Hi Mike, nice photos of Tomcats. Not sure how that follows directly though, or is it just tangental? Here's a link for the model magazine
It's volume 15 issue 1, the current issue at the moment.
Aha, just looked on the second page of google stuff re.'starfighter and the right stuff', and it's all over the film and all the astronauts did train in it so it's not really a HW reference, except in my head! see this page:
The first paragraph in the 'about Starfighters' section.
Any rumblings about a Hawkfest this year?
!!!Hooray for spring tour!!!
