  1. I have the Hasegawa 1/48 SBD-4 and the Academy SBD-5. both have control sticks, and rudder pedals in both front and rear cockpits. Since both have them. I am assuming they are accurate. This is new to me, I never knew they were set up like that.
  2. If I remember correctly all CA police vehicles by law had steady red front facing lights and alternating rear amber lights at that time.
  3. I need the following: Instructions: IMC, Kit # 401, 403, 1/48, Gates Learjet Series 24. Thank You in advance.
  4. Here is what the lights were. Red, both sides, steady burning facing front. Amber, both sides, alternating flashing facing rear. During that time period the amber lights were almost orange/red, not like they are today which is yellow. You had to be really close because from a distance they almost looked red.
  5. I got my Grumman G-164 Ag Cats today. They are beautifully molded, with photoetch, brass, resin and a instructional CD too. They come in a nice box too. Great model of a great airplane.
  6. How about a Cessna Ag Wagon for a second kit?
  7. Does anybody know where to get them, or how to order them?
  8. Does anyone know if they still make the interior an tail resin sets for the Trumpeter 1/48 HH-65? Also does anyone make decals for both the 1/48, and 1/35 Trumpeter HH-65? Thank You,
  9. Does anyone have any paint information of the Russian SU-25 Frogfoot, painted in the dark gray over blue or the dark gray over light gray? I need to know the official colors or some other equalillents to paint my 1/72 SU-25. Thank You
  10. Front cockpit- Flt. Blk. FS-36? Rear cabin- Flt. Dk. Gry. FS-36231
  11. Does anyone know where I can buy the following: " B-25 Mitchell " book type magazine? I saw one at a Barnes and Noble within the last year, But I didn't get it. Now I'm looking and can't find it on the computer. Thank You in advance
  12. Does anyone have spare decals for the Italeri, 1/48, P-70?
  13. Does anyone have any spare decals from the Italeri, 1/48, P-70?
  14. If anyone is going to the World War II Weekend June 7,8,9, 2019 please take photos of the aircraft and post them.
  15. Bill, Is the Academy, 1/48, F-111F still available? Thank You, Steven H. McLain shmlmm68@frontier.com
  16. I remember back in the 1960s (late), there was a group near where I lived. They were gloss FS-1087, and International Orange FS-19197. They used to fly low before the fireworks on July 4. Streaming red, white and blue smoke, really low. Below is the information you need. INTERIOR COLORS All cockpit and interior FS-34151 Interior Green Upolstry plastic coated fabric FS-34092 Seats FS-34086 Instrument panel FS-36231 Dk. Gull Gray, black instrument faces OUTSIDE Overall gloss od FS-14087 Lettering gloss FS-13538, except gloss white FS-17587 "ARMY" on sides
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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
  21. Several very excellent books I have since I am working on an F-89 also: Squadron Signal, F-89 Scorpion in action #1104 Squadron Signal, F-89 Scorpion Walk Around #5561 Detail and Scale F-89 Scorpion #41 Aero Fax, F-89 Scorpion Schiffer Publishing, F-89 Scorpion I saw photos of Iowa ANG in all of them
  22. Yes. There are several more in the book and a color profile. That is the only one I remember with a pod.
  23. 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.
  24. 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
