these look great, gonna have to get me them. Been outta the game for a few days with real life stuff, nice to come back to find these, as you know I have a thing for the stockers.
I'll need to get back on the Comet, still a few to do/finish. I'll be in touch after I get some house-keeping/catching up done.
I like how you enhanced the corrogation on the wings and fuselage Ed. Ads depth to this old glory.
Jeesh travel was slow back in them days. Imagine getting caught in some heavy thunder squalls at night in that thing trying to get your passengers to their destination. Want to feel disorientation, crank up heavy thunderstorms at night and fly her with those few instruments. Put her up there about 6,000 ft. What a ride!
They didn't have satelite weather and radar back in those days to warn of bad weather. I guess the best defense was to be a good navigator, know where your airports are at all times, and duck into the nearest airport when you encountered a long stormy squall line at night. Still I bet there were some that got caught up in them.
Thanks for the Maddux, I see a couple more I like too!
