  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. Love the old Monogram B-17! I've built many of them over the years and yours looks fantastic! Great job! Cheers...Ron
  4. Nice! I like the larger "parts of Apollo" Cheers...Ron
  5. WOW! That is super cool! I watched Apollo 11 launch...I was 12 years old! Cheers...Ron
  6. T-38 has some really great lines. Has carried some really nice paint schemes over the years too! Cheers...Ron
  7. Very proud bird! Love to see them fly! Also the center of the Apollo 11 mission patch! Cheers...Ron
  8. Don't know how I missed this one! Great looking Phantom! Cheers...Ron
  9. Beautiful...captures the early days of the Pacific war! Not much on corrosion control...load er up and go find the Japanese Fleet! Great job!!! Cheers...Ron
  10. Another great Lockheed product! Nice looking models! Heard from a buddy of mine that the P-3 line has shut down at Marietta...... Cheers...Ron
  11. Some super nice space models! Can't get enough of the early space program...Mercury...Gemini and Apollo. The moon walker is super cool as well. And yes...the Phantom II...absolutely got to love that kerosene burner!! Cheers...Ron
  12. Thank you! Will mark my calendar to look for it!! Cheers...Ron
  13. Nate...so glad your boys enjoyed the movie! That's what we need...the young ones to enjoy the engineering marvel of spaceflight. An incentive to excel in school and go make a difference. I liked the start as well...Walter Cronkite talking on launch day and then the crawler taking the Saturn to PAD 39A. I liked the high altitude cameras watching it pas through "maximum dynamic pressure". Definitely have to buy it when it comes out on DVD.
  14. I finally got to go see the Apollo 11 movie! Awesome!!! Some very good film from NASA and they put the whole mission together very well. The white shirts and skinny black ties and pocket protectors made me laugh! I recognized several people...George Low, Bob Gilruth, "DEKE", Gene Kranz and several Apollo and future Shuttle astronauts. The comm links were good with some humor. If you've read anything about Apollo then even the acronyms and phrases they use between Houston and Columbia/Eagle you know what's going on. I lived in Houston from 64-69 and saw Apollo 9, 10 and 11 launch. My dad worked the engines on the LM so it was a real thrill for me to go back to 1969 and watch the mission to the moon again. Cheers...Ron
