I had a very similar experience at the Air Force museum in Dayton a few years ago. I actually think I’d be perfectly comfortable living in the place. I felt like the boy in “Empire of the Sun” when he stroked the Zero. It gave me chills to be in the midst of so much well presented and preserved aviation history. Kudos to the museums of the world for the job they do. :(

2 months ago, my family went to Seattle to visit relatives. First time there. But the high lite of the trip was a visit to Boing air museum there. WOW!! The best museum I`ve been lucky enough to visit. Totally AWESOME. You all are right, I could live there!!...........Harv :(

Typhoonattack1 asked a question earlier about why would a Kamikaze pilot who was about to be torn to shreads be concerned about a padded headrest or for that matter use a parachute, helmet or boots. Sorry it took so long but the best I can understand is this. When the Kamikaze pilot is going on his "last" mission he sees it as a sacred event, the highest calling he can achieve. He would wear his very best set of gloves or boots and would want to be in full uniform as to be fully prepared. Much like the way we rent tuxedo's for weddings and black tie events. They would also paint special markings on the plane (see the arrow shape on the fuel tank) and wear special badges on their head or arms to signify and honor the occasion.

Wow, two great build of the 1/32 N1k2 in one day on the same forum! Looks fantastic. Very nice finish. Great idea with the cockpit. Between your build and LSP-Kevin's, I'm busting with motivation to do mine.
