Re: Looking for 1/18 21st Century F86 parts

Hey Rudy,

I have a F-86 that was missing one of the rear stabs and I have made a cast of the one I have .

Not sure if it is the right or left but I made a couple of extras .
You will have to alter the connecting tab and of course paint it.
Contact me if this will work.

I have sent messages to all the full build buyers and so far the continue vs payback is 50/50 . Here are a few picks of the Paint Master . https://photos.smugmug...

Re: 1/18th Scale Mi-24 Hind In Production !

I have given it much thought and the clover leaf pattern is an iconic image of the cold war .
So I will be making it.
That will take another 3-4 days to make the template, so the cold war scheme will get bumped to 3rd place in order.

So..
