Book of Inspiration.

So I just finished reading Viper Pilot: A Memoir of Air Combat. Written by Dan Hampton, it tells of his career in the United States Air Force. Viper Pilot is one of those “can’t put it down” books. As an avid reader on all things military, it was a captivating glimpse into the life of an accomplished F-16CJ pilot.
After reading this book, I couldn’t help but to dig out one of my F-16’s and start building it. I am currently working on Academy’s 1/72 F-16C “Air National Guard” kit. I plan on building it straight from the box with the exception of photo etched seat belts. Also, I purchased a set of Two Bobs decals representing the Fighter Weapons School. I am about a third done with it and I must say it has been an easy build so far.

  1. If you’ve not read it, I recommend a book called ‘Chickenhawk’ by Robert Mason – the story of a chopper pilot in the Vietnam War. it’s a great read.
