Looks nice.

Wasn't happy with the color. Too blue. Left wing is new color. Much better. Gloss or semigloss Krylon will make it good.

Boy, do I remember that.
Don C, Comment for image # 3887718 Jun 17 18:16
Thanks guys. I thought it might be too blue.

I saw the Thunder Birds flying F100's at Biggin Hill in the UK in (I think) 1957? Spoke to one of the pilots, he did a slow roll for us cadets,low, over the airfield when they departed! Great day for us.

Living in San Diego I've had the opportunity to see the Blues several times at Miramar. Skyhawks, F4's, and the F18...A few years back they were unable to do the Miramar show so the Thunderbirds filled in. They were very good. The Canadian Snowbirds are highly polished and precise too. Precision team aerobatic flying is incredible to see in person.

I saw the Blue Angles when they flew Skyhawks. Thrilling! Also got to listen to pilots as they stood by their planes.

Good looking jet - paint looks right to me

Yep. They would dive back down at each other. They crossed with in 100 yards of us. The boat shook as they went by. I also think it was called the Cleveland Air Races, not Air Show. We were out there all day with a pylon judge.

Looks beautiful, Don. I can't wait to see it finished!
David Duckett, Comment for image # 3887716 Jun 17 23:44
Looks fine. Nice finish, too!!

Color check. Look OK?

Cockpit parts and tail hook.

Is this it, Huey?

Think I have a picture of it, but having the same problem getting it to post. Back then I was using a Kodak box camera with 620 Kodachrome. Shutter speed = very slow and the color has deteriorated. If I can figure it out again, I'l post it.

I have never seen them.
Huey V77, Comment for image # 3886916 Jun 17 11:40
Have you ever seen the Snowbirds perform? I think they're the best.
Huey V77, Comment for image # 3886816 Jun 17 11:38
1965 at the Cleveland Airshow I was on a 35' Christcraft on pylon #1. I watched the Thunder Birds perform in F100's. One monuver they crossed 100 yards from us after the bomb burst. Unforgettable.

I have seen the Thunderbirds and Blue Angels several times over the years and while both are incredible, I think the Blue Angels are more impressive.

These guys were friendlier.
