    • Michael Hines happened to have a very nice camera with him at the local flying field when I was there with my Top Gun refinished Tomcat this past weekend. I've put this pic a few places on facebook, but I feel it's definitely got a home in this thread as well.

      • Gorgeous! If it weren't for the linkages I would think that was a full scale!

Also added a full minute to my flight timer, landing at about 4 min of mixed throttle flying on Admiral pro 4000s. Will definitely be taking the Tomcat out to fly more often now!

                        Based on this report! :-)
