  1. Hello, The F-100D sheet 48128 has a link for a reference to decal placement given as http://www.caracalmodels.com/references/cd48128/. However, this link simply leads to text that says: The reference page this sheet will be online by July 3, 2018. Does anyone know if this reference page exists? Thanks Jon
  2. Thanks Whiskey. Surprisingly, the decal was fine. I just draped it over the probe over a large puddle of Mr Mark Setter, and then dumped a lot of Daco Red on it. It's the third time I've applied a decal like this (also on the Hasegawa A-4C and A4D-2) and each time it's gone better than expected! Jon
  3. As I've been posting elsewhere on these forums, I'm making four Hasegawa 1/48 A-4 Skyhawks simultaneously and here is the second. This is their A-4L without any aftermarket and in the Cartograf-printed kit decals. Paint is mostly Mr Color. A full build article is at https://jonbryon.com/hasegawa-1-48-douglas-a-4l-skyhawk/ and there is some WIP at https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235065709-hasegawa-148-a-4ehl-and-ta-4j-skyhawks-update-19032020/ Comments welcome and thanks for looking. Jon
  4. Kitty Hawk 1/48 F-94C: GWH 1/48 T-33A: Tons more pictures of both at www.jonbryon.com Many thanks to Caracal...and can we have some FJ-4 decals in 1/48 please? 🙂 Jon
  5. I'm making four Hasegawa 1/48 Skyhawks concurrently (WIP thread is here) and this is the first to be finished. It's the Hasegawa 1/48 A-4E in aggressor markings from Fights On decals. The only major change I made to the kit was to fill in the leading edge slat bays so there is a smooth transition to the wing. There's no aftermarket other than the decals, and the paint is all Mr Color. A full write up can be found here. Comments welcome, and thanks for looking. Jon
  6. If you're going to build the ICM kit, there are some issues with how the front fuselage joins to the rear. I've tried to document some of my experience in building the kit here: https://jonbryon.com/icm-1-48-mikoyan-gurevich-mig-25pds-foxbat-e/ It is a really great kit though and if I had time, I'd be getting a recon version. Jon
  7. I made some comments on building it as a GR.1B here: https://jonbryon.com/tornadogr1b/ Jon
  8. There were substantial differences between early and late production Vigilantes. Is the decal sheet going to focus on one or the other or include both? Jon
  9. It was released in Dec 2019. I've had mine for a while. Jon
  10. Last one for 2019: Airfix's 1/48 Seafire F.XVII with markings from the kit. Only additions are an Eduard PE harness and Master gun barrels (I know, I know, wrong for shape for a Seafire...). Paint is MRP (top) and Mr Color (underneath). First attempt at hairspray chipping and first real attempt at using oils over a flattish clear coat. Full build article and more photos here: https://jonbryon.com/airfix-1-48-supermarine-seafire-f-xvii/ Comments welcome & thanks for looking. Jon
