Okay guys, here's the deal. I'm going to work on this model until I get my grubby little mitts on a Tamiya F4U-1D. THEN I'll put it aside for a bit but will continue to do some work on it from time to time. This is all to say IF the F4U-1D shows up before I'm done with the '17. Sound like a plan??? :)

LOL Should go fairly fast relatively speaking as I don't intend to add any after market stuff to the interior. The main thing will be the exterior painting/weathering.  :)
