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....

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...
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 ;^)
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
They haven't moved yet...
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!
