Hi All,

I just want to say a big Congrats to Barry and Scott for displaying the Cats at Top Gun this year.
A special Congrats goes to Barry for making the final cut on the Sunday of TG, and to think Barry only just received his cat from me 10 days before the Competition, So to get the final install and check over done ,then test fly her, and then take the long drive down from Texas to Florida and enter Butch into the show takes allot of doing, Very well done Barry, Top Man Award goes to you.

Here are some Pics I have managed to find and scrounge of the Cats At TG, if any of you have any more pics please post up.

And not forgetting Mr Top Buns Greg Foushi!!!! another Big Congrats for taking Second Position with your Loverly LA7, well done MR Buns!!!

Cheers GB

graham, it could not have been done without you. the model flew like a champ. all i did was gas her up, top off the batteries and fly. never did anything to her but check the prop and rocker arms. it is an extremely great flying model. i was hoping to finish higher. some things just dont go your way. i flew every day 3rd up after lunch. good cross wind by then. and each day was worse. i am not saying a crazy crosswind, but enough. the morning guys didnt have one. the field wasnt inverted either. my morning practice rounds were like flying in a vacuum. well maybe next year i wil draw a morning slot. many thanks on a premium build. man, scott's was the bomb too. barry

Scott,wished I coulda been there to see the 2 of you guys fly. Nothing like a seldom modeled warird to get the juices flowing. So were they the "belle of the ball" or were there some other unusual or seldommodeled eye catchers there?

Top Gun is all about eye catching models! Grahams work on these two beauties got plenty of attention. He did such a great job! thanks again "G".
I would say to anyone that mighht be interested "G" doing work for them to get in line quickly. He has been getting quite a lot of inquiries since Top Gun and deservedly so.

That all metal finish he painted on mine is just spectacular. that is of course if you like that sort of thing... I sure as heck do and so did a gillion others!

Round Engines rule,

Scott

LOL, this is funny. Affas is a good friend of mine Barry. He lives in the south so we dont often. It was funny to meet you two in here on the same matter. To Affa, i have flown a lot with Barry so i can tell some good stuff about that wildcat. In matter of fact, i NEEED to get back to houston soon. You should join me. Barry will show us a round for a super time. There was a question about a good warbird show to go to abroad (håvard mentioned). I suggest we all go to bomber field together, it is a fantastic place.

Hi all,
Hoping you can help,we are looking for some info on a wildcat a friend is building,The Wildcat he is doing was piloted by Joe Foss. It will hang in a new wing of Joe Foss Field (KFSD) in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
Looking for maintenance marking positions, now I did have the lay out for them but they were on my last PC which went **** Up!!!
Any Help would be much appreciated.

Cheers Graham

Hi Barry,
Way cool,so your friends with Harry Conick Jr,he has a great voice,next time am over you will need to introduce me to him!!!
No I did not work direct on the film but I ended up with good selection of parts,still have some documentation on the B17S made and used in the film.
I can get a Fuse made up from the original Memphis Belle molds, they are 1/6 scale so they are just right for all the BBI crew.

Cheers Graham

You go Barry,

I think it would be great if you would bring "Harry" to TG 2013 and have your friend do a little song or two for us.

I know the girls would really appreciate it too. Once they find out you're friends with H. C. JR. you won't be able to keep them off of you!

Wish I was friends with guys like that.

Hi Graham,
I just placed an order with Gotz Vogelsang for one of these Awesome planes. If you have any pointers on the build of this bird it would be much appreciated if you could pass the info on.
I have been wanting one of these for a few years now and so the time and the price was right for me to order it.

I can't wait for it to arrive so i can begin building it!!!!!!

Color scheme is going to be modeled after this one.
