  1. I'm old enough to remember when that kit was first issued. You've done a fine job and can be proud of the end result.
  2. A little more information that might help you pin down photos and information. 69-0304 was assigned to the 563rd Tactical Fighter Squadron of the 35th Tactical Fighter Wing (George AFB, Victorville, California) prior to the squadron being assigned to the new 37th Tactical Fighter Wing (TFW), also at George AFB in 1981. In 1989, the 37th TFW designation was transferred to the wing flying the F-117A and George AFB was left with the 35th TFW, to which the 563rd was then reassigned.
  3. Try this link. I found at least three photos of 69-0304 there: https://www.google.com/search?q=F-4G+69-0304&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiS96uJvYLzAhWTkmoFHVDtAoEQ_AUoAXoECAEQAw&biw=1920&bih=969#imgrc=qQ0Qg6rk7-D9iM
  4. A very well made model and many thanks for the historical background.
  5. The color scheme caught me completely off guard. Nothing wrong with it. I just wasn't aware the real plane was ever painted like that. A very nice build and thanks for the positive comments about the kit.
  6. The Panther is a good looking airplane. While many folks seem partial to the F9F-8 variant of the Cougar, I'm very partial to the F9F-6. In my mind, it's elegance is comparable to the classic Hunter.
  7. That's one gorgeous Sabre you have there. Congratulations!
  8. Very nice work. Could we see more photos of the TA-7C, please?
  9. A model that looks real, an excellent display and photography that's top notch. It doesn't get any better than that.
  10. Perhaps model companies are focusing more on their Facebook pages than they are on their actual web pages? Facebook is where they can get a true feel for what their customers think. And Facebook is where the companies are more accessible. Just a thought.
  11. The XB-51 starred as the Gilbert XF-120 in the movie "Toward the Unknown". The movie was produced in 1956.
  12. Beautiful paint work on that one. You can be most proud of it.
  13. It's been some time since I've visited the Work In Progress section of BM but I have to say I'm VERY impressed with what you've done with the Revell 1/32 P-51D. It's interesting that care needs to be taken with assembling the major parts but, in the end, the result certainly looks fantastic to me. I'm looking forward to the end result.
  14. Terrific pictures. I was surprised at how small the Vulcan cockpit appears to be.
  15. Great photography! 00215 looks like she's been through the ringer ... more than once.
  16. It certainly looks like they've done their homework and more on this one. My old fingers don't handle 1/72 scale kits well any more so I'm hopeful they'll give the same attention to a 1/48 scale edition should they decide to go that route. I'm confident the 1/72 scale kit will sell very well and I'm further confident a 1/48 scale kit would too.
  17. What an unusual machine! Your model is truly excellent.
  18. Beautifully built and distinctively marked. It doesn't get any better than that. Well done!
  19. I've never seen pictures of an O-2A in those colors. The model looks very sharp and it's definitely distinctive. Well done!
  20. Actually, I think it stands up rather well under close examination. I don't see anything to complain about. I've always liked the Jaguar two-seaters better than the single-seaters and your model shows their lines very nicely. I'm impressed with your paint work. The red, white and blue look great!
  21. Very nice indeed. No. 92 has always been one of my favorite Lightning squadrons, especially when equipped with the F.2A.
