Aces High: The Heroic Saga of the Two Top-Scoring American Aces of World War II

 

I enjoyed this book Chris.

 

Lightning Strike is also interesting reading.

 

The early Lightnings are so very shark-like.

 

Looking forward to seeing this one finished

Jon, 

 

Just finished Aces High on your recommendation, what a great story. While I knew most of it in tidbits it was fascinating seeing the two stories unfold together along with Kerby, Boyington etc. Got the juice flowing again!

Absolutely scary, this is major surgery, I got as far as cutting all the parts from the sprues on mine and gave up, it's still around in plastic bags in my spares box.

 

Cheers

Glad you enjoyed that book.

Interesting to discover the tremendous pressure those young men put on themselves during the war.

 

Very interesting the abilities they both had in flying the P38. Unreal.

 

Great job so far on your p38 kit.

Looking forward to your conversion.

 

Jon

Hey guys! 

Negative on the completion...and the sob story goes like this...

  • relocated (again!!!) 
  • all model stuff is in boxes in the garage
  • basement remodel on deck (framing, electrical, sheetrock, painting...oh my!)

Needless to say, it won't be done anytime soon. But having you guys ping this thread has given me a smile. Great to know that LSP is a home away from home, even if that away is a long time. Thanks for the note...I'll ping back when I do get set back up...and the lightning will be top of the bench! 

Another distraction is flying US fighters in Warthunder in Virtual Reality...now THAT is a time sink!!!!!! :D

Wait a second......Warthunder? Isn't that a conflict of interest? :)
(it is a nice game, though, huh? Would love to try the VR myself!)
