First pic



 
King Arthur: Can we come up and have a look?
French Soldier: Of course not. You're English types.
King Arthur: What are you then?
French Soldier: I'm French. Why do you think I have this outrageous accent, you silly king?

Well regardless I would rather take my chance out there on the ocean, that to stay here and die on this poo-hole island spending the rest of my life talking to a gosh darn VOLLEYBALL.

Wow!  Somehow, that teardrop canopy looks right at home on the angular F-117.  Nice work!

To anyone out there interested in doing this type of model:  The AMT 1/72 F-117A has a shallower wing sweep and is somewhat pudgier than the actual F-117A.  It might be a better starting point.
The Leng Plateau is lovely this time of year
