I love military jets and each issue read the stories...Violett's name was often in many issues of various model airplane magazines

RIP Sir you brought interest to my mind,  and a smile to my face with your crafts.

Yes, familiar to me from past publications with an unforgettable last name.  

Just finished reading his history, (thanks Levent) interesting as I did not know it.  We shared the same time period in the Navy and he flew the A4 Skyhawk and the vari wing F8 Crusader which I always enjoyed seeing land in it's unusual configuration.  The A4 "Scooter" was a pilots favorite and a subject of much discussion.  

But what caught my eye was of him with his model of the F-80 "Shooting Star."  To my eye the "cleanest" aircraft ever built.
