F-100D…Triple Zilch

Trumpeter 1/48 F-100D, S/N 63-000, Triple Zilch. This is one of the most iconic color schemes for the Super Sabre, and I know I won’t be the last to attempt it. This jet was the personal mount of USAF Col. Raymond F. Toliver, Commander of the 2[...]

Finally Something Finished!

My first completed kit for the year, I present a Special Hobby 1/72 CAC C-3/5 Wirraway. On the whole this was an enjoyable build. It was a pretty easy kit especially for a short run model. The only issue for me was that the exhausts didn’t fit[...]

F-86D 1/48 Revell

A year ago I said I was not going to deal with resin and photographed parts for the models or the rivet counting. I'm just glueing myself. Just to explain why this is so. I take this activity as a relaxation. The Revell model is very cool and th[...]

Pilot’s Last Flight

For Christmas of 2003, I found a gentleman at a local airport who owned a T-28, one of the primary trainers my dad had flown earning his wings. I offered to pay him to take my dad up for a flight in his plane, but he agreed to do it and refused [...]

F-100 Super Sabre (The Hun)

I've about finished selling these old slides of my dads, so thought I'd start posting some of these pics in a series. Dad flew with a camera frequently and took some great air-to-air photos (as well as some stuff on the ground). I just finished[...]
