    RCAF Kittyhawk colours?

    Most likely, the colours were American versions of the standard Btitish scheme of Dark Green, Dark Earth and Sky (there has been much discussion about light grey versus sky on several sites.) Check the ipms canada site, you may find more there. Cheers.

    Really stubborn old paint, what to use to remove it

    oven cleaner is often mentioned as a good paint stripper BUT beware the fumes and protect your skin. Good luck.
  4. Here is an RCAF dirty bird for your perusal. I found this on the net but couldn't find the original source
  5. I wonder if there was a "dirty bird" contest for the C/F-18s, between the USN and the RCAF, who would win?
  6. When it comes to your work, two words come to find: Awe and Wonder. Best wishes.
  7. What? No rude comments about electric personalities. Sorry, but the problem is fairly rare out here on the wet coast of Canada, with our usual damp weather.
  8. Oh good. A mini Herc. Will JT get the demo model for his desk or the kids' playroom?

    18 super hornet for RCAF

    Seaking replacement - part 2 The story starts with, "We hate the F-35 Because the Conservatives liked it. Let's cancel that, dick around with "negotiations" with Boeing and pay their price, hold another "competition" and delay things until after the next election and then pick something that offers the most industrial offsets for la belle province." Do I sound cynical? Sign me disappointed.

    Canopy seals...

    You might try painting a clear decal sheet in the appropriate colour, then cutting to shape and applying. Just a thought. Cheer.

    Hurricane looses wheel on landing.

    Glad to see there were no injuries. BUT WAIT! Was that the Tirpitz in the background (about 3:18) running up in the top right of the frame??? 😱

    RCAF C-130J

    Hi Shawn Great model. Could you point me to a source that gives the size and location of the fuselage plugs for the stretched version? I woul like to try to follow your build, but with a 1/72 version. I hate to count the number of times I've ridden the red seats transcon in the earlier Hercs. Thanks, Brian. oops - should have said CC-130 J
