  1. Excellent! Thanks for sharing! I used to watch Hogs fly over my house @200ft while they were doing TnGs at ft. Huachuca Az everyday. I wore a path in the grass from running outside every time they flew over! what is the top marking on the vertical? It looks like a uniform ribbon. Dale
  2. Well done! I always like to see models displayed in flight.
  3. That looks amazing! I may have to build that color scheme! Isn't the prop supposed to turn the other way? Excellent job!
  4. http://109lair.hobbyvista.com/DETAILSITE/US/USN/SBD/SBD1/1741.2-mb-13.color.jpg Here is an SBD-1 with wing racks. So there is that. It is my understanding that 250lb or less was the rule for the wing racks though the plane was rated for 2250lbs max. The SBD-1=Marines and SBD-2=Navy.
  5. Excellent! That looks really nice!
  6. Is this What you are going for?
  7. I believe it looks odd because the rudder is deflected. Here is my vote, PT-26A Rear fuselage shape matches Fabric covered fuselage Protuberance on top of rudder matches. Probably a light. Fuselage code in right place Main gear strut seems to match fixed landing gear Rear canopy bulkhead is the right place and shape tail wheel strut in same location fabric covered wing
  8. Clever idea and well executed! I've already assembled it 3 times in my mind!
  9. I had one way back when. The Mrs. got it for me for my birthday. I remember it being quite rough and certainly beyond my abilities back in the 1990's. I was delighted when the Alpha Flight kit was released. It far more build-able and much better detailed. Sorry I can't offer any build advice on your kit apart from gazing at it and passing it on. Forgot to mention that the Alpha Flight kit is a Mk. III.
  10. I found this late war picture of an airfield graveyard. Can anyone Identify the second one from the left? It looks like a bomber but the camouflage is all wrong .......
  11. Well, chalk one up to ignorance! I found that the next to the thread title took me exactly where I wanted! Who knew?! Thanks for the replies! edit: I guess it's called a dialogue balloon?
  12. It seems that all that does on my computer is bring up a small window that shows the latest post with no option to enter the thread at that point. Maybe if you could dumb it down to simple grunts and squeaks I can understand it.
  13. Is there a setting I can use so that when I return to a thread I have been to before it will take me to the first unread response? I find it tedious to have to stumble through a 12 page thread to find where it ended the last time I was there.
  14. And..... just to add to the overall confusion on the colors..
  15. After looking at the photo from a fresh perspective it appears that the "2"s in the background are actually a different number with the white part of the roundel from the next aircraft forming the top part of the 2.
  16. The fourth aircraft in, "2", is not the same aircraft as the colorized photo. The over spray pattern is different. That would be the 8th aircraft from the foreground. Which begs the question, Why are there three "2"s?

    Great picture! thanks for sharing it with us. Is that a three tone upper camouflage? I know that is unlikely but it does kinda look like it.
  18. If you haven't started sanding yet, might I suggest using Mr. Color thinner instead. It will easily cut through the paint and it will not mar the fiberglass. I use anytime i need to clean up a paint issue. It doesn't attack plastic clear parts even. I would test it before using it on clear resin though just in case. Now I'm off to fondle my new HPH B-52........
  19. Great pictures of a truly good looking aircraft, thank you!
