I don't think the SAC colours are necessarily 'high altitude' colours, they're just not SEA ones.

By Mark Maxey found on the "The Mediocre Modelers group" page.


"Hi all, I attend a lot of model shows and get fed up with seeing the same models painted in the same schemes. As a result I often try and produce something visually different. Here are a couple I have done. They may not be perfect, but they certainly attract a bit of attention as people try to figure out if it's a model of a real example or not. Some call it 'what-if'. I call it 'well, I was bored and thought I would have a bit of fun'."

"Ticker Tape."    That's what I would call it. The riff-raff might call it "confetti."   ;D

Reminds me that I have another 1:100 VF-1 on the agenda, with an anniversary scheme that uses very similar design elements as the Bucc's confetti scheme.

To me, this was a treat!!!!  Apparently he was finished with it some time ago, but just posted it yesterday.


By Gary L. Dailey. Found on the "Facebook Scale Modellers" group.

"Meant to post this during the winter holidays but got sidetracked. I just HAD to do a holi-DAZE project and this is what emerged! Santa holding up his Cognac bottle for a refill! “BLUE ANGELS” are escorting wearing state of the art headgear! Made almost all of the decals including the Grinchs on the engines. Hand painted a lot! Tiny pin holes in the back, sides and lid make for a starlit effect inside with stick-on stars of varied sizes inside near each hole and using natural room light seeping through to do the job. Santa and the reindeer are Preiser HO miniatures which I super detailed, hand painted and added beer kegs and cases of beer spilling out the back of the sleigh and into the clouds! Special deliveries? Lots of fun! Enjoy! "
