Re: USAF Heavy Lifters

The Thor ICBM was scratched built. I used a Saturn second stage engine I had spare. The main body was a short length of tube and the cradle and the engine protection framework also scratch built.

USAF Heavy Lifters

Hi hope all is well with you all.
Just finished a couple of USAF heavy lifters. Both are the Roden kits. I opened the freight loading doors for the C-124 And made a load for it.
