    Steven .. went to college with a guy that flew an ATM .. wish he could see THIS fantastic build .. like Seamus said .. NICE weathering effect .. as it should be after many flights/usage ! the details are SUPERB .. with the looks of LOTS of patience ! ANOTHER AWESOME model by you !

    • thank you so much Ray I had some help from my uncles who both flew in these during the war they both shared there stories and what they could remember about conditions of aircraft it helps seeing it through the eyes of someone whom was there
