Aloha!

 

Decals  have arrived from Cartograf and we're packing up your kits for mailing now...

 

I figured the Navy / Marines ships deserve their own thread since there's so many that can be done. As mentioned a while back there will be  more decals available shortly for the glossy sea blue and utility ships but here's whats in the kit:

Paul, that looks wonderful, and much as I want another AD-5 , I'm saving my pennies fro the Guppy, I have a picture in my mind of a AEW Skyraider on my Nautilus wood deck section, folded wings, and crew swarming all over it ,, 

 

Looks like that's Christmas taken care of!

 

And thanks for producing such a splendid conversion

Lovely looking kit!

I am also saving pennies for the AD-5W version, hopefully markings will be included for a Royal Navy aircraft?

Happy days!!

Good Morning LSP!

 

Yes indeed, I shipped out another 25 yesterday, by Monday all the pre-orders will have been shipped. As always I thank you for your patience.

As soon as the Caracal decal comes out I will have some to sell on my website too, shouldn't be too long. I want to do one in that glossy sea blue with the reserve band....

 

Finishing up the AD-5W Guppy now, and some other goodies.

 

Paul

Mine's on it's way, too!
Mine will be a VA-65(?) bird with Willow Green trim outlined in white. There's a photo of it in "Skyraider in Action".IIRC.

Got mine today and as usual the quality is excellent. This will definitely be done in Marine Corps markings. Looking forward to the additional decals and of course the AD-5W. Many thanks for the excellent products and superb service. Now, about those Marine Corps Skyray decals.....

Paul
Any chance of pre ordering the decals, as I don’t want to miss out the decals. I’m pumped up for the Dark Gloss Navy Scheme
