    It is their lowest tac tape. I use it all the time and rarely have lifting issues. I stick it first to my t-shirt before applying it.

        Warthog Check out these two videos we published a few days ago. They're a good starter to the wider world of videos on this topic:

          I first saw the t-shirt trick over on one of the Flite Test build videos. One of those, "Why didn't I think of that?" kind of tricks.

          • It's been a while since I could show off anything with Callie's awesome graphics. My version of the Freewing F-14, converted to an A model and repainted in the 1970's VF-1 Wolfpack hi-vis scheme. Callie's decals came out great!

              • I just finished a repaint of the FMS 1500mm P-47D that was originally silver from a Pacific Theater replica. I used Callie's decals and they went on beautifully! I also got the nomenclature sheet and applied several that were consistent with this particular airplane, a replica of one flown in WWII in England. I'll attach a couple of the plane and pilot back in 1944

                          Thanks. My favorite fighter group from the USAAF in WWII is the famous 56th, led by Col. Hub Zemke. This plane was flown by a Lt. Albert Knafelz of upstate New York. He flew it until he finished his tour in August 1944. Unfortunately, the aircraft, flown by another pilot, suffered severe battle damage to the wing and gear, and crashlanded back at base on the first day of Operation Market Garden in Holland that September. The pilot survived, but the plane was written off and scrapped.
                          These markings are how it would have looked on D-Day and somewhat later into the summer, when upper invasion stripe markings were removed, leaving markings on the bottoms of the wings and fuselage. In this case, they decided to paint over the top stripes with olive drab paint. I preferred this look over that one, at least for now.

                            Thanks very much. I know these aircraft did get beat up some on their missions, but I have always been in favor of doing as realistic a weathering scheme on the aircraft as I can. One of the most extreme cases I came across was at a Scale Masters meet many years ago. The pilot had a beautiful P-51D, flew well, and all that. But he weathered it so much that it looked more like it had reentered the Earth's atmosphere than a realistic weathering job on it. Still, he flew it well and collected some awards for his effort, which is cool.

                              Flies great, and looks great in the air. FMS made a good P-47 Razorback. I really think this extra work was worth it, and I have learned things along the way that will help in the next project.

                                  Thanks, 406 pilot. I have some business up in Billings next month and am going to try and bring this or another plane of mine to do a little flying up there.
