  1. Probably my favorite Japanese airplane in my favorite paint! Did you free hand the mottling or use a mask? Great job! Cheers...Ron
  2. Oh wow! That looks awesome! IDF armor is so cool and you definitely nailed it. The anti skid solution is very cool as well! Cheers...Ron
  3. A real B-17 was built with overlapped aluminum and riveted. So actually leaving the raised lines is more accurate! Great job so far! Cheers...Ron
  4. 1984? You should have one of those guys at the bus stop looking at the sky watching a 4 ship A-10 formation rolling in! Soviet armor for some reason attracts depleted uranium 30mm rounds. All joking aside...great job so far! Cheers...Ron
  5. You just can't go wrong with a Century Series jet! And yes Air Defense Command jets were super clean...especially if they belonged to a Guard unit! Great job...even if the decals gave you grief it still looks very good! Cheers...Ron
  6. Beautiful! The F-4E just looks mean in the Israeli AF paint! Was the back bone of the IAF for a lot of years! Great paint and weathering and the standard "unusual" IAF weapons load. Cheers...Ron
  7. Wow man! That's absolutely fabulous! I'm surprised he's not wearing the green canvas sided jungle boots like everybody else did!
  8. The tail section looks really good! Cheers...Ron
  9. WOW! Gotta love US aircraft in IDF colors! Beautiful Skyhawk! Cheers...Ron
  10. Wow! I didn't think Radio Shack was around anymore! My dad loved that place! Cheers...Ron
  11. I hear ya! I have the B-17F and B-25J Strafer...and a bunch of 32nd F-4's to build! Have to buy a house that has a taxi way in the back off the attached airplane hanger..... Something about the D with that greenhouse nose is just cool! If I buy one it will be a black "carpetbagger"! Cheers...Ron
  12. Beautiful MIG-23! The Soviet answer to the F-111. I sat in the MIG-23 at Nellis AFB and could only think about the history of that airplane. A very important piece of the "cold war" between two countries wanting to be "top dog" Cheers...Ron
  13. Very cool! 2 guys I flew C-5's with after the war were loadmasters on AC-47's in the 4th SOS in South Vietnam. Both flew with John Levitow who I met when he came to Travis AFB.
  14. The 117 was such a cool airplane at the time. A "Data Masked" special project airplane flown in the dark but when it was revealed it earned it's keep in the skies over Iraq during Desert Storm. Love Australia...been to Townsville, Perth, Meekathera (spelling) , all over the Outback and flown by Ayers Rock. Was stationed at Kadena AB, Okinawa and we'd bring the MC-130 down and fly and work with the Australian SAS. Had our oxygen serviced at RAAF base in Richmond and they "zapped" our airplane with a orange Roo! Was cool! Dang....now I want a Castlemain XXXX or a Strongbow Apple Ale.... Cheers...Ron
  15. Wow...this build is getting complicated! You're going to need an electrical engineering degree to run the wiring! And the pilot needs his engineering degree to fly it! Cheers...Ron
