Thank you for all the support and I look forward to more of the BVM PNP aircraft!

Greg Alderman recently attended the Toledo Weak Signals Show Static Competition with his 1:5.5 F-18 PNP.  The F-18 came in 1st place in the "Military Sport Scale" category, Greg also received the "People’s Choice" award that was selected by the attendees at the show. Greg wanted Jenni and Addi in the picture since without Jenni’s support Greg certainly would not be doing this! And Addi, well she is in the picture since she is always with them at events and when flying!

Greg's F-18 is painted in the VMFA-115 “Silver Eagles” Patriot scheme normally flown by the Squadron Commander. It has 2 Jet Central Cheetah 160 turbines and the Jeti Duplex Radio.
