That turned out nice, Bob…what happened to the rest of the canopy pieces?

if you look on the back of the squadron book and photos of this period it appears they were missing
Really….? “Open Cockpit” flying, huh? Guess they only flew in CAVU weather, then. Interesting. Thanks. Nice build nonetheless.

Very, very pretty!
I built an Occidental/Italeri Spitfire, once…one of the nicer kits I’ve ever built. Really.

Bob, I echo the sentiments of the earlier post…Very nice figure painting-I can do a passable job on the body, but every face I do looks like something from Van Gogh’s “The Scream”!
Bob the above is in ref to your pilot figure…
erich that gorgeous cockpit in your arrow makes me want to scream and shout…the glass in the instruments dosen’t look like future or white glue…i’m still shaking my head at your talent

Bob .. with the photography one would NEVER imagine this AWESOME model is that small … a GREAT job … one of my Uncles had an SNJ ,.. of course didn’t look as good as this .. it was a LOUD ride … AGAIN, you did yourself GOOD .. good presentation …
