    These just came in the mail today. Just need the seatbelts. No excuse not to start the cockpit now.

    How about some daylight shots? he asked, without a hint of irony as he has no plans to do the same.

    Thanks, I'm pretty happy with it.  I get a lot of inspiration from this forum to keep pushing the envelope of my modeling skills. It's my best effort to date, but still has a lot of bumps and warts. Each build I try to do something new. This one got a number of firsts. Some turned out good, some not so much, but I can't learn by just reading about how. Just like being a carpenter...you gotta do it to really learn how.

    I really like how this came out.  You should be utterly happy with the results.

    So I've lodged my vote for three, though I won't say which three.  What I will say is that I hope the three winners will be better supported than the current two GB's as well as the previous Eighth Air Force GB.

    Well, to be a little pedantic and according to my sources, Gabreski was not shot down, he got too low on a strafing run, pranged his prop, and caused the ditch and subsequent internment.  I think the antenna is a standard AN part and would be the same between aircraft (i.e., P-47 to P-51) but may have been finished differently.  If I remember correctly (and that's definitely debatable), the antenna was made of wood.  I'd have to do some retroactive research (checking IPB's) on it but that's what I remember off-hand.
     
    I haven't yet figured out how the invasion stripes were removed without affecting the camouflage pattern underneath, unless it was a water-based paint (or some other medium). Most of the examples I've seen, the invasion stripes were just overpainted with OD or another suitable color.  This is quite different from what we see in the above photos of Gabby's plane.
     
    Anyway, this build is really nice and I'm a pretty big "Jug" fan (notice my userID).
