Default New Subject Suggestions

Hi everyone, with the RAAF P3 Orion markings just about wrapped up, and the F2H Banshee markings on hold until the kit is closer to release, I'm looking for suggestions for the next set(s) of markings.
I get asked occasionally about civilian airliner markings. These can not be done without a license from the airline and so far, none that I've contacted are at all interested in licensing their marks and logos. So no airliner markings anytime soon.

As well, I get asked a lot about the CF-18 Demos. I would LOVE to do those. However there's a lot of unfortunate behind the scenes politics at play with those and so they're likely not going to get done until that is set aside.

I'm also interested in doing some more international stuff. Popular and well known markings such as the classic VF-84 Jolly Rogers Tomcats, or maybe some RNZAF Corsairs. I have some interesting artwork done for IIAF Phantoms that I think would be popular (I think all the current decals for these scheme are ALPS printed). And there's an interesting story behind the set I've chosen.

In terms of Canadian stuff, I have the artwork finished for a very large and comprehensive set of CF-104 markings. Complete with 100% stencil and warning markings. The 1:32 set has something around 100 decals in total. Some helicopters might be interesting. Red, white, blue Labradors maybe?

But like I said, at this point, I'm open to suggestions.

thanks
David

How about some US Navy P-3's. It would be nice to see some Orion love.

Ohhh...good one!

Dave in addition to my P-3 suggestions over on ARC, some up to date USN P-3s would be sellers I think.

Unless you're bored of doing P-3s/CP-140s all together.

Actually, USN P3's isn't a bad idea. Just need to pick a unit.

How about Norwegian P-3Bs in the overall Dark Sea Grey scheme and current P-3Cs? They carry a lot of stencilling, and you've probably got all that in your electronic Library from previous P-3 sheets?

While I'm sure more F-4 decals are always welcome, Hi Decal has released a sheet or two with Iranian F-4s on em.

How about a comprehensive selection of RCAF Lancasters? There is only a random selection of RCAF decals out there and I'm fairly sure there are some squadrons that have never been done. With the upcoming Airfix Mk II there could be an opportunity there.

Another purely parochial choice would be 2nd Air Commando P-51's. Just a couple sets of unit markings (black lightning bolts/stripes/tail markings) and a selection of nose art/plane in group numbers. I'll even offer you some research material.

That's a good suggestion from Jens. Odd that Vingtor never released a sheet of those.

There are some other 'forgotten' P-3 users as well that you could do.

Well, there are only so many hours in a day... Nils did print some decals for my P-3C that I placed in the display case at the air museum at Gardermoen back in 2004 or so, but as those markings are black, that was easy to do on a laser printer. The roundels came from a sheet of Flying Colours (?) decals and the stencilling from the kit which was the first release P-3C kit from Hasegawa.

Iran would also be an interesting candidate for a P-3 given their attractive colour scheme.

For the USN P3 I have pretty much settled on a sheet with options for the the VP-94 Crawfishers or the VP-92 Minutemen. I need a bit more research materials for the VP-92 scheme but both seem straightforward and can fit into the same basic template I have for the Orion.

I'm also looking at the Argentina schemes.

thanks
David
