    CD48159 - 1/48 Air National Guard F-84F

    The term you're looking for is "Old School Cool". Rick L.

    Do you have a higher resolution scan?

    Obscure question re F-80C markings

    I wonder if the yellow on the horizontals is reflection of the vertical. Rick L.

    CD48158 - 1/48 F-18 Hornet - The Early Years

    Definitely interested in the early counter shaded camo scheme, and prototype blue/gold markings. Good idea. Prefer 1/48 as I have a few of the Hasegawa legacy Hornets in the stash. Rick L.

    B-47 suggestions?

    I have made progress on the backstory for this aircraft. B-47E 51-5232 22nd BW March AFB, 2/9/56. Winner of the GE Trophy Race, Bermuda to Oklahoma City. Has nothing to do with any SAC sponsored bombing or nav competition. Information comes from the book "Boeing B-47 Stratojet" Habermehl & Hopkins. The graphic for this, the right side is thus: Winner 1956; General Electric Trophy Race; Speed Run; last line unknown. Two photos in the book show the 1) entire right side, without the nose graphic confirming the aircraft serial on the tail and, 2) the left side of the nose with a second version of the graphic: Winner 1956; General Electric; Speed Run; 601.187 MPH; then 5 lines of small black lettering which I believe is the crew names and ranks. I have the crew names from a Wisconsin newspaper archive online, but now I can't find it again. I still need good, closer photos to really confirm this and show the style of lettering. But this is way farther than I was before. Rick L.

    modelcollect B-52D

    The movie used a model of both a G and an H. Which strangely enough, cast a shadow that looked like a B-17 while performing some goofy flight attitudes. Not the best of cinematic special effects, but it somehow adds to the absurdity of the film in a positive way. Rick L.

    modelcollect B-52D

    You need the Universal Bomb Carrier rack to mount one of the big arse nukes to the B-36/47/52, but once its up in there you would never see the rack. Search for bomb bay pictures of the B-47E at the SAC Museum and you can see the item itself. Wouldn't be a tough scratch build at all. Rick L.
