This is the first time I've attempted to show a photo here, so I hope it works:
Monogram 1/32nd F3F-3. I used Lone Star resin wings of the correct span. I scratch built the entire cockpit. The wheels were made thicker to scale (6in).Pilot is the figure included in the kit, but configured to fit in the seat. The flying/landing wires are ground down music wire.
Model Master paints used through out, and Yellow Wings Decals also used.
My references used was the "GRUMMAN F3F-3 in ACTION" book and drawings by Peter Westberg.
I had the landing gear working because I thought they looked cool in operation. Alas, the extra weight of the larger,resin wings proved too much for the delicate joints in the gear. I had to glue them down.

I always wait for the paper each morning. I look at the obituary column and if I'm not in it, I go to work.
