  1. As a taxpayer, I will be royally ticked off if any demonstration team uses an airplane as expensive to buy and operate as the F-35. I'm hoping for retired F-15's in that role!

    Meng F-35A in Hypothetical dress in flight

    Nice display. But, I will bet that the new Boeing trainer will be the next T-Bird.

    Williams Bros 1/72 C-46 Builld Series, Part 13

    Richard, I am pretty certain the hole on the nose is a cabin ventilation air intake.

    US Army Vietnam Helo Colors ?

    I think Olive Drab changes a lot depending on how flat the finish is. The CH-37's in my guard unit in the late 60's were transitioning to a flat finish from a glossy OD. Also the glossy finishes did not fade anything like a flat finish. Here is a CH-37 in the older finish, and then another after repainting in probably 34087.

    Williams Bros. 1/72 C-46 Build Series, Part 5

    Of the models I have on display, the C-46 is one of my favorites. I'm sure yours will be a beauty. I wish I had opened up the cowl inlets, and I'll lower the cowl flaps if and when I build another. Is the pe still available? I thought I had already given a link to my build log but here it is, and a picture from it. I made the decals using Corel Draw and an ALPS printer. http://yolo.net/%7Ejeaton/mymodels/c46/1c46/1c46.html

    Beautiful model. Don't care about the vents, so I must be a heretic but I am a happy one.
  8. See if King's Hobby will put them on consignment or buy them.

    1/48 prototype Spitfire conversion

    David, I have the Paragon set for this, and as I already built the 1/32 version it is available.

    Another Stearman in progress

    Yeah, pretty. That is a really nice kit.

    1/48 B-66 Destroyer- DONE!

    Gil, that looks a lot better than the Collect-Aire XB-51 I have. It has a fuselage in 45 parts and all suffered shrinkage, none the same. But I really want a 1/48 XB-51 so maybe I should drag it out before I get to old. Anyway, I have a pretty good belt sander and respirator.

    Hello from N. California

    Thanks, Mark. Yes, I believe I have seen you around too. I mostly am at FSM, Agape, and Swanny's.

    Williams Bros. 1/72 C-46 Build Series, Part 1

    Thanks, Richard. I still have four more original kits in the stash so I made a template of the fixed floor. I doubt I will get to it but I can see a C-46 built up with open doors and loading a jeep on a ramp.
