    1/144 RC-135E Rivet Amber

    Doing the AMT 1/72 RC-135V. The wing droop WILL be resolved....but it's a serious pain. Whoever was in charge of the wing assembly did a ridiculously piss-poor job of engineering. The whole assembly is off. BUT!!….I'm very close to resolving this thing. Will post some pics when done. All in all it's an awesome model! Just parts of it were engineered very poorly. What an amazing subject!

    Yes...it struck me as an OOOPPS! moment for Model Collect also. If it's not....then I cannot fathom who in the he- - thought that a flying pose would market well with modelers. Especially after the AMT debacle several years ago. Infuriating. I hate to disagree but BUFF wings droop naturally with no fuel or weapons. They're designed that way. It's just that the wingtip gear do not touch when not fully loaded. I worked on B-52G's and B-52H's in the USAF. KC-135's also. Sheet metal. The wings droop naturally for better stability and greater payloads. Same with the C-5...C-141...C-17....An-124...and other heavy lift military aircraft.

    I heard from MC on Facebook. They said they are fixing the flying wing problem. They said the wings were not originally designed in CAD to be in flight mode. Good to know....keeping my fingers crossed...

    You would think that with all of the frustration over the AMT offering and the "flying pose" wings...that ModelCollect would not even THINK about offering wings in the flying pose. If they don't offer an alternative wing assembly or something.....I'm out. I refuse to pay over $100.00 for such poor workmanship and marketing. Not to mention the nose and antennas......

    1/48 Revell HH-53C Jolly Green Giant

    Looks great! Dito on the sanding marks. I have one that took me 5 years to finish...LOL!.....among 10 other projects. I'll post pics sometime. Really....not a bad model at all. LOVE Revell stuff....
  14. Looked at the B-36. VERY Impressive. But even if I was independently wealthy I wouldn't spend $600.00 on a plastic model. In fact....that's why I've stayed out of RC. One crash and there goes a serious car load of $$$$. Plus...where would I put it? I'm MORE than fine for paying a $100.00 + for a well engineered 72nd BUFF. In fact....I just started on the Monovell BUFF D. It ain't that bad! Building it now.
  15. Hey....I'm good with the 72nd offerings from AMT, Italeri or Model Collect. In fact....I'm waiting oooo so patiently for the Model Collect BUFF H.
