  1. So far, Anniston, AL, is still on for October, depending on how the rest of the summer and autumn go.
  2. Micro Sol and Micro Set work just fine with PNT decals. I've used them several times with no issues.
  3. 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!
  4. 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.
  5. 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."
  6. 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.
  7. "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
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. I've got one at home. I can scan them in tonight. PM me your email address.
  11. As a decal manufacturer, I try to avoid publicly critiquing other manufacturer's offerings, mainly because I know my own products can and will have errors sneak past not only me, but my partners in crime from time to time. Having said that, I've got a couple of Print Scale sheets, and the research and quality seems to be well done, but some extra proofreading of the art might help take their product to the next level. I'm pleased with what I've gotten every time, with one notable exception - their A3D Skywarrior sheet in 1/72, and that only for the aircraft type and BuNo markings. Skywarriors
  12. Here are links to the color charts of the remaining Testers Model Master paints: Original MM Line ModelMaster II Line
  13. Attack Squadron makes absolutely gorgeous refueling pods, sponson corrections, nacelle corrections and a very, very nice flap set for the Italeri kit. I've got a copy or 3 of all their C-130 1/72 stuff, and it's well worth the very affordable price. Scott Zuieback (rebelalpha on eBay) carries their stuff in the USA.
  14. Having been a Mac user since they first came out, I can tell you that in my experience, if the program you need/want isn't available in a Mac version, then there's probably a different, equivalent, Mac program that'll read/write your files just fine. Since Macs are now Intel-based, there's several options for when you absolutely must run Windows or a Windows program. My preference is to use VMWare fusion to run Windows as a virtual machine, in "Unity" mode. This basically hides the windows desktop, and allows you to launch Windows applications from the dock, just like you would a Mac, and most
  15. Fights On and Vagabond are separate entities now. (albeit still colluding on decals) Fights On sheets are available exclusively at Sprue Brothers and Hannants, now. I just sent a huge shipment to Sprue Brothers (basically all of the decals, except what I need for the local shows and my own stash), which they should get on Monday.
