  1. After looking at this website, they have several other sheets I'd like to have. And the euro is trading at parity to the USD. Thank you.
  2. Tauro sells 1/32 smoke ring decals #32459. I got 2 of them about 5 or 6 years ago. The rings have a soft edge to look airbrushed
  3. Sounds great. I'll keep checking website. Think about a set for 1/48 B 25 please.
  4. I was wondering if you have an estimate when the P 38 landing will be available again. I need a set for Trumpeter kit. Thank you.
  5. I've been ordering fasteners and metal stock and tooling from McMaster Carr for 20 years or so. They have virtually anything in SAE or metric. Plus I'm in Wis and if you order before noon you should receive it the next day. They will answer the customer service phone personally and have been very helpful if you made an error or change contact/shipping information.
  6. Check Kevin Martin’s 109ace Facebook page. He’s releasing his resin/vacuform kit 1/32 P 51 B/C Sept 1. I’ve ordered one today. He’s offering a 10 presale for 100USD with the shipping included. I got no 1.
  7. I bought from used micro drill bit guy some years ago. The very small dia. below .016 break off very easily and snap the tip end off in the hole use at your own risk. I also bought packs of small bits from Mcmaster Carr.
  8. This has been announced for years. The only other options if you can't wait is 109ace Kevin Martin. He has an all resin kit about ready to go or you can get a resin conversion and the bottom of the old Hasegawa D and along with the Revell kit is possibly used per Bert Kinzey P 51 Early P51s. Myself I will have ago with the conversion and buy the resin kit also.
  9. Ordered from SH Sat. Prices: Kit $ 90.70 Shipping: $6.76 PayPal: $ 3.90. Total is: $ 101.36, about what I guessed, couldn’t preorder as I was moving. SH sent confirmation 2 hours after order placed.
  10. I bought two Combat Models kits must have been almost 20 years ago. IMO they were apply named. I got the ME 410 and Ta 152. Saved what I could for scratchbuilding.
  11. Well, I must say it looks like it was worth the wait. I have both CA kits in the works and there is no comparison, the quality of Special Hobby keeps improving with every release. I’m a big fan.
  12. Great article and photos. My experiences in Wis were in the 60s & 70s seeing B 52s from K I Sawyer flying at treetop level, first you would hear the roar that military jets make, a brief glance overhead. The other area was from the palisades at the junction of the Wisconsin & Mississippi rivers when the planes would fly below the ridge and you would look down on F 102s. Same roar and brief glance. Most recent example was in the early 2000s. Heard the roar in Sheboygan Wi and turned out to be a B 2 flying quite low, looked to be about 500 ft. By then you could look up things on the internet, I read that the B 2 was returning from a shoe in Michigan.
  13. The ancient 1/48? Aurora aircraft kits I remember were the cherry red 109, bluish spitfire, screamin’ yellow zero and the OD p 38. I also recall the all black P 61. This was before 1961. Built a fair number of box scale Monogram too.
