  1. Stop screwing around and make a Tamiya quality 48th scale F-86E Saber!!! Nobody has made a leading edge slats Saber so you'll be the FIRST!! Just do it!! Bo
  2. Would NOW be a great time for Model Companies to speed up new releases/and or Re Releases??? Man, Nothing different is on the hobby shelves!! C'mon all y'all!! Get crackin' and release something to shake the money outta our collective pockets!! Geesh!! Bo
  3. Well, so much for that!! Need to cancel my Room reservations. San Marcos would have been a great place for the NATS!! Bo
  4. Your case appears to be the vast majority of those that have it. Case Numbers HAVE risen in Texas; but, just yesterday news reported that hospitals are discharging patients faster due to mild or no symptoms and Critical Care facilities patients are down from earlier highs. (Hospitals lost a BOAT Load early on due to halt of test and elective surgeries and may just be trying to recover a bit???) Anyway, I plan to go and will take precautions, like wearing mask indoors and washing my hand frequently!! AND, I won't be French kissing anyone either!! LOL!!! I've knuckle bumped for 15 yrs or longer and haven't even had a cold in that time!! Hands are the easiest way to spread germs!! C U Thar!! Bo
  5. Mine was one color, black. Tail / Fuselage Number and WEBB above Badge. IIRC, around $50. (Gave me enuff for 8 aircraft!!) Bo
  6. Thanks. This is how I remember these birds in 1958 when I was about 14 yrs old. I recall the Anti-Glare Green as being an obvious Green color, not OD. Yes, I was a modeler even then. Training aircraft were well maintained. Bo
  7. From my hometown AFB Webb, this T-Bird crash landed at Webb in May '58. Had photos of crash site. Decals were Custom Made by Bedlam Creations. (Extremely clear decal film.) Comments? Bo
  8. It's in their catalog as 'New', yet it's not being listed or discussed by anyone??? The early version was the standard for Vietnam until the Charlie Model came along. The C Model made the CH-54 Skycrane obsolete. Anyway, I'll like to see an early Chinook. Bo
  9. AKA 'Scamdemic'!! 1 to two weeks we'll know. Either there will be a Boat Load of sick and dying demonstrators, or we've been had by WHO and CDC, or both!! I pick the later!! Bo
  10. The Embassy Suite Hotel is all sold out, soooo, someone is planning to go. I just now Pre-Registered and will find other another place to lay my little punkin' head. Probably won't stay for the full duration of the convention. Just long enuff to drain my pocket book in the Vendor Rooms and get inspired looking at everyone's beautiful builds!! C all y'all there!! Bo
  11. Who all is planning to go?? I haven't been to a Nationals in awhile and this one is pretty close. Just hope there isn't a upswing in CV-19 cases that would cause it to be cancelled. CU Thar??? Bo
  12. No need. I have mask for G Model. Thanks anyway. Bo
  13. Planning to build the 48th Memphis Belle, soon, and started looking for canopy mask. Ha!! None that I can find!! Looked at Eduard, Montex and EZ Mask. Plenty for the G Model; but, none for the Foxtrot Model!! Should be able to use some of the G mask, ....... I hope. Otherwise, back to the 'old fashion' way. Know of any, all y'all?? Bo
  14. Won't be able to see anything. In primer, and mask. I'm building this one 'when I get around to it'!! LOL!! Bo
  15. On my build, the nose cone was undersized compared to the fuselage. During dry fitting, I noticed that step present, so during assembly, used a sanding stick to ensure no plastic bits were left to keep the major two-piece fuselage from fitting snug together!! Nothing is worst than a prominent part with a step!! Did manage to sand and file down the fuselage so that step isn't, hopefully, too visible. About ready to shoot final coat of NMF, so we'll see. Bo
  16. The GWH kit is better; BUT, I'm currently building this kit and wish I had the Academy one. The GWH kit will NOT be a simply build. My 2 cents worth, if that. Bo
  17. Ur NOT the only one that's done the same! Forum design is lacking as one is right below the other. Gotta pay attentions where cursor is. I've missed that mark, too. Bo
  18. Then try here. https://www.flyingleathernecksdecals.com/c/148-decals Bo
  19. I have two plastic files, one for US and one All others. Inside those plastic files, I have manila folders marked with Nation/Service and era on each. Then file decals, in Mfgrs original sleeve, accordingly. BTW, I keep those files inside my climate controlled home. I have some VERY old decal sheets and they like new. Bo
  20. Here: http://www.microscale.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=MD&Product_Code=AC48-0023&Category_Code=AC48 There are other sheets on next page as well. Bo
  21. Now that's one I'm just gonna have to get!! Maybe several of them!! The reports of their P-51H sound rather good and I hope they build on it for the subject!! Now who was it making decals for this subject??? Bo
  22. Yesterday morning I ordered the 48th Sword Re.2005 from Sprue Bros and it was delivery this afternoon to my home in North Central Texas, by .... the US Postal Service!! Darn fast by any standard!! And that Sword kit looks just great, too. Again, great by any standard!! Take a bow, one and all!! Bo
  23. It will be interesting to see what the first three subjects will be. Hope they don’t get ‘too off the wall’ crazy. I’d like to see something that actually went into production rather than 1 Off experimental. I would also like them to get into 48th armor instead of competing with the world in 35th. Bo
  24. Their 2020 catalog has BLANK listing for 3 To Be Determined 48th aircraft kits. Great news!! Can ALWAYS use more contributors to 48th scale aircraft!! I've never bought any of their kits, so I'm not used to seeing the quality they're capable of producing; but, I remain optimistic. Hope they enter the 48th armor line as well. Bo
