  1. One of my favorites, Darren...and nicely done I might add. Kudos.

  2. Ah yes, the 405th FG. Their CO was COL (later MGEN) Carroll "Mac" McColpin, the only American to command all three Eagle Squadrons. I had the privilege of knowing "Mac" back in the 1980s, and once asked him about the wild markings in the 405th FG. His reply was "we were taking 50% losses as a ground attack unit, and needed all the morale we could build." (BTW - the 405th's Deputy Group CO was LCOL Bill Dunn, the first American ace of the Eagle Squadrons and the first American ace of WW2 - there were a couple other Eagles in there too)

    Beautiful model. Definite 10.

  3. Loverly model. Super sharp masking and also excellent decal work.

    • Thanks for the feedback, I actually built this one before Super Rabbit, didn't take any photos until the weekend!
      Next is Five by Five in my continued build of 362nd P47's.
      Happy Modelling
