Speaking of numbers, I tried looking up the tail number on this model for some historical background and could find no information on it anywhere. Does anyone know if it's based on an actual aircraft or not, and if so, where to find out more about her history?


Here's the only picture of it I was able to find -

I'll bet Chip or one of his crew designed the model while residing near Phoenix and used this jet on a stick as their subject.

Can't locate any such thing as a Coffey Aviation Museum, but wherever that F-84 is now, it is probably wearing new colors and new numbers.

Here are some shots of my most recent completion, the Mig-21.

I had a lot of fun making these tiny little Atolls, so I thought they deserved their own pic...

Image

I enjoyed this build, and the only difficulty I encountered worthy of mentioning is that the gear doors were too small to cover all of the wheel well areas. I may have caused this myself when I printing if I forgot to turn off the "Shrink to fit" button (for some reason I cannot get this to stop being the default setting, and I have to remember every time!). Oherwise a fine little model. Good job Dr. John Glessner!

That's a great Mig. I don't know how you managed to build the missiles so perfect, but wow! I had one of John's Migs nearly completed shortly before the strike of the toddler occurred. It has since been scrapped. I'm due for another one.

Hahaha. Very funny. Well, not really. Things are moving along. I'll post some before and after pics when it's about done. In the appropriate place of course. I don't think Jobeaux would appreciate pictures of my basement project on his build thread. :P

Thanks for the compliments gentlemen.

A lifelong fascination with how scraps of paper, steadily rolled between the fingers, naturally become tighter and tighter. I was a strange kid, but could amuse myself with almost anything. The really tough part was that the front fins on the missile were smaller than the ends of my very oversized tweezers donated by my fiance who works in the medical profession. (The wedding is next month on the 11th for any who were wondering. :D )

Au Contraire, I would never presume to dominate a conversation just because my name is at the top of it... "Let threads wander where they may." seems as good as any other motto to live by on the internet. Unless it gets nasty, then let's just say I have a friend on another forum who has this boat... Besides, I spent years trying to be a craftsman in jobs where just slap it on there was the expected method. If you put half as much effort into your house as you do models it should be worth seeing!

Yup. Feel yourself growing fins or control nozzles yet? :twisted:

While Dave's boat amuses me, and I whole-heartedly approve of her intended purpose, I hope she is never needed here!
