  1. Hello all! I ended up buying a Caracal sheet. Their 6" numbers are almost a dead match, being ever so slightly larger, but only just barely. Thanks for your help!
  2. I'll take a look around, so thank you. Does anyone actually know the regulation size for the serial numbers on this style of F-100 markings? It would help me out a ton to know this. The sheets for 45 degree numbers/letters I have in my stash all have 8" as the smallest, but these are simply too large. Techmod has a sheet that goes down to 6", so that might work, but...confirmation would help!
  3. Hi, sorry, I should have been specific. I am looking for 1/48. Thanks!
  4. Hello all! I'm trying to build an F-100D in early-70s SEA camouflage, but the decal sheet I have comes with incorrect tail numbers and I need to find replacements. I have multiple decal sheets for USAF 45 degree letters and numbers, but none have numbers small enough to match the ones on these F-100s. Does anyone know if a decal sheet that has the correct sized numbers for this style of F-100? If not, does anyone know the official size of these tail numbers? Here is a photo of what I'm talking about:
  5. That is EXTREMELY realistic weathering. How did you achieve that brown dust/dirt effect all over the aircraft? I've never seen anyone ever pull something off like this before.
  6. Thanks, I took a look and I'm pretty positive the 1/48 Hasegawa F-86F-40 comes with the same 200 gallon tanks used on the F-100. Now where to find someone to part with them?
  7. Thanks for this! I contacted Gerry and he's taking a look to see if he has any leftovers. Thanks for this as well. I could see in articles that people were using the tanks from F-101 kits, but they didn't really specify the tank size.
  8. Thanks for confirming this! I've also read that the 1/48 Revell/Monogram F-101 comes with the same 200 gallon tanks. Do you know if this is true? Thanks again!
  9. Hello All! I'm about to build several F-100Ds in 1/48 scale. In every reference photo I have for the individual Huns I want to build, the jet is carrying the external fuel tanks shown in the photo below. I believe these are 200 gallon tanks, but I'm not sure. Any F-100 fanatics out there who could confirm this for me? Also, if they are 200 gallon tanks, does anyone know where I can source them in 1/48? Thanks!
  10. Thanks, that's a very useful and detailed answer. Looking at things, I think I could modify the seats and the missing throttles wouldn't be visible with a closed canopy. But honestly, out of all the issues with the kit, the one I find irredeemable is the missing canopy spar. I can understand if a company gets the shape wrong (I can even overlook the intake shape, in this case), but to be not even bother to include a very visible part is really disappointing. That spar is visible whether the canopy is left open or closed, and it'll bug me to no end. The 1/48 Aires F-100F
  11. Hello all! I'm building Trumpeter's 1/48 F-100F, but have noticed three glaring errors in the cockpit that need fixing: 1) No throttles included 2) Front seat should have a split headrest and associated mechanism, but the kit only provides two rear seats 3) The canopy reinforcement spar is totally missing. Strangely, they molded the space for the spar to fit between the front seat and the rear console, but never made the actual spar. Does anyone know if there are aftermarket correction sets for these issues? I found seats by Black Box, but they seem signi
  12. OK, I was thinking I would have to print out various sizes until I get them to fit properly. Unfortunately, everything I'm designing decals for is from the 1950s and 60s, so I don't have as many reference photos as I would like. I'll have to run test prints. Thanks again!
  13. Hi Rob! I have to admit, this is hands down the best advice anyone has ever given me on ARC! At first I was very doubtful, but within just a few nights of playing around I was able to use Inkscape to create about half of the insignia I wanted in really accurate detail. This has been pretty revolutionary, so I thank you very much! Would you be so kind as to point me to where I can learn how to properly adjust my designs so they fit the right scale? I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks again!!!
