The Nose and Cockpit windows don't look quite right on the C-141A.

very good looking models....can you mention the name of the British manufacturer from whom you ordered the C-141 Starlifter and C-5 Galaxy if its really made of diecast ? As far as I know....only dragon and gemini make the C-5 in diecast and only with 1/400 scale....wooden or plastic models of a C-5 are common these days I guess....In any case....thanks for sharing your beautiful collection and its very well appreciated.....

Yes, the C-5 "Galaxy" is made of wood, in scale 1 / 200 can't find the model yet. But when the C-5 (die-cast) becomes available, I'll buy it.
