  1. I'm all for it. I want to do a USAF short-wing Albatross from the Korean War. I've got the Sova kit for it, but I'd like to have specific decals for it. Also, I'd love to add the OA-10 Rescue bird in red, yellow, and blue-gray. Just what is that blue-gray color anyway?

  2. Here is my 1/72 scale Hasegawa F-111A Aardvark using Caracal's decals. It depicts one of the Varks stationed at Takhli, Thailand, during the spring of 1973 when I was stationed there as an Air Force photographer. The load of 24 500-pound Mk.82s was impressive! I used Mr. Color lacquers and LF Models vinyl camouflage mask set. The bombs and ECM pods came from the Hasegawa weapons sets.

  3. That IS the webstore! Yes, it is eBay, but you can have an eBay webstore! I don't know the technicalities, but Scott's store has been there a long time. I order from them once every month or so, and they always refund me some of the shipping charges on a combined order.

     

    Interesting that the Valom kit markings represent a C-46 that is illustrated in the old Squadron/Signal "in action" book on the Commando, and it is EXACTLY the subject I made my Williams Brothers' kit into using yellow lettering decal sheets:

  4. Well, I've built two of the kits. There is obvious evidence that the masters were made from modified Hasegawa kits, and that's fine. There are some assembly snags, the most memorable for me was the way undersized nose wheel, which I corrected on one of my builds. I used Caracal decals on the colorful trainer, kit decals on the Marines FAC. Enjoy!

    Yes, your article on building the Memphis Belle IV from the AMT/ERTL H-model in the December '02 issue.  I still reference it from time to time!

    Wow! Hard to believe that was 19 years ago. I ended up selling that model maybe 12 years ago and replaced it with the Modelcollect kit - not an improvement I'm afraid.
