Wow!!  Gosh guys.  I''m really honored by all this attention from you and glad you all benefited from them.  That little tube inside the intake on the F-107 is also something that I often wondered myself.  It's part of the reason why I took those pictures in the first place.  With regards to joshing around:  Bob, I've got about half of those aircraft you listed (believe it or not)  Cool  Glad you liked the SB2C.  I was intrigued myself the way the instruments were arranged such that the pilot could view them without having to duck his head to look at them squared-on; or the wind deflector on the rear sliding canopy for the gunner.  Lots of details that people overlook.  Many times I also try to aim the camera straight-on so as to help the viewer see exactly how the accessory or fuselage is shaped for documentation purposes and for modeling the details. Bob, Mike (NB), Tom and fellow modelers, I too share your passion for the Golden Age of air racing.  It was a major reason why I posted them.  Again, thank you so much.  Your words will encourage me to soar with eagles .....  Smiley  Gary (Skye)

Gary - I've spent many hours in awe of your collection and must say you deserve a great deal of credit for having and sharing your incredible collection. If these photos don't inspire, perhaps nothing will. Your air racing collection is very detailed and thank you for those as well.

I really appreciate the pictures of the Supermarine Stranraer that Gary has posted. This was one of the planes my dad worked in as Wireless Operator in the 40's. It was a really big boat alright.
Thanks Gary,

Gary,
The latest pictures are fantastic.  The interior shots of the Avro Shackleton were outstanding.  I was interested in the upholstery of the seating on the various stations inside.  I guess this speaks of the length of mission the Shackleton was designed to fulfill.  Thanks again for the great shots.

Gary, thanks for the photos of:
Travel Air Mystery Racer and
the Keith Rider R-6
Eight
Ball
, these are my favorite golden age racing airplanes. Love the detail and I really wonder what it was like to fly one of these in those exciting days of 1930's aviation.

After a little research and not finding anything specifically addressing this small curved tube, I think it might be part of this: The aircraft's most distinguishing feature is its dorsal-mounted variable-area inlet duct (VAID). While the VAID was at the time a system unique to the F-107A, it is now considered to be an early form of variable geometry intake ramp which automatically controlled the amount of air fed to the jet engine.

Just a guess...but I'd think it was some kind of pito tube.  Ok Gary what is it.

Gary, I just took a look at your latest posts on the F100 and F107. What is the tube looking device at the opening of the inlet on the F107?

Tom, just thinking that I would give Gary a choice of airplanes that he wanted to post. No pressure or pushing, I just went with your post stating;

quote"Just talked with Gary and he said if anyone wanted a particular aircraft to be posted" quote

SO! I just put some up, I know that what Gary has posted has been a job to post and he wanted to know what anyone was particularly interested in. Any one aircraft would be a prize to have. My admiration goes out to Gary for all of the great photos and his efforts to share with the rest here.

Great Job Gary Smiley
