  1. So did I! Or my son's, to be precise...

    50 years Apollo 8

    Been reading a lot about the program lately. Dug up all my books about the subject. So, although I think I know "everything", it still feels surreal so many years has passed. And we never went back.

    1/48 Bandai Star Wars Snowspeeder

    Awesome! I really like it! Perfect job with the weathering.

    CD144017 - 1/144 C-17 Globemaster III

    Oh, you're quite wrong, sir. The planes might be based in Hungary, but since they are operated and paid also by several European nations - including Finland - that's the only scheme I'm interested in. Okay I might have a more special connection with this unit since I've visited the base, have got some unit related memorabilia and even the Revell kit I have is a gift from a guy who was working there as an officer. 1/144 is not my favourite scale, nor C-17 my favourite cargo plane, but if I'll ever get to actually build this kit, it will be with Heavy Airlift Wing markings.

    Grumman F-14A Tomcat - dio/ update 14/01/2019

    Looking good! Shame about the ear infection. It really sucks. Don't ask me how I know, but I hope she's already better.

    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    I too got bored a long time ago. Just way too little substance.

    1/18th scale JSI F-14B Tomcat conversion

    Most impressive! I too have followed this from time to time, but the end result really succeeded to blow my mind! Would have needed a banana for scale although even without it I can imagine it's enormous size. 🍌
  9. She was not only the first Hornet pilot in the FinAF, but also the highest ranking female officer in our armed forces. Now she's the commander of the Fighter Squadron 31, known for its famous lynx emblem that once sported the tails of MiG-21bis. Way to go, Inka! https://yle.fi/uutiset/osasto/news/finnish_air_force_names_first_woman_as_fighter_squadron_commander/10519022

    Have a seat, a stick and enjoy the ride

    Meng's F-106 is certainly one of them.

    US B-1 Lancer flight and afterburner.

    Nice! Where is this AB, certainly not in the US?

    I'm not sure if I experienced a similar problem two weeks ago but it certainly seems so. The SAL cost was something astronomical - it really was several times bigger than my order! I don't know if there's a malfunction or something, but after I had tried it two or three times and the result was always the same, I gave up. I could have contacted them but I really didn't feel I could stand all the hassle. I ordered from 1999 (Hobbysearch).

    MiG-25 RBT in 72nd scale

    I'm looking forward to seeing further insights! I know what you mean, Gabor. These kind of posts are the essence of this forum.
