  1. Nice work. I’m sure the recipient will be pleased.
  2. Spoke with my son this evening. The T Birds arrived today as well as a few static display aircraft. The forecast is looking better. Looks like it should be a good show.
  3. My son is a newly minted crew chief with the 122FW of the INANG. He just informed me that he will be launching aircraft Saturday and Sunday. I’ll be there. I’m hoping for good weather.
  4. I’m sorry but I don’t remember. I’ve had problems posting with Imgur lately. I discovered Postimage.org and found that site was much easier to use.
  5. Any more progress on these kits? You have done good work so far.
  6. Like the heat staining on the exhausts. Nice work.
  7. Bury Us Upside Down is one of the best books I have read. I could not put it down. A must read. I need to read Misty now. After I read it, all I wanted to do was build a F-100F.
  8. I had the honor to meet him and shake his hand this last December at my son’s graduation from Air Force basic training. His squadron was The Raiders, named for the Doolittle Raiders. They were honored to have Lt. Col. Cole attend their graduation and speak for a few minutes afterwards. Fair skies and tailwinds Lt. Col. Cole.
  9. I have a bottle that I bought in June through mail order that remained sealed until a couple of weeks ago. When I opened it I found it had gelled. My LHS just started to carry MMP, so it was off to buy another bottle. I was going to write Mission Models to see if I could get my money back, but after reading their FAQ I figured that bad bottle was a write off. Reading this thread confirms that.
  10. Nice work. As you mentioned truly a trouble free kit. I built one a couple of years ago for a Pearl Harbor theme for our local IPMS club. One of the few kits that I have completed from start to finish in a short time.
  11. Great looking pilots. Looks like one is saying to the other “I feel the need for speed”. Any my chance of a version with the pilots wearing helmets?
  12. I used Vallejo paints. I used Russian Uniform (924) for the seat cushion. Medium Green (850) for the belts and USA Uniform (922) for the chute risers. The belts maybe a tad dark.
  13. Nice Triple. The colors look about right. Who made the decals?
  14. Boeing grey is too light as you can see from the picture of the engine cowl. The wings, landing gear, gear doors and engine pylons on most of the Boeing fleet are Boeing grey. The exception is the 787 where wings and pylons are white. The fuselage has more blue in the shade of grey than Boeing grey.
  15. I think the Tamiya silver mica is too silver. I had hoped to paint a few tests to compare with the real thing but didn’t have time before having to head out on my next trip. When I get back I’m going to try a few colors to see how they match up to the real thing. May take a week or so.
  16. What era are these figures from? Are they reprentitve of crew members fro the 2000-2010 period or the 1980’s -1990’s time frame? Either way they look great and it’s good to see you to continue to expend you selection of figures. Hope to see more. It would be great to see some more flight crew figures. Also fire fighting crew members to go with skunkmodels workshop fire tractor.
  17. Dylan, thanks for the heads up on the silver mica from Xtracolour. If I can find it I’ll give it a try and compare it to the real thing.
  18. Photo I took today showing the contrast in greys. The forward section of the engine is the silver mica of the fuselage while the aft section is Boeing grey. The far aft section tends to run darker from exhaust during reverser operation. Taken with my phone on a cloudy morning so not the best photo.
