  1. I look forward to that. I'm an American Airlines 737 pilot. The AstroJet livery is my favorite, with the Twin globe TWA as a close second. Continental Golden tail and meat ball would be third. Tracy
  2. Progressing nicely! Great info on the floors... they really took a beating from everybody, both aircrews and maintenance alike. Had to chuckle a bit on your cockpit ref material images and descriptions. The narrative about the S-3B’s pilot display is inaccurate. Only the most basic symbology was displayed on it, and there was a limit on how much could be sent to it from the other crew members. No sensors could be displayed on it - It was not an MFD (multi function display)... just a basic symbology repeater. looking forward to seeing more. I have a very special Viking I need t
  3. This would have to be the version that was tested in Earth orbit with James McDivitt and Rusty Schweickart on Apollo 9. All the LEMs that landed on the moon didn’t have the touch probe on the leg with the ladder. This however, is a work of art and deserves to be in a museum. Tracy
  4. Sold on the 737-100, and definitely the 777-300ER. Gonna need American Airlines decals. Tracy
  5. I can’t give you an exact length, but they are longer than the SRS blades from the Viking. I did a Google search on the Shadow and a bunch of examples are out their to see the long and the shortened antennas. I think trimming them to half their original length will represent the fleet veteran Shadow. Tracy
  6. This will be fun to watch. A little tid bit on the Shadow image shared earlier... That was the plane in very early release after being transformed from an S-3A to an ES-3A. Those blade antenna, particularly the ones on the bottom of the wings, were shorted significantly shortly after being introduced to the fleet. The long ones were snapping off during cat shots. If I may share something that modelers don’t notice about the back seat canopies... they are clear canopies, but the inside surfaces had a light gull gray paper backing. This backing was to block out sunlight s
  7. CJ, lid you have the flap set, mind sharing a few pics? Tracy
  8. FYI. Shadows had no offensive weapons capability. I suggest a buddy store on the port side and a drop tank on the starboard. Tracy
  9. They won't make what I need. Too much on their plate... Anyone else? I need CVW-8 in '85 in which more than half the aircraft are TPS, and CVW-3 in 97-99. Tracy
  10. Who is a good outfit for making custom decals? I want specific squadrons/air wings for specific carriers for specific deployments. I.e., '85 Nimitz, and '99 Enterprise in 1/350 scale. These two deployments were my first and last cruises in my Navy career. Tracy
  11. Would love to pick your brain on your engine finishes. Nice effect! Tracy
  12. Know this plane quite well, I was in VS-22 in CAG-3 on the Kennedy during Desert Shield and Storm. Nice job! Tracy
  13. I bought the exterior set recently not knowing you were developing an interior until I read this thread. Been surfing the net for one, but there are none to be had. Glad you're tackling this on too! My OH-58 project has been put on the back burner till you have the time to release the interior too. Meanwhile back to Star Trek and remastering the 41" Excelsior. ;-) Tracy
  14. Over $300 to engine a $125 kit? Not gonna happen. Tracy
