  • Whilst awaiting the arrival of a replacement fuselage for my SU35 I decided to make Sharp Nose Su from the wreckage of my first SU35 desert camo bits rescued from the loft. Here is the final scheme and how I got there.

    • I finished putting all of Callie's markings on my new FMS 1500mm P-47D Razorback. Got the 4th and 5th flights on it today when the winds were light and really a beautiful day.
      A few pics.

                  Thanks, f4u aussie. The original paint scheme of the FMS plane was one I respected, being a top pilot and ace in the Pacific theater in WWII, but I have always like to do my own paint schemes for most of my airplanes.

                  Yes, I know some about the pilot and this airplane. The "OLE COCK" was actually a salutation among Brit men when they saw each other back in those days. It spread to all the "Yanks" that were living among them in England during WWII. The pilot's name was Donavan Smith. He came from Michigan and knew of a rooster logo from his home town that he had the squadron artist paint onto his airplane. I think he had 3 or 4 airplanes that had these markings on them. He was an ace in WWII, and attained the rank of lieutenant general in the USAF before passing away very young at the age of 51 from a brain tumor. I knew a few guys who flew with him in WWII. He was a great leader, very brave, and had the fighter pilot's attitude of pressing forward and defeating the enemy, which he did.

                      • I took my E Flite 1.5M P-51D LOU IV out for the first time since last fall. Over the winter break, I made some color and Camouflage adjustments after reading online, in depth opinions from some very good modelers. I think I'm pretty close to where I want to be with this airplane, now. One of my favorites to fly, hadn't touched the controls in months and had two reasonably good flights on it. Always room for improvement, though!

                                • OV-10 Bronco. My Brother was nice enough to give this Flight Line plane to me for my Birthday. While I was assembling, I decided to try a few different styles of Camouflage. photo taken after first test flight. I like the way this one flies. Has great ground handling and a dream to land I give it two thumbs up.
