Both Paul and I have Fisher F9F-5s that have been burning holes in the stash. We've been talking of a BB here, but I've still to completely decide on which Navy bird to build. Of course for me, it'll always be Navy. If it was flown by more than one Branch! Navy will win, always.
I've been staring at this box for months now, hoping and waiting for this GB, it's been tempting me awhile. I will snap a crappy pic of the kit, and will be able to set a firm timeline of tomorrow when I begin.
I will probably only ever build one of these, so I want it to be memorable.
My historic mind says Sen. John Glenn's mount, but my heart is crying out for the most iconic F9F-5 in the world; the Golden Dragons bird flown by Lt. Harry Brubaker in the "Bridges at Toko-Ri".
It is instantly recognizable by millions of people worldwide.
Then, if, and only if time remains, I will do a Glossy Sea Blue AD Skyraider, maybe the "Kitchen Sink Bomber" to go with the Toilet Bomber.
