Thanks. I kind of forgot about this. It is almost what I am looking for. F-80 is my goal, T-33 is close. A lot of work goes into one of these.
If it were in USAF marking, I would be more interested.

I have been building and flying radio controlled aircraft for twenty years. It's a fun hobby. 8)

I got out of modeling years ago. The large scale jets such as BVM and Skymaster have gotten my attention. Would love to have an F-80 or T-33 in USAF markings as a reminder of the good old 40's 50's Jets.

Still looking for giant scale model of F-80C Shooting Star for ANG display.
Will consider trading my NOS M-1 BOMBLIFT for the right model.

Rare M-1 Bomb Lift, am sure that the word has to get out, and I haven't really tried all that much.. We'll see what next Spring or Summer brings. There is no problem selling an M-1 Bomb Lift in perfect condition ready to use on a P-51. I have a waiting list should I choose to do that.
