  1. Nice clean build there, and overall a really nice finish. Excellent decal looks like there was a lot of them. I like that SAC shield on the side. My dad flew for them for many years. I have very fond memories growing up on the different military bases. Funny the stream of consciousness that your model brought that to my mind. Thanks for that.

  2. Glad it brought back good memories. You're right about lots of decals but they behaved well.

  3. You should consider future 'forays' in to this scale, Al...ya dun gud.

  4. Thanks Craig. I've got a D.520 close to being finished that is the 3rd of 3 in a group build. The other 2 have already been posted then it's back to 1/72nd.

  5. Nice looking Thunderjet Al. You should do more 1/48. I did the Monogram version and it also had lots and lots of decals.

    Good job! I'm not a jet -man but love to see those early ones that still looked like planes...

  8. Clean and tight. Just right.
