The last few weeks has seen the effects of COVID-19 spread to affect us all, with the latest news for our hobby being the cancellation of the Cosford show and further cancellations likely. I doubt any of us have seen this kind of event in our lifetimes, and 2020 will certainly go down in history as a turning point for society.

Whilst we may lose the ability to get together to show our creations or just to chat, it doesn't stop us getting on with building models, and our Facebook group is there for you to share your work, and to keep in touch with fellow modellers! And if you'd like to feature your USAF build on here, please drop us a note through Facebook!

Keep safe everyone!

With the inspiration of recent posts on the SIG website regarding the Misty FAC Hun, Chuck has shared his photos of the historically significant Hun 'F which is currently displayed at the USAF Academy in Colorado Springs.  The plaque photo covers the specifics – then Maj Robbie Reisner, later a senior AF POW in the Viet Nam wargames - previously flew this aircraft to a new world record replicating/updating the thirtieth anniversary of Charles Lindbergh’s flight across the Atlantic.

Following the war, the aircraft found its way to the Colorado ANG and eventually came to rest in front of the Air Force Academy Prep School.  I apologize in advance for the AFA’s erratic attempt at accurate SEA markings, but hope you find the aircraft of interest for what it represents!
