103 Sluggers and have decided to build my Tamiya kit with the markings for BuNo 160896 from 1986. Based on the profile in the placement guide, it looks as though the only thing I need to add to the kit is the TCS pod, which I have from a Hasegawa kit. The beaver tail shown does not have the AN/ALR-45 antenna, so I'm good there as well. My question is for the aircrew and wheels. For the 1986 time frame, what would the correct helmet be for the aircrew and what style of wheels would have been used? Thank you for any and all help you can provide Dave

    Fightertown Decals and the Tamiya Tomcat...

    Personally, I don't think that's a good idea. There are several of your sheets that I would like to have, but don't because they're sold out everywhere. What good would a sheet like this do for modelers that don't have your earlier sheets?
  5. Just a heads up, all of my images that were hosted by PB are visible again. I scanned through the in-progress forum here for known threads that had PB images and they are visible again as well.
  6. List has been updated, all previously sold items have been shipped.
  7. Gentlemen, Support from a number of squadrons continues to hit my inbox. A second EA-6B decal sheet is in progress that will cover many Prowlers at the end of their service. I don't do these decals to make money. I don't care if anyone else releases a sheet first. It doesn't matter to me how many sheets I release a year! I do this to preserve Marine aviation history. Flying Leathernecks Decals is more of a passion than it is a business. I'm in this game for the Marines that fly and maintain our aircraft and to provide you with the most accurate decals of Marine Aircraft bar none! Accuracy and historical preservation above profit every single time. Dave, Got it, and weโ€™re all over it. I already reached out to our squadron photographer about this, and I will forward your email on to her. I will have our Airframes shop get you the specifics regarding measurements. Of coincidence, my name was on aircraft 05 back in OIF. Itโ€™s great how our small community still comes full circle even at the end of times. Very Respectfully, Major xxxxx "Rudy" Lxxxxx VMAQ-2 Aircraft Maintenance Officer location Air Base, at that place SIPR: DSN: xxx-xxx-xxxx Cell: xxx-xxx-xxxx "Can Do Easy"
