So, I’ll probably set up the GB page in December and have it start in January. It will run all year.

F-51s are certainly welcome!

John, glad to see you got the sets and in good condition! 

 

Not sure what I'll do. I did pick-up an old Aeromaster sheet for Korean War F-51Ds though so it's an option.

You will remember our friend Hans Von Hammer, who had as many fathers and uncles in the USAF as he had wives. Four each, but I digress.

His uncle I think 'John", no wait that was the P-39 pilot at Henderson Field.

His uncle "Jim" was the pilot of the famous Sabre "The Huff" that Monogram, Hasegawa, Academy and gosh knows who else marketed.

I'm currently bidding on the Tamiya 1/48 Mig-15 bis.  I'm in if I win!  It will look sweet sitting next to my F-86F Jabara mount.  

Thanks,

John

Another one would be the Fairchild C-119 Flying Boxcar. Italeri reboxed a really fine kit in 1/72.

It comes with the R-4360s and the later R-3350s. And related cowlings. Four bladed and three bladed props, both Hams.

If you are interested in the Indochina war fought by the CIA, the kit has a really good set of markings for that too.

I gave my copy to KeyDa1 as I had no place to store the build.

My boss at SOM flew them out of K-8 I think during the conflict.

Missed this somehow. I wanna jump on this wagon!  Got a couple Tamiya MiG-15s, Monogram F-80,86, Skyraider, MiG-15..........etc. When the time comes I'll hold a lottery with my stash and see what comes to the top.

Thanks, I had no idea about the 10th Mountain figures! 

I've got a set in my stash, guess I need to use them as the WWII figures they were intended... 

 

 

 

The 10th Mountain figures are wearing a very unique Cold Weather uniform with the Anorak, Mountain Trousers, and Shoe Pacs. It was pretty much mostly worn by 10th Mountain Division and 1st Special Service Force (The Devils Brigade) troops in combat in Italy. Possibly by the 1SSF guys during their Aleutians service as well.

 

Thanks!!! I will keep that in mind whenever I finally get around to using them. 

 

Gary: Thanks! Don't need anything else for the stash right now but a MiG-15 is intriging.

I would like to see the Thunderjet.

 

Maybe I can do more than one model? :)

The 10th Mountain guys won’t work. The Anorak that they wore is a pullover  garment and different from the zip front “fishtail” parka worn in Korea like on the Chosin Marines figure set.

But, you can also add the Dragon Iwo Jima Marine figure set as usable. At least for 1950. The Marines were still using the canvas leggings and shoes in Korea in 1950.

I like the idea Bill but figures are kinda a pain to paint. I've been doing it for decades and still aren't happy with mine. Though I guess you're going to have to learn it one day so you might as well try John. 

Dragon did a nice series of Korean War figures years and years ago. I recently picked up a few sets for cheap and would be willing to donate one or two if you'd like to try them. 

I believe Stikpusher did these a few years ago?

And I believe that any late WWII uniform figures should work as well for US troops. Plus replace the heads with Hornet East Asian ones and they work fine as ROK/South Korean troops as well.

What should I do- Thunderjet, Corsair, Twin Mustang, or somethin’ else....? 

Hmm :)

 

Just me. John's quote of God says to save souls. And I really think figures are a key element to any group build. 

How about you do a figure. Or a group of them. Kind of like the ones in DC.

I was 1-AO in the draft in Vietnam. Would be medic.

William Anderson wrote a great book, Battlefield Doc.

David Bleak was given the CMofH for his service as a combat medic and a fighter.

I did an LT-6G a year ago. I knew a fellow here in Orlando who flew them in Korea. I used Eagle Strike decals for mine on a Monogram 1/48 T-6 kit.

OK. On the bench:

Way too much to build in one lifetime...

Thanks for those Stik and KJV. 

It's been a gorgeous day and I've spent it surfing and didn't even get wet. Thankfully I remembered to have dinner ready when my wife returned from work. One piece of information led to another but it was worth it, chose a detal set from Carpena 48.58 T6 Texan & Mosquito USAF. I was amused to read that later on the machine guns were removed due to pilots shooting up the targets instead of marking them, don't know if that were true. 

Don't put off procrastinating until tomorrow.
