  1. I should have something with the teeth on my stash, so probably I'm in 🙂 Time schedule looks reasonable too.

  2. Great! It will be nice having one of your great builds at this group, Dmitry

  3. Already have P-40 Warhawk that would fit this GB

  4. I'm sure that I have something that would work... 🙂

    Maybe I could even build a few Luftwaffe subjects that come to mind. I really like the Recon Lightning... "The Florida Gator" is what grabbed my attention...


    • Louis, The “Gator” also caught my eyes...wonder if there is decals to build it? Anyway I have another sharkmouth motif decals for the P-38 in the stash, an old aeromaster may just be one of the projects I’ll consider building

      • Hello again Pedro, @holzhamer

        Florida is my home State...that's part of the reason it caught my attention. Plus the Lightning has a neat color overall finish. Could this be the "synthetic haze" by Sherwin Williams Paint company or just a "PRU Blue" ?

        If I run across a set of decals for it I'll definitely let you know where they are located...

        I'm always on the hunt for a set of decals for Rex Barber or Thomas Lamphier's P-38's in 1/48 scale... from "Operation Vengeance" when Yamamoto's Betty was shot down. Hasegawa released a "Special Edition" version of the OD Green P-38 "Miss Virginia" years ago but it's a hard one to find, and when you do, you will need a loan to buy it. A decal set was released but is no longer in production...

  5. Louis @lgardner, really can’t help with the correct label name of the blue seen in the “Florida Gator”, but it sure looks appropriate for a high altitude flight concealment. Personally, I would try some home brewed paint mix to get that blue shade 😉 btw been at your state a couple of times... great place, nice people, good food but too damm humid ahah

    • You should try it sometime in August... @holzhamer

      right after a summer rain storm. The streets actually have steam coming up from them afterwards and then it's really hot and humid almost unbearable...

      I have a PRU Lightning and a "Yippee" version in the pipeline soon... 🙂
