    What do you do with your trophies?

    That is a neat solution, repurposing the plaque into another model project. AS the othe rtwo have said, I'll try it when I get a plaque. As it is, I make and donate plaques to my local military base, in particular a specific shop so that each oen leaving gets on with a special feature. It costs me about $50 per 11"x18" plaque from soup to nuts. I used to ask the guys to pass the hat, but would only get around $25-30 , so just gave up and donate them now. Maybe I should make plaque bases for my models.

    CD144016 - 1/144 KC-10 Extender

    Jonah, If their MD-11 kit is any prediction; check out the MD-11 parts review by Viking on Britmodeler. And MD-11 build log by Ridgeline on Britmodeler. And MD-11 KLM completed build by Alex1978 on Britmodeler. I can assume that we will receive a similar parts breakdown as Viking shows in his review. Alex's results are great, perhaps not fantastic, but very nice. Results may vary. R/ Dutch

    CD144016 - 1/144 KC-10 Extender

    @KursadA Apolgies for mis-reading your intent and meaning, but I like your humor. Omega Air markings are pretty spartan, all black and probably easy enough to do on my ALPS printer. No boom on their KDC-10-40, only twin drogues under the rear fusleage and the wingtip pods. So I should start with an MD-11 kit (need the engine bulge for the -40). A good freind flies their KC-707 tankers, so i will see if I can get photos of that platform the next time he is in town. R/ Dutch

    Why do builds stall?

    I'm with Bo. Life has a way of interrupting the best laid plans for most of my builds. I've had some hangar queens (8x 1/72 F-4 Phantom IIs) for 33 years now. Last worked on them in college, packed them up when I graduated and never opened the box again. I will dig them out eventually. My latest project is a 1/144 E-767 AWACS conversion, that stalled earlier this year because I put it up at the end of a modeling weekend and have been responding to numerous life issues since (business travel, car, house, family & other people). So, this upcoming weekend is my first off weekend in over two months and I had hoped to re-attack and make some significant progress, BUT! My precious wife asks me if we can go visit her mother this weekend. Her mother is a real peach and I haven't seen her in about a month, and if we don't go this weekend, it will be another three weeks before we can, so go I must! Don't get me wrong, I am not complaining, just happy to be happily married with a great mother-in-law. Modeling happens when it happens.

    Fokker F-27 and C-46

    As for C-46 color schemes, I'd have to do some digging. It seems that Draw decal and others have done several of the interesting cargo airline schemes already. Most C-46s were pretty drab during WWII. However, the postwar era featured several colorful schemes, I am sure. Just need to dig them up. I think I remember an all black SpecOps C-46 as well. There is a nice SAC C-46 model on agapemodels.com (see below).
