Hi Andy

I'm afraid my trusty spellchecker doesn't work with the latest version of Firefox - so it's mea culpa if anything slipped past my Mk. 1 eyeballs.

All the best

Great little history lesson. A very nice feature.

The Alclad paint really works. You did a fantastic job on the bare metal finish.

Thanks for sharing - I am looking forward to the next part

Thanks guys. I enjoyed writing it as I learnt a fair bit as well.
Part 2 is in the process of being written at the moment.

Andy,

I really liked the model depicting the 79th TFS F-100. You did a splendid job and interestingly, I am working on pretty much the same model. I have a uncle who served in the 79th in the 50's and actually flew a F-100D "FW-012" out of RAF Bentwaters! I would like to ask you how you got the yellow decals? or was that paint? I am using the same Monogram kit and am wondering if there is a good markings solution for my aircraft. Any help would be appreciated. If you would want to chat off line about this, you can email me at kclauson1@hotmail.com

Kim.
Andy has had major computer problems recently. I spoke to him on the phone this evening and he's hopefully going to back online next week and will contact you then.
All the best,
Nige

Quick! Everyone! Hide!

No, seriously, it will be fantastic to have Andy back! He has been sorely missed.

All the best
