Single No. 25 – Lockheed F-104G Starfighter

Published: June 23, 2021
Book Author(s): Dariusz Karnas
Company: MMP Books

This book is as single-minded as one can be. Don’t look for a title page, a table of contents, an index, or any text for that matter. They are not to be found. It is an 8-1/4” x 11-3/4” glossy paperback with 24 pages of nothing but information and pictures of the -G model Starfighter as flown by non-US licensees, i.e., the “Single” subject..

Company: Scale Aircraft Conversions

Scale Aircraft Conversions (SAC) is a Texas based company that has been marketing resin and white metal parts for scale model aircraft for over 20 years.

I have bought about a half dozen of their metal landing gear sets in the past, all of which have turned out to be excellent replacements for the… more

Book Author(s): Richard Marmo
Company: Richard Marmo

This 50-page reference document presents a nice pictorial history of the P-38H in the Pacific theater of WWII. While all but two of the photographs are black & white, this shouldn’t be a problem for modelers trying to duplicate the color scheme since all those shown were olive drab over gray.

This e-document allows a reader to navigate from a thumbnail list at the front or scroll… more

FLEX-I-FILE #7000 "TOUCH-N-FLOW" System

Published: April 29, 2020
Company: Flex-I-File

The Flex-I-File “Touch-N-Flow” (Photo 1) is the ultimate capillary action gluing system. Nothing else I know can get cement into hard to reach spots with such accuracy. It enables a modeler to put solvent cement exactly where needed, with very little chance of missing the target and marring an outside surface.

The #7000 system is composed of three components (Photo 2): A bottle of… more
