A suggestion for 1/72:   "F-35 - The Early Years".  Specifically, I'm referring to the first production models of each variant, i.e. AF-1, BF-1 and CF-1.  Great colorful tail flashes, and those markings haven't been done in 1/72, especially now that Academy and Hasegawa have done nice kits of the A and B.  (And the Orange Model release of the C is out there.)

Here is a suggestion for you all. I was digging through my F-15 decals and thought a much needed make is the F-15 Fighter Interceptor Squadrons, especially the 318th FIS. To my knowledge, the Expert Choice decals were the last ones to do them and they are not great.

I agree with Falcon053 & achterkirch.  I have the Mike Machat print of the 5th FIS F-15A intercepting a pair of Tu-95 Bears at altitude and it is one sharp paint scheme!  I would love to see the 48th and 318th as well.  K/r, Dutch

Actually, it looks like I have pretty much everything I need to put together an ADTAC F-15A/B sheet with markings of all three units -  I will announce this in the forum. In the meantime, thanks for another forum suggestion that will become a real product soon!

How about some VNAF birds in 1/72?

 

Or a 10th May 1972 sheet? I know some/most/all have been done but not all are available (anyone got Silverkite 211 from Fox?)

 

Or even the rescue mission for Locher on June 1st/2nd? 

 A-1H SkyraiderHH-53C;  F-4; F-105; MiGs.

The direct task force of 119 aircraft included two HH-53C rescue helicopters, bombers, and an array of F-4 escorts, EB-66s, A-1Hs, F-105G Wild Weasels, and KC-135 tankers.

This is my favourite titbit I learned today; "During the rescue, an F-4E piloted by Major Phil Handley shot down a MiG-19 using his guns while flying at over 900 mph — and is by far the only supersonic gun kill in history."

What scales do you plan on doing for this one?  And that’s fantastic news!

(No idea if this was ever done in any scale, at any rate I had never seen or even heard of this before...)
