    Hello

    Last adition for my 1/100 collection:

    The advanced supersonic naval prototype fighter Douglas F5D Skylancer

    This simple but beautiful model is a freebie from here: http://www.hoxity.de/papercraft/index.htm

    Is a Fiddlers Green style but more refinated in fitting and apresentation, great subject from 50 and 60's jet collection.

    Isn't that Neil Armstrong's flight test aircraft from AMES test center?
