I decided to make a "what if" model. What if after the Korean War, the Dept Of Defense and the State Dept decided it wouldn't be worth the effort to bring back home all the older/obsolete machines. They decided to gift them to Taiwan to discourage Communist China from invading. 

I didn't add too much extra except for the hydraulics for the gear doors. Thanks to John Mark Nickelson and Lee Fogel for the decals.
