    Wow Kev! Did you find any bitcoin while doing all that processing?

    Have a look at HobbyDecal.com
     
    They have 1/32 white panel numbers for F-4. Couldn't find other stencils but I know they did 1/48 versions of stencils because I have a set.

    Not necessarily. Several of us don't ask for anything in return. In fact, if you're not an "employee" or working as a paid consultant and offer to help on your own, you shouldn't expect anything in return. Back in 2002 when Academy released their F/A-18, I pointed out several problems with the test shots. They contacted me and asked if I would send them details on what needed to be corrected. I did and they corrected them. A few months later, a check for $200 and a case of Hornets were delivered to my house. It was a pleasant surprise.
     
    Over the course of the next few years, I helped with the F/A-18D, F-16C, CH-46E and CH-53E. Got my name in the instructions and was satisfied with that. There are currently three other kit manufacturers I'm 'working' with on potential new kits and want nothing more than to help them make the best model of 'XXXXXXX' available. Don't expect to get paid, have my name mentioned or get free kits. 
     
    I'm not alone here either. We don't offer to help to get stuff. We offer to help because we enjoy helping and have been blessed to be in a position to do so. There is no tangible substitute for the satisfaction of knowing you were part of a project that helps other modelers enjoy this hobby.

    This must be gut-wrenching for the people involved with Kitty Hawk and I feel for them.
     
    I always assumed there were enough modellers in the world who could manage to build great models from their kits (I am not one of those) but apparently not. A real shame as I think their helicopter kits look fantastic.
     
    Sad news, I wish them well for the future.

    Don't believe everything you read. This is a smokescreen to lull our enemies into a false sense of security so they will attack us and then we can kick their asses.
     
    I think there is a flaw in that argument somewhere but can't quite spot it.

    Then again, it's a private business and neither you or anyone else outside of the company is entitled to an explanation.

    So far, this is where the build is at. The gooseneck is glued on, the suspension is attached to the flatbed and the wheels are assembled. I am now starting to add details like photoetch and getting  more small parts cleaned up, ready to paint.
