  1. I missed it as well, Great work and inspiring. thanks yo you now I feel like renewing mine standing there under a coat of dust in my display cabinet
  2. Ben, When I did Bandit 04 and published it on my blog, a gentleman who served with HMS-32 contacted me - he cleared the same kind of questions for the names on the skyhawk I couldn't read. His name was actually on the nose gear as he was the crew chief for that particular aircraft. I took the liberty to recontact him to ask about Bandit 01. His response his in the comment on my blog: Not sure it's going to help because it's quite different from your current data but here it is anyway: Obviously that does not seem to match the bits you have on that picture ...
  3. Awesome. Quite honored to present a very small Christmas gift to you Kevin. Thank you and the LSP team for all you do for us. Thank you all for making this great raffle possible Merry Christmas
  4. Quite a special one in the collection. Very well done !!
  5. guilty of having done that with a corsair But I have quite a few pictures of real corsair doing that as well And I even might consider this on a Fisher Panther - call it blasphemy but it would fit my cabinet better.
  6. I don't think the triple launcher for the maverick was ever used operationally on the F-16. It was tested and that's about the only pictures of F-16 we can find with these. Probably because of too many limiting factors. Now, if that's the loadout you want to have and don't really care about it being fully valid, go for it and call it artistic licence After all, it's your model, your time, your fun.
  7. Late to the party but I'd like to join as both a donor and recipient Two different decal sheets, for two different winners: - Two bobs 32-034 A-7E VA-22 (camouflaged) - Mil Spec 32-009 VF-143 Pukin' Dogs F-14B (low vis)
  8. I use lightcraft, this one specifically but there's one big drawback* The pros are that you can easily change the lens to get different level of magnification The big drawback is that it doesn't stay on your nose: Most of the time you work looking down and these simply drop from your head because they don't fit tight enough. I found out that when using these you really need a headband for the glasses to stay put. I keep losing mines and it drove me crazy Luckily lightcraft have many different models, many of them with a headband, so make sure you get one that stays put
  9. Aires F-14B Tomcat cockpit before it goes into the Tamiya fuselage: A pleasure to work with, I just added switches lever.
  10. same kind of gripes. I bought the designer edition hoping I could import PSD formats Funnily enough this week working on commission custom decal and masks I had the sizing issue for the first time. I always work full size in 600 dpi PSD and usually export in .tiff but this week I made the mistake to export in web PNG and sure enough the import in silhouette was way bigger than usual (it was over the 12x12 matt) It was one of the WTH moment until I realized from my usual process flow. I think the web option may convert back to 72 dpi, hence the huge size difference, maybe that's something to consider when exporting some format? I also agree for the usefulness of importing in silhouette software. It's most of the time useless and it has to be reworked from scratch most of the time. At least I found that it's often quicker to work from srcatch rather than trying to make silhouette work with the fonts or colors. Beside the software crashes way too often. I must say I am not satisfied with the quality of that software. the concept is really useful but it should be done way more intuitively and efficiently (especially considering importing usual formats)
  11. Good looking navy jet Nick And a great collection.
  12. Nice choice Nick If you struggle with decals and need help with this , I'll be happy to help. I can easily cut custom masks for you. It would be a nice way to return the help you provided with my KFIR. Don't hesitate to ask if you need any
