I visited the A-7 when we were in town.  It's striking.  The A-7 guys aren't thrilled with the markings, but it is sharp, and well cared for.

My passenger did a drive by lol. Erie, Pennsylvania.




That's an F-94C, but without ANY wing tanks, isn't it? A most unusual configuration.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

That's what I want for the front yard - a Thud.
Mrs z has expressed concerns that it might be too large.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

The late Mrs_PR19 once decided that she'd like a Wessex in our front garden when she heard that the RAF were selling them off at bargain prices. Just for the hell of it I checked and found we COULD have actually afforded one, and it would have fitted in the front garden too (just....) but actually getting it to our house from St. Athan would have cost a FORTUNE!  :o
 
We didn't bother to check with the neighbours either.............  ;D

Neat thing about the Thud is that the car parked behind it makes you realise how big it is.

I hadn't noticed it but now you mention it, it is on the large size. Pass as a medium sized family home over here  ;D

Mind you they could all just be models and someone's screwed the scales up ?  ;) :angel:

The current garage I have is 30ft x 36ft and has a 10ft high roll up door----  ;D

My first car I bought when I came to Canada was a 1970 Chrysler Newport, it's overall measurements were bigger than our old living room/dining room which took up the back half of our old house in England. The front half was the kitchen/small washroom/hallway, upstairs was three bedrooms and the bathroom and that included the stairway from the ground floor.

If I'm not building models, I'm out riding my dirtbike
