    One model I would love to have is the C-141A model. Not that bloated B model, but the original short A model. In my fuels portion of my AF career, I refueled every one of them at least once while a Combat Pacer.

    But the one bird I remember most, is the Hanoi Taxi. It will soon retire to a place of honor. Read the story at http://www.af.mil/news/story.asp?storyID=123019935

    If anyone wants to design a model of a C-141A, I have not only a variety of photos of the Hanoi Taxi, but some good drawings of the A model with cross sections. Contact me through Private Message.

    Count on me for a sale.......... two if it will get this Great Bird Big modeled. Seems like it would be able to do both versions with very little problem.

    I'd like to see the Starlifter as well, but then I'm a fan of just about anything Lockheed built, the wobblin goblin notwithstanding.

    The CAF was offered 10 or 20 of the beasts during the 70's for a buck each, the idiots in power turned it down.

    I'd buy one!

    It is an aircraft I would like to see modeled, too.
