  1. "CALL THE GRAVEL PIT FOR SEQUENCING" and "WHATEVER YOU DO DON'T TURN BACK ONTO THE RUNWAY" and "THERE IS NO WAY I'M GIVING WEATHER ON THIS FREQUENCY" are some ATC calls i can remember from a recording taken some time in the zeventies..........
  2. Holy cow, this isn't good, to say the least, hope everyone and everything can escape it in time. I still have this T-shirt from years ago, saying I SURVIVED OSHKOSH, and next to it a "list" of weather related anomalies........but this is for real, take care everybody.......
  3. Awesome Nic, i love profiles, good show, btw that Mirage 5, was it stationed at Bierset in the past? salut, Jack
  4. Ok.....here's another one, which i started years ago gathering data on, in order to scratchbuild: 1/32 Lockheed P2V Neptune............would not be any larger than a "full grown Lancaster......."..........so.........
  5. "A room with a view" for sure............
  6. It's a "tad" more realistic than what was proposed as the ultimate Iranian super dooper stealthy attack future "8th"generation fighter......yeah right......
  7. Have to cancel (again....) this year, you all have a very good time at Oshkosh, lets see some pictures lateron, ok?
  8. Or......spending years and years away from the bench (ouch!!) like yours truly..... Anyhow enjoy this wonderful site Kenneth, you have been warned.....
  9. I've visited the museum almost "a century ago", but never got to see all of these goodies devided between different hangar/places, just missed the time and insight of what the Dayton museum is all about, and i'm longing to go back some time (maybe a bucket list??) to just enjoy the aviation heritage that is displayed ........... but the same goes for the naval aviation museum in Pensacola, which i visited as well but which i would do once more with every intent to "breath" aviation......ok call me nuts, but that's just the way it is.........
  10. Experience says; between the "howling" 104, and the "high pitched" F16, this newest asset in the overhead pattern is indeed sometimes "ear piercing".....and that's the A version!
  11. Well your building history is repeating itself again, just out of this world, fantastic result, i'm still amazed on how you get to get this fabulous painting finish done, maybe you explained it already in the past, but in that case give me a hint were to find it in a thread. Bardzo dobzre Jack
  12. Yep that's it, great mistery picture Nic, and now we are ready for a 32scale Su34..........
  13. Talking "C" version, i could not see if this particular version also has larger tailplanes besides larger wings?
  14. I know the F35 project is controversial in real time AND surely in 1/32 modelling terms, but then again, either way the concept was developed, tested, implemented and in use at this moment, but like modelling this "strange" aircraft is more or less a "must" to myself, the way it "unfolds" itself when in hovering mode, should be very appealing to have it displayed as a model...........how about it Italeri.........any chance the VTOL version will ever see the light of day??????
