    I believe I read years ago that Grumman F6F Hellcats each came from the factory with six Japanese flag Kill decal/stickers as a morale booster.this was an idea originated by the Grumman team.
    Obviously, a carrier would accumulate a stock of stickers and they would be available and used instead of hand painting kill markings. I have read where modelers wondered why the kill markings seemed so consistent.

    I saw a picture of a Kingfisher model having both red outline and plain Star and Bar. Is this at all possible?

    For those of you interested in USAAF tactical markings you might
    want to check your local library on these books from Schiffer Publishing

    I read that in PTO several P-40Ks and P400s were painted coral brown. Everthing on the island was painted coral by the Engrs. Does anyone know if this is the same as Desert Pink used on the B-24s and Spitfires or more of a Desert Sand? I found a P-40 and a P-400 in the discount bin and was thinking of making one.

    I think the coral brown was a kind of earth-brown with the sand one.I have found these somewhere in the net.So maybe it can help.

    I knew you would have something. I have always wanted to make a model of Texas Longhorn. I am very color blind. What are the tiles below the profile? I like the first tile on the top left.
