  1. I have one of the sets, but I haven't used it so I can't comment on the quality of the decals. I also can't comment on accuracy, but they do include a photo or two of the actual machine. Jon
  2. Art Scale do quite a few sheets: https://www.hannants.co.uk/search/index.php?product_category_id=&product_division_id=&manufacturer_id=363071&code=&product_type_id=all_decals&scale_id=955&keyword_search=AH-1&setPerPage=25&currency_id= Jon
  3. The thread that just keeps giving. Thank you Jon
  4. These images are super-helpful (in addition to the fantastic walkaround from Dave Roof) - especially as the first one gives a slightly better view of the underside. Quick question: What is the cross section of the thing circled in red? Is it circular, oval, flat or something else? Thanks for the help - much appreciated. Jon
  5. Here's a quick and easy method I used last week: Clamp blade to steel rule using a clamp and magnets. Dunk in near-boiling water for 30-60 seconds. Result: This is for 1/48 CH-46 blades. Jon
  6. Dan, This is great - thank you for such a thorough reply. Does that mean the eroded leading edge should be a metallic colour (the nickel strip)? Cheers Jon
  7. Here are some photos I've found of 157667 which would indicate a very light brownish grey would be correct:
  8. Well, surely you agree the highlighted sections aren't black, weathered, faded or otherwise? Unless I'm missing something really obvious?
  9. I have to confess to being a bit confused. 157664 was originally an F, but should have had fibreglass blades by 2006? Here's some better images from the instructions. I think you can see why I'm tempted to go with a very dull metallic colour: Jon
  10. Thanks. That what I would have thought, but a CH-46 mech on FB has just informed me it should be metallic, so I'll go with that. Cheers Jon
  11. I've a feeling I might be asking quite a few questions of this group... I'm making the CH-46E in this image, from AOA : The rotor blades are pretty worn, but what I don't know is what colour they wore down to. It is metallic, or grey? Any help is appreciated Jon
  12. Hello, I'm starting Academy's 1/48 CH-46E today and will be using the AOA decals to model 157664 EH-03. AOA supply three great photos of this airframe, but they are a little small and only partial on the left side. I've done quite a lot of Googling, but not come up with any more images. Is anyone aware of any more photos of this airframe from the 2006 USS Bantaan deployment with HMM-264? Just looking for more references. Many thanks for your consideration Jon
