What we have here is a collection of early jets, US Navy ones at that. Except the eggs thrown into the fora just for giggles, when i look at these i see lots of different looking designs and paintjobs, which i find it cool because with modern equipment it’s more or less the same. I mean aerodynamics is a science, math don’t lie (except statistics) so eventually the designs will be similar for a given job. Then there is also the colorimetry side of science, coupled with how human brain is functioning in terms of visual perception, there ya go, we’ll end up with grey jets!

That’s why the post ww2 era until Robert McNamara’s cost reduction and defense project consolidations is going to look very interesting in the display cabinet, at least different or rather unique against the next jet in terms of designs and colors as can be seen here, and remember this is just a dent, there are even more interesting stuff awaiting to be built, hopefully…
