Default Alabama Guard history display

Have a High School friend who is a F-16 Driver in the Ala Guard and asked me to do a history build of the 187th Fighter Wing. Thru several outstanding guys here and at ARC I was able to gather all the models and decals for this build. Thanks Guys you all are rockstars. THe unit flew the RF-51, RF-80, RF-84, RF-4C, F-4D and presently the F-16C. I have pretty much finished the P-51 and now am working on the RF-80. It is the classic Monogram kit. I have sanded all the raised panel lines off and have built the camera nose with sheet plastic and Miliput after a conversation with "PIG" thanks bud it worked like a charm. I used a scanned copy of the new sword kit and sized it up and what do you guys think? I think it is pretty damn close just a little more sanding to get the contours set. Erick
