  1. MRP on the left, Xtracrylics on the right, photographed in direct sunlight.
  2. Huh? Those are squares and rectangles. The Russians use hexagons.
  3. Short answer: no Long answer: unless you have access to actual engineering drawings from the manufacturer, any scale drawings you may find that show rivets are simply a rough guesstimate at what they really looked like.
  4. A Google Earth image of the Marine Corps field at Emerald Isle, NC.
  5. It was meant in good fun. If you've been around pilots and airplanes very long, you know there's a very dark sense of humor associated with the flying business. I've personally experienced an off-airport landing (in the middle of Hollywood, Florida) that totaled the airplane, so I have some personal first hand experience. Fortunately we walked away relatively unscathed.
  6. I suppose that's possible. They're pretty small, so we might consider that. I'd love to do the whole set in 1/32, but it would be really expensive to print (on top of the expense for the 1/48 set), and our 1/32 sales are a tiny fraction of our 1/48 sales for a given subject. They'd need to pay for themselves, even if we didn't make any profit off of them, but it would probably take a long time for that to happen.
  7. No, at least not for now. It's a gigantic project, and we just can't afford to do it in 1/32 for the amount of sales it's likely to generate.
  8. I've read two different accounts that say the hangar was attacked and the Mriya destroyed. I don't get what's "political" about this. Is it any more "political" than discussing WWI or WWII or Korea or Vietnam or the Civil War? There is a right side and a wrong side, period. And it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out which is which either.
  9. Ali of Aerocraft Models has an open canopy set available. https://aerocraftmodels.bigcartel.com/product/ov-10-bronco-openable-canopy-set-for-icm-kits Given that the country is at war and fighting for its life right now, I suspect commercial air traffic in and out of Ukraine is going to be minimal to nonexistent for the foreseeable future, I wouldn't count on getting anything from anybody there. Of course, some folks here seem to think that's a good thing....
  10. Here's the skinny on the gear strut and speed brake placards we'll be including in the Phantom stencil set... The key numbers are just place holders until I get everything sorted out.
  11. If the airplane ceases flying, by definition, it's a landing
