    I just checked out your drawings. Very nice work. I have been an artist all my life and I can tell you, you are very talented. I hope you use these talents professionally. Your design turned out well. Interesting you said you have problems with color perception. I have the same problem. People can't figre out how I can be an artist and have difficulty differenciating certain colors. For me it is shades of gray and blue.

    Anyway keep up the good work.

    Anyway I just wanted to tell you h

    I'm done!

    I just finished mounting the Cougar on the pedestal. As I did this I had this crazy vision: Design and build ALL Blue Angel aircraft from 1946 to the present. They would all be the same level of detail as this one (simple enough for anyone to build), and all of them mounted on the same pedestal!

    Anyway, I think that would be really unique and very cool.

    Enjoy the photos... Chris will be posting it on ecardmodels.com as soon as I come up with a set of assembly instructions and a sheet of "tails" with all the blue angel numbers so that you could build all of them if you wanted to! :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Thanks for following the design and build.

    Wow! Ken!! :thumb:

    On the Blue Angels from conception until now Rob46 (an ex-Blue Angel ground crew) did that with FG models and Kancho's F-11F. I'm sure if you need an info I can get it from him. And since they flew the Panther to you have already got a leg up so to speak!:wave:

    Inquiring minds want to know............... How do you have the model on the pedestal?

    I guess I could wait and see when I buy the model.......... but really no I want to know now! sign1

    Tim Hinds.......... Thanks for the kind words.......... no this is just a hobby.



    I have drawn a Cougar... it's on my site under the jets button......... it's a photo bird not a Blue Angel..........

    Ken Just got my copy and I must say it's beautimus :D I really should up-grade from dial up though (big file :p ).

    Only $3.00, you should've asked for more ;) Not complaining but it's worth more than that :D

    Thanks for the great model. Really looking forward to getting your Panther.
