  1. No problem and thanks for the answer. Looks like such a great scheme I'll get the sheet anyway 🙂 Cheers Jon
  2. This poster has not been on ARC since 2017, so I don't think I'm going to get any joy, but did any of the photos he had get posted or published anywhere? I would like to buy this Caracal sheet and make 'Cilda' but I need to know if this aircraft had the large drag chute housing or the smaller ventral keel? I think it probably had the larger housing, but 45th TRS polka-dot aircraft had both kinds and I'd like to be sure. I don't fancy converting the Tanmodel kit to remove the large chute housing as that's already proving enough of a ballache on the Kinetic F-84F I'm backdating...
  3. Time for a thread resurrection, although I don't know if any of the players are still around on ARC. I've just started Kinetic's 1/48 F-84F and was using this thread for a reference. I'm making 52-6500 'Misanthropic Mary', which according to Cybermodeler is an F-84F-35-RE and has the short tail. I can't tell in relation to the parachute housing, but will assume it's the larger one, nor if it has a tail skid; again, I will assume there isn't one along with most other period photos. This means I want to shorten the tail. The plans on page 2 of this thread don't scale out
  4. Here's a HUK-1: https://jonbryon.com/amp-1-48-kaman-huk-1-huskie/ Jon
  5. Thanks 😊 Glad I saved you some cash! Jon
  6. I've built the HUK-1 and have the HH-43B. The sprues are all different. The rotor blades look very similar if not identical. It should be described as a new tool in my view; I can't see any commonality. Jon
  7. Maybe. Maybe not. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235108534-148-fairchild-republic-thunderbolt-ii-warthog-by-gwh/#comment-4371503 Jon
  8. Yes, e.g. https://jonbryon.com/kinetic-1-48-lockheed-general-dynamics-f-16b-fighting-falcon/ Jon
  9. Pleasure. I spent a lot of time on Google when I was making mine... Jon
  10. OB-924 (44-93224) is usually drawn without red areas. Below are photos I believe from 1950. OB-999 is also usually illustrated in the same manner: 44-33939 did have the red areas. The same photos are variously captioned from 1947, 1948, 1949 and 1952 depending on the publication. According to http://usafunithistory.com/index.html, the 4th RS was based in Guam until September 1949 when it relocated to Hamilton, California, which possibly casts doubt on the June 1948 date for these pictures.
  11. If you mean this airframe, it's the only one I can find marked up as such. All the other photos I could find for other airframes did not have the red, but I'm limited to what can be found on the internet. This is the Revell 1/48 kit in the scheme provided in the box, although it's so inaccurate all the markings are masked and airbrushed. Jon
  12. Thanks guys. This is encouraging! Jon
