Default New arrivals

There isn't a better feeling than getting a model back that you let a friend have 7 years ago. This 1:72nd DFM original blank/stand/logo used to be a Boeing House livery but was totally gone. I refinished this livery back in around 2011 or 2012. Was one of my best I think. I love the Swissair red and white. Anyway, it came back this week.


The others are some more FOMaer models just acquired. Most new in the box. F-14 Tomcat, F-100 Super Sabre, MirageIII, Tornado (mint but needs a cockpit. It was in a pouch but disintegrated upon opening), a mint P-47, and a 1/32 Macchi C 202 that need two blades re-glued, otherwise mint, and an F-15 that can be seen near the DC-9.

Wow! Great models Al. Pretty hard to display them still in the box. Pretty rare to have boxes.

Some very nice models Al. I’m not a military man but I’ve always thought the Tomcat an impressive design. Loving that Swissair.

Neil.

Thank you for that. Yes, that user name is special to me. Don't know what I was thinking when I picked it many years ago (Ebay and chat sites) but it stuck.
My favorite airplane of all times is the Boeing 707. They are almost all gone now, I think. Not sure if the USAF are still flying them as tankers. I also saw a doc on History channel where a private company are using 3 Boeing 707's as tankers (recently). John Travolta gave is to a museum in Australia (So I heard).
