    UAE F-16F Block 60

    Those are great pictures! It's amazing how far the F-16 has come from the red, white and blue one I saw flying at Edwards AFB in 1975! Who would of thought the "light weight fighter" would evolve to this heavy hitter!

    OOB RF-4B 1/48 Hasegawa

    That's a nice looking Phantom! That green tail color match looks almost perfect.

    Unreal C-5 Galaxy takeoff, gut wrenching!

    I was at Travis in the 22nd MAS from 1975 to 1980. The A model was new still and in the gray and white paint with the blue line. We had a ton of gear trouble back then but they eventually got that worked out. Then went to Altus AFB, OK in 1980 to 1989...was in the C-5 school house from 80-83 then went to the 443rd MAW. Picked up several B models new at Lockheed and we flew them to get the "bugs" worked out then deliver them to Dover and Travis. I was always amazed how big stuff we could haul in that airplane! Downed a few beers at the Brown Fox at Dover! Flew with some guys who were in the C-5 program at Charleston and then moved up to Dover. I left the C-5 program and went to Joint Special Operations Command from 1989-1993 and then went to Kadena AB, Okinawa from 1993-1996 in the MC-130P Combat Shadow...Came here to Kirtland in 1996 as the program manager loadmaster and retired in 1999 after 24 years and over 6000 flying hours. Had a great time in the "big jet" and it's sad to see those old tails that carried me all over the world being cut up in the Arizona desert. Cheers...Ron

    Unreal C-5 Galaxy takeoff, gut wrenching!

    That was a C-5A/B with the TF-39 engines! TRT Standing takeoff...made many of those in my 14 years and 3500 hours in the "big jet". The re-engined M model has a ton more thrust and would of jumped off the runway. That was cool to watch from the spectator point of view now! Cheers...Ron C-5A/B Loadmaster 1975-1989

    USS Missouri Trumpeter 1:200

    WOW! That's impressive! Your spray booth is impressive as well...could easily handle a 1/32 B-17. Cheers...Ron

    SBD-3 done

    John...Nice SBD! I read the book "Pacific Payback" about the USS Enterprise and the SBD squadrons up to the Battle of Midway. Was a fantastic book...bought a SBD-3 as well as decals for an Enterprise bird. Was amazing how they could dive...release their bomb and pull out with that massive G load and no G-suits. Great build on an airplane that took the fight back to the Japanese after Pearl Harbor. Cheers...Ron

    ZM A-1J on a stick

    Pete...Great work on the Skyraider! Put a survivor on the ground with his radio hidden in the jungle from "Charlie" and have a recording loop of the locator beacon going from his radio. Flyover to confirm location and suppress fire so the Jolly Greens can make the pickup! Then drinks on the survivor at the O-Club!
