    Nice pictures. An A7 Corsair, wow… beautiful airplane. Just like the Matador. So ugly, that it becomes beautiful.

    And ofcourse the Dutch build F50, also nice to see.

    Sawasdee khrap thaimilitary,
    congretulations to your blog, it’s hard to find information on the Thai armed forces – your blog is one of the best sources I’ve found so far!

    Do you hve any info on the status of the RTN’s Harriers (AV-8As)and A-7s? My understanding is the A-7s are grounded and will not fly again but some Harriers still operational.

    Cheers,

    Fan

  6. I am a military vehicle modeler in 1/35 scale. I would like to model a RTN Marine Corp V-150 as you have posted above. Do you have any other photos of this vehicle? I will not publish or use these photos for any use other than to build this model.

    Thank you,
