All done! The USMC brought the Skyraider out of retirement for the Gulf campaigns of the early 1990's. The new "K" version features certain upgrades and modifications, some of which moved the cockpit further back and, added new avionics, gunsights, and communications equipment and software.

The thread's first profile:


Hi rez here (https://www.deviantart.com/scooternjng/art/335-FS-VB-25-Squadron-Hack-20XX-821947928)

335th Fighter Squadron hack Clay Pigeon (II)

First of TSGT Isurugi's find, and the more airworthy of the two, the Clay Pigeon (II) spent more time bouncing between Misawa and Iruma AB with occasional diversions from Iruma to Okinawa, than it did sitting on the tarmac at Misawa AB.  After hearing that LTC Marx was repainting the squadron's Strike Eagles (and lone F-15F Cheetah) in historical-style markings, TSGT Isurugi had the Clay Pigeon (II) painted in low-viz markings and gunship gray, primarily to avoid it from being intercepted and shot down by trigger happy or nervous JASDF and FEAF combat air patrols.

North American AF-82/A-11 Super Twin (1960/70's Vietnam)

My build can be found here;
https://www.whatifmodellers.com/index.php?topic=47043.0

Here's a few more photos.

The Super Twin was able to carry a varied weapons load, sometimes what ever was available.

"Captured damaged from the Egyptians in 1948 it sat around largely untouched until 1956 when it hastily had the brown portions of the camo painted over with the IAF greenish-blue color of the day. New tailplanes were installed so those had both camo colors of the standard IAF scheme of the day. The winglets were later found in the back of the aircraft and retain the original Egyptian paint. The undersides are also the original Egyptian paint. Then I added Suez stripes."

1973 release of the Airfix 1/72 Westland Lysander. Brush painted with hobby acrylics. Cleared with Krylon rattle can. Microscale transfers for T-6 Texans.
