    Writing a book and looking for photo contributions

    Yes, a good friend locally has a high end slide scanner I can use. Send me an email and we'll work out the details. Thank you!
  2. Does anyone have a Hasegawa 72nd scale F-35B they want to part with? I'd like to build one for a friend that just returned from a deployment. If you have one to part with, please let me know via email. flyingleathernecks@att.net Thank you, Dave
  3. Gentlemen, I am writing a book covering the Colors and Markings of Marine Corps Aircraft from 1989 to 2024 (planned release is November 10, 2024) and looking for contributions. If you're wondering why so far out, there are a few reasons. First, this will provide plenty of time to continue to gather as many photos as possible to be considered for the books. Second, 2024 "rounds out" to 35 years from 1989 and lastly, it will hopefully allow the inclusion of more AH-1Z, F-35B/C and possibly CH-53K aircraft. If you have any personal photos you would like to share (please make sure they are your photos) of any Marine Corps aircraft from 1989 onward, please contact me at the following email address : flyingleathernecks@att.net While full walk around images would be nice, they are not necessary. However, the focus is on the markings so any photos showing them clearly would be great. Overall shots of the port and starboard sides would also be ideal. If you're on Facebook, I run a page called Marine Corps Aviation Colors and Markings 1989 to Today where you can also share your images or ask for detailed information on Marine Corps specific schemes and markings. After a meeting with a friend this past weekend, it has been decided to publish the series in two volumes. Volume I will cover all fixed wing squadrons and aircraft, while Volume II will cover all rotor wing squadrons and aircraft. The first two proposed book covers are attached and once the final page layout is determined, a few sample pages will be shown. For any photos you wish to share for possible inclusion in the book, I need the following information : Your full name and how you would like to be credited should your photo(s) be used Where the photo was taken and when (month and year) Any information you might have on the paint scheme (an example would be the aircraft had 'nose art' and you know the story and/or significance behind it). **Please note the photos MUST be your own! **Do NOT send copyrighted photos lifted from other sites where the photographer is unknown or from Google. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you. Dave

    I know, we've talked about it in the past and he was unsure if he would come back or not.

    I am not MAW Decals, that is/was Creighton Henthorn. He had a sheet drawn, but I have no idea what the status of his line is at the moment. I also have them drawn, but they're not a priority at the moment.
  11. Peter, I'm not 100% sure, but a friend of mine may have one or both of those sheets. If he does, I'll ask if he's willing to part with them. I'll let you know either way as soon as I can. Dave

    Best 1/48 SJU-17?

    Best aftermarket is Aires. However, the kit seat is excellent and just needs new belts and harnesses (if you don't want to use the decals).
  13. Gentlemen, A long time friend and fellow Marine I served with back in the early 90's is looking for this kit to gift his son (son is in the Air Force and will be soloing) in April. I in turn want to gift it to him. If you have one to part with, please contact me at the following email address: flyingleathernecks@att.net I can buy or trade a Kinetic 1/48 F/A-18 Blue Angels kit for it. Thanks, Dave
