I mean how ridiculous is that, a Martin Monterey painted in US Navy colours, madness!

Are you sure it isn't a Martin Marlborough?  ;D  http://www.aircraftresourcecenter.com/Gal10/9401-9500/gal9433-Marlborough-Bailey/00.shtm



But yeah, that Monterey is just sweet, and the scratchbuilt dolly is a work of art in itself.

Thanks Glenn, while... I try to focus on what-if models, forgetting health problems. I go in surgery again this week, then I will go the anticancerous hospital in May to know the doctors' plan. This is not fun but your models bring smiles to this sad world, so let us speak about those plastic aircraft, all right ? (Thanks anyway)

PC-9's all week, flying past, overhead and up and down the coast.   I suspect they have been practicing for ANZAC day flypasts tomorrow morning during the Dawn Services.    :thumbsup:

Could you have mounted over wing Sidewinders in combination with the fuselage mounted Firestreak/Redtop, or were the Sidewinders a direct replacement.

If it's a daft question I apologise.

No, it isn't daft.  The Lightning like all jet fighters is subject to drag rules.  It is why when they changed from Firestreak to Redtop the fin got bigger and they added the two fins under the fuselage.   The Redtop created excessive drag and a loss of direction from the tail.   I suspect adding a multiple Sidewinder installation was possible where the Firestreaks/Redtops were normally carried without too many problems.  There shouldn't be too many problems with an over wing mount either.  It appears BAC was interested in the lower nose, as well as an over wing mount.   Personally, I'd have preferred the overwing mount along with a pair of Redtops on the nose.  That way you'd have a longer-range weapon with some shorter-range missiles and multiple shots.   :thumbsup:

Transfers. Some green stuff that I will use somehow. There's enough that I can make a custom "Chronic Airlines" jetliner logo after I get a couple other things and also perhaps some square roundels for a fictional air force.






Next up, some stuff for a Boeing 727-100 for the USPS.  :wub: :wub: :wub:

Pics at last, sorry for the lateness.



The whole SIG stand.




Left end.




Middle.




Right end.


Not so many Whiffs elsewhere in the show, but this one was too silly to pass up.

Not Whiffish at all but just for JayBee....



They're 1/144 BTW.

 ;D ;D    I've often thought of charging people to park in some of the free spaces here every time they have a big event at the city park a block North. Without fail the entire area fills to the brim with vehicles lined up and down the sides of the street sometimes 3-4 blocks away. I could get my claws into a couple of families with like 6 kids and say, "Hey, secured parking space a couple blocks closer -$20!"  :wacko: :wacko: :wacko: :wacko:



Tan color is solid and smooth on the Rapto!!!!   Next up: The doo-doo brown camo then I can try my hand at the splotchy green stuff!  :laugh:

Here's an interesting one: a ready-made Egyptian Sherman with the FL-10 (AMX-13) turret:
