  1. An interesting group. I confess to feeling a bit of a fraud as the dio base and figures for the trench-crash Roland scene were only a week’s work. You never can tell….

  2. Brilliantly done dioramas…..wonder what’s holding up that KC-97?
    Must be very light.

  3. Martin, Thank you for sharing the show with us, this is great stuff.

  4. Nice stuff. One thing though about the refueling diorama: the KC-97’s top speed was just about the B-47’s stalling speed. They did that maneuver in a dive, with the KC-97 at the upper range of its performance and the B-47 getting progressively hairier as it got heavier, and it was about 10 knots above stalling speed the whole way down. No wonder they were happy when the KC-135 came along. I used to know a B-47 pilot who told me he was always terrified doing that, one time in a storm over the Atlantic and he had to take on a full load or he wasn’t going to make landfall.
