Excellent model...congratulations!

A minor criticism is with the background patches: at the time Fresno had the "Six", it was an interceptor unit, and, as such, had the word "interceptor" in its unit names. So, the patches should have the word "interceptor" between fighter and squadron, and fighter and wing, e.g., "194th Fighter Interceptor Squadron, and 144th Fighter Interceptor Wing. Your patches are current patches, used by the CA ANG unit, locted in Fresno California (and which now has the F15B/C assigned to it). A small point, but for those of us who served in those units, it is important. Since that time, fighter squadrons/wings have dropped the use of the word interceptor, especially after major unit revisions, and the demise of SAC, TAC, and ADC; all units now falling under the ACC umbrella, IIRC.

Your F-106 is a beauty, and wonderful to see.

You and I both, I think the photography is well above average.

And the build is awesome!

It is corrected now, maybe you would have to refresh your browser.

Thank you all for the comments!

Whoops, now I see why he didn’t like the photography.
