    C-46 1/72 Williams Brothers

    Maybe, with luck, the current owners of Williams Brothers will re-release the kit with better markings, like what they did with the B-10 kit.

    Does this look lkie a 1/72 C-130 to you?

    Well, unless you named your pet "Allison".....

    What are your top 5 dream model kits?

    Are you into 1/72? Have you seen this one?
  5. Johnopfor

    so what's most popular models these days?

    In 1/72 scale, those AMK Kfir kits vanished like a fart in the wind after they were released. You can't find any more on Ebay for less than $50, they first sold for about $20.
  6. I mostly build 1/72 aircraft, but I have done some 1/35 armor and 1/700 warships Genre: Mostly post WWII third world air forces and small wars, US ANG aircraft. Favorite Manufacturer: I don't have a preferred manufacturer, they've all come out with some good kits, and some real dogs. I look for best (list your kit here) in scale.

    Offutt Naval Base?

    I'm sure it's OK, being not too far from the gate off of Capehart Rd, which is still above water. Here is a satellite image of Offutt.... The airshow that was scheduled for later on this summer has been cancelled.

    Offutt Naval Base?

    This situation is a combination of things that came together at once. We already had an much above average snowfall, below normal temperatures that kept the ground frozen, ice formations along most of the rivers in Nebraska including the Elkhorn that already started back-ups (they actually considered using dynamite to break up the ice if the situation got worse), a couple of blizzards in central Nebraska, then followed by a rapid increase of temperatures and a lot of rainfall in Eastern Nebraska and Western Iowa within a two day period....on a ground that was already frozen and saturated......yeah, this flood has broken records all over the state. Even the floods of 2011 wasn't this bad. BTW, those underground facilities and the headquarters buildings are built on the higher ground on the west side of the base, they weren't in danger of flooding.

    Offutt Naval Base?

    According to base officials, the former SAC Headquarters, the new STRATCOM building and all of the underground bunkers and facilities haven't been affected.

    Offutt Naval Base?

    Well, not yet, but the flooding here in Eastern Nebraska and Western Iowa has caused a lot of damage..... https://www.omaha.com/news/military/air-force-gives-up-fight-to-stop-water-at-offutt/article_631f9b34-5271-50e8-b5eb-19f488daaf32.html?fbclid=IwAR0-2zkaxDgAXo8kX0E-FCWv1cn22UZcZJQOJvRIwRDaOy8lyXVBtuEVsec Some of the planes have been sent to Lincoln, NE to continue operations, most of the flooding has been confined to the SE part of the base, including the runways.
