Here we go loop di loo! Shake it out baby! Here we go loop di lie! Bend over, let me see you shake your tail feather (bis) Come on, let me see you shake your tail feather (bis) So - talking of Tail Feathers... Tail fins have been primed with Halfords grey plastic primer and laid over a blown up scale drawing from priginal Lockheed plans. Dimensions cross checked and shape corroberated against photo's. The moulded fins are too short - luckily by about the thicknes of the tailplane. You can see the fin being split in two where it will go either side of the tailplane - along with the cut-out rudders. Here's one half after surgery. A lot of cleaning up and re-shaping will be needed... Here's the tailplane - smoothed - shaped/corrected - and under multiple coats of primer... Have fun... Iain
Some pictures from the Combat Air Museum at Forbes Field, Topeka, Kansas. A collection of aircraft, mostly from the cold war era. One of the notable displays is a Lockheed EC-121T-LO Warning Star (FAA Reg. Number N4257U). These pictures were taken in 2006. The interior has an interesting choice of colors.
Hello and good day to you all. At first, for all the large scale plane lovers happy newyear. After i saw the build of Ian his Early Warning Star i tought:"Wow, this is big and this is SUPER". So i order a Connie at Tigermodels. Almost a year now it was parked on a shelf in my hobbyroom. I think it is time to make a little start now. The idea is to build a EC-121R Batcat. A Connie that flew during the Vietnam war. The plane flew as a relay aircraft over the Ho Chi Minh Trail. A lot of sensors were dropped on the trail. The sensors send its signal to the Batcat. They pass the signal true to a base. This was a small part of operation Igloo White. My Batcat will be the famous Da Nang Glider. Plane number 67-21487. This plane had it's four prop's feathterd during the flight. The plane made a emergency landing on Da Nang airbase. So here are some pics. A Batcat over the trail http:// A pic. in one of the many books i have about the Connie http:// The body finaly on the workbench http:// The main body filled with foam. http:// So this is it for now.
