Thanks realtime, hope you can find more.

P,
That is EXACTLY what I'm looking for! Now, the rear and starboard side. I doubt there was much going on the starboard side but.......
I think the rear port door had something sticking out of it, hi intensity light or whatever.

Wings are skinned, came out very nice. The outer panel didn't quite get compressed on the end of the LE so I used a little yellow glue and tape to glue it done. The LE will be cut off and replaced with 1/2" balsa. I have the ends flush sanded. Here are some shots of the starboard wing with the proper anhedral and wing joiner tube & socket. Sweet!
Now they need LE & TE. I work on them when I return.

It depends on if its a "Shadow" or a "Stinger" as to what is @ the Rear Port side doorway.One model had a flare launcher.While others had night vision optics.

Thanks Pinky! I saw that pic somewhere and forgot to bookmark it. The first one is a G model. Second one is perfect! Clears up a lot and the pics help too.
Man, lots of detail on this beast. I'll need to get crackin to have it done for Vegas. Probably be burning some midnight oil.

amazing how stressed the metal skin on that looks. J you have your work cut out for doing all those rivets. I'm sure she will turn out just how you want.

I don't know if it's anything similar to a B-52, but on the 52 the skin normally looks that way from the moment it rolls off the factory floor. The B-52's skin looks wrinkled when the aircraft is on the ground. In flight, the wrinkles disappear as the wing loading causes the wings and airframe to flex to in-flight configurations.

yeah...... I doubt those rivets get done. Every pic I see of the Boxcar shows the same oil canning on the fuse. Amazing. Poor things look like they were run hard and put up wet. So I guess if I have flaws in my FG fuse they will be scale. Maybe I shouldn't have sanded it so well?

Now I'm sorry, but that's just a little scary!

Welcome aboard Airborne, hope you enjoy the ride.

I'm in Illinois in 103 degree temps and really missing my air conditioned shop.

Nice work on the C119 john ! I see that your models are growing larger and larger, and can't help myself remembering your words about your "old eyes"... and realising my models are growing too...
The C119 remembers me an old project : The Nord 2501 Noratlas

Any known plans for the Nord? I used to jump out of these things during training. May well be a nice future "nostalgia" project.
