  1. Why should it matter? And if you don’t desire a heated debate, why choose such the pejorative term “greed’? If they’re purchased for resale at a potential profit that simply makes them a commodity, subject to “supply & demand.”
  2. That’s a museum piece in search of a museum!!
  3. It was a pretty ”nieche” (limited delivery aircraft & lifespan) weapon system. . .
  4. Just emailed an order for 2 each decals & cockpit! What gorgeous stuff!!
  5. Stupendous! You really nailed the burnt metal exhaust effect!
  6. You just made me glad I purchased TWO ICM kits!
  7. Mk.I AND Mk. II! Very good thinking. . . Now, who'll be the first to give us the Fairey Reed Prop?
  8. I think your build just helped ICM sell a few more! That silver dope finish looks perfect! What did you use to accomplish it?
  9. CSM would sell a lot more of these two if they choose to include decals for airframes OTHER than IRAS . . .
  10. Were there F-51's "drafted" from stateside Air National Guard stocks flown by USAF units in Korea? If so, might they have been delivered as originally painted by ANG units as a corrosion control measure? And, isn't that Chappie James in the first photo?
  11. And there are photos of Korean War F-51's WITH H-S cuffed props right alongside those WITHOUT. . .
  12. Keep in mind this was 1944 not 2014; that "overwhelming amount of supplies" had to go through a very long logistics chain from the US to the ETO and tracked by pencil & paper. And why did the USAAF use paper drop tanks made in Britain? Because they were there when they were needed. . .
