  1. I am building Round2s/Ertls 1/25, Int'l Scout II. I used to have one of these trucks and they were great in snow and off-road. My old Scout II was painted DuPont 6787 Concord Blue. Does anybody know how to get this color or come very close to it? Thank You

    LF:F-89J Scorpion 124th FIS. Pictures/Info

    The Schiffer Publishing book on the "F-89 Scorpion" has some photos of Iowa F-89s in silver and A/c gray. I didn't start it yet.
  5. Ok, Thank You, I didn't look at the date. Old age.
  6. I am currently building the 1/48 F-89 Scorpion and F-94 Starfire. I am confused about the following: 1. What were the time periods for using fluorescent red/orange and fluorescent orange on aircraft? 2. Was Insignia red ever used on any aircraft? If so what was the time period? 3. When did the use of FS-12197 Intl. Orange start? Thank You, Steven H. McLain
  7. Dear Sir, By any chance do you still have the Revell, 1/48, F-89C Scorpion, Kit # 85-4825 for sale? Thank You, Steven h. McLain shmlmm68@frontier.com

  11. Does anyone other than me remember watching the William Tell Competition on TV in the 1960s? If I remember correctly the ones I saw were off the coast of Florida using F-106s. Maybe F-101 too. I think it was on ABCs Wide World of Sports, if memory serves.

    Does anyone know if any of the United States services used the H-21 with the larger vertical tails? If so which versions and what branch of the armed services used them. Thank You in advance.
