  1. They use Cartograph and are amazing quality decals.
  2. I'm working on an A-10 right now and it really varies, not only edge but also shape and how far forward or back it is. The jet I'm doing, which is from the 190th FS, has more a soft edge, but doing my research, they had jets that were all over the place. I know this doesnt help, best thing to do is lock onto a jet and Google the s___ out of it. Duane
  3. I'll toss my 2 cents in on this and hope it gets some interest, 86-0053 in 466th FS markings. I got my incentive flight in this jet long ago. https://www.airliners.net/photo/USA-Air-Force/General-Dynamics-F-16D-Fighting-Falcon-401/1035246?qsp=eJwtjEEKwkAMRe%2BStUKlWKQ7vYAuvEBIPlqszpAJ6FB6d%2BPg7vEevIUkvRwfv9YMGqmATe60oczGz0LjQg/UdzINpsOw7bp9H7kk81MNpew4iiA79O/PprBfQpF2usV5FwC7NKZ%2BCK9TyTO3B5ynmdb1CxMqLf4%3D
  4. I have really wanted to do a UH-60J for a very long time, hope this all happens.
  5. I have ordered one from Lucky Model and have yet to see it so I ordered one from HLJ and got it in a week. The kit is nice, pannel lines are on par with Tamiya. I have started working on it, but haven't gotten too far. The biggest issue I've had is the joining of the two upper fuselage halfs, the joints are rather small to glue together and I had problems getting them to line up correctly, but it could have been a me problem. Otherwise parts have been lining up very well with little if any filler going to be needed so far. Next for me is the intake.
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. Looking forward to this one. One of my first models I built was a 1/72 Tutor in Malaysian markings.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. Maybe 4477th TES (Red Eagles) T-38s please!
  16. Can someone answer what the difference between the 1/48 GWH Mig-29 9-12 late and 9-13 kits are?
  17. This is look great, now all I need is for Academy to release the kit again so I can get one.
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. We will need to try and talk Arnaud from BAM Models to come up with a conversion set to go along with these. Excited to see these come out.
  21. I'd be interested in the B-26B...PM'd.
  22. Hello all, As the title says, I'm looking for a Wingman Models 1/48 Kfir C10 conversion kit. I have trade items or just an out right buy. Duane
