I see the Convair B-36 Peacekeeper is up for download. It looks so hug! I was just wondering if anyone ever made this beautiful model and how hard was it and how did it turn out. This is among a few aircraft I really wish I could have seen and watch it take off. Incredible airplane, fantastic model and just to keep us all safe. wc

When I was just a kid, my mother would man the local spotting post. I will explain, before all the radar sites were put in (we have one here at Red Bluff) volunteers would physically man watch sites and keep track of aircraft flying over the Sacramento Valley (and I suppose all other strategic airways). Anyhoo, I can remember her calling in reports of B36s flying overhead all the time. They were easily visible without using binoculars and had a heck of a con-trail.

There is something I would very much like to have seen. So many great sights are gone and the young people of today are really missing out on something. wc
