Hey everyone.

I would like to join the group build with Trumpeters 1/32 A-1D Skyraider in Marine Corps markings from VMA-324.

My grandfather was an air traffic controller in the Marines during the war. He gave me his jacket from Korea for Christmas

this last year and I would like to build this model for him for his 85th birthday in August.

Perfect motivation for a Hyper-Fast build(at least for me). Wish me luck! Bob

P.S. Special thanks to DONG for providing me this kit. Thanks again Don!

:frantic:  I think I have built armor with less parts than the engine on this thing. Update soon. I promise.

Coolest part is that it fits perfectly.

Pics of engine from two nights ago. I'm pretty happy with the amount of detail Trumpeter put into this thing.
