Nice work, Yves!

Good to see you got “Willow Green” right. Many people fail at that task.
Yves Dhont said on February 3, 2019
thanks for the comments.
I used the Hataka paints for the willow green and the blue
The aluminium is AK.
The Orange is Mr Hobby.
I have one question for you:
Do you know what is the use of the ring under the engine in front of the fuel tank?
bob mack said on February 5, 2019
it directs the wind in a venturi effect around the fuel tank…stops vibration and tail flutter caused by switching from wooden wings to metal…it was a cheap fix the military wouldn’t pay for so curtiss came up with this

I had the pleasure of looking (holding) this magnificent Curtiss last Friday, during the club meeting in Eeklo (Belgium)
It looked fantastic. What a color scheme these aircraft had during the 30’s.
You are making a lot of progress in constructing these rather large 1/32 models.
Regards, your comrade in constructing models, Dirk
Thanks Dirk tot your positive comments and helpful input
Practice is the best teacher.
I try to improve with every model.
