  11. Here are a couple of Photos from my Israeli F-4E Kurnass Used Eagle Designs Kurnass upgrade Resin Intake Covers Comments Welcome Bill
  12. There are markings for the" One " squadron and the " Bat" squadron. The small picture on the instruction sheet shows using the large stars on a "One" squadron aircraft. These had a red rudder with a blue and white chevron. There are instructions for all the stencils but not much on the layout of the upper markings. Again any help would be appreciated. Bill
  13. Thanks Gil I have tried to find some upper markings layout for the scheme with the large stars. The stencils should not be a problem but the layout of the markings is a concern. I will try to and find something for references. Thanks again Gil
  14. Hello All I am constructing a1/48th Israeli F-4E with very large Star of David markings. These came in Isradecals IAF-59. However I cannot find any reference to the topside marking placements or stencils applied to this aircraft. If anybody has any suggestions I would appreciate them. I have Googled the Internet with no success and I tried contacting ISRAdecals last week, with no reply from them.(bit disapointing) Thanks Bill
  15. I replied Last Night,But OH well This is an Anniversary Scheme for 1000 hrs for 72nd Gruppo, The Intake cover is a Kleenex Tissue soaked in water and white glue, formed around the intake,allowed to dry and cut to shape. Painted then re-installed after model completion. Cheers Bill

  20. Hey Gil Lucky for me no warpage except the wing struts. I replaced them with plastic struts I had Cheers Bill
  21. The Ansaldo A.1 Balilla was a key part of the 1920s era with the Poles flying quite a few of these. I had never been able to find a 1/48th scale kit of this aircraft. Thanks to the WW I SiG in Telford I obtained the Karaya Ansaldo A.1 Balilla resin kit. Great details but still a resin biplane. Lucky for me there are a couple of posts on the Internet regarding this aircraft and were of great help Using Wood Grain decals for the main parts How to determine wood grain and tone...ScrSince there was wood grain needed I had to do some testing Main Fuselage painted and waiting Future Wings with Brackets Some details Cheers Bill Thanks For Looking
  22. Gil... That is one fine looking Project..I describe Vacforms as Projects because I envy those who have the skills to accomplish them. You have accomplished with a flourish..VERY NICE
