    Vallejo Model Air...The low-down?

    I picked up a set of these from Hobby Lobby today, and I want to give them a try, but I've never used them. Looking for tips and tricks with them. Do they come pre-thinned for airbrushing? If not, what do you thin them with? I've got Tamiya x20 thinner and rubbing alcohol on-hand. A good PSI to spray them at? Any help is appreciated. Thank's guys n gals. Aaron

    F-15SA unique features

    Yes. Those are extra chaff/flare dispensers. I don't believe they are on any other version of the F-15 so far. Aaron

    GWH S4804 F-15C MSIP II Paint Colors

    What do you thin Mr. Color paint with? I'm working on an F-15 as well, and am looking for an alternate to Model Master. Aaron

    Midway remake

    I remember seeing the preview for Pearl Harbor in the theaters, just before I left to serve my two-year LDS mission. I was SO EXCITED to see it, and SO BUMMED when I found out it came out like a month after I left. When I got home, it was one of the first movies I watched. I remember thinking...I waited TWO YEARS...FOR THIS??? Aaron

    Buckeye is Aces!!!

    I second that, many, many times over. Twice as nice to meet in person, which I have had the privilege several times, and hope to have several more. Aaron

    F-15C/E exhausts 1/48 by KA models

    Where are you guys finding these on E-bay? I looked the other day and could not find any. I'm looking for the ones for the Revell/GWH kit without the burner tubes. Aaron

    F/S 1/32 Revell P-51D and Revell Me-262

    Bump. Sold the Mustang on E-bay. 262 still available. Aaron
  11. I have both the Revell P-51D-5NA Early version and the Me-262 B-1/U-1 Night Fighter for sale. Both are NIOB with all parts accounted for. Both also include Eduard canopy/wheel hub masks and Brassin wheels. I'm asking $40.00 plus shipping for each kit. PayPal preferred, but not required. PM me if interested. Aaron

    Does anyone know if there is/will be a US distributor? I'd love to get a couple of sets myself. The DO see quite expensive though. Aaron

    L/F part D7 from Tamiya 1/48 F-16 kit

    Yes, I'm still looking for it if you've got one to spare. Aaron
  14. Thank you as always Tim! Aaron
  15. Does anyone have a partial sheet they can give me the Vermont section from? The only part I absolutely need is the "The Green Mountain Boys" slogan that goes on the vertical tail. I got one on just fine, but screwed up on the other. Right now, it just says "Green Mountain Boys" on one side, and I'd like to fix it. I could try to paint it on, or even try to match the font and print my own (or even just leave it that way) but I'd rather try to get the decal first. This is the first kit I've tried to complete in about 10 years, and I'm trying to do my best on it. If anyone can help, I'd really, really be grateful! I can pay shipping, trade decals, whatever. Thank's for looking Aaron
