    Hasegawa 1/72nd Douglas A-3B Skywarrior. Not completely happy with the model, the canopy did fog up a little, maybe from being masked up for a very long period and other problems, including the wings that seem to droop evreyday Crying or Very sad

    You are amazing man! The number of models you complete is fantastic. Ray has the gold for the most number of posts but you definitely get the gold for the greatest number of models completed in a year. And all to a high standard, simply awesome. Well done once again.

    no comments on the colour on this one

    JOKING APART, YOU NEVER SEIZE TO AMAZE US, ONE SUPER MODEL AFTER THE OTHER.
    AS FOR FOGGING UP OF CANOPY IF IT IS NOT DUE TO SUPERGLUE ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS IF POSSIBLE DRILL A SMALL HOLE FROM THE UNDERCARRRAIGE UP TO THE COCPIT, THAT WAY ANY TRAPPED CONDENSATION IF ITS THE CASE OF CODENSATION WILL ESCAPE, MOST PROBALBY NOT INSTANTLY BUT BY TIME IT WILL

    Thanks for the tip alex, I agree with you that it might be condensation, but now there is a big door open (crew acess door) that has been unsealed, maybe it will help.

    I agree with you, after all the airfore developed the B-66 based on the skywarrior. For bat 21, I think that was an EB-66C, got the italeri EB-66E semifinished waiting for painting in 1/72nd. Lt Col Hambleton had to be rescued at any cost to avoid him from being captured by the enemy. He endured 11 days in the jungle before being rescued. You are right that many died to save one, with 2 helicopters and 3 aircraft shot down with the loss of nearly all of the crew, not to count the aircraft damaged as well during the rescue operation.
