Default Step back in time!

I started with these:



Then these two:


Well I decided to step back in time, so here she is, ready to cover, the wonderful House of Balsa A-7 with a G-34 in the nose. It is designed to run with a .25, she should be a blast!



Anyone have any experience with this bird?

When you had a title of "step back in time" I thought great!, old timers... First picture and I'm thinking "what the f..." second picture "cool, I worked on F4's of VF151 and 161 on the Midway back in the 70's", third pic "yep was in a bunch of A7 squadrons, would be nice to see VA56 or VA66 on that...."

Experience with the HOB A7, sorry no.....
