This is my latest project, a three-plane diorama of the 25th FIS flightline on Naha AB, Okinawa, circa 1958 (when I was there.).

This required the most modification---radome off and to the left, antenna removed, access panel removed from the right side and lying on the ground, new black box on the ground to be installed. That's me in the cockpit!

I built three of the Revell 1/48 scale F-86Ds with equipment and personnel.  All these tail numbers are authentic, planes I actually worked on.  I was fortunate to take 1st place at IPMS contest earlier this year.
