I decided to start posting some of my other models, since none of my auto subjects are done, and just showing I can do more.  I will build anything other then ships.  While I like and respect ships, and ship builders they are just not me.  Though I wouldn't be against maybe doing an AC or two or a few subs.  Anyhow this is Academy's kit straight out of the box.  I did build a specific aircraft, but I don't remember which one it is.  The base and stand are built from tubing and a trophy.

Looks good.  It's from the 79th Fighter Squadron based at Shaw AFB in South Carolina.

 

Is that plane flying without a pilot?

Yup no pilot.

 

Believe it or not this was a weekend build.  Started Friday evening after work, finished late on a Sunday night.

It was not.  At the time I wanted some nice but inexpensive shelf models I could build quickly.

 

Cheap they were too I was scrounging every dime and saving it for a move.  However I had to keep my sanity and had nothing else to do.
