I'm very excited! I've tried out this Alclad2 stuff. It's brilliant!!!
Now I want to build a natural metal aircraft, so I've chosen the F-86. (Yes,
I *know* that I'm teetering on a slippery slope! :-) )
Anyroads... I'm not a big fan of special markings - I much prefer a plain
line jet. I'm also not a fan of huge flashy personal markings. Small
discreet ones I can handle, but when they are massive great big pictures on
the side of a jet, I get a bit turned off by them.
The problem is that every Korean War F-86 decal sheet has these great big
personal markings. I guess they must be popular... ;-)
So... how likely is it that these aircraft would have flown missions
*after* the squadron markings were applied, but *before* the personal
markings were applied? The aircraft I'm thinking of in particular is
F-86E-10 51-2834, 335 FIS/ 2 FIW, flown by Captain Clifford D Jolley. Did
it ever fly without that hideous skull and crossbones on the fuselage side?
