This reminds me of a predatory bird, sitting and watching for its prey at an elevated point of advantage.

I submit this photo, not so much as to do with General Bernard Schriever 'Father of Air Force space and missiles' depicted in the photo, but more the myride of models of ballistic missile designs shown, which were studied. Many of which I've never seen before, let alone know anything about.
How cool would it be to have this collection in the study!!😯

Not quite all, but quite a few. These were done by a mate of mine in the UK who is the brains behind Stargazer Models.

A lot of these are extensive scratchbuilds and/or accurarizing of stock kits, before some of the newer Real Space kits were around.

These are not mine, but a photo of his display shelf.

His gawdawful website.. I have been on him to give it a make over.

Almost looks like a painting. :icon_surprised:

Any aircraft/vehicle/vessel in that condition looks sad. :icon_crap:

Agree, it's quite sad isn't it Old Wombat.
I've always like the idea of a museum that specialised in prototypes and mockup!!

Now here is an interesting shot. One of the latest two Challenger 650's (144619) acquired by the RCAF. Note how it has the RCAF @ ARC on the nose, while all the older RCAF Challengers do not. Next is the newest CC-295 Kingfisher in Canada, 501, then the final remaining 4 flying Buffalo aircraft that this new fleet will eventually replace and then a Cormorant to round off the flight line in Comox. (My photo)

Click on photo to Buffalo size it. Note: CFB Comox.

RAF Photographer @RafPhotog

@LockheedMartin@thef35 flown by @OC617Sqn & VMFA-211, @MCASYumaAZ, were captured as they flew in support of Ex Joint Warrior 20 from the @RoyalNavy @HMSQNLZ

Here they were seen tanking via an @AirbusDefence @AirTanker out of @RAFBrizeNorton before returning home to @RAF_Marham

Though, there's no rest for either squadron, with @OC617Sqn & VMFA-211, @MCASYumaAZ, bouncing straight onto Ex Crimson Warrior.

The culmination of numerous exercises that have taken place over the last few months working with our @NATO partners to enhance our interoperability.
