I love the Starlifter! When we first moved into our house back in '85 they were still flying white tops out of Maguire AFB. They soon switched over to lizard and then finally went out of service in AMC gray. But I aways thought they looked best in this scheme. Beautiful job on that C-141A Pat! I'l bet those thin stripes were a real treat to get straight! You did it proud! I have the 1/144 Roden kit awaiting its turn on my bench. Gonna do it as a Maguire white top!

Thanks, Tory. Under two layers of gloss coat, the decals were just barely usable. Those walkway stripes? You can guess how much fun. I think Caracal does a 1/144th comprehensive sheet. This one is a "don't look at me too closely" kind of model. It IS a cool subject, though.

Very nice build Pat! I always liked that little kit from DML / Dragon.

Thanks, Doug!
