  1. Good day/ evening all. I am on the hunt for a set of decals for VMFA(AW)-242 from the 1/32 Academy F/A-18D kit #12118. All I need are the decals for this airframe, BuNo 165686 DT-01. I have the original boxing of Academy's F/A-18D so I have all of the weapons stencils, I just need the decals specific for that aircraft, and a copy of the decal placement sheet please. Let me know if you have a set you will not be using and what you are looking for price wise. Thank you all in advance. Dave Fassett

  3. I like the oil / exhaust leak streaking that has taken place on the bottom of the exhaust nozzles. Also note the streaking from the gun gasses off of the RWR sensors on the bottom IB side of the elevators, very subtle but there.

  6. Hey Dave, any plans for a turned exhaust set or NTS nose for the Italeri kit? Dave Fassett
  7. I would go with at least the intake and exhaust covers. On most aircraft at shut down we will throw on, at the least, the intake and exhaust covers. Now if we are storing the aircraft for an extended period of time that when we place all of the fod covers on. That's just my two cents and how we do it. Dave Fassett
  8. WOW, beautiful build, you took a truly awful kit and made it look outstanding. I feel your pain, I am in the middle of building RV models 72nd MIG-21MF. It is a true dog, I have spent more time fixing misplaced panel lines and inaccuracies. Like you said, these kits require A LOT of filling and sanding. Again, outstanding build my friend, I hope mine looks half as good as yours. Dave Fassett
  9. This is shaping up into an excellent build. Really like the work on the cannon and the sensor package. Dave Fassett

  11. Thank you all. I just ordered some Stynylrez as that seems to be the best in the acrylics side of the house. I just found out too that the liquid surface primer in a bottle by Tamiya is basically their spray can formula in a bottle. Looks like you thin it 1:1 with lacquer thinner to shot it through your airbrush. I am going to give this a try and the Stynylrez. Keep the ideas coming in case these tank. I may also give the Mr. Surfacer a shot, I have a bottle of the 1500 sitting on the shelf. I will just need to pick up some of the Mr. Color leveling thinner. What are your thought on Model Master acrylic gray primer and the Ammo one shot. I found a bottle of the Model Master in a kit I inherited and I got a bottle of the one shot in a solution box I got for Christmas. I love the Ammo products but I have never been impressed by acrylic primers. Thank again. Dave Fassett
  12. Hey all, Ok I may be opening a can of worms but here goes, I am looking for a good all around primer for my kits. I am looking for something that adheres well, fills small imperfections ( minor scratches, small pin holes, slight dips, etc), able to be sanded, and takes all types of paints. I paint primarily in acrylics but I do use enamels and lacquers occasionally. I have used Tamiya's primer, and like it, only draw back is I can only find it in spray cans, and I don't want to have to decant to use in my airbrush. So with all this said lets hear what y'all use, the good and bad sides of them. Thank you in advance. Dave Fassett
  13. I'm with you both on the wheels, and with Darren on the seats. The first thing I look at on a model is the cockpit. A well done cockpit and seats makes an aircraft model stand out, to me, same with the wheels. If the wheels look off, or have to much "bulge" to them, they can ruin a perfect build by having that "somethings off look". That's just me two cents though, with that said I cant wait to get my hands on this kit. Dave Fassett
