#264 is a great intake shot of the F/A-18. Note the two vortex generators halfway down the inlet. Also, a second boundary layer splitter plate behind the primary one.

John, You should publish a book of your images, but put them all on disk and market it to scale modellers as the best reference material around.

God, I would buy one at the drop of a hat. !!!

Kerry that would be a fun project. I have lots more aircraft and airshow stuff on photo prints I took. I am thinking of scanning them in and post them but need to get more organize first.

Hi John, I used to live in Rockledge and worked in Titusville, (Parrish Med. Center) and was a member of IPMS Space Coast. Nice pics. Thanks Gary

Gary HI, WOW, it's been a wile and I do remember you. It's been some time. I have been away from Florida for 5 years now. I do miss all of our club meetings and the models shows around the state. It was some very good times. The club seen here in Pittsburgh is nice but not as active as in Space Coast. I was club president when I left and several club members have passed away. Gary are you still building and in a club? It's nice to know someone on scalemates who can relate to some of the Air show photos posted here so far. I will post some from Patrick Air Force Base Air Shows. There are a few here like the F-117 and the F/A-18C. Just got to find them.

Hi John, YES Spacecoast is a great club to have belonged to. I live in GA now about 30 min west of Athens out in the sticks. No club out here, but still building. Currently trying to finnish Monograms B-17G kit. I bought it in the hobby shop that used to be on Merritt Island around 18-20 yrs ago. Gary
