You slayed the dragon. I have maybe four parts left on my Academy N and I just can't find the stomach to finish it.

LF/WTB 1/48 Hasegawa F-15 and F-18 NASA marking s

I'm looking for the Hasegawa NASA boxings of their 1/48 F-15 and F-18. All I'm interested in are the decals if you'd sell them on their own. I'll take the entire kit if necessary.

Thanks,
...
