CAVETE CATTAM (Beware the Cat)

The EC-121R Super Constellation


This Model depicts the EC-121R, number: 67-21473 stationed at Korat Royal Thai AFB supporting the "Operation Igloo White" circa 1971. This model is the Heller Warning Star kit modified to the EC-121R configuration by adding the various ECM, HF, VHF, and UHF antennas and deleting the top and bottom radomes.   The flaps, flap wells and tires are resin parts from Fisher Models. The kit was painted with Testors Model-Master enamels and weather with chalk pastels. The figure, maintenance stand and fire extinguisher came from Hasegawa accessory kits.

 

 




The base display consists of a medium size poster frame, a plotter print of the surveyor's  plat of Korat RAFB, a patch for the 553rd Reconnaissance Wing, a USAF period patch, USAF pilot wings and a placard.




BEWARE THE CAT!
