Thanx!

Very nice Flyindragons, as usual!

Great VNAF Dragonfly. It looks really sharp with those yellow tanks. All the extra little details in the Encore kit really add a lot to the model.

Hi Ryan, its nice to see something from the other side of the table. I really like the look of this kit, and of the F-13 in general. Thanks for contributing. Shouls we expect a Mig-21PF from you too?

My 1/72 T-28D is done!

That looks so much different than the colorful trainer aircraft version. Its neat to see it with the underwing stores. Kudos to you for adding the interesting figures. The guy in the back seat really brings a unique touch to the build.

I read somewhere that the North Vietnamese captured one of these aircraft, and used it in the close support role. I wonder what that one looked like?

Already done a MiG-21PF.

MiG-21PF

But I'm thinking of a natural metal MiG-17.

As mentioned earlier, here's what I've built in the past.

Here's my Hasegawa 1/48 F-8J converted to an F-8E from VF-162 The Crusaders. Lost the pitot tube to the floor monster so will have to fabricate another one. Decals by Furball were great on the mpst part. Fun build.

Looking good Guys and Gals. Keep up the good work! We have a little over a month and a half to go, so keep them rolling along the assembly line. It doesn't look good for me finishing my F-4B. Had a project for a friends Christmas gift for his uncle. As long as I am getting paid for it I have to take it.

Crap. I hate having to follow such a nicely done Phantom. Here's mine, an Academy 1/48 F-4C Vietnam War boxing. Completely OOB.

My 1/72 Monogram SR-71 Blackbird. This was one of the Habus that participated in the reconnaissance missions over the whole South-East Asian region during the Vietnam war. Done completely out of the box; Tamiya rattle-can black TS14, with Testors Dull Cote finish.

Great job!

I think those tiny pitots have a tiny seeker that pings best on carpet---went through two and finally just put a small piece of plastic in.

Gotta be the the last thing to put on!

Like the AB exhaust position, good to see that you caught that.

I think everyone know Itar and his wonderful stories from the time when he was serving in Vietnam. I´m VERY proud to show you the M113 that belongs to some of these stories, "Devils Disciple". Ikar was nice enough to provide me with a set of self-made decals, and I´m forever grateful for these!

Bob, I hope you like it!
