1/32 Air to air refueling Iraq 1991

Latest mammoth project was a US Navy AAR diorama during desert storm.

Both models are Trumpeter with lots of aftermarkets and both have dedicated WIP post on my blog. The A-7E was posted here before if I remember well.

The diorama is about 1m20 long and quite hard to display and photograph (call me crazy :) )

Excellent! For a longer period of time I was thinking of KA-6D + F-14 refueling diorama.

Your looks awesome. Photographs don't show it (as you said), they seem typical 1/48s from first 2 photos at least. When you come closer it becomes evident this detail can't be achieved in 1/48.

Dude you are a refueling diorama depiction machine! I've always loved your Rafale set up and now you have this!!! I agree with Tapchan that the only thing better would be a Tomcat. Excellent work Reddog!

Amazing, if I didn't know they were models - in some photos they look like the "Real-deal."

Excellent presentation, the models are nicely weathered and accomplished... well done!

That must be a monster-size display.    I'll never tire of looking at those ultra-realistic pics.   You're an amazing modeler and weathering master, Red Dog!

Wow such an inspirational display. I always wanted to do this but I think I have more modest goals and planning something in 1/144. I really like your basket and I think it is even better considering it is in 1/32nd. I will now have to go to your blog and see how you did this amazing work.

That is awesome! A lot of gas was passed that way during Desert Storm!

Both aircraft are awesome...crew looks very real and the drogue looks super real!

Great job on everything!

Cheers...Ron
