  1. 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?
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. 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!
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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!
  8. 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!!!
  9. Hello All! I'm looking for the decals from Revell's 1/48 F-100 with the 494th TFS boxing. Photo below for reference. I will take as many as I can get my hands on. Thanks!
  10. Thanks for answering my question! I was leaning toward the ZM kit, so I might pull the trigger and get it. I took a look around and read a bunch on the ZM shape issue, but it looks inconsequential considering nobody coming to my house will notice but me.
  11. Hello All! Could any of you Phantom Phanatics help me figure out which 1/48 kit would be best for building an accurate F-4D from RAF Lakenheath? I will be using Xtradecals markings for F-4D-29-MC Serial 66-7502, circa 1974-1977. Photo below for reference. I'm assuming the decision will come down to either the Academy or Zoukei-Mura 1/48 F-4D kits, but I know almost nothing about F-4s, so I would appreciate the advice! Thanks in advance!
  12. Hello All! I'm just coming back to the hobby after about a ten year break and am super excited to build again. Since homegrown industries have exploded worldwide over the years, I'm curious if anyone out there makes custom decals upon request. I'm looking to build some aircraft that no one has done decal sheets for and was hoping someone could design and print a sheet of squadron insignia of varying sizes so in the future I can build whichever aircraft I want from those units. Any insights into this would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance!
