Answers to Frequently Asked Questions
I currently have a backlog of pictures to add to the site (about 500). I'll be updating a few every week.
Sure, I'm always looking for images to add to my personal collection. Please note, however, that I only post pictures on my web page that I have taken.
I build plastic models of aircraft. The detail images are for model builders who may not have access to source materials for detailing their models.
The older photos were taken using a 'fire-and-forget' Canon Snappy automatic 35MM camera with 400 speed Kodak film. I now use a Canon RebelG 35mm with Kodak 800 speed film, a Nikon 885 digital camera, and a Canon G2 digital camera.
In the United States:
1. U.S. Air Force Museum in Dayton, OH
2. Planes of Fame Museum in Chino, CA
3. Air & Space Museum/Garber Restoration facility in Washington, D.C. (When they get the Dulles Annex done this could be the best!)
1. Duxford Air Museum
2. RAF Museum
1. Luftwaffe Museum in Berlin/Gatow
Let me know about it. Some of the naming I've done has been for a reason, some has been done as a best guess. Please note that for WWII aircraft my copy of Jane's Aircraft of World War II is the final authority.
No, it's not. The A-12 was an early variant of the SR-71. The YF-12 was an interceptor (!!) version of the A-12.
The A-12 is on the aircraft carrier Intrepid, which has been converted into museum in New York City, NY. The A-12/YF-12/SR-71 variants HAVE NEVER operated from aircraft carriers and this probably is the only one that has been on one.
FW-190, F-14, SR-71/YF-12, Spitfire, P-51, Curtis P-6E "Hawk", ME-262, P-38, A-10, F-104, F-4. I like a lot of aircraft. Of course, I've seen over a thousand different types.
Sorry, really don't care for them that much.
