  1. Hello Dears !! For the ones who know me, if something is weird... I feel irrestibly attracted... So years ago, when I see it... I knew for sure that I will make one..... One of these day !! This day is today !! Soooo !! My first viet Nam serie Aircraft is a U.S Navy one !!! Yiiihaaaa !! The tamiya kit is a good and decent one, the best for a late Skyraider in fact But... The interior has been improved with resin parts from an Aires Kit ! and I also added some scratched parts that are missing even in Aires kit ! On the 20th of June 1965 L Cdr Greathouse was Canasta leader in a CSAR Mission These day, the Skyraider have been intercepted by 2 MiG 17... They jettisoned their ordnance... One point for the MiG And performed a Lufberry circle to protect themselves... But !! A MiG jockey have been a bit more selfish and tried to broke the circle... Comin'in just in front Of Lt Charles Hartman... Bad Idea !! The venerable Spad had teeth... So Hartman fired his 4 20mm and practised a scissor manoeuvre helped by Lt Clint Johnson... 10 point the the Spads... It has been registered as a shared victory since the MiG 17 received enough of lead to flip over and crash in the jungle... The second MiG take an evasive action and left the scene.... There has been a second MiG 17 kill by Lt Jg William Patton from the VA-176 But that's another story !! I suppose that L Cdr Greathouse choose to send his sqdn best wishes week later and dropped this unusual "Bomb"
