  1. You can try here... http://decals.kitreview.com/decals/ced320067decalreviewrb_1.htm
  2. For some reason Wingnut Wings has an aversion for French aircraft. Best hope would be Copper State, with their release of the Nieuport series.
  3. Wingnut Wings seems to have little or no interest in WWI French aircraft. However, Copper State has been releasing the Nieuport series. I would think they are our best hope for a Spad, be it VII or XIII.
  4. I could use one of those at work when I'm getting nagged at deadline time. Along that line, I wonder where I could find a real one...
  5. Aw, what the hell, it's only money. Got mine pre-ordered.
  6. Still wish they would have included Robert Johnson's "Lucky" as a decal option.
  7. Additional Mustang decals coming out? Would there be any of Don Blakeslee's mounts involved? Maybe?
  8. C.O. of the 4th Fighter Group, Don Blakeslee's Mustangs need to be done. WD-C. That's it. Not colorful but historically significant enough that they should be done.
  9. I'm going to break my long and proud history of lurking, and, being a P-47 fan, not look down my nose at the Mustang, at least for this post. I'd really like to see a set for all of Don Blakeslee's Mustangs. He was a great leader of a great fighter group, and I've never seen his mounts represented. Back to lurking. -Charlie
  10. Yes, I think that I know the one you're talking about. But, is that the one with the noseart finger in flesh color? I'm pretty sure that it should be white. Charlie
  11. Greetings: The new 1/32 and 1/24 P-47 Thunderbolts coming out is great news for all of us who like to build really big. Between Hasagawa and Trumpeter, I figure someone's gotta get it right. I'm going to assume (or at least, really hope) that there will be Razorbacks coming out after the Bubbletops take off. Will there be any additional LSP decals issued? Once these kits are out, I'm planning on ordering what's available. I'd like to see Robert Johnson's HV-P "Lucky" (love the finger nose art) issued. I'd also purchase that Hub Zemke's Superbolt, UN-Z. And Francis Gabreski's earlier
  12. Jon Formon did a great build on that superbolt, didn't he? You know, what really grabbed me is the job he did on the wheel wells and landing gear. They're as real as it gets. Zemke's superbolt isn't necessarily the most colorful build that there is, but he was a great leader and a great pilot. I wish his markings were out there. Are there any 1/32 of Bob Johnson's Lucky? Another one I'd like to do in a big scale.
  13. Pleeeeeeeeze tell me that there are or will be markings for Hub Zemke's SuperBolt. Pleeeeeeeeeeeeze. (Not to be whiney or anything.)
  14. P-47 Thunderbolts from the 56th Fighter Group, all the way from the olive drab over gray P-47C to the RAF camo P-47Ds to the great color combos of the P-47M. Can't wait for the decals. -Charlie
  15. My all time favorite goes back to the Great War - Eddie Rickenbacker. He overcame great odds to become the top American ace in WWI. He was an "old man" at age 26, too old to fly combat, he didn't go to college, and he was an enlisted man cheauffering officers around. He got his twenty six kills in eight months, including a six week or so break because of a mastoid infection. It's a wonder that he came back from that one at all. And he even survived weeks in a raft in the South Pacific when his B-17 ditched while he was on an inspection tour. He was the measure of all American fighter pil
