    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

    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.

    Converting a 1/144 two-seater F-15 into a single-seater

    If you're using the 1/144th Revell F-15E kit, you'll also need to eliminate the bulged landing gear doors. I think the ECM fairings on the tips of the tails are different, too. Probably some other smaller stuff, but in 1/144 it's all small! Cheers

    Trade An-26 for An-24B?

    I have an Amodel 1/144 An-24B and would prefer the more-military variant, the An-26. Anyone want to trade? thx Herb herbarnold99(at)cableone.net
