Thanks Paul,


     When I saw this GB posted I was overcome with excitement as I had several models to choose from and SEA Camo to boot.


     This was my excuse to build my EF-105F and add to my Wild Weasel builds in 32nd scale. Then the model GODS moved in and after


      Damn near loosing my mind, I ended up with 3 builds,  No 2 seater and no SEA CAMO.   The model GODS put me on a new path


      and I came across  a way to get in touch with Col. Vic Vizcarra, the artist and pilot of an F-105D named Pussy Galore. Had to examine


     the name and artwork for the GB, and after a confer with our Fearless Leader, he said as long as it was "Historically Accurate" helped alleviate


    any reservations I may have had.


      I have had the pleasure to correspond with a lot of GREAT PEOPLE and tried to help with some extra parts or reference material someone needed.


     Paul and Teresa are Really GREAT PEOPLE and have become friends.  We moved quite a bit of plastic between La. and Or. and has been fun.


     This was a GB that Paul started talking about  more than a month before it kicked off and past a lot of information back and forth. I made some resin


     parts for the first time and had a great surprise from Harold with his beautiful Standard ARM missiles, and all I had to do was send him a puny Trumpeter


     missile.   The GREAT SUPPORT from everyone in this GB was tremendous, and sure helped me over a few humps as time went on.


     To all who participated, finished or not  Thank You for the RIDE.  A special THANKS to Paul and Teresa for keeping the top on the glue.


       We'll have to do this again sometime.


       watch'in you B)

Yes, this was great fun..., I still hear my wife calling me to clear the table to dish dinner, because i did a lot of work "above" in daylight.
I'm a bit sad about not completing my third build, the Crusader, but the Intruder and the Thud were so much fun.
Thank's a lot and all the best to all of you...
And i'm still working on my Crusader...,

At least I managed to finish the A-6!  The Bearcat and F-104 are still there in the "to do" pile, but no matter!


It's all good and this build was outstanding and fun to watch.

this group build motivated me to build a few large planes, which until I got started really put me off. Thank you for organizing everything, and getting this done! Cheers to you mate!
