  1. I agree...love those old Monogram kits! Built one way, way back. Bought another to build then the Great Wall P-61 came out. You did a great job on yours and you seem to have got the glass to fit ok as well. And yes...those old Shep Paine diorama sheets were so cool! I still have several of them from Monograms big bomber kits. Cheers...Ron
  2. Great looking orbiter! I had read a build where the builder used cloth medical tape for the blankets. They looked pretty good. I have a 72nd orbiter stack with the ET and SRB's and some shapeways upgrade parts. Put it with my 72nd Saturn V and 1B. I'll be watching your progress! Cheers...Ron
  3. Don't forget the bunks on the back wall of fuselage station 245! And the SKE dome on top the fuselage. I liked flying the E model and the MC-130 too! Cheers...Ron
  4. That is awesome! Looks very real! I have an Airfix 24th scale Stuka to build and will use yours for inspiration! Cheers...Ron
  5. Just ordered the engine nozzle's and covers for the SR-71! My kit should be here tuesday! Cheers...Ron
  6. I liked the JAWS paint on the A-10. Yours is awesome looking! Great job! Cheers...Ron
  7. That's a good lookin Weasel! Even has the center wing stiffener too! Cheers...Ron
  8. Edwards AFB flight test Phantom! Cheers...Ron
  9. That is awesome! As said by Jack King....the voice of Apollo Launch Control! Cheers...Ron
  10. The A-10 is an awesome airplane! I watched them work over old tanks on the range at Ft. Hood before the "slick" C-130's came across the drop zone...yes it was a exercise but still pretty impressive. Later when I was a MC-130 loadmaster the A-10 guys would fly with us for protection and it was cool to watch them scissoring across the top of us going to the drop zone. They were with us to suppress threats ahead of and around us. During Desert Storm Gen Horner's son was an A-10 pilot (a captain at the time) out of Woodbridge, England so I bet he was just a bit concerned
  11. I have the "A" model ordered...White over gray Edwards AFB flight test bird or a Nellis SEA cammo bird....haven't decided yet! Cheers...Ron
  12. A Clark AB Phantom!!! I remember seeing them (E and G) fly from there. Most of them had sharks mouths though! Awesome job..... Cheers...Ron
  13. Those are awesome! My two favorite Tomcat squadrons too! Cheers...Ron
  14. There was nothing like standing on the beach and watching a big Saturn V go! Saw three of them...Apollo 9, 10 and 11! Thanks dad! Great work so far! Cheers...Ron
  15. That would be Sgt John Levitow...loadmaster Medal of Honor wearer. He was rehabed and flew C-141A's at Norton AFB. Later he was discharged. I met him at Travis AFB when he came through to see another loadmaster that was in the 4th SOS with him and was at the time fling with me in the C-5A Galaxy. He had shrapnel wounds in his legs. The parachute flare was smoking from the shell hit and he tossed it out the door and it ignited going under the tail of the aircraft. Cheers...Ron
