  1. Ah excellent - thanks for the update Kursad 😃
  2. Hi Kursad, Have you shipped to Hannants recently? Your early Eagles sheet is still not in stock there - been waiting over a month now!? Chris
  3. I'm currently "building" four of their C-140s. I believe the most charitable word that springs to mine is "appalling". Building the Airmodel vacform would have been quicker and less painful!
  4. Plus if you want current AH-64 stuff, Floyd Werner (Werner's Wings - www.wernerswings.com) is the guy to go speak to 🙂
  5. Hi all, I'm trying to finish off a T-3A from a resin kit (can't remember the manufacturer unfortunately). I'm struggling to find an appropriate prop and spinner (3 blade) and undercarriage - the kit parts were unusable. Does anyone have any ideas where I could take something from - the only alternative is the Heritage (?) kit but they won't provide a set of white metal without buying a complete kit and I'm not going to spend another £30+! Thanks in advance! Chris
  6. There will be something ...appropriate... coming in 2019. More details to follow... Chris
  7. Hi Scooby, It just depends on how big the package is, what's written on it and what mood the inspector is in... It's really annoying - I don't think anyone minds paying the tax and duty if due - but being hit for a $10 "admin fee" on a $15 decal sheet is really annoying!! Such is life I guess... Chris
  8. Hi Kursad, I don't think it's just the USPS - we're (in the UK) increasingly getting caught by our Customs for decals. Unfortunately, they are classed as "decalomanias" rather than "printed papers", which means they attract VAT So now if we buy a single sheet for $14 and then pay $5.50 for shipping, we might be lucky as it's borderline, but if we buy TWO, the order definitely comes in over the threshhold for VAT - so we get charged $11 (handling fee!!) + 20% of the total (including shipping!). Must already cause you enough problems - I can see why some US sellers won't ship overseas! Madness.... Chris
  9. You might want to check Aircraft in MIniature (http://www.aim72.co.uk/) and VideoAviation (http://www.videoaviation.com/ground-support/). Chris
  10. The Canadian flags were on a separate tab I forgot to include :) I didn't draw the intake warning markings - can't remember where I got those from...
  11. Hi Laurent, What scale are you wanting them in? Chris
  12. Kursad - you HAVE to do these in 1/72!! Chris
  13. Very nice job! I've built a few of those and they're not the easiest or best detailed kits...
  14. This won't solve THAT problem unfortunately - it's more to simplify marking AGE and flight line vehicles... But ikar has raised the question about door markings... Chris USAFline
  15. Hi Bob, We did look at this, but there's no practical way of doing it in 1/72 - the decals are just too small. And when you look at pictures of the real thing they appear pretty dull - the white especially... As regards "full" vehicle markings, I did look into doing number plates for the P-19 but they were so small they would have been pretty much unreadable! We have considered a set with door markings - these would be just about readable in 1/72 so it's certainly an option - the main issue being that it would have to be vehicle specific as they'd be too small to allow the modeller to make up their own numbers! Something to look into though - maybe in yellow (for security vehicles) and black (for green vehicles) ? Chris USAFline
  16. Hi all, For those of you with an interest, we (at USAFline) have just released our Vietnam 12' revetments in t/48 to complement the existing 1/72 set - see https://www.usafline.com/index.php/products-by-scale/1-48/view/productdetails/virtuemart_product_id/6/virtuemart_category_id/4. We will hopefully have 1/144 versions out soon - we have them in stock but I haven't had chance to prepare instructions as yet... Finally, we will be releasing a decal sheet to aid marking 1/72 USAF vehicles and AGE - it provides tape strips in black and white. Chris USAFline - www.usafline.com
  17. Mine arrived this morning... Absolutely beautiful! The F-102 was good but this is to another level - gets my vote as "kit of 2016" :)
  18. Mark - when will the new sheets be available to order? Chris
  19. I use Boa in the Czech Republic - very helpful and good service
  20. Hi Mat, We are concentrating on 1/72 for the time being - however the plan will be to scale up to 1/48 once the 1/72 items are established. Chris
  21. Morning guys... The website is now up and running - check out www.usafline.com. We also have a teaser for a new product which should hopefully be at Telford - with a few more to come which I've not had time to upload yet...
  22. I suspect the best way to get that effect would be to lay over a white decal underneath... There are so many individual variations that making a sheet to cover them would have to be almost subject specific... I will probably do an 18" white sheet at some point, although the next sheet(s) will be 24", potentially both 1/72 and 1/48 if I can get my act together!!
  23. Now available via Ebay.com - although for some reason it doesn't show up under "USAFline" but DOES if you search for FS36118! Onwards and upwards...
