First Cadillac of the skies !

May 30th, 2018|0 Comments

The F-106 is now finally complete ! And per request, the 318th FIS is the first incarnation of this new model. After working on the Six for the past many weeks i´ve become to appreciate this elegant aircraft quite a lot, and i can assure anyone out there, that this is not the last F-106 you´ll see from my hand ! I have received many suggestions on what colors to put on this jet, and in time i hope to make them all ! Thanks so much for your support ! Here´s a few detail shots of the F-106 model.

Last Thud !

May 24th, 2018|0 Comments

Here´s a depiction of the very last F-105F Thunderchief in USAF service. Georgia ANG had taken over the F-105G Wild Weasels from the 35th TFW, and left as the last Wild Weasel squadron to operate the aging Thud. Despite its age (The Thud entered service in 1958), the low level speed was outstanding. Stories from Red Flag in the early 80s tells that the Thud would out pace even F-15s in low level flight. However, on May 25th 1983, Peach 91 (depicted here), made its last flight with Maj. Green as a pilot and MSgt. Nance in the back seat. The flight took the F-105F to Pax River, [...]

Gunfighter !

May 24th, 2018|0 Comments

The caption isn´t usually something that is connected with the mighty Rhino, but in this case its more suiting that one might think. This F-4E Phantom is from the 366th Wing which became known as the gunfighters due to their extensive use of Gun pods during the latter part of the Vietnam war. In the case of this particular aircraft the Gunfighter nickname is even more suiting as Capt. Beatty and 1Lt Summer shot down a MIG-21 on May 23rd, 1972 using the M61 nosemounted Vulcan gun.

Fifty shades of grey – The history of the grey on the grey ghosts

March 17th, 2018|0 Comments

Here´s the result of something i´ve been working on for the past few month: A history of the grey colors used on the US military F-4 Phantoms. After i´ve spend many years working on renditions of that particular aircraft, I´ve accumulated a bit of knowledge about the paint schemes this great look jet have been sporting, over its long service period. I thought to myself: Why not share that knowledge with you guys. So, here´s the result: Fifty shades of grey: The history of the grey colors used on US Military F-4 Phantoms. If you like it, drop me a line in the comments section 😉 NB! Allow [...]

Century series complete…almost !

March 1st, 2018|2 Comments

The headline is what you may call, not completely true. However, there´s some truth behind it after all. The F-106 is coming along, and i thought it would be a good time to show you all a sample of how far along the Delta Dart have gotten. It´s a great looking aircraft IMHO, and the sleek lines is truly a pleasure to work on. Right now I´m thinking about modelling the landing gear too, and put it into 3d scenes (I got a landing scene in mind, that i think would look awesome...just need to figure out what colors to put on the six...suggestions are welcome). Hope you [...]

More Jolly Rogers !

February 17th, 2018|0 Comments

VF-84 were among the first squadrons to take the F-4 Phantom to sea, and also among the first squadrons to trade the B-models for J-models (in 1969). This is a rendition of one of those early J-models (notice the lack of ECM antenna on the intake). This is how the squadrons aircraft appeared in 1970 while deployed aboard USS Roosevelt (CVA-42) while operating in the Med.

All good things…

In 1979 most fighter squadrons in the us navy was replacing their F-4 Phantom with F-14 Tomcats. With the introduction of the multirole Tomcat not only the Fighter mission was taken over by the F-14, also the photo recce mission was could be fulfilled by the Tomcats TARPS pod which came into service in 1981. While the VFP squadrons remained in service until the mid-80s the heavy photo recce squadrons was being phased out of service in the late 70s, partially due to the fact that their mission was being replaced by the TARPS pods but also due to the size of the aircraft they were flying. The [...]

Aussie Pig !

February 7th, 2018|4 Comments

It´s been way too long since my last F-111 and i thought it was about time to do something about that. So here´s a F-111C "Pig" of the RAAf as it appeared in 1986. This aircraft served with the 6 sqn. I´m working on establishing a RAAF section, but i only need to add a few more Aussie aircraft to my site before doing so. Which once should be a part of that section you think ? Here´s a few detail shots:
