Here's some pictures of my original BVM T33. I just finished it after my father started it about 20 years ago! It is RAM 500 powered. It is painted in Klass Kote and modeled after Doug Matthew's full scale airshow T33. I've seen too many ANG orange and Thunderbird schemes, this was different!
Beautiful Shooting Start
Jake, and thanks for sharing this with BVM.
Lincoln Rossi sent these photos of his BVM T-33 in this bright and beautiful "Spirit of 76" scheme.

Kent Nogy campaigned his Electric VioFan 5012 powered T-33 at the Mesa Arizona event November 16-18, 2007. There were several EDF jets at this event, about 40% of the total entry. Kent was presented the pilot's choice "Best Electric Jet" and the club's judges award for the "Best Electric Performance".
The T-33 spans 80" and weighs 17.5 lbs. Fast passes and big loops were part of Kent's "T" Bird flight profile in the elevated desert air.
BVM's Metal-Kote Aluminum painted finish and
Pro-Mark's new solid
Aluminum rub-on rivets look great on this "Artic Scheme" T-33.
BVM Rep, Mark Taylor from Fresno, California built this "T" Bird
from a new A.F.S. kit and then applied Flight Metal for the finish. This
extremely realistic looking T-33 is powered by a JetCat P-70.
Mike Oberst from
Andrews, South Carolina recently logged the first few sorties on his brand new
turbine T-33. Here's a few excerpts from his letter - "Not having the benefit
of having any other "jetheads" close by to help, I was a litle apprehensive
about going on my own, but I shouldn't have been. This is a case where good
instructions and plans really paid off. A RAM 750F gets me airborne off our
grass strip with authority. I utilize the "crow" mixing as per your update on
landing, and it lands very nicely. The reason why I continue to buy exclusively
BVM is that in exchange for my bucks you guys have already done your homework.
Please keep up the good work."
Silver wings and white fuselage with orange trim make this T-33 very visible. We found only one black and white photo in an F-4 book to document this model. This is an easy and effective scheme utilizing ProMark epoxy ink transfers for detailing.
This Thunderbirds scheme is beautiful, utilizing Presto chrome covering and ProMark graphics.
Andrew Robinson from South Africa competed in the World Jet Masters with his beautiful T-33.
