Something more practical than the shiny ensemble worn by our favourite Lieutenant Gay Ellis (Gabrielle Drake) from the UFO television series :smiley:   

Dunno, that looks like the perfect garb for a female trying to join the 1,000-Mile-High Club, ;)

If I ever stumble across a deal for the 1/48 Airfix kit, I'd make one as an HMX-1 white top. 

(The kit I already have in the stash is going to be done as a Cormorant with the Belcher Bits resin)

The scheduled break from F-35 photos is now over. We now return to your regular programming of way too many F-35s..
