Great build log.  I am a fan of the Revell/Monogram 1/48 series kits and love to see these builds.  Your build really came out nice and  in such a short time.   Keep up the good work and keep posting.

The best jet in the USAF!  Yes, I'm partial....21 years working on them will do it to you.  SJ was my first assignment!  Went to Desert Storm with the E's.  

Great build!  Nicely done!  And displayed well too!

Thanks everyone!  I won't get through the next build so fast though I'm sure.  Nicer weather has finally started to make an appearance, and spring cleaning the house is on my to do list too.  Chores before fun, lol.

The intake covers come with the kit? They make great sleds in the snow. Used them in Bitburg in the 525 on a few hills when we had enough snow to "work in".

Yep, they came with the kit.  Only came with a few sidewinders, and nothing else.  But I suppose if that was a concern something could be purchase to arm the underside.  I don't really mind.

Nice work.  Kit decals worked well.  I liked adding the red FOD covers to mine too.  Breaks up the monochromatic grey finish.  Good job.

Retired and living the dream!

Thanks!  Actually I finally pulled out the C-54.  It will probably take me a while, as it's starting to get nice out, and there is a lot of things to do outside, lol.  So I'll work on it on not so nice, rainy days.  I tend to go a bit nuts once warmer weather hits, and I have to take care of all the flower beds, clean up the yard, clean the garage, get the motorcycle out of hibernation, spring clean the house, lol.
