Photo of the Week

Model Airplane News - - AIRWAVES -

Our Photo of the Week con­tin­ues to be very pop­u­lar and many of our fol­low­ers on Face­book take the time to com­ment on the model, the photo, or the full-size air­craft that it was mod­eled after. Re­cently, we shared a photo taken by Scott McClurg at the 2015 War­birds Over Delaware gi­ant-scale fly-in. This gi­ant-scale, tur­binepow­ered T-33 Shoot­ing Star is the work of Paul LeTourneau, who cre­ated the re­al­is­tic nat­u­ral metal fin­ish, which re­ally makes it come alive. Here are just a few of your com­ments.

Roger Smith: It’s painted in the col­ors of a T-33 based at Royal Air Force Bent­wa­ters, Suf­folk, Eng­land, with the 81st Tac­ti­cal Fighter Wing. I ac­tu­ally sat in one of these with the same mark­ings.

Tom Bird: I got to fly in the back seat of one of these (full size, of course) when I was at ROTC sum­mer camp.

Im­ran Sharif: A mas­ter­piece!

Chad As­mus: Hey, my friend, Paul LeTourneau, you made the big leagues!

Pe­ter Mal­chione: Ex­cel­lent jet, ex­cel­lent photo.

Aaron Ball­wich: I am play­ing around with elec­tric ducted fans and sure wish some­one would come out with an elec­tric-pow­ered T-33—any size!
