  1. The books say the Mk. III A (SD) had luminous color painted on top of the steps on the ladder, does anybody know if the were glow in the dark slime green or painted with flourescent colors? If so what color of floursecent paint? Thank You in advance
  2. I found that Revell-Germany says to use the following: 60% #9 Anthracte Grat plus 40% #302 Semi-Gloss Black
  3. Dear Sirs, I believe the color is called Eggplant Gray. Hataka makes paint for it: A-230 Dark Eggplant Gray, A-296 Faded Dark Eggplant Gray. At one time I had references to the colors but I don't know where it is. I'll try to find it and let everyone know.
  4. I know colors were discussed about the color of this aircraft many times. I have the book: Air Vanguard 12, Lockheed A-12. On page 60 at the top of the page is a photo of M-21 and A-12s. Put the photo in bright sunlight or a bright light. They look to me to be painted in that dark blue. You be the judge. But all the other photos in the book are flat black. Is it possible that they were dark blue when new but turned black after flight? I don't know. I'm confused as everyone else.
  5. I have a question about Auroras 1/48 Kit 505 HOK-1 Huskie. I remember a very long time ago I bought the above kit, and it had an option of equipping it with pontoons. Does anybody else remember this too? Or is my old age leading my mind astray? Also does anyone have the original kit instructions that you could scan and e-mail me? E-mail: shmlmm68@frontier.com
  6. I would think only a civilian paint scheme and interior

  9. I believe it is supposed to be Zinc Chromate Yellow. Al the bottles I ever had it was definitely yellow in color
  10. Does anyone know if the US Army Night stalkers still use the OH-6?
  11. Anybody have any insight on the kit in the title? I saw it on Scalemates tonight. Anyone have AMP website?

  15. Is anybody else not being able to get the following: Scale Rotors, Links www.modellversion.de
  16. I have both the Monogram B-24D and the B-24J in 1/48 scale. The instructions on either one are not clear as to weather the nose gear doors retract up into the fuselage or are on the outside of the fuselage when the nose gear is down. I have two of the Squadron Signal B-24 books but didn't see anything about this. I have two questions. Does the B-24D nose gear go on the outside or inside? Does the B-24J nose gear go on the outside or inside? Thank You in advance.
  17. Yes, the 1/32 one. Maybe it wasn't released yet, that why we hadn't seen anything. I guess I jumped the start gate.
  18. Did anyone build one yet? I didn't even get mine yet.
  19. I'm sorry to hear that your best friend died. They truly are mans best friend.

  21. Does anyone know which Monogram kits included books with them in their model kits? I am looking for the kit numbers and book titles. Thank You in Advance
