  1. Thank you all for the helpful ideas. It soulds like the thinner is the main culprit. I think I'll switch back to Testors, the stuff I grew up using, to finish this current project. Duane
  2. I really need help on probably the simplest thing, but for the life of me I cant figure out what Im doing wrong and I'm really about to give up and toss my current build all because I cant figure out what I'm doing wrong with my dullcote. I'm using Mr Color GX 181 for a semi dull look and using just Jasco Lacquer Thinner. I used to use Tesors but thats gone and I'm not going back. I'm doing 1 part 181 and 2 parts thinner, my psi is at about 10-12 and I keep getting the dust look. I understand the atomizing and I guess thats whats happening, but from everything I've been able to rea
  3. Looking forward to this one. One of my first models I built was a 1/72 Tutor in Malaysian markings.
  4. So I wonder how they are going to get that to fit onto C-5s and C-17s? Being a retired Aerial Porter I think of stuff like this. You can get 2 Blackhawks onto a C-17 easy, I think 6 or 8 on a C-5. If you can't rotate the blades and "wing" like an Osprey that might be fun.
  5. Oh man, really sad to hear this. I just bought his F-8C set a couple months back. Was really nice and great to purchase from.
  6. Hello, I am in search of the Isradecal IAF-82 1/48 decals, specifically the JASDF E-2C decals. If anyone has this sheet and doesn't have plans to use the Japanese markings I'd be very interested in hearing from you. Thank you, Duane
  7. Hill AFBs F-35s are ACC (Air Combat Command) fighters. The 4 Squadrons at Hill are all front line deployable fighters and have been sent on many deployments, most recently Eastern Europe. The reflecors are standard for use during training missions so Air Traffic Control can see them so there not issues with other air traffic. Its true they can be taken off, but on training missions where they are flying for bombing practice, its better to be seen by others.
  8. I have a need for a 1/48 Wolfpack F-15J set. If anyone might have one or at least the nose that's specifically on the Japanese F-15J, I'm looking to purchase or trade for one. Thank you. Duane
  9. A great trader! I had a question about the Mig-29 9-13. We worked out a trade for an extra part she had in exchange for what I could get. She sent pictures of the part and shipping receipt and was great in communicating. Duane
  10. Maybe 4477th TES (Red Eagles) T-38s please!
  11. Can someone answer what the difference between the 1/48 GWH Mig-29 9-12 late and 9-13 kits are?
  12. This is look great, now all I need is for Academy to release the kit again so I can get one.
  13. Hello all, I am working on a VX-9 Suoer Hornet and I'm in need of a part off the Fightertown Decals sheet, or the whole sheet if you want to go that rought. I'm in need of the BLACK Vampires lettering for the drop tank, not the dark blue one, the black one. Any help would be great, thank you. Duane
  14. Hello all, I'm looking for one, or more, Wolfpack WP48022 F-16CJ sets. If you have any in your stash, I'd like to buy or trade for any. Thanks, Duane
