Well, if you are going to go mad the USN is a great place for that!

As the son of a Naval Aviator who had to go Surface Warfare after developing an eye problem, I say that naval aviation models are good to see.

I remember reading in 1980s, I think in a Phantoms in Vietnam book by Squadron, of one US pilot, I think USAF, mentioning that he had a brief thought that he 'hated to shoot down that MiG-21 because it was such a pretty little airplane'; then he pulled the trigger and blew it up.

All finished, I think I'll continue with the century series and do Bruno's F-101B next. I hope he comes out with an F-106 at some point.

Had a few issues with this one, both with the base model (misaligned lettering, one main gear well not colored in and a missing air scoop) and also with my build of it. Overall though I'm happy enough with it.

Thank you! Just finished Aaron's thud rescaled to 1/100.
Next up will be Bruno's Canadian F-104.

Quite an amazing fleet you are building, and all well done!

However, I have to criticize two items - first, your work area is too clean, and second, you don't have nearly enough tools.
