  1. For a second there ...I thought it was the real a/c. Great Pics. Where did you get the male model ? Must of been expensive.

    Great Model TC.

  2. I was thinking the same thing as Stephen, at first. I saw your earlier photos and thought "Hey, that plane has the same markings as your model." The photos are great at getting those perspective shots that add to the model's realistic look and finish.

  3. A nice job on the photography...who's the gray-haired skinny guy?

  4. Wow Tom! I thought it was areal one. Nice job on that monster. I see big models like yours and I'm getting the urge to try one.

  5. First the P-51B, then the Huey, now a B-17 ! But wait ! The B-17 is...a model ! You sure had me fooled for a couple minutes. Great work, Tom.
