The Revell/Monogram cockpit is badly researched, so due to this factI chose the Pavla aftermarket resin cockpit . An overall re-scribing was needed because the kit came from 1986 and doesn’t include any engraving. It was very easy to handle this[...]
In December of 1985, the U.S. Army Parachute Team, the Golden Knights, leased two F-27-400M Friendship aircraft from the Dutch aeronautical firm, Fokker. The two planes were to replace the team's aging fleet of YC-7A Caribou, which had served th[...]
I’ve posted several photos of soldiers and airmen with their pets and mascots, but this one seems somehow special. This photo of a GI (535th Anti-Aircraft Artillery Battalion, 99th Infantry Division) waking up to be greeted by his pal captures t[...]
Youtube has another neat film short done in Germany during the Great War. Showing some very involved manufacture of Albatros aircraft...from wood stock selection to final finish.
