  1. My dad (E9, USAF) told a very similar story. From β€˜65 to β€˜69 he was on the Strategic Air Command Maintenance Standardization Evaluation Team out of Offutt. They were flying from Torrejon one August in a KC-135 back to Nebraska. Dad had hundreds of hours in KC-135s as a passenger, not crew. He knew how long a normal roll was until airborne. The jet was loaded with fuel, very heavy and it was August in Spain. This time it was not getting off the ground. There’s few windows in a KC-135 fuselage and the seats near the windows were occupied by brass. Anyway, the jet was
  2. Hmmmm, invokes a semi-Shamu vibe, no? Lighter shade of gray, for sure.
  3. This. Right. Here. This is why most of my decal purchases are from Caracal. 1/72 F-4C/D/E please. Early and late E wings, I beg you.
  4. I love Euro 1 Falcons. I read Falcon drivers hated the scheme because they only wanted to be Mr. Air Force Air to Air Fightermen. πŸ˜‰
  5. My goodness, some great modeling going on. Phenomenal weathering, attention to detail
  6. Fantastic! Those rocks look like the real Styrofoam from the set! Only thing I would have done different is I would have airbrushed a weird pink sky backdrop. Because nothing says "You're not on Earth!" like a weird pink sky backdrop. Well done, my Captain.
  7. I am not saying the Minicraft 757 is perfect. But I will give them credit for making an injection version long before anyone else did. Maybe the nose is off, but I have always been happy with my NASA version courtesy of Flying Color Decals. I will get the Zvezda kit someday.
  8. Would love a 1/144 version! πŸ₯°
  9. Loved your description on how you did the exhaust stains. I have saved it for my next build.
  10. Seems like it was not a hassle-free build, but you did an excellent job on a very elegant looking fighter.
  11. Man oh man, that is some stone-cold 707 modeling going on. Well done.
  12. I assure you, Italeri is behind number 1. And to remedy number 2, they just reissued their old, old, old, old ESCI Fury after 430 years. I mean, really, the dots are easy to connect. Italeri and Cartograf are both based WHERE? πŸ˜„
