another accidental find... Marvel's Sky Wolves and their exotic mounts:







Note the interesting design twist of these "jet powered Flapjacks":

Wow!  Never heard of that one.  Yeah, it's a blatant copying of "Blackhawks!" but, what the hell!  It certainly would get some odd looks at a model contest showing up with a jet / prop VTOL F5U-2 in that livery!

I like it. Very Bat like. Looks like a cut down CF-100 as well.

In this months SAM's report on the Bolton show there's a WIF that I initially didn't give a second look because I assumed it was a F.A.A. Tomcat. However putting my glasses on it appears to be a swing wing Phantom with the wings at full sweep. Very nice  :thumbsup:

From an old manual that was my Grandfathers, he was a fitter at 6RD during and after the war.



Makes me think the RCAF was considering the B-29

And KC-97s to refuel them too. Bags of Whiffness scope there.  :thumbsup:

Looks like a KB-29P refueling the B-29 rather than a KC-97.

Could be, yes. They'd have ended up with KC-97s though.  ;D

... or, seeing as it's Canada, KB-50s carrying air-droppable lifeboats for SAR and
they'd still be in service today.
