  1. Yum! Ahh, those were the days. It's a pity girls can't look like that today. Never mind the color.
  2. Super, super nice. Well worth the effort. Always have liked the Hellcat. Did my first build back in the 1950's when Monogram came out with their speedy built kits.
  3. Notice the stenciled numbers on the flight deck. Good point of reference. Also something to add to a flight deck diorama. Names' Pat, cold war sailor, USS WASP '59-'61
  4. Back in the early 60's aboard the old Wasp, if you stood the mid watch you were given ham or cold cuts and cheese sandwiches. They were referred to as "mid-rats". They sure went down good. Nobody complained.
  5. I'm thinking, and this is just me thinking, that the drop tank was purposely reversed to reduce aerodynamic drag. If so, not sure if it would have made that much difference.
  6. Wow, cuffed props in Korea. That's nice to know. My preference.
  7. +1 A very neglected subject indeed. I'd buy. I would have to learn to foil for that one.
  8. The oleo's would have to be fully extended. Some surgery would be required there. Not sure about the rest. Name's Pat
  9. Thanks Ron. Must have. I would like to do a simple -3 conversion Doesn't seem to difficult. Hope the AM guys are reading this. Name's Pat
  10. Woopee fart, another 109. That's all we needed. I will resume my wishing now. Sorry, I just can't get excited about anything WWII German. I guess I'm in the minority, and a bit frustrated. Oh well, my credit card is safe for now. They ain't getting any of my money.
  11. Or better still, how about mating the nose of the recent revell Mustang. That might work out evan better. I've been chewing that one around for awhile, but just don't have the gumption. That would truly be a world of hurt. That trumpeter nose is an abortion.
  12. That side insignia is huge! Don't recall seeing one that big before on a 24 Does anyone know the diameter of the roundel part? I'm thinking Jennings might know. That's one of his specialties. Come to think of it, I would love to see Fundekals do a dissertation on B-24's and their markings just like they did with the Corsair and have decals to match. A ton of research would be required I'm sure. Just a thought.
  13. Nope, can't do that. Just cannot get past all it's flaws. I'll wait for a more decent offering which will surely come sooner or later. I'm in no hurry.
