I think my go to subject when I can't think of much else or I don't have much time is my collection of die cast models I have at either of my offices. Actually they do make pretty good subjects but I should probably find better light to shoot them in.
One of my favorite nicknames for the A-7 is SLUF for Short Little Ugly Feller (or another word in less polite company).
I also ran into one of the other issues of doing this with another view of the F-14. Namely, too much vibration. I probably could have done something to avoid that though.
