Is that a newer Airfix kit, Rick? Looks pretty nice to me, and your making some great progress!
One thing you should check up on. By Midway, most, is not all American aircraft did not carry the red spot in the center of the national insignia. Especially for a from line unit like VT-8. Also the national insignia were carried in six positions. I’m not trying to be a “Know it all”, but this is one area of the Pacific War I am well informed on. What I am saying is, check your references to be sure, and don’t trust the kit manufacturer to get it right.
Looking forward to seeing your air battle come to life, unfortunately we all know the outcome of this one… It’s good to see VT-3 get represented too, as it’s always on VT-8
