That really is a beautiful looking model! I just noticed the crisp frame masking on the canopy, too - I'm jealous.

You have no idea how much grief that canopy caused me, Frank! Believe me! :o :icon_twisted: :icon_punal: C:-)

It's still a bit rough, in person, but thanks for the compliment! :smiley:

Someone, somewhere, asked me to post pictures of this build with the AIM-9B Sidewinders (eventually) attached. So, I finally got around to taking photo's & here they are:

















Hope you enjoy them! :smiley:

A 1950s force to be reconed with.  Every aspect is period correct.  Such a color scheme too.    :-*
