    I'm worried this thread could get out of control with all the contrasting opinions. Please keep this thread civil and respect each others opinions!!

    Abort this mission men, save it for another time! I got all riled up when I saw the size of the B36 that I posted before searching, that's all.
    The Goblin, anyone remember a motorized Monogram model of the Goblin? My brother had one, it had decals that read" Air Farce" IIRC. Sat on a sprung stand and it would bob up and down. Oh here ya go. New Page 0

    Leave it to the US Air Force to steal the name of a truly innovative navy fighter aircraft. This is the true flapjack all others are imitations.

    The wings did flap up and down. And I remember the machine guns chugged away in reciprocating style.

    Don't forget this, the most deadly foe of the Flapjack, unfortunately the prototype was used by General Patton on his own stack of flapjacks
