Michael Albert, Canyon Country, California
Michael’s is a sad tale: “This is a kitbashed 1/48 scale model of a moon-based U.S.-Earth Patrol Fighter,” he writes. “It is painted in a Mars patrol paint scheme. I made it from 1/48 scale F-15 and F-18 parts and lots of body putty. The base is made of plastic stock and parts from my scrap box. Two weeks after this photo was taken, this model and others were destroyed in a fire that leveled the hobby store where it was on display.”
Damn. What a sad end to a beautiful concept model.
Michael, Sorry to hear about the Hobby Shop, hope no one was hurt. A very cool model that met the enemy it couldn't beat. Keep on building!

Very cool Model. It's a shame it was lost in a fire. I lost over 100 built models to an Similar Incident a long time ago.
