     The idea is to show it as it appeared May 24 1940 on the sand bar

   

             Lather, rinse, repeat.

Art..thanks..I was simply curious.

 

Max, many a lady during WWII put a lot of hard work doing their bit but oftentimes they are forgotten..MY Aunt M did her bit too making ammo .. while her husband was stationed in North Africa as A LAC ..(he worked on Lancs,Spitfires and many other iconic aircrafts)

I applaud your mum and all the the other ladies for their hard and sonetimes strenuous work..:clap2:

  Maru, also you can make out the Phare de Walde light tower in the distance by the prop blade.

    Will add a HB spit to the recipe. The Hasegawa spit is in front, with the Hobby Boss behind.

    Hasegawa gives us a early and late windshield, and a flat and blown hood, cool!
