Great link, Mike. I think I've got at least one picture of an operational RCAF Bomarc - a close squint seems to confirm your info: RCAF under stb wing and maybe number under the port. I'll try and duplicate that mixed with the one on display in Tim's photo (earlier post).

*He looks at the Stomp rockets and what not then his sleep deprived and stressed out brain gutters badly*
First off: Mike Yogi , GREAT ideas and designs and you two gave me a good one for a rocket that I'll fiddle with tomorrow.
Now for the bad idea. Remove 2 liter bottle and build like Potato Gun. :D

This is a bit late, but I've been ill all month and just got out of the hospital 2 days ago.

Here's a shot of my rather battered old CAF B model, unfortunately lost in a disk crash. It's a repaint of my A model with new engines. I never knew about the repositioned wing and engines until reading this thread. I still have the A, so will probably rework it eventually.

If I'm not mistaken, 446 was not an operational missile, but was assembled from spares fro gate guard duty. anyone know better?

I also included an old low-res (old camera) shot of the B. It's tail is torn off at the moment, so need to fix it (again).

Thanks, all. Nice models, Scott. I like the display stand - clean look.

Stephan - check post 3. Lots of ways to launch the rockets, but I don't know how sturdy the rocket tubes would be on a potato gun (you can alway laminate more layers and reinforce the pressure seal until it doesn't blow up on launch ...)

I've got one shot of 404 at a launch site; also seems consensus insignia is RCAF on the sides. Probably stick with the 446 tail number. Two variants of the tail flag - I'll go with the simple maple leaf rather than the shield and jack.

Black Test Shot paint scheme

Did some corrections based on the eponymous builder's input - then did a quick test build to make sure they were actual fixes. Note - if you reduce a model 50% (to save on massive areas of black ink in this case) you should also think very seriously about using lighter weight paper (it worked, eventually).

Some corrections made to the insignia and repaints for the black and Canadian Bomarcs should be Ecardmodels shortly.

The simple stomp rocket versions posted in the aviation downloads have also been updated.

Will I have to buy it again?

Downloaded from eCard when first published to the site - will this mean I'll need to buy it again to get the corrections? (Thinking how Fiddler's Green works with their 'folder' system...)
Thanks!

Robert, not sure how Chris works but my suggestion was to allow free replacement of the old file you purchased with the new file. The repaints are separate files but I suggested some kind of reduced price for bundling all three. Standby for Chris to return from his expedition.
