Oh Boy;

     Yeah, Big aircraft! I built this jewel when it first appeared Actually I built two. One for the Wal-Mart store where I was working the Toy and Sporting Goods depts. Then one for myself.

     Geez, whatta hunk of plastic. Mine took me four months just on the office. I wish I still had the Photos, I would post it in the gallery. I actually bought another that was missing the Armaments and the Landing Gears. Why? I did a cut-away around the Office with all it's in size, little greeblies you'd expect to find around a fighter's office.

    This I gave to a friend at his retirement from the Air Force, at his retirement party.

 He said the only thing that was missing couldn't be discussed in mixed company.( You know, Personal comfort equipment.) I just told him I didn't know where they were mounted and stowed!

This was the big "mud mover" that was a ground attack version. I bought one at Walmart when I was stationed in New Jersey. I built it straight out of box, one color gray, it was a very nice kit. I would say, as a jet plane, probabaly the nicest jet fighter I had ever built (I build mainly armor).

I was really impressed with the kit and I actually thought it was too good for my meager skills because I don't know anything about the plane and didn't put any extra effort to detailing it.
