  1. After reading a handful of complaints from a few modelers regarding the decals in the Academy AH-1Z, I decided to do a quick test. First, not only is one of the colors called for incorrect (36320), one of the paints they recommend are Vallejo. I would strongly suggest you DON'T use Vallejo's air colors as they are way off. The correct colors for the AH-1Z are 36375 for the bottom and 35237 for the top. In this test, the paints used are Ammo acrylics 36375 and 36320. This was used to check for color contrast as the decals "should" be printed to match 35237 as that is the color used for the markings on the real aircraft. The gloss used was Mr. Hobby Super Clear out of the can. Now, I have used 36375, 36320 and 35237 from Ammo, Hataka (lacquer) and AK real air colors. While all three brands respective colors are slightly different shades, they are close enough for me to conclude that any one of these three paints will provide the same result. I will be doing a test on a chip painted with 35237 to see if the decals 'disappear'.........they should. Hope this helps. Dave

    Best early early Hornet in 1/48th

    Marc, I've been so busy with drawing the placement guides for a new decal sheet, I completely forgot about this. I'll have some time this coming week to get it posted though.

    MH-60S in 1/48th scale?

    Gentlemen, Are there any conversions and/or kits that provide the necessary parts to build the MH-60S in 48th scale? What would be the easiest route to build that air frame?
  4. So, this is happening at the moment........
  5. Yes, I got them from Bell several years ago. They're what I based my Zulu drawings off of as well.

    Check out this nose art on this LN F-15C

    No big deal.......it's been done before (2008) 😄

    Looking for some Zulu References

    The first photo is a personal one taken on an AH-1W. As most Zulus are converted Whiskeys, most of this should be relatively the same. The last four photos were found on line and are the closest I could find. While two are of a Yankee, that area is the same on both helicopters. I'm hoping to get the MCAS New River later this summer or fall to photograph both the Zulu and Yankee in depth.

    Kitty Hawk 1/48 UH-1N Twin Huey

    I had my Italeri November listed for sale and just put it back in the stash. It has the correct main rotors, so I'm just going to use them.

    I didn't even notice that.......and I just heaped a bunch of praise on their Facebook page regarding the kit!

    They are the exact same parts.

    CH-46 blade folding

  14. 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.
  15. They posted an image of the box top on their FB page. No other details that I'm aware of, other than it appears to be a late NTS bird with the turned exhaust. No release date given.
  16. Pre-order link is HOT for FL35001! From the emails and retailer inquiries, this sheet is going to move fast! Expected ETA for release is middle to end of June according to Microscale's time table. Placement guides will be posted throughout the week and are going to the printer on Friday. https://www.flyingleathernecksdecals.com/p/fl35001-marine-skid-kid-zulus--ah-1z--pre-order FL35001 Marine Skid Kid Zulu's - 19 options, at least one from each HMLA and a few attached to MEU's. - Stencils for the LAU-7 missile launchers, LAU-68 and LAU-61 Rocket pods and full AN/ALE-47 Chaff/Flare buckets. - Data stencils for cockpit armor plates NOTE**** Full stencils will be on sheet FL35002 and will include enough for two aircraft. Multiple Marines from across the Skid Kid community assisted with reference photos and information to ensure the markings were correct, to include the fonts used for some markings. Various squadrons S-5 Officers, Maintenance Control, Air Frames, Ordnance and QA Marines made this possible. The sheet measures 8.5 x 11 and retails for $20.00. Will include full color placement guides, as well as holographic self adhesive vinyl pieces for the turret glass (enough pieces to do 4 aircraft).
  17. A couple of weeks after the 001 is released. I completely overlooked the fact that several stencils were applied to the aircraft multiple times! As an example, I had 1 (one) 'NO STEP' marking on the stencil sheet.......there are 18 of them on the air frame!! Once I fix my F up, I'll send it to Microscale.

    Kittyhawk 1/48 AH-1W coming

    That is also a possibility. However, I've been trying to convince Academy into re-tooling theirs!!
  19. Dave Roof

    Kittyhawk 1/48 AH-1W coming

    Very few markings applied to the Whiskey are form fitting, so almost every decal designed for the Italeri kit should fit this one, so long as KH get's the overall shape correct. When laid over the Bell drawings, the Italeri kit is dead on accurate in outline and shape. The lack of detail is what does that kit in. There is another player in the 48th Whiskey game that I am working with. Their initial reaction was to halt development. I'm trying to convince them it would be a bad idea to do so. Knowing what they're capable of, I am confidant a better Whiskey can be done.
  20. Dave Roof

    Kittyhawk 1/48 AH-1W coming

    Nope, I have nothing to do with KH. I offered to help on multiple occasions a few years ago and it wasn't accepted. They have a couple of others on their team that are familiar with the aircraft though.
  21. I kind of like Marine Aviation subjects......just a little bit.

    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    Yeah, but don't forget about the bashers bashing the bashers that are bashing the bashers! Those guys are too much! Oh, and F-14's are still stupid! 😄
  23. Here are the profiles.....
  24. Dave Roof

    so what's most popular models these days?

    It's a new kit that did extremely well upon its release (Academy sold out the entire first run and many retailers sold out within hours of receiving their kits). Hell, I won't get my sheets back from Microscale until the end of June and I've already sold 75% of the print run! While it is doing very well, I still wouldn't put it in the "most popular" category. It's popular among those that build modern military subjects, but not with all modelers across the board.
