Wow that's cool!

Here it is. I popped it out of the frame and found a little suprise on the back of the photo. Official markings with a number on the photo. I wish the date had been filled out. That would have been even better. Hope you enjoy! Once I blew it up the detail is amazing. I can't believe the quality of the picture. I am not exactly sure where the camera was located or how it was able to take such an amazing picture.



Did a quick search and came up with the same picture!

I wonder if the one I have is the original? That would be way awesome. Says it was taken by George Holt from a chase aircraft. There is also another one from inside the tanker looking back at the plane. Actually on a closer look it is very similar, but not exactly the same. The angle is a little different. Looks like the chase plane was moving around a bit.

That is awesome!!!!

I always thought the Hustler looked like a airliner on steroids LOL. Very tube like fuselage, the windows in the front, and of course the engines hanging under the wings in pods.

LOL...Should I take from all the rescent chatter about the Hustler that people are waiting for me to finish it? Nice subtle hints everybody! I'll see what I can do in the NEAR future since someone else has been on me about finishing it so that he can do the CS on it

I would like some input from people on the CS for the B-47 Stratojet. I'm debating if I want to make the B-47 look real or like an RC with the addition of panel lines. MOST RC planes do not have panel lines and I personally think the plane looks good and like an RC the way it is. What do you think?? All the insignias minus the SAC emblems on the nose are made from scratch as usual for my models. I've spent way to much time already on the CS for this plane and am starting to get to the point where I just want it to be done with so that I can move on to other planes like the B-17, B-58, TBF-1 Avenger and RV6A

I prefer the RC look. Someone else can devote the time to making it look full scale.

Alright, well there's 4 votes for the RC look on the plane. Once I get the gear door pivots to co-operate I'll be able to finish up and release the plane. The aft gear doors aren't being nice, so they're taking a bit.

I'll throw my vote in for a more quality CS. A model is only half finished as far as I'm concerned without as much effort into the CS as you put into an EA. After all the CS is the first "Visual" or eye candy you see when you look at a model.

If you want someone else to do a better scheme later as some have mentioned.....why waste any time doing an original? Just release them all grey. Save the hassle on yourself.

ARTF Realflight Models?
That's not a bad ideal at all, that will force the community to pitch-in instead of always taking and complaining.
