MiG Alley USAF Decal Dry Run





I have started adding the Dom's Decals insignia to the 1/600th scale USAF aircraft, with a tentative trio of a couple of F-84 Twin Mustang night fighters and a lone T-6 Texan FAC. This was about all I managed to do before I began to freeze solid in the garage, so the Sabres, Thunderjets and Shooting Stars will have to wait a bit longer. The photos make it look like I'm a really sloppy painter, which isn't too far from the truth, but the splashes and over painting really can't be seen from even a short distance away (honest!). I also sorted out the MiG-15's and a second Texan FAC aircraft, as I need two of those to operate as a loose pair in MiG Alley. I'm off out to a Xmas concert now so no more decaling in an arctic garage tonight!

  1. I paint in an unheated shed too so I feel your pain with the cold.

    Nice to see the decals going on the planes.

    Cheers,

    Pete.

  2. I'd really liked to have restarted my 1/600 stuff with a friends, but with Doms Decals in hiatus there is no telling who will do suitable decals of all kinds anytime soon.... Liking yours a lot btw.

  3. It is a shame that Dom is off the radar. I have a small stockpile of decals but can see them running out at some point. There are some very small insignia in the various I 94 sheets but nowhere near the range that Dom provides.
