Eddie, you have really created something special out of that uber bug and spare parts.  I like it!

Once again, I thank you all for the kind words.  B)  :)

JHM has,again, been incrediblily helpful during my builds. This time he hooked me up with some NASA decals. I've got a basic layout done. With the decals, this one is really starting to perk up. ;)

I'm seriously reaching the point where I can't take it anymore.

This is sheer styrene magic!

But please don't tell me you're simply chucking your model up in the Texas sky for the in-flight shots?  Oh, wait: I see the thread!

I took out the hanging lines and the object in the upper right hand corner (whatever it had been).  April 14 Edit: Removed the lines from the belly, too.

Giggling myself stupid at the image of trying to juggle a model and a camera and making the choice of which one you want to save from hitting the deck.

perfect example of how simple lines and simple paint can look so stunning. Elegance is always classy.

I invite all and any criticism, except about Eric The Dog, it's not his fault he's stupid

Thanks you guys! I hung it in a loop of fishing line and then hung that from the dog's zip line. JHM, can you remove the lines from the belly of the bird? ^_^

Daaamn! When I grow up, i want to be able to make airplanes out of chunks of plastic too B)

I like how you kept a little hint of BlueAngel in the stripe behind the cockpit.

Flew over Florida this morning but it was moving so fast, I couldn't get a clear shot of it; sorry about the slight motion blur.
 
Man, it was fast but I could have sworn I heard NO engine noise whatsoever----weird!
 
Was like it was coming in on a glide or something.  Like the space shuttle does.

[not sure how I managed to get the two different views from one perspective but, hey, these things happen!]

Don't care what anyone says, those in flight pictures look so real it's incredible. Hell, sell 'em to some rag somewhere as the latest thing to come out of Area 51, sit back and watch the fun. :D  :D  :D  :D
