Shouldn't need to use HDR, though that might work. Your best bet is to use layers in PS. Each pic is a layer and then you make both visible, but adjust the top layer's opacity so you can see through...

I was about to say whoever built that diorama did a great job, except the birds are all way too clean. Then I realised it was an actual photo!

Totally with you. And try finding any F-15 nozzles in the closed position...

Seems we're in better shape with F-14s and F-16s but there's still a general lack of options out there.
