Greetings, I'm posting a few pictures of my recently completed Model, a 1/32 scale Grumman Wildcat.


Enjoy!
Adam :)



The model has seemed to turn out alright though in the end.

How does one put quotes right by their pictures. I can't seem to do it. I have to put all the descripitions on the top.

I am not sure what you mean by writing near the photos...  sorry.   :-[

Here's one of a P-3 airtanker popping over the ridge, on final, to make his downhill drop.  (2004).

You need photoshop or a similar program to edit the photo before posting it.  Nice job on the model.  I envy your weathering skill.   ::bow::

Thanks Guys ::bow::

I have more on the way. My flight instructor wants to see an F-15 next, so once I'm done the 2 I'm working on, it'll be the next one. But if anyone wants something built and photograhped, lemme know.

Soccer Mom, that is such a cool picture. If I ever get commercial, I'd love to do fire bombing.

Well, since the P-3 is a pretty bird we all like to admire, here's one of my favorites....  This is Tanker 22 on a drop.

Here is a sister P-3.  Tanker 26 crashed in 2005 on a training mission, killing the 3 pilots aboard. 

May they rest in Peace.

Hey Soccermom, ever consider trying aviation photography for a living? You're really good at it ::angel::

Okay, no airplane this time.  This is one of many beautiful waterfalls in Litchfield National Park, Northern Territory, Australia.  This was taken about a year ago, during the wet season.  The springs coming out of the ground were WARM -- it was such a shock to wade through streams and NOT have the water be cold!  The huge pool at the base of this falls was cordoned off limits to hikers, because of the crocodile threat.  What a gorgeous place....
