Default CAVETE CATTAM (Beware the Cat)

The EC-121R Super Constellation


This Model depicts the EC-121R, number: 67-21473 station at Korat Royal Thai AFB supporting the "Operation Igloo White" circa 1971. This model is the Heller Warning Star kit modified to the EC-121R configuration by adding the various ECM, HF, VHF, and UHF antennas and deleting the top and bottom radomes. The flaps, flap wells and tires are resin parts from Fisher Models. The kit was painted with Testors Model-Master enamels and weather with chalk pastels. The figure, maintenance stand and fire extinguisher came from the Hasegawa accessory kits.











The base display consists of a medium size poster frame, a plotter print of the surveyor's plat of Korat RAFT, a patch for the 553rd Reconnaissance Wing, a USAF period patch, USAF pilot wings and a placard.




BEWARE THE CAT!

Fantastic, RJ.

A great build with a cool presentation on that map of Korat.
The edges between the camo colours look just perfect for my taste, not too sharp not too soft.
The list of references is also quite interesting.

Cheers, Stefan.

Very well done RJ. A subject you don't see done
very often. I built the Warning Star version for a friend many years ago
and I know what you had to work with.

Cheers,

Jerry
