  1. RIAT Surprise!

    The B-2 at RIAT was as much for Lil Kim's benefit as it was your's; a display of "global reach" is what the appearance was all about.
  2. Mixed fleet of F-35s for UK?

    The pending F-35 purchase will certainly bolster the ranks of the RAF and RN; imagine how many pilots, maintenance, supply, and admin personnel are going to be needed to put this aircraft in the air, There's going to be some hiring and training to do for sure. I suppose that there may be some holdover personnel, left over from defunct programs, but I suspect new personnel will be required. So, if one is keen on flying, or being associated in some way with the Lightning II, now may be the time to consider joining up. Making Britain's air services great again....
  3. In Iraq, everything is coated with dust. We used to have these days when the entire sky was like an orange fog...it was really orange dust! You have done a superb job with the Messerschmidt...Congratulations on your fine work.
  4. Bristol Beaufighter TF.X late production tail

    Good work on the Beaufighter tailplanes. This is a subject that has needed some sunshine, especially regarding the control rods for the servo balance tabs. A lot of models (and museum aircraft) have the control rods on top of the tailplanes; the drawings that you are using show, and describe, the control rods as being fitted on the underside of the tailplane, which I believe to be the correct location. Thanks for the great posting; I appreciate it.
  5. Not one dime shown for any construction in my home state of California...thanks to loser Senators Harris and Feinstein.
  6. Congratulations on an excellent build. The paint work is superb, and the added little touches really make this model a work-of-art...outstanding!
  7. Masterful...Congratulations on a very fine build. Also, thanks for the tutorials on using the Silhouette; I recently pruchased a Silhouette Portrait to be used for modelmaking;.your tips, and the excellent screen shots are really appreciated.
  8. California calling. Gorgeous work...congratulations!
  9. Airfix Sea Vixen

    Excellent...good job. This is modelling at its best. Congratulations.
  10. I, too, am following this WIP, since I have this kit in the build pile. Looks like you are off to a great start. One issue that I have with this kit is the grossly-overdone ribs on the fabric-covered portions on the wings, and empennage. Do you have any plans to address this?
  11. F-35A into combat?

    That's why the Israeli's were given the F-35 so soon...to get the bugs worked out. Over the years, the Israeli's have shown that they can develop, operate, and, sometimes, improve, the weapons systems that they acquire. If any country can bring the F-35 into the fight, without protracted (and artificial) development, the Israeli's can.
  12. Fantastic model, and excellent back story. Way to go, Steve!
  13. Eduard 1/48 MiG-21SM

    Your finish is flawless...simply gorgeous! Congratulations!
  14. Yak 23 Flora

    Outstanding work on a rough kit. I really like the looks of this aircraft, and your work made a mediocre kit turn into something special....congratulations!
  15. A US Marine Corps MV-22B Osprey crashed on the Okinawa coast, destroying the aircraft, and injuring five crew. From video, the Osprey is in pieces, and should be considered a total write-off. According to news sources, the Osprey was conducting refueling operations when it went down. https://www.marinecorpstimes.com/articles/crew-safe-after-osprey-crash
