My F-4J is pissed

Hi all,
I'm currently finishing up the Trumpeter SA-2 w/launcher. Which is,
BTW, a great quick-build. Reminds me of my youth, building the old
Renwal "Blueprint Series" kits. I distinctly remember the Hawk
missiles and the Skysweeper....
But the downside is, my F-4J keeps giving me dirty looks from his
shelf across the room. I doubt if he'll ever forgive me for bringing
such an abomination into the house....

Maybe that's why I never actually bought Airfix's kit when it came out - psychic pressure from the collection! Hmm, maybe that's why we can't stop buying kits!

Now there's an excuse worthy of "The National Enquirer". :-)

If the Phantom is equipped with any kind of air to ground weapon, you would do well to carefully examine all evidence before blaming the cat if the SA-2 suffers some inexplicable mishap just before completion.

Interesting theory, since it implies that kits desperately want to not get built. Considering the odds most of us have of ever building every kit in the stash, every new kit decreases the probability of any kit in there being built.
I'm sure there's some deep philisophical lessen in there somewhere...

Does the household ROE allow engagement of an uncompleted SAM site or is it like SEA where you often had to wait and let it shoot at you before you could roll-in? :^

One of the guys brought in a finished Trupmeter SA-2 to last night's IPMS meeting. He pointed out that the SA-2 has shot down more aircraft than any other surface-to-air missile. I then pointed out that this statement is not surprising. The reason for this is that most of the countries firing SA-2s were on the defensive (if you know what I mean ;^)

Hey, I finished mine this Monday. Check it out on alt.binaries.models.scale. There is a picture on it.

So now go and get a Trumpeter F-105G to hold the Phantom's hand in the face of a SAM :)

Time to build an F-4G or an Iron Hand A-7, or an EA-6B!

I have placed my 1/48 Mig-17 (the believed-it-was-Col.Tomb's-aircraft No. 3022) right beside the Cunningham/Driscoll F-4J. I should keep an eye on them - they might try to get at each others six... They haven't moved yet... See also

So build a cute little F-5 to divert its attention. Those macho types can't resist cute curves in A/C any more than in humans!
