    Here's the cybermodeler page for the C-130 SEA camo scheme. The image comes from USAF T.O. 1-1-4. C-130 Southeast Asia
  2. I *may* have 1-2 copies of those sheets in storage. I sent all but a few Fights On sheets to Sprue Brothers when Mike Pister and I decided to split up Fights On from Vagabond. (Rough year, that one.) I already have had one request for a couple if I can find where the movers put then. If you can give me a couple weeks to get out to my storage room with actual time to look, I'll be happy to see if there's any left. I can't promise they're still there, however. Stuff was packed up over a year ago, and I was already at my new job when the movers came. We've had 1-2 boxes turn up missing as we've g
  3. I'm honestly not sure about Jeff V, but I believe that's the essence of it. I find it poetic that he's now sponsored by Sprue Brothers. It's honestly sad the way it went downhill - every time I went to an open house, it seemed like their warehouse got emptier and emptier. They they started charging admission for their open houses, and only for Eagle Quest attendees, leaving NCT IPMS high and dry. The last show I went to in 2019, MMD cancelled their tables the week before the show, leaving the club with a very sparse dealer area.
  4. Hopefully nobody steals their joy... MMD failed because of mismanagement, high overhead and once a new management team was installed, lack of understanding of the hobby. In the mid 2010's, while we were living in DFW, I'd go to every NCT IPMS open house they'd host, and since my daily commute would take me very close to their warehouse, I'd usually have an order to pick up every so often. MMD had about 30-40 people working there at that point, including 3 full time graphic designers for the flyers, several other office personnel, and the warehouse staff. By c
  5. I've been told that one of the other aftermarket brands is trying to acquire the True Details masters as payment for money owed by MMD to them. No clue how far along this process is, though.
  6. Yeah... NO. Vagabond Decals will not be selling our art to anyone. Vagabond is still very much alive, and Vince Maddux and I are working on new sheets as we speak. We're about to send it off to Cartograf before the end of the year. Since these sheets were released, I've dealt with: Losing a baby girl at 5 days old Welcoming another daughter into the world Getting laid off Finding 2 new jobs Moving back to Alabama Welcoming a SON into the world (right before the pandemic, no less) House hunting in Alabama Simple fact of t
  7. So far, Anniston, AL, is still on for October, depending on how the rest of the summer and autumn go.
  8. Micro Sol and Micro Set work just fine with PNT decals. I've used them several times with no issues.
  9. When Mike Pister and I were working on those Fights On sheets, this was one of the schemes I pushed to include and ended up drawing for the placement guides. You've knocked this one out of the park! Awesome build!
  10. JT Graphics decals are great, but he takes forever to ship. Jeff W. works in the medical field, so he's been insanely busy IRL lately, which hasn't helped his shipping times. His decals are ALPS printed, and he puts the time in to make sure they're right. Be advised, though, he's having to raise prices because of how much ALPS cartridges have gone up in recent months. If you need them RIGHT NOW, I'd suggest the options from Federation Models, Starship Modeler or CultTVman.
  11. Squadron is in deep trouble. Their "Chief Modeler" is gone, and I'm being told that their CEO has departed abruptly, too. From what I've been able to glean, they've been on life support from their bank for a while, and the bank's starting to say "enough."
  12. The Pink Panther and Roadrunner art will require licenses from United Artists (Pink Panther) and Warner Brothers (Roadrunner). We looked into doing the Project Magnet and Project Seascan birds a couple years ago, and the licensing costs from Warner Bros were prohibitive, to say the least. What they quoted me for a license was almost triple the estimated print cost for the sheet.
  13. "The Weight" - The Band "Walk On" - U2 "Wonderful World" - Louis Armstrong "Breaking of the Fellowship" - Howard Shore "Mr. Tambourine Man" - The Byrds "Gone Too Soon" - Daughtry *This one really gets me, after our little Charlotte. And since it's Star Wars week... "Binary Sunset" (a.k.a. the "Force Theme") "Duel of the Fates" For fairness: "Star Trek: First Contact Main Theme" - Jerry Goldsmith
  14. You might try Joe's Models and see if he still has any of the Aeroclub white metal props in stock. You need P079. I've got a set of these, and they're quite good. I'd show a pic or 2, but they're in storage right now. http://www.joesmodels.com/AEROCLUB_72_PROPELLERS.htm
  15. If you read the Hobbico bankruptcy filing, Testors is one of the top 30 creditors owed money. Could be enough to put the nail in their coffin.
