the ufo into the monument gave me the chuckles, looks like an amazing trip.
as for the museum holding on to one's heritage no matter how big or small is to be respected in my book! i'd love to be able to stand below the corsair from the ceiling... it's like a kids room but in 1/1 scale. 😄
thank you very much for posting the pix John. 👍

Michael, Murad much thanks. Murad I am glad you liked the UFO into the Washington Monument, it is one of my entries based on an 1956 movie "Earth vs Flying Saucers"

Thx for sharing, those Marine 1:1 scale dios are great. Also Choctaw pics made me think that one in dark green / light green what-if camo would look lovely😉 P.S. Could anybody confirm the F-15I tail marking on pic 100 to be real? Or is it just another what-if scheme? Did some googling, but couldn't find ny proof for that one, but it looks interesting...

For the next few weeks, I live a few miles from this museum. If you want a photo of something, speak up and I'll try to share it here. The offer runs through the end of May. Beyond that, I am gone.

If you are talking about the pics of LN-19, that is a real scheme,,,,,,,because it is a solid green color in standard Marine helo color. Look at the wall, you can see shadows and highlights all over the room, from the building's overhead windows. Now, I agree completely if you meant that those shadows inspire a Whif of a two-tone camo.

Indeed, this is exactly what I meant 🙂
