    No love for OH-58A

    I would buy at least one set in 1/48 scale. I have several ESCI Bell Jet Rangers. Nice model. The hard part is getting other decals, specifically law enforcement and fire/EMS.

    1/32 & 1/48 - Hughes TH-55 Osage by AMP - 3D renders

    I hope this one is made. About 10 years ago Profiline did the CAD drawings then never made it. I don't believe anything anymore unless it comes to pass. But I'll certainly buy the two scales if it comes out.

    AV-8 Harrier Question

    Does anybody know what the white or gray stripes are running along the flaps and alerions on the British Harriers? I see them on the old green and green scheme the most.
  6. 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

    Yes. There are several more in the book and a color profile. That is the only one I remember with a pod.

    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.
  10. Ok, Thank You, I didn't look at the date. Old age.
  11. 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
  12. 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

    1/48 bird dog decals

    I would love to see O-1 decals in the gloss OD and Intl. Orange. That the way they were painted in Lancaster Cnty., PA airport off the Columbia Pk.

    RCAF F-101 Colours

    I thought they were painted in Canadian Voodoo Gray. I know Testors/Model Master used to make it.
