Those are some good looking Tweety Birds Peter! I used to enjoy watch those play the role of Frogfoots during our rotations at Ft Irwin NTC. They wore the same scheme as your Howard AFB build.

Very cool. I remember building a model of that aircraft when I was young, around 10-12 or so, so late 60's early 70's. I'm not sure whose kit it was tho. I'd like to do one with US markings.

Hasegawa did a 1/72 kit back then.

Again showing that these old monogram/Revell kits can be built into beautiful aircraft. Just something about the Dragonfly I love.
March as one, Don't look back

Unleash hell! Do not repent! Warfare grants us no lament
Let your weapons slash and tear This is no place for fear
Hold the lines! Move as one! In unity our victory's won
Our shields will form a mighty wall
United we shall never fall

I vaguely remember getting it thru a mail model club thing of some sort but my memory isn't clear on it. A very hazy memory.
