Re: JC Wings McDonnell Dougas MD-11 House Colors (Polished with Logos) JC2MCD353

fongee

I agree. At first I was so worried that the colors were way off. My faulty memory told me the original colors were two shades of burgundy, (light and dark) and I was convinced the model...

Re: JC Wings McDonnell Dougas MD-11 House Colors (Polished with Logos) JC2MCD353

As a proud owner of the JC Wings prototype MD-11 model and a 40 year veteran of Douglas Aircraft in Long Beach, I was concerned that the colors were wrong and truthfully, I couldn't remember what...

Re: Improvements we would be asking from Hobby Master

Hi Shawn
Perhaps I didn't explain my position fully. Back in the '60s and '70s, we considered ourselves airplane historians rather than photographers. As such, we were interested in documenting...

Re: Improvements we would be asking from Hobby Master

Shawn and Ryan

Yes, the Hobby Master models are accurate (as far as I know) and doubtless based on actual photos. Its just that , back in the day, most aircraft in a squadron would also have the...

Re: Improvements we would be asking from Hobby Master

OK. First, I love Hobby Master and show it by buying a lot of their products. I'm staring at a table full of 1/48 scale Spitfires and they are beautiful. The markings and colors look good to me...

Re: Herpa Pan Am Question

i was excited when the Herpa 707 was announced and when I received the model I was disappointed. When I placed it next to my Western Pan Am DC-8, the model's fuselage looked too big and fat compared...

Re: Should I send back my Inflight VC-25?

I often have 747 antennas that are slightly bent in that manner and have had good luck in straighting them (very carefully and slowly while supporting the entire length of the antenna). No breakage...

Re: Inflight DC-10 Nose/cockpit issues...Pics!

The Clear-View (side) window on the DC-10 is huge compared to just about any other type. Its a regular picture window and it can be unlatched and slid backward to open the window. I was on the...

Re: Hobby Master HL9013 Lockheed WV-2/EC-121 Warning Star

Richard

I probably should have been more descriptive. Notice the rectangular flashes (not sure of correct terminology) on either side of the round portion with the star. They are larger in...

Re: Hobby Master HL9013 Lockheed WV-2/EC-121 Warning Star

As with the USAF EC-121, the US National Insignia on these models is a cartoon rather than something that matchs the original. The US insignia follows exact dimensions and proportions that are well...

Re: Hobby Master HA3110 USAF F-102A Delta Dagger, Texas ANG, 111th FIS

Re: SNEEK PEEK: Jet-X UDF Unducted Fan MD-80

I remember going to a briefing shortly after 909's crash. The VP Engineering showed us a slow motion video of the event several times. It was truly impressive. The wing tips seemed to touch the...

Re: GeminiJets C-17A Globemaster III, Edwards AFB, G2AFO254

I have that model too. 70025 was "T-1" the first C-17 built. It recently celebrated 20 years of flying (Sep 15, 2011) and then was retired shortly afterward. As a test airplane, it was too...
