Everybody knows Special Hobby just came out with a 1/48th scale T-2C Buckeye kit, and it appears to be a beauty, even though I haven't taken mine past opening the box and drooling. The kit's decals offer some really neat markings, but there are a few colorful Guppies around that they missed. Here's one to get you interested in building that kit, photographed at what used to be Bergstrom AFB in 1986; there are more on the blog.

says "Texas Sesquicentennial" on the top and "City of Kingsville" below. If you go to the blog and click on the photo you can enlarge it to the point where the writing is legible. Now then, are you ready to build a Guppy?

Best,

And I'll second that they should do a sheet with that one, in both scales.
Would love to do one of my ol' Matchbox Bucks in that livery.

with different decals and lacking the excellent walk-around DVD T.B. included with theirs.

Not an easy build but then that's the nature of limited run kits. In fact, if reports are to be believed, it's a bit of a turd. Still, it's the only 1/48 Buckeye in town. I'll take a crack at my T.B. kit someday, complete with Two Mikes cockpit and intakes.

It's a free site; no password or gimmickery is required. Can't imagine why that's happening, but try waiting a day or two and then hitting the link again. It's been my experience that most of the site's few glitches have ended up being self-healing!
