Gentlemen,

The artwork for sheets 32003 and 32004 are done, I just need to finish the sheet layout. Once that is done, I will post images of the sheets. An announcement will also be made when each sheet is actually emailed to Microscale for printing.

Very nice, I have the Academy 1/32 F/A-18C on the workbench right now.  Was planning to finish as a VMFA-251 jet deployed to OIF during June 2003,  but now you have my interest peaked with more choices!

So glad to see you hitting the Marine Corps subjects hard Dave! For some reason I thought you were throwing in the towel, and boy I am glad you are not. Got any pics of that 232 bird? Also there is a 323 bird I have seen in this video at about 1:19 that is about the sweetest Low viz Charlie Hornet paint job I have ever seen. Have you seen any more of her. I can't find stills anywhere. It says 2017

I was at MCAS Miramar in January of this year took walk around photos of that 323 jet. I also took all of the walk arounds of 232 jets with mission markings from OIR.

Excellent, been waiting for that VMFA-451 ODS one. Hopefully 06 from your 1/48 sheet is included?

Yes, 06 will be one of the options.
