    I loved F-14 Tomcat. Bought some models but no time and no skill to assemble them. Got some ready assembled Cast iron models instead.

    This plane is war proven I believe and it shot down MIGs in one of the real ops.

    It's got to be the B-17G Flying Fortress. The way it bristled with anything up to 14 0.5 calibre machine guns was pretty impressive stuff.

    My fav are:
    Su-27 Flanker family of jet fighters.
    Including the S-37 Berkoot (which looks like a YF-19 from Macross Plus)
    and SU-35 vectored thrust flankers. You should see the SU-35 in action, does things that no other fighter jets can do. Plus its helmet mounted targetting systems that can fire missles at almost 90 degrees off center. Its almost sci-fi.

    Oh, loved tomcats too. Too bad they decided to cancel it and bought the super fat hornets.

    Hahaha! Yes, the blue thunder.
    Modified from a Aerospatiale Gazelle.
    Chosen over the Bell 222 becoz the Gazelle was much faster.
    Able to shoot down F-16 with its 20mm gatling guns.
    Plus whisper mode.


    They don't make movies like this anymore.
