  1. Hello, My wife and I have been looking to buy a bigger house. We found one a month ago and we bought it. The best part of all is the amazing “Mancave” that was already there. Today I started to organize it.

    Bad news.

    My prayers will be with you.
  3. What an excellent work you do, I am very impressed. Also the speed in which you do it is amazing! I am terrified of biplanes, that’s why I stay away from they even though I really love to finish one. I am committed to build an old Hase Boeing F4B-4 but I am having a hard time finding elastic flat rigging line. About the Yak-3, I’m tied up with a commissioned Millennium Falcon, so I may not have much time for it. Have a good day. Paul
  4. I was born in Guatemala and I am quite familiar with its history. When I was in college I did a paper about the involvement of the CIA in the 1954 coup to get rid off the Guatemalan president Jacobo Arbenz Guzman, accused you be a communist. The CIA backed a group of ultra right anti government group, led by an Army Officer, Col. Carlos Castillo Armas. Part of the assistance included Four P-47N, and Two P-51, all nicknamed “Sulfato” (Magnesium Sulfate was used as a laxative), because literally scared the crap out of the civilian population. The planes were based in Honduras and Nicaragua. The aircraft were painted with a very light grey color, just before shipment to Honduras with absolutely no markings. Later, after the coup and with Col. Castillo Armas as president, markings were added to the remaining P-47 and Two P51s. The first two pictures are from the revolution, the third is after. This one shows the “Volcán de Agua” (Water Volcano) in the background. Enjoy.
  5. Just give it time. I’m sure that when Jesus does his second coming, there will be negative comments about him not wearing the right tunic...
  6. Tigercat. Two P&W 2800, can’t beat that!
  7. Thank you for your post. You have encouraged me to start mine, thank you. If you don’t mind a question, what color did you used for the cockpit interior?
  8. Beautiful kits! I wish I can do a WW1 kit without making it look like a toy.
  9. I have some technical drawings and pictures for the bomb bay doors, when I get home tonight, I’ll send them to you. “Scratch Builder” is very nice and he will help you big time.
  10. I scratch built it. On the multi-engine GB, I posted a couple of pictures of it. Also, The Tallboy, was made by LSP member “Scratchbuilder”.
