  1. Hi Andy, Don't know if it is in the FS system or not but try 33307. In the FS system, the first number is the "sheen" i.e., 1 - Gloss, 2 - Semi-gloss, and 3 - Flat. The second number would be the tone (my word, for lack of a better memory!) where 5 = Blues, 6 = Grays, and 3 = Browns, 4 = Greens, etc. Give it a shot until someone comes up with a concise answer. Cheers, WARDOG
  2. Nope, That was an Air Force Osprey, not one from the Marines! Cheers, WARDOG
  3. A VERY good forum here with lots of GREAT info! In spite of it all, I guess I will still just use my old KP kit with the Carpena decals "F" nose, and maybe bash-on some Hasegawa main wheels and possibly, fuel tanks. It's "The bird in hand syndrome"! Now, all I need is a set of Madagascar decals! (Prematurely gave mine away years ago!). Cheers, WARDOG
  4. Hello, old Friend! For modern Russian weapons, you can also check ResKit. They have a wonderful amount of Russian bombs, missiles, and rockets/pods in 72nd scale. They are not cheap but, they are beautiful representations of Russian weapons (some with photo-etch fins for added realism). Shop around for the best prices! ICM weapons sets are best avoided. Their weapons are very crude, but their load-drawings are nice! If you use Google, you can look for something like "MiG-29 1/72" for example, and you should get a lot of referrals and pictures for different MiG-29 k
  5. Hi Larry, I too have bought, but not used a set (1st Generation Harriers) of their decals. I do like the fact that there are specific stencils for each aircraft option so that you could build ALL the options instead of one or two. Let me know if/when you might want some 72nd Harrier decals (like for a Thai AV-8A or TAV-8A!). WARDOG
  6. Hi Larry, I'd say very light Gray also! Compare the gloss White pilot's helmet to the aircraft's paint. It's my method of color-checking these photos, look for a color I "know" and use it to compare another color to. Take Care, WARDOG
  7. Aye, she IS a beauty! Unfortunately, I have heavily invested in the Hasegawa kit with a lot of resin parts so.... I'm also not such a big fan of photo-etch but I WOULD like a copy of that bigger SLAR pod to make mine an accurate Argentine bird though! (I wish they would sell that separately!). Cheers, WARDOG
  8. Navy Bird, Thank You for this EXCELLENT information! It should get me a lot closer to getting my Ruski aircraft painted correctly! I am also hoping AKAH make (or reference) some more of their colors for a Mozambican An-74, Ka-29, and some of the interior colors for cargo planes. Cheers, WARDOG
  9. NOICE! I am inspired to build my F-5E and F-5N kits as Air Force and Navy birds, respectively. GREAT Job! WARDOG
  10. Hello and Happy New Year, Old Friend! I agree on the lack of modern 1/72nd French weapons availability (especially air-to-ground weapons) but your information is pretty good. I would like to add that if I recall correctly, the Academy F-8P kit has some decent Magics, others may no better though! One buddy did give me some spare Special Hobby Mirage F.1 missiles and bits and I can use them on my Hasegawa F.1CT and Heller F.1CR kits. One slight disagreement on the Academy Super Etendard kit though. If you want to rob it for fuel tanks, etc., it's OK but the
  11. Hi Franky Boy, You might want to look up some Mode Decal sheets for the F-104s. If I'm not mistaken, there is some color info somewhere on one of their sheets. Hope this helps, WARDOG
  12. Howdy Mike, Yeah, I've seen these colors called-out for the later scheme before but they just don't seem to quite fit the bill out of the bottle (at least to these old eyes, anyway!). I will either mix something up or see if somebody out there makes something close for my 72nd SuE, Lynx Mk. 4 (FN), and Super Frelon kits! I also think the SuE is a pretty cool bird! Just waiting to buy a nice cockpit to go along with the correct paints so that I can get mine on display! Take Care down there, WARDOG
  13. No disrespect to your post, but I'd settle for the correct camouflage colors for one in ANY scale! WARDOG
  14. I'm in for a nice Revell kit too! I became interested in the Shilka because of it's use in the Arab/ Israeli conflicts years ago and have fantasized about having one in God's Own Scale! WARDOG
  15. Yep Des, I have been eyeing the 116 too for my M F.1CT kit but have s little struggle with the "bluish-Gray" shade. WARDOG
