Be careful of the toes that you step on today for they may be connected to the ass you have to kiss tomorrow.

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??? :)

I was gonna say, you'll have this thing done in a couple days.... Shouldn't be a problem whatsoever. :whistle:

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.  :)
