+1 on Callie

Most of her jobs cost about the same, I have received quotes from many graphic vendors and have always gone back and just used Callie, she is fast, does custom work. +1 on Callie.

Pro Mark wants $400 to $600 dollars to do the graphics for this plane!! I had them do the graphics for my 1/5 P-51 and they did a really nice job, but I paid $350 for them.

I asked Callie for a price to do the whole F-18 project and she said $40 bucks shipped!!!!
I have to pay her more than that... I can't see how that would even cover the materials and shipping. So if your looking for graphics she is the go to person as far as I'm concerned... I have sent her over all the pictures and two bobs decals to blow up and have something to work with

I have only passed through Tehachapi on the way to Las Vegas but it's a neat little town perched at 4000 ft. There was snow on the surrounding hills.

Can't wait see Brent go to town on her I know it's going to be great!
Very nice A4

Callie is THE BEST!!!!!

Her work is very detailed and good, she is fast and her prices are the best. I once told here she wasn't charging me enough and that she should charge me more on a PCM L1011 with 90+ windows, doors and all the other details. She responded that her price she quoted me was good.

If you haven't used her you should give her a try. You send her custom art work or show her a picture of the plane you want decals for and give her the scale and voila she makes it happen.

I'll tell you another good story about her decals. I didn't like the lack of quality of the SAPAC 100mm BAE Hawk decals so I sent them to her and asked that she duplicate the decal set. Well on the top of the inlets SACAP had these decals for the inlet louvers that were black outlines with a white background. I assumed that was the way they should be. When I get the decals back from Callie she duplicated those but also, on her own, put another set in there with a red background that matched the red paint color of the plane. That was the way they were supposed to be.

I just can't say enough good things about her work.

Its always good to see friends helping friends.
I have ended up painting a few planes for friends, including a Yellow Aircraft P-47 and F-4 for my buddy Bobby.

Really looking forward to seeing this all finished up

Looks like he likes the Israeli camouflage.

Hi Brent, I noticed you don't have a squadron on that tail, the 102nd fighter squadron (Flying Tigers) is the most famous A4 squadron in the IAF.

Sweet man... can't wait to see it! I really like the EZE Coat. The cool part is with all the testing I did on weights the EZE coat is super light!

My test panel gained .50 oz with a piece of monokote on it cut to fit.... I peeled it off and glassed it with EZE coat and .5 cloth (one seal coat, lay glass with a coat and a final coat) primed it and sanded off. It gained .35 oz.... so I was lighter than monokote before the paint.

here is a link, but it can be bought at tower or horizon: http://www.deluxematerials.com/products_building.html

I agree A/S there is something else in it that WBU, it's thicker also

Hey Ron, I am one of the best and fastest painters around, I just never bragged about it. Howewver, I am mostly color blind, too bad Billy O'Donnell found out the hard way. He had me paint his car, a classic MG.

The deal was, paint it blue (dumb me, it should have been British Racing Green). I painted it what I thought was blue. When Billy picked it up he discovered my color blindness problem, the car came out Purple with a big run down the driver's door. Could have been worse, could have been Pink, it all looks the same to me. I painted my mother's Buick Green, it came out real good considering that I painted the chrome bumpers the same color. See, I have always been way ahead of my time when it comes to imagination.

So Ron, Brent has contracted me to help him with the colors and the paint, that should make you feel real comfortable knowing that the paint work will be perfect. Try not to loose any sleep.
