  1. Hello guys, While researching the markings for my RF-101 build, it looks to me that different-sized national insignia were used on the camouflaged RF-101 Voodoo. The decals provided with the KH kit are somewhat larger from what I see on the period photographs. My question is: what is the 'official' size of the 'ministars' used on USAF combat planes during this period? Thank you for your help. Cheers, Quang
  2. Instruction for spraying insignia and markings. Basic material in my case: Montex masks and Tamiya masking material. Model: The Tempest from SH in 32. Preparing the masks, so that you find later on the correct position again. Make the right and left side easy distinguishable. Positioning for marking I recommend spraying the individual markings before the camouflage. It is easier and avoids masking over too large areas. You save a lot of masking material! After the camouflage is done, you continue with roundels and flash. Red color is first done. The small masks can be easily positioned, big ones are too complicated for repositioning! In my case the ID strpes too. So you may avoid decals. No silvering at all. Weathering is also more easy! Happy modelling
  3. Hi all, I have a question concerning a project I am working on. I plan to build the Tamiya 1/32 F4U-1A Corsair as a Royal Navy craft, and have been collecting items for a while. I have decided to paint as many markings as possible and to this end have purchased the "MonteX" super mask set # K32333. the masks and paint guide show standard (I believe) far east markings of a blue and white tail flash, and blue and white roundels on the fuselage. But the wing roundels are as follows: Outer ring of Blue then a red ring, and finally an inner spot of white. Is this correct? as I dont think I have ever noticed this arrangement before. Any help would gratefully received. Ian
  4. US Insignia 1947 to present. 1:48 Maketar These masks are for US Insignia post 1947. They are available in either vinyl or yellow Kabuki tape. The advantage with the tape ones is that they are lower tack and much easier to reposition if you get things wrong. They also seem to last a long time so will be suitable for multiple models. Vol I comprises 6 masks of each size 15", 20", 25", 30", 35", 40", 45", 50" and 55" Vol II comprises 6 masks of each size 14", 16", 33", 36" and 38" There are no instructions but then they are not really needed. Recommended for those who don't like decals, or if you want the true painted on look for your US models. VOL.I VOL.II Review sample courtesy of
  5. US Type One Insignia Super Scale International 1:48 New from Squadron Products in their Super Scale International range of decals is this sheet of National Insignia. These are the type used on USAAF aircraft between 1919 and 1942. Printed by Cartograph they are beautifully done. Quite glossy, and with minimal backing film they are bold, totally in register and very opaque. Each insignia is identified by its size being printed next to it and the instruction sheet shows which size went on a selection of aircraft and where they are positioned. There are forty one individual decals and represent insignia ranging from 25” all the way up to 50”. Conclusion This is a lovely sheet of decals, beautifully printed and well presented. If you need, or indeed want to produce an early USAAF aircraft and you can’t find the correct size of insignia then this is the sheet for you. Recommended. Review sample courtesy of
