  1. Having grown up about 20 miles from Wright Patterson AFB, I spent a lot of time at the Air Force Museum. When the F-82B "Betty Jo" was brought to the museum in 1957, I immediately fell in love with this 2-in-1 Mustang. There have been several models created by as many manufacturers, but they are smaller scales than the 1/32 that I wanted. Information for the F-82's is scarce, but after a year's worth of research and some help from friends at the Air Force Museum and Boeing, I started to recreate "Betty Jo" in 1/32 scale as she appeared after being turned over to NACA for high altitude research
  2. You can also use Krylon Crystal Clear Acrylic for coating the decals after printing. It dries fast, is available in flat, semi, or clear coats, and it lasts forever. It is great for making anti-glare panels. Ken Friend
  3. If I have overlooked this in my searches, I apologize. Is the criteria for the Gold, Silver, and Bronze system posted somewhere? I really hope this works well. Personally, I think it will bring in new blood, and certainly is a better way to judge the "skill level" of an entry. I look forward to seeing how it works out. Ken Friend
