    Some improvements and some new work.

    Pilot office complete with seat, seat belts and control stick. For this item I used the nice piece from AMS RESIN and paper belts from RB Production

    Received today, very fast service direct from Airscale.
    They are specific for early Allied Jet Fighters, including my F-84G

    Nice buy Alberto. I have some in both 1/8th and 1/32nd scales, but haven't used them yet. They look the part, and I'm interested to see how they perform.

    Hello ,
    first in answer to Terry, those Airscale decal are very good, very well designed an printed.
    The only problem in my case was that they are a bit too large for the AMS resin dashboard.
    So I only used some of them, the remaining coming from the kit decals. In both cases I had to cut them from the relevant sheets using a punch and die tool.
    Here following are some pictures.
