I'm glad Professor Steve gave us a lot of retouching lessons, since the textbook was kinda spotty on the subject.

Men of War 2.0
The bad guys will be two pairs of MiGs (FLOGGERs and FULCRUMs); the kits are in the mail. Getting NKAF decals was another problem. I didn't mind shelling out over ten bucks (including shipping) for a set of 1/48 scale NKAF roundels, but for the 1/72 scale MiG-23, I had to settle for Yugoslavian roundels and hope no one looks too closely. Y'all won't, right? I'll have Bob paint each without identifying bort numbers so one plane can double as his own wing man (so I only needed to buy one of each type).
As far as paint schemes go, the NKAF doesn't show up at western air shows, so I had to resort to Google and Bing Maps to do a little aerial recon for me. Looks like they're still using the bare aluminum scheme they used during the Korean War, which simplifies things greatly.
Now to set up my spare room as a green-screen studio and start experimenting.
Update: Aw, crap, I got outbid on the Yugo decals anyway! It was actually just as easy to buy a 1/72 scale MiG-15 and hoark the decals from the kit.

A Change of Pace
But not that of a Paladin. Those are for needling to distraction.

Finally powered up my new Canon 7D and took a few stills. It won't replace my Power Shot as my walk-around camera or my Pentax K100D as my primary Stills camera; I'm saving the 7D as my new movie camera.
Guess I better start buckling down and reading the manual.
