  1. You out did your self there, Brian

  2. Nice work….I think you’ve “captured the look” just right.

  3. I’m with Paul and Craig, it looks “right”. Even if it’s not an F-104…

  4. Nice work. According to General Carl’s story he told me at an AFAA convention, this airplane was a “hangar queen” they found on Espiritu Santo when he completed his tour and the PIO was making a press conference for him. “We stuck Japanese flag stickers on it and I sat on the wing and they took pictures and it became my airplane, despite the fact I had never seen it before or even sat in the cockpit.” That was true for nearly every Solomons ace – nobody had their “own” airplane.

    But like I said, very nice work on the model.

  5. Glad you rescued it, Brian, it looks really good.
