I included a Shark Mouth on my Luftwaffe Skyray.  You sometimes see real world aircraft with shark mouths on their tanks.



I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

I've had this book for a couple of decades. Has anyone else seen it?



Yep, I have it as well and Vol 2.

Anything nice or unusual in Vol.2?

Had to do some research but looks like it is the USS Torsk, SS-423, a WWII Tench Class submarine permanently on display at the Inner Harbor in Baltimore.
Google images has lots of pics under the sub name and here are a couple links.

OK DB just for you here are the colour pages from Vol.2.
In the past I built a fair number of models from these two books. The T-28 was built using the old (it wasn't old then) Airmodel Vac-form.
The Canadian CF-104 was the Hasegawa kit, thankfully the book gave left and right side photos (B&W), but it was some years later when IPMS Canada published drawings in their magazine "Random Thoughts" that I realised that the top of the tail[plane shpould be natural metal. Incidentally it was that model that got me talking to Kit Spackman many years ago.

How about this, from that great classic movie, Animal House; it was a very senstive and moving protrayal of young and innocent college students in the early 60s.

....and here are three that I made from those books.
They were made about 31/32 years ago, and were for a mobile above our son's bed when he was 3 or 4 years old.
They are all the old Revel 1/144 scale kits.
I just wish that my eyes and hands could still do painting like that.
