Academy F-14A 1:48 (1988 tool)

I must say I was always intimidated by builds of modern aircraft but this build changed my mind. The kit is from 1988 and does not stand up to the new Tamiya kit but I managed to have a lot of fun with it. Lots of fit issues and old decals but I[...]

First, let me say this—I originally wanted to title this post, “To Hell with this F6!” But, thought our web site benefactors wouldn’t appreciate it. However, my fellow builders, this kit was anything but fun. Maybe its because I’ve been dist[...]

National Naval Aviatin Museum, Pensacola Fla, Pt 2. Hangar Bay One,plus

Basically shots of more modern aircraft, that weren't in the main section. The actual name plate off the now scrapped Forrestal, and the memorial plaque honoring those that perished in the fire off Vietnam, it used to hang in the hangar bay. Th[...]

National Naval Aviation Museum,Pensacola Fla. Part one, Flightline Ramp

Checked off an item from my bucket list, last weekend. Limited photos of the outside ramp, Jaime Carreon covered the other areas recently. One note, the C-130 is supposed to be the one that flew onto and of the Forrestal in the early sixties. Pi[...]
