Re: What was the other site with all the paint configurations and FS numbers for aircraft?
You probably mean this: http://cybermodeler.com/
Again, this is the home page. To find what you're after, select "Subject & Color Refs." There are then several topics. The one I originally posted here was just the aircraft reference not the home page, etc., so that is likely what you are thinking of. So, select "Aircraft." The site has expanded and changed some since what I first posted way back. Used to be A) far fewer aircraft, and B) when you picked a plane, it popped straight to the color guide. Now, you pick a plane, and it shows you every topic it has for that subject...kits, etc. So, you must hunt for the color guide option, but it is there. So, hit that. Should see what you want.
For example, here is the F-35 page: https://www.cybermodeler.com/aircraft/f-35/f-35_all.shtml
See how cluttered it is? See in blue the "Colors and Markings" topic? See in black below that "F-35B (USMC)" and "F-35C (USN)" bars? Hit the black bar labeled what you want. "F-35B" gets you this: https://www.cybermodeler.com/aircraft/f-35/f-35b_profile01.shtml
Laptop died long ago, lost all the sites you recommended but that one with FS#s for aircraft was great.
Chris, those of us who both build the occasional US carrier model, and have been on this site a long time know of, and have bookmarked, this site: http://gonavy.jp/
That is the home page. Honestly, I have never explored the entire site. I go straight to the "Carrier Air Wings" section, then "Aircraft Carrier Deployment." Pick a carrier. You get a complete history of what it carried. I can't vouch for the accuracy of the WWII vessels (though I suspect it is probably pretty good) but for the current and recent ships it is great. It is kept well updated, too. Has the latest Vinson deployment with F-35 (which happens to square with a newspaper article on exactly the topic which a friend linked me to only days ago.)
So, if you've an interest in US naval aviation, and/or want to stay current with the subject, bookmark this one.
