    Vermont Aiir Natiional Guard

    Sorry, late to this party. Born and raised Vermonter(Chittenden County) I don't think VTANG ever flew F-86Ds(Think that was Maine) I think the list was as follows... P-47M, P or F-51H, F-89C, F94A, T33, F102A Case XX, EB-57E(yech), F-4C/D. F-16A/B/C/D, and F-35 in less than a year! The first 4 are easy to do your own decals for, as I believe it was just a VT and the Guard Shield on the tail, and US AIR FORCE near the front on each side. Serials #s can also be found using Google. T-33 has two decals in 48th as mentioned, and Caracals are really nice for the GWH kit. Unfortunately nothing for the F-4 or EB-57...yet. Superscale for 1/32 and 1/48 F-16A can still be found on eBay Academy's F-16C kit has lo-vis VTANG markings Afterburner has a Block 25 VTANG jet on their Balad Vipers or War sheet, if you can find it....quite rare now. I put them on the Tamiya 16 and presented it to the Pilot a few years back. Speedhunter has Block 30 MIG Killer with VTANG markings on it's Guardian Vipers sheet http://www.reidairpublishing.com/product-p/shg48014.htm Jake the owner is having a Black Friday sale and at $10 that sheet is a bargain with 13 different jets on it. Two Bobs has a small sheet with two F-16Cs on it, one is the 60th Annv scheme, the other the Wing King's jet that is very nice. http://www.twobobs.net/contents/en-us/p227.html but SOLD OUT. They can still be found around as well. Nothing for the F-35A yet, but I wouldn't be at all surprised to see something soon, since it'll be the first Guard unit to get the 35. I talked to the VTANG PAO at an airshow last summer, and she said the scheme will pretty much match the Eglin scheme(Lo vis) with VT instead of EG, and the Guard shield on the tail. Hope that helps...

    Bugattin Aircraft crashed yesturday

    Very sorry to hear that....RIP
  4. Personally, I view some weathering as a way to cover up mistakes in paintwork. Really good weathering, while rare, is subtle and few can pull it off.
  5. Finally! This should have been ended long ago. I always felt that starting someone out on a snap together was kind of silly.

    Bleche Wite and resin models?

    That's great it finally flew! Looking forward to this build, Pete!

    Omaha?

    How is this relevant? Attendees of events like this have the tab picked up by their employer, or write it off as a business expense. Some people save for years to go to an IPMS National event. When was the last time the Nats were held in the NE....huge population centers(Boston, NYC, Philly, etc) with potential for lots of walk ins.

    Why not merge this with the thread announcing the root cause?

    modeler stereotypes

    Even within our ranks there are sterotypes...Rivet counter, Judging hoverer, guy with loud Hawaiian shirt, the self important judge, I could go on
  15. Same here as discussed elsewhere...no direct upload, no WIPs from me. I voted for Genre Specific sections....no desire to see tank builds. ;)
