Re: US Withdraws from Open Skies Treaty

"During the course of this review it has become abundantly clear that it is no longer in America's interests to remain a party to the Open Skies Treaty," one official told Reuters news agency."

Re: ETPS88

Thanks Freeman.

I thought this might be the case as I saw on G-INFO that the airframe had been scrapped.

Re: 1/32 F-4C DECALS

I managed to track down some Cutting Edge decals for my 1/48th U-2 off Ebay. Like everything else Cutting Edge they weren't cheep as they are hard to come by (for a complete set) but I did eventually find a seller in Vegas.

Good luck with your search :thumb:
