I'm turning to IPMS Fresno for help with a build project to start in January. I've already tried contacting the 144th Figher Wing PAO (email and snail mail) and I have not received a response (two weeks now).

So I'm stuck.

I'm planning on building a 1/32nd scale F-106A and a 1/32nd scale T-33 in early '80s 194th Figher Squadron (Calif Air Guard) colors. Does anyone in the chapter have contacts that can advise me on finishing the markings (pilot and crew chief names on a/c especially by tail number). I already have the tail numbers of each F-106 that served with the 194th. Next issue is if the 194th even had a T-33 assigned. The third, if one was assigned, is its tail number.

I'm interested in this build because I lived in Fresno years ago near the airport and I used to watch 194th aircraft tak off.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Jim Starling
