Hey everyone, my daughter loved the B2 Stealth bomber at the Air force Museum and got me one for my birthday. It’s a 1987 Revell model so you can imagine the state of the decals. I saw on Scalemates that the Nationals had a set of B-2 decals. Would love to use them if anyone has a set and would part with them. Let me know 😃 Chris

In the process of repainting and remarking a metal 1/48th B-24J, I discovered that a critical part is missing as the result of a burglary. The cockpit canopy. I'm assuming the canopy from a Monogram 1/48th B-24J would fit, so... If anyone has a scrapped Monogram B-24J that still has an intact canopy, I'd appreciate hearing from you. Don't need the rest of the model, just the canopy. Willing to pay a reasonable price.
Back by popular demand, the Douglas A-1 Skyraider comprehensive guide, is a third edition reprint.
The Skyraider is best known for its never-ending ordinance delivery load on ground attack missions and supporting Search Air Rescues over the jungles of Vietnam, it was born with neither of those capabilities in mind. The Skyraider started out as a replacement of the SBD Dauntless and eventually the SB2C Helldiver. In June of 1944 Chief Designer Ed Heinemann suggested revamping the entire design and by March of 1945 had a completely different design.
Skyraiders served in the US Navy and Air Force as well as other nations air forces such as France, Gabon, Chad, and South Vietnam.

Atlantis models is releasing shortly, the old 1980’s kit of the Allison turbo prop engine in September. Unfortunately the kit will not come with the motorizing accessories included with the original. I am hoping that someone out there may have an idea of where to obtain these componants without having to purchase the entire old kit off the internet. I’m mainly interested in the gears and their support structure within the reduction casing. I’ve spoken with a representative at Atlantis and they evidently don’t have the molds or aren’t interested in producing the extra parts.
I have the instructions for the motorization and would be glad to share them with anyone who would be interested and would provide an email address.
The animation of,this model was what really fascinated me the first time i built it and don’t understand why it was eliminated from successive issues.
