Murph,

Nice Spitfire!  Just don't let Bish see it.  He's probably had enough Spits for one year!  Stick out tongue

Completed this huge 1/32 Revell F4E commission recently. It has a resin pit and some mods to backdate it to the earlier E variant. The SEA paint was done freehand using a Badger Sotar. Decals are from the Tamiya kit.

PJ, that Phantom is a real beauty! Great job on backdating it to the Vietnam F-4E. Looks all ready to go downtown! Yes

John, those are two great looking builds also! Amazing how that old H-19 kit can still look so good in spite of its age. And ya gotta love that Airbus and its' livery. Not your average looking airliner.

stikpusher, I agree with what you said about the quality of these builds.  All of them look great and it brings back so many memories to see these kits from my childhood still being made into gems today!

Just completed this Revell 1/32 Mustang for the 8th AF Group Build. Lots of scratch work in the pit, gear wells. Wing tank and brake lines added. Paints used were Alclad metallicsi and Model Master enamels. The base is made using an old picture frame, Sculptamold and craft acrylics.

Photographed the Mustang out in natural light this morning to capture some of the Alclad metallic reflectivity that is present but subtle consistent with weathering in an operational combat aircraft.

PJ, that is absolutely gorgeous! Revell Germany sure makes a beautiful large scale Mustang, and you did some fantastic work with it! Toast

I built this old monogram/revell 80s era 1/35 AH 64 in IDF markings.

The detail in the kit is OK, a little heavy in terms of rivet size but not to bad. Fit in areas was tricky, might have been warping due to age.

Gotta do my part for the old Monogram thread, here's the Bill Koster/Monogram 1/48 XP-72.  There are more pictures in another post in the aircraft section.

My latest are a very nearly original release of the OS2U Kingfisher, plus Revell's repop of that same kit from about 2012.

We've all built at least 3 or 4 of those Monogram B-17s growing up. I have a vintage one in the stash now to go down the rabbit hole with all the new detail parts available today.

But I always wondered why Monogram didn't just sell the clear fuselage half by itself? Then we could show off any kit as a visible B-17.

SR-71A Blackbird

RMG 4967 

 

SR-71 #951 also known for a time as YF-12C #06937, and sometimes confused with A-12 60-6937, the second SR-71 .In 1971, #17951 was loaned to NASA to complete the testing of the YF-12A program. 951 was temporarily designated as a YF-12C  and given NASA#937.  

 

On October 27, 1978, Col. Jim Sullivan and Maj. William Frazier crewed her return flight to the Air Force, where she was put back in their inventory and given back her old number.  Frazier and pilot LtCol. Calvin Jewett logged the last of her 796.7 flying hours two months later, on December 22, 1978

 

951 remained in storage at Lockheed's facility in Palmdale, California until 1990, when she was disassembled and trucked to Pima Air & Space Museum, just east of Tucson, Arizona.
