    Draw Decals has the Thunderbird P-51C in 4 scales and they suggest Tamiya Mica Blue, spray number TS-50.

    Chris, Hobbycraft 1/48 HC1655 had the floats only. HC1656 had the wheels and skiis and HC1657 had the wheels, skiis and floats. See scalemates for details. These do pop up on Ebay every now and then. usually at a premium though. Dean

    HH-52a Seaguard

    There was a kit of the S-62/HH-52A made by ITC Model Craft, the hobby division of the Ideal Toy Corporation in the early 60s. Kit # 3676 was listed as either 1/50 or 1/51 scale. It was also later reboxed by the Ringo Toy Corp as the "Sikorsky Helicopter" and the "Sikorsky S-62", both kit # C552.

    CD72035 - Douglas C-54/R5D Skymaster Part 1

    Regarding the Blue Angels R5D, it appears the nose, fuselage cheat line, engine cowl fronts and the vertical tail tip will have to be painted. No problem. The yellow used on the R5D was FS13538 Orange Yellow. Are the MM13538 Chrome Yellow #1707 or #4683 close matches to the printed decals? Any other paint brands available? Looking forward to this and the T-Birds sheet. Thanks, Dean

    Postwar C-47 markings

    How about the Bird of the Sun (travel club) C-53? Was one of the more colorful local birds in the 70s. See at http://photovalet.com/281344 and http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/39677-dc-3-bird-of-the-sun-travel-club-decals/ Never did finish photographing the whole plane. Parks682Decals actually did a very limited run of decals in 2010. Dean

    Asking here-Trumpeter HU-16A 1/48

    Does anyone know if Trumpeter had a successful enough run of the 1/48 HU-16A Albatross to think they might be thinking of doing the HU-16B version?
  11. There's multiples of both books on Ebay right now, mostly in the low $20s.

    Top Gun 2

    If Scott hurries up he can get Justin Beiber for the lead. Beiber's only used up about thirteen of his minutes.

    RoG PA-18 Super Cub 1/32

    all I've found so far is Tower Hobbies. Anyone know of any other shops? (preferably US located for the shipping time factor only- not too well versed in mail ordering) TIA, Dean

    "Crewchief 1: The UH-1C Huey"

    Hi Joe, MIGHT have a spare copy. Pete and I go way back to the early Flight 19 model club (FLL-USA). I made the original master to the 1/48 Sikorsky S-58T nose that Pete marketed when he started the Cobra Co (again way back when). Chris still sells it online. Pete also did some other self-published quarterlies titled Rotor Wash that were really great-B+W. He gave me one of the 1/35 test shots of the MRC UH-1C Huey's and I gave him one of the Bell 47D test shots I got from MRC (all pre-production) He's quite a dynamic and knowledgeable person particularly with helicopters. (Nam crew chief). Ask him about IPMS contest judging/judges and step back fast.......I'll have to dig for the Crewchief 1 but if I got a spare you got it. Drop me a line and I'll keep my eyes out for it. Dean
