Many thanks for stopping by zubie, Wayne, gotham, Joe, Jeff, and Joshua.

Eric - Thanks for the info on Buck Danny. I will be on the lookout! Somehow, I have never learned of this series, although I have read and have an extensive collection of reprints of Terry and the Pirates, Steve Canyon, Scorchy Smith, Buzz Sawyer, and, of course, Tintin.

Don - Great to see you the past weekend. Been very busy since the Paper Modelers at Army Heritage Days event ended yesterday, but hope to post some images tomorrow.

I made simple bases for the models from 8-inch octagons of 1mm card covered with 1/60 pierced steel planking from Dave Winfield's airfield accessories kit. The third image shows the two models on display at Army Heritage Days.

I started on the FG F-84G, but ran into some problems, so may build the P-80 next, instead.

Nice work on both the F-84 & F-86, Don. They're both great looking models. I look forward to the P-80.

Wonderful models Don. I particularly like the F84. During the mid 90s I lived near the JASDF Iruma airbase just outside of Tokyo. They operate T33s at the time, in a nice silver and dayglo scheme. I used to enjoy sitting at the end of the runway watching them come and go on a sunny day. I didn't realise at the time that I was witnessing the end of an era. I would have liked to have been around during the golden age of fighter jets.

Curious to know what issues you had on the G version.

Great looking models, and very well displayed. Is it the 'raw' simplicity of these aircraft that is the attraction ? The 'no frills' approach much like classic cars ?
