Very very nice Rach!
I like the Remove Before Flight Tags!
Are these pre made or did you make them yourself?

Cheers, they're decals. Slice open a polybag and wrap the decal over the edge (making sure it lines up) then cut out and glue in place ;-)

Thought you might be interested in these:
Chelveston 1956 - 1962
The first B47's of the Strategic Air Command arrived in May 1956 as part of the 10th Tactical Reconnaissance Wing. These were jet bombers which carried nuclear weapons, and were maintained on a 24 hours alert status as part of the NATO response to the Warsaw Pact. In August 1959, Boeing RB-66 reconnaissance jets joined the Chelveston air base. These were electronic counter measures versions of the B-66 bomber, and they stayed at the base until August 1962.

The T-33 was a squadron hack.

Terrific stuff Ratch and interesting background too. Did you have to make your own decals to get the markings you wanted?

Cheers Daz, wot the kitchen :ha: The Destroyer was OOB with the supplied decals and the other two I had bought generic codes to make up the correct serials and I had some 10th TRW emblems in decals too. These were used with the kit stars'n'bars and USAF lettering. HTH
