  1. I took my Beta cloth Apollo 11 mission patch and American flag patch to work to show everybody on Thursday. Took a picture of the Houston Post newspaper from the landing in 1969 and sent it to my friends. Such a great achievement to have witnessed and even better that my dad worked the lunar module engines for Apollo 9, 10 and 11. Cheers...Ron
  2. Wow! Nice! Good idea for the seal around the CFT's! Looking good so far...Israeli AF aircraft are so cool! Cheers...Ron
  3. Wow! That's nice! Great job on the turret removal too. I have a couple of those Monogram B-29's...had decals made to do "Dave's Dream"...the 509th bomber that dropped the bomb for Operation Crossroads. I got Col. Tibbetts autograph here at the Atomic Museum in Albuquerque. He's leaning out the window of Enola Gay before engine start. Cheers...Ron
  4. The gun nose E and sex change G are probably my two favorite versions of the Phantom! Very nice job! I do miss hearing those big J-79's turning kerosene into noise! Cheers...Ron
  5. The 117 was such a cool airplane. Really earned it's keep during Desert Storm and another great Lockheed product! Great job! Cheers...Ron
  6. Wow that's cool! Well worn...repainted dirty bird! I'm sure there is a good story about all the different color shades. Nailed it from the pictures of the actual airplane. Put it in a contest with the pictures to watch the judges heads explode! Cheers...Ron
  7. Nice "seven-two-seven" in an old scheme from when flying was fun! I crewed the 727 for awhile...going down the aft air stair you had to go left or right off the bottom step or you'd get dripped on with Skydrol...and it didn't wash out of your shirt! There was also a hatch above the airstair and you could go check the intake of number 2 engine. I've got a picture somewhere of me sitting it it with my feet hanging out. great job! Cheers...Ron
  8. Very nice! Bright and shiny was the way they were back then. Crew chief did it all! Especially like the arctic red around the wings and tail. Cheers...Ron
  9. Beautiful T-33! That paint sounds like working with the old Liqua-plate and Rub and Buff combinations from way back! Great job! Cheers...Ron
  10. That came out nice! I like the engine covers and yes the "disco" belts on the maintenance folks! I was at Altus in the C-5 program and I'd go up to Tinker and get the 552nd "ELF ONE" deployment package ready for airlift and then help get it loaded on the C-141 for the trip to Saudi Arabia. I've got that same kit on the shelf along with a 72nd KC-135A "Steam Jet" tanker to build giving gas to the E-3A. Great job! I'm sure the guy you built it for loved it...I know I would! Cheers...Ron
  11. That is a great diorama! I remember that old Army cammo scheme. I hauled several Pershing missiles to Europe in the C-5. Minus the warhead...C-5 wasn't certified for nuke airlift so the 141 guys had to haul it. Ground work, forest, roadway and overall time brings back memories that seem to be forgotten. Great job! Cheers...Ron
  12. Love the old Monogram B-17! I've built many of them over the years and yours looks fantastic! Great job! Cheers...Ron
  13. Nice! I like the larger "parts of Apollo" Cheers...Ron
  14. WOW! That is super cool! I watched Apollo 11 launch...I was 12 years old! Cheers...Ron
