Glad to hear it got there in time....Nothing better than a big old Skyraider under the tree!

I haven't had any time to get mine ready for paint, the kids are all starting to show up to occupy the Home Front for the Holidays and Mama Susy is in full Christmas mode (don't get in her way!) so I am doing double duty, but I'm trying to get as many out as I can.We both want to thank you all for your support...We couldn't make it without you, couldn't feed Fred  either!

Received mine today, absolutely incredible! The surface detail and the casting of the parts has to be seen to be believed. Well worth years of waiting for this important Skyraider variant & will certainly be purchasing more. One question, is there a decal & markings placement sheet? Thanks.

Many thanks for the enthusiastic write up...I'm glad you like it!  The color and marking guide was delayed by a lost file on the artists computer and as soon as he gets it done I will post it both here on LSP and on my website as a pdf for download.

 

back to work!

 

Paul

Do you have anything in particular that should be used to clean any mold release agent from the castings? Thanks.

Chuck
