I figured my first proper post had better be a good one, so here goes. For reasons I haven't figured out myself I have took it upon myself to try and build at least one of every type of aircraft used by the IAF all in 72 scale (considering the space this is going to take up, 144 may have been a better idea). This is proving to be a monumental pain in the proverbial due to more reasons than can be counted but mainly due to me having no clear sense of direction. Do I start in 1948 with an avia s-199, spitfire or a p-51?, if so what colour scheme? or do i start in the now with a f-16/f-15?. I had no idea, so I decided to have a look at what kits I had squirreled away and see if any matched to what the Israelis have used or are still are using. Well I found a spitfire MkIX a P-51D and a B17 so a nice easy start you'd think. Oh no nothings ever that easy with me, sure enough there sat a Revell MH-53J Pave-low III kit that for some reason has been pleading to be built for a few years now but for many reasons I'd left well alone (I'm not even sure why I purchased this kit other than it was on sale for £6.99 instead of 14 quid). So now i shall attempt to get to the crux of my problem and the few questions that I require assistance with. The Israelis as far as i can tell have never operated the pave-low but do operate the CH-53 Super stallion which is a member of the same family (according to wikipedia anyway?!?!) a look at the kit makes me think i can build a stallion out of it but my questions are. Is there a better alternative? Is it possible to get decals for this? Does anyone have any decent reference material or know where I can purchase such material? and last but not least why don't I stop being an awkward git and just build the spitfire? If you've actual read through all that and are unable to help I would like to apologise for the loss of the 10 mins of your life you've lost and will never get back, if on the other hand you can help me in any way, shape or form it will be much appriciated.
