  1. If you haven't started yet you might want to search around for the T. C. Berg resin version. It looks really nice with white metal and some PE. Mine says "Thomas Morse S-4C Fabric Time Specials No. 04 T. C. Berg Ltd Japan"
  2. Yes they were the kit decals. This boxing had hi-vis making for VS-28 and these for VS-38. I opted for the 1 color rather then the 2 color scheme Thanks
  3. This is my latest build; a 1/72 S-3A Viking. Hasegawa is my go to company when I want to build something and this one was not a disappointment. Fit was very good, with one exception. The decals were good and I think it make a good build. The one exception to the good fit was the underside wing to fuselage joint which I had to fill with 10 thousandth card. Also used was the Eduard interior. Next up is the Mach 2 X-24A
  4. The design goes back to the '40s. It just didn't become practical until the advent of composite materials in the 90's. Thanks
  5. Thanks. It is a nice kit. The only issue is finding one with good decals
  6. Thanks. I am not sure if it is a good use of my time, but I never give up
  7. Thanks guys. The contest description said "something like the Thunderbird" for colors so I hope it fits.
  8. For your viewing pleasure here is my Hasegawa X-29 build. I built this because the theme for my club's July contest is Red, White & Blue and this is the only kit I had with that scheme. Hopefully there will be enough of each color to qualify. The kit was the usual Hasegawa excellent fit. However the decals were a bit of a nightmare. The kit is old and so were the decals. I had 2 boxes. In one the decals were badly yellowed, but in the other they looked pretty good. However they turned out to be kind of brittle and I was trying to position them they started breaking apart. So I ended up with non optimal positioning and a lot of breaks. Luckily I was able to get a pretty good color match. but touching up the fine lines was difficult and I had to make do with good enough rather then perfect. Anyway, here it is; Enjoy
  9. Excuse my ignorance, but is "cracker" good or bad?
  10. Anyone know how it stacks up against the old HP kit?
  11. This is my Platz X-47B. I see that the X-47A was named Pegasus, but I have not seen any references to the B that use that name, so I am not sure if it carried over. Anyway this kit was a pleasure to build. The fit was excellent, including the weapons bay doors which they really wanted you to open, and the decals went down very well with virtually no silvering. Best of all there was no canopy or cockpit to mess up . More information on the actual prototype can be found at .https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northrop_Grumman_X-47B. Enjoy.
  12. I used Humbrol 28, supposed to be http://www.colorserver.net/showcolor.asp?fs=36622, on mine.
  13. Well all went well enough and I am declaring it finished More pictures can be found at
