    I've been called much worse than being a "show off" so forgive me for being
    a show-off!

    Glad you like my RAF display, btw...thanks!

    Thanks for the update Av8torJoe!! Loving the white F117. That and the F14 series were my favorites growing up. I was lucky to see both at an airshow just after Operation Desert Storm. Seeing your collection is always amazing. I recently went to the National Museum of the USAF at Wright Patterson AFB. And I can say your collection would fit right in, if not better than some of the displays.

    I have to agree with Pham about the Wright-Pat comparison. I think it is most fitting. More amazing, because you have everything right there.

    I've seen a few big collections in my time, but yours is probably the best organized and most tastefully laid out. Leaves me grinning, every time I look thru it.

    Re: Show Us Your 1:1 Military Hardware Collection

    These are my "old school" vintage USAF 1950's era P-series flight helmets. These were manufactured even before I was born and remarkably in very excellent condition for they're age. I will eventually gather all my 1950's era fighter jets from Skymax, Falcon Models and Hobby Master and do a photo shoot...

    It wouldn't be complete so I just added a picture of George Preddy, my favorite ACE, to the lineup...




    Now my fully completed display...

    I love the P-61 Black Widow - a night fighter combat aircraft developed
    by the Northrop company during WWII.

    Beautiful aircraft, and also one of my favorites!

    The gentleman I previously worked for had been the lead engineer on the Black Widows flight controls, specifically the wing spoilers. Neat to see his pencil on velum calculations of linkage ratios and to hear his stories of one test pilots misuse of a P-61.

    Thanx for sharing your neato toys with the rest of us!

    Thanks Russcal! The P-61 was "state of the art" design gun platform which had it's dorsal mounted turret array of .50 cal guns remotely controlled & coupled with it's nose radar dish which is similar in function with the r/c turrets on the B-29 Superfortress. It's also a huge fighter but according to the pilots who flew these it had great ease in handling capability and manuevrability, it even outperformed the British de Havilland Mosquito in every flight characteristic. These were practically the original 'Stealth' fighter of it's day!

    From my eclectic aviation collection is the typical and iconic "Cold War"
    ex-Soviet MiG Driver flight helmet ensemble: Zsh-3 + KM-32 Oxygen Mask setup.

    4th picture are my 1/48th scale Franklin Mint MiG-15 & 17 die cast models.
