  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.

    • A friend did one with coat hangar wire – from the base to the B-24, through the B-47, exiting as the refueling probe, up to and through the KC-97 to the nose. He still had to handle it carefully.

  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.
