      Very impressive .. You reminded me of that Vietnam Huey pilot's book ..Chicken something ? , I think ,read it in the 80s ..What a great story . Well done for your service too !

  3. Flickr has really mucked up their site since changing over, but this should work: Try moving your cursor on the picture and my name should appear in the lower left corner, click on my name and should take you to Flickr.

  5. This is a very interesting kit from Tamiya, that one rarely sees built up for the contest table. I thought I'd try a relaxing build for the fun of it. Boy, was I in for a surprise! This is one big airplane! Molded in 1975, the plastic is warped, and it has raised detail that in many places needs to be re-scribed. Also, there is a ton of sanding and filling to do, especially when mating the engine nacelles to the wings. I also painted the plane's exterior with Tamiya rattle cans, which is like spraying a model with a fire extinguisher! But hey, I'm always up for a challenge. So I added 4 Doyusha electric motors, illuminating altitude lights, Eduard photo etch cockpit, sound effects via an MP3 player, and a Coastal Kit Base, and Paul Colombo Wood Bases. If your going to build a difficult kit, why not go all out! Like I said, I wanted a relaxing build! So I hope you can sit back, relax and enjoy the pictures. ( I even took Silver at the NIMCOM 8 Show last Saturday 22 June, in McHenry, IL, in the Diorama Category.) Double Click on my Name to view videos.

  6. Rotor assembly, rotating and non-rotating swash plates, link tubes, pitch change links, just superb!
  7. Not to worry Nikolay, about the dings and dents on your B/C Mod UH-1. They had them in real life. So good job. The first things to get bent were the cooling vents. And eventually someone would put a foot through the upper green window. These aircraft were kept out doors, unless they were hangared for maintenance. Here is my attempt at the same kit.
  8. I really love the color and finish. I plan to do the Trumpeter in 1/32 scale. Did you use Humbrul (sp) Dark Green on this jet? Did you weather it much? RAF Lightnings always looked nice and well maintained. Thanks!
  9. Really like the detail and finish.
  10. I'm sure its going to Chicago. Thank You. https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=https%3A%2F%2Fi.redd.it%2F3zggb1t789r01.jpg&imgrefurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.reddit.com%2Fr%2FOldSchoolCool%2Fcomments%2F8bfzqo%2Fled_zeppelin_in_their_private_jet_the_starship_it%2F&docid=8BIdUroUpXbzIM&tbnid=xPVVyVUTDV7IcM%3A&vet=10ahUKEwj09eLa7_rhAhWUCTQIHTQDC8QQMwhPKAIwAg..i&w=956&h=634&bih=948&biw=1881&q=led zeppelin jet photo&ved=0ahUKEwj09eLa7_rhAhWUCTQIHTQDC8QQMwhPKAIwAg&iact=mrc&uact=8
  11. Beautiful, I collect CAF aircraft, I'll have to look for this one! Really nice finish.
