Willygoat, You wrote this almost 2 years ago..... Speaking as an interested observer, I vote that you dust off the Starship and give us all something to look forward to.

I'd love to see the completion of this model as I'm sure that you would too.

Please consider getting it finished.

Thanks Swampfox. Well, the inital level of crushing has been overridden during our basement finish project. The previous work has been completely ruined. But, the Starship is on my shortlist of builds. I have one I need to finish that's started, and I'd like to start on the derKampfflieger B-47, but after that is the Starship. Maybe I'll do multiple builds. I do have a couple of weeks off over Christmas break

Beggers can't be choosers. I'll take what I can get. If you can do a multiple build, more power to you.

Say, is that a photo of the SAC Museum at Mahoney State Park near Ashland, Nebraska? (Next to your name in the header) I spent 3 days at that museum, my wife spent 3 days at Mahoney;-) We both had a great time.

Thanks,
Swampfox

In 2003 my wife and I took a cross country driving trip to visit a couple of aviation museums and ended up at Kitty Hawk, NC for the 100 years celebration of the Wright Bros. 1st flight.

The SAC Museum was one of those museums.... I was totally impressed with the collection, displays, buildings....it must be a great place to work. It would be my happy place too. They had a special MASH display on the lower level while we were there.

It was also my first viewing of a Vulcan Bomber, that is one big a/c. The whole collection is just amazing. Excellent work you guys do.

Take care,
Swampfox

Wow, that's a long time to remember a picture. Must have been a real nice time! If you're ever back in the area let me know. I'd love to meet up. Plus, there's a few new acquisitions since you've been here :D

It was very impressive and memorable.

I pass through the area once in a while, next time I'll get in touch and plan on spending a day looking at the new additions.

later,
Swampfox
