  1. Just checked the Leading Edge site and the new Norad 60th Anniversary (72 and 48) sheets are now available for preorder with shipping on the 26th of June: http://lemdecal.com/
  2. Mine came in the Proteus kit but don't recall if they sold separately but it wouldn't hurt to ask them if they have any. Most markings could come off generic Canadian sheets (numbers, lightning cheat lines, roundels) but they are getting hard to find too......
  3. Why would you ever scribe lines on a Aurora? Look at the real aircraft and you will see that all the panel lines are filled (corrosion protection) so scribing would just be wrong even though I've seen guys "brag" about doing so. Leave the kit the way it is........They also wash down the aircraft after each flight through a shower at the end of the runway so don't do it too dirty either....
  4. If I don't shop at Lowes is this relevant as I should then avoid any conflict herein?
  5. Not from the basic kit being designed here. You will need to wait for someone to do a modernized conversion as they did in 1/72 or be prepared to do a lot of work yourself.
  6. Also see my reply in the Caracal post as to the coming Air-Graphics sheet as to a Desert Storm scheme.....
  7. Don't know if you have seen this but this new sheet in development looks like it has a Canadian Desert Storm machine coming: https://www.72news.eu/2019/03/air-graphics-desert-storm-decals-sheet.html and he is well along so no need for Kursad to look at that scheme, but others would surely be appreciated......
  8. Check out here: https://www.ebay.ca/str/aviaeology They have done others over the years that aren't in production right now but may be found at decal retailers such as Hannants, Flight Dec etc......
  9. Why would you want that sheet when the idiot used the wrong (modern) Maple Leafs in the roundels. Clearly poor research........,
  10. Okay...Heller won't help with that but why not ask for the decals too P.S. the Heller kit would give you the clear roof base to put that on and the missiles but that's all
  11. Just as I am sure that you would not like to be mistaken for a Belgian, remember that ARC is run by a Canadian.......
  12. For what it is worth, there is a Heller kit (80284) that is a retooled Airfix Gazelle with the French roof mounted sight and Hot missiles and some other parts but it is basically the Airfix kit
  13. There is detail on the Robinson R44 here: https://www.72news.eu/2019/02/stranskyrobinson-r-44-astroraven.html and the Kamov here: https://www.72news.eu/2019/01/ace-model-instructions-and-markings-for.html Both look pretty good....
  14. Dave...For what it is worth, both the Dream Model 1/72 US Coast Guard Dauphin releases (H65A/B, H65C) have photo etch sheets that include 1/72 baskets but I haven't checked to see if Dream Models sell the photo etch as a separate detail set. You would just have to add the floats at each end. HTH Cheers Bruce
  15. Actually no posts in here count and thankfully he (it?) hasn't corrupted anywhere else on the board. Maybe Vinnie uses voice recognition software as that would explain why he is always shouting
