Possible new topics?

Recommended Posts

How receptive would a Canadair/Bombardier CL-600/601/604 and 605 sheet be? Kits have been Done in 1/72nd by Amodel and BPK and in 1/144th by BPK. Countries off the top of my head would be Aussie, Danish, German and Canadian examples..... I'm sure there are more.

 

Cheers

Emil

Kursad, you made a very nice F-104 in Vietnam service.

What has been missing is a 1/72 version of early USAF and NASA F-104 and TF-104 Starfighters, the colorful ones.

Now that we have 1/144 C-9 decals inbound, how about markings for the Boeing T-43 / C-40? I see the former is based on the 737-200, for which we have kits from EE and Airfix, and the latter on the 737-700, available from Zvezda. If there's room, I'd love to see bonus markings for a 1/72 T-41.

 

I'm not expert is airliners, so please correct me if I'm mistaken.

T-43/C-40 are definitely a good idea, and I will start working on B737 base drawings soon.

Ditto for early Starfighters and the T-41 : I put these on the to-do list for future releases.

Well done! I'll keep a T-41 sheet for sure! I take the opportunity to show you the vintage Testors O-2 with Caracal decals...

To follow up on  Dutch's request, I would like to see a 1/72 F-16/79 and F-16XL and also a 1/72 AV-8B prototype.  Vingtor has done them but the sheets are impossible to find.

What about a sheet of post-war USAF and ANG C-46 Commandos in 1/72 scale?  I know that there's only one old kit out there, but still...

I like the idea of a post war C-46 sheet in 1/72 and 1/144 too!

Any chance of some T-28C Trojan decals for the US Navy in 1/48? Or for the AU-23A Peacemaker in US Army markings in 1/48? Basically anything for Roden kits with their terrible decals!

Here's a schizophrenic C-46 I found on Facebook. It's captioned as, "Republic of Korea Air Force Curtiss C-46D 0-7696 (c/n 33092 ex USAAF 44-77696) photographed at Hong Kong in the early 1960s."

How about 1/48 AH-1Z Viper and UH-1Y Venom. The kit decals are not very good.

I believe Zvezda's kit is a 737-800. I would not mind getting another 737-200 though. I thought they were OOP from Airfix.

Zvezda announced a 737-700 / C-40B to be released later in 2019.

I just want to say a few words about new topics here.  Kursad has been great!  Even better than great, just plain terrific to us modelers.  He listens to our requests, no matter how inane.  He has just completed a huge push and pumped out several decal sheets in the past six months and is going on a well deserved vacation soon.  Let him have his rest.  He has quite a "to do" list already promised to us, largely through this Forum.  I just went to his website and tallied up the number of requests he has fulfilled, and it is astounding!  He also has a pretty healthy backlog of planned or announced sheets.  And there are still countless other requests mentioned in this thread that he has not weighed in on yet.  So before we pester him too much, can we let him get a little caught up please?  Just going through his website right now,  his backlog includes the following.

CD 32012: US Navy T-2C Buckeye

 

This is not meant in any way to criticize, goad or depress Kursad, but to show how much he listens and has promised to satisfy our insatiable desire for more markings!  He has produced so much for us and the hobby in general, that he deserves our praise, respect and thanks.  Let the man enjoy his vacation, catch his breath and hit the ground running when he gets back.  And he hasn't even started on a few of my personal favorites yet.  Let's all build a model this summer using a set of his decals, take some great photos and send them to him to show off and display in his future gallery page, either here on ARC forum or on his company website.  Thank you Kursad!

 

Semper fidelis!

Hi Kursad,

 

Have you ever considered doing a 1/32 F-105B/D Thud sheet?  I'd think there are any 1/32 F-105B decals out there (OOP Cutting Edge Thunderbird markings excepted) and I am about to start my F-105B conversion of the Trumpeter kit 🙂  The majority of the sheet could be post-war "D" birds as that would be much more popular option of course than the "B" model.  I'm using a resin conversion kit for the "B" so I hope you could at least include a ship from the 141st TFS NJ ANG.  Here is the one I plan on doing, F-105B 57-5789 (my own low-res slide scans):

And then again in not so happy times as a boneyard survivor, but a BDR airframe:

Thanks!

I do like Derek’s idea for B mode F-105 decals.  In 1/48, there is both the Falcon conversion and the C and H conversion that are available.  Not sure how well a whole sheet of that subject would sell though...
