Hopefully they do an equally nice job on their upcoming 1/72nd C-17. It would be nice if a 1/72nd C-141 was next!

Thanks for posting the review Fred.

Yes it took me a little longer writing this review than usual. I spent a couple of evenings watching the Youtube films of the Swiss AF Mirage IIIS/RS playing around in the Alps. Purely for research purposes you will understand . Unfortunately I then gravitated onto F/A-18's, Patrouille Suisse in their F-5's, Pumas, Hunters, Vampires, etc, etc...
All well worth watching, particularly the film of the aircraft hangars built into the mountains.

The first image of the C-17 on their Facebook page looks promising Neil.
