    Monogram 1/48 B-24J in Bare Metal Foil

    Wow...that's an impressive B-24. Did you rivet it after the foil or before? Looks very real and the rivet lines really bring it out! I have a J and a D model B-24 in 48th and I hope they look that good. Cheers...Ron

    Roden C-141 w/Caracal decals

    The gray/white with the blue cheat line was my favorite paint on the C-5A/C-141A. I never crewed the 141 but I've got some "dead head" time on them and loaded/unloaded lots of them when I was in the MAC/ALCE. I liked hearing those TF-33's spool up for takeoff and the "wooof" compressor stall every once in awhile when the thrust reverse buckets would open. I've heard several POW's being repatriated in Hanoi say " that was the prettiest I'd ever seen" when that gray and white A model C-141 taxied up! Was sad to see them being cut up in the boneyard...now along with my old C-5's too. Great job on a true workhorse! She's gone from the skies but not from old airlifter's hearts. Cheers....Ron C-5A/B, C-130E, MC-130P

    Any 1/32nd Scale Korean War F-51 Decals Out There?

    You could probably piece it together...red bars to the national insignia and the "U.S. AIR FORCE" on the tail from a Korean War jet sheet and buzz numbers from a number/letter sheet. Korean F-51's were pretty cool! Cheers....Ron

    DC-130A VX-30...1/48

    I don't know where that is. It's the 711th SOS by then. They were the AFRES squadron out of Duke Field, FL. Being a non Fulton nose MC it used to belong to the 1st SOS at Kadena way back.

    DC-130A VX-30...1/48

    Cool work so far! In that picture of the drones hanging on the pylons in the background is a MC-130E Combat Talon! Sorry...being an MC guy had to say something!

    1/24 GEMINI 9A part 2

    Wow! Your Gemini is really coming along nice! I built several of them in the 60's when it first came out. My dad was with NASA at Houston at the time. I bought the re-issue and the upgrade set as well.

    The Incredible 1/32 Tamiya Mossie

    WOW! That is very detailed for box stock. It just amazes me that it was built out of wood! I guess part of it periodic maintenance would be a termite inspection?

    1/48 HobbyBoss FB-111A

    That turned out real nice. Everybody says the kit is "unbuildable" but yours is another that shows that it can be built into a nice Aardvark. I have the HB F-111A and want to build it up as a early Edwards AFB test bird in gray over white. The squadron canopy does dress it up...I bought one for mine as well. Cheers...Ron

    Trinity site

    Tomorrow is the 73rd anniversary of the atomic bomb detonation at Trinity Site. Been down there a couple of times when it's open. An eerie place knowing what happened there.

    Apollo 11 launch

    Tomorrow is the 49th anniversary of the launch of Apollo 11 to the moon landing! My how time goes by. I was standing on the beach and watched it go. My dad worked on LM-5...the decent stage is still sitting there! Need to get going on my 72nd scale Saturn V now that there are aftermarket parts to make it better!

    I thought that was it but was thinking someone would say..."the BUFF has 2 engines shut down" LOL!
