I almost got rid of all my stuff. But I still have a bunch of basic modelling tools left, because I just can't bear to part with them. And so it happens that a retiring AF pal of mine knows a guy. This guy is also retiring. He's a big Wild Weasel fan, so my buddy wants to present him with some special retirement presents. So he calls me.
"Hey, you know anything about Wild Weasels?"
"Sure - well, a little."
"Can you do a couple of models in a big scale?"
"I suppose - how big?"
"As big as you can get a Vietnam-era and modern-era Wild Weasel plane in."
I told him I'd get back to him on this. It isn't an IPMS show project
- an OOB + paint and decal. No AMS worries, just a good job in the right colors and markings.
My problem - I never had any WW reference materials, and I don't know where to start on that. I'd like to do a 1/32nd Thud and F4 project, but I'd need to have some sort of reference work in order to procure the correct models, paint and decals. Anyone know of a good book/website that can get me started in the wide, wild world of Wild Weasels?
