    B-50 vs. C-97 Tail

    Bless you! It may be the only thing to get them moving...
  2. Hi Dutch,


    Watching your E-767 project with interest! If it turns out you don't use them, would you consider selling me that second set of decals? I'm following in your footsteps!




    1. Dutch


      Herb, thanks for tuning in on my project.  Yes, I will be more than delighted to sell you the spare set of decals. How does $5.50 postfree in the US sound? If you are international,  i will have to ask a little more for postage.  Kindest regards,  Dutch

    CD144016 - 1/144 KC-10 Extender

    I hope they bring out a KC-10! I know it's not anticipated, but tanker kits seem relatively popular. The Roden VC-10 is a nice example, and Minicraft's KC-135 series seems to have done well. And like Dutch notes, the Revell KC-10 is expensive and hard to get a hold of despite its issues. Also, I want a pony and world peace...

    1/32 Lockheed S-3B Viking - scratchbuilt

    Breathtaking! Read the entire build log, what a saga!

    1/144 F-4S by SK Loh

    Another extremely nice F-4 build by the talented Mr. Loh! Really a superb combination of model and base, really effective for the in-flight presentation. Thanks for sharing!

    VF-21 F-14A Operation Earnest Will

    I definitely remember the event, as I was onboard the Connie with VAQ-139 at the time. The Tomcats recovered without some AIM-7s, and there was general excitement on the flight deck they'd been fired with effect. The article you link tells the story pretty much as I remember it. Viz was awful in the NAS/GOO (as usual), no visuals on any bogies, and a C-130 apparently nearby at the same time. I heard a rumor that maybe the props on the 130 produced erroneous doppler returns and set up a bad shot, but have no idea if that's a plausible explanation. I don't think secondary confirmation was received that any F-4s had been hit. The fighter pukes would have been a lot more excited if that had happened. They weren't, and the whole event was eventually forgotten. But back to your original question... sorry, no idea on which BuNo's were involved.

    F-16A IAF Op. Opera (Revell 1:144)

    Coming together very nicely! Good to see a "small stab" F-16 subject for a change...

    Another beauty by SK Loh

    Beautiful little Phantom, and presented so effectively on a well thought out base. Awesome job, again! You rule in the jewel scale! Cheers, Herb

    test - do you see the pic?

    Having some difficulty posting photos, do folks see this shot (1/72 Lublin R.XIII)? thx Herb
  12. Interested in one of the Pit Road 1/144 PAK FA T-50 kits if still available.

    Revell E-3 mold

    Thanks Jennings, I know 707 variations and variants are a deep topic, so I was hoping someone here might know. Here's another question, did the 707-120/120B have any military variants at all? I lean that way, and if the answer is no I'll let this kit go. Cheers, Herb

    Revell E-3 mold

    So with all the recent releases from Minicraft, is the old Revell mold of the KC-135A (and E-3, I think) still worth building? Have the others passed it by in terms of accuracy? thx Herb

    Help ID this aircraft

    Wow, that's an unusual one. Looking at 7BG info on the web suggests it would maybe have been a liaison type to the unit at that time? Not part of the regular complement of bombers of that year, for sure.
