It’s so cute, it just had to be built
I bought this kit at the show in Madison last weekend and I finished it today. It is such a unique aircraft that saw service throughout the war. In the hands of a skilled pilot, and under the right conditions, this STOL aircraft could take off and land within twice its own length. It is just so cute. The only problem I had with the Academy kit was with the decals. They just would not lay down or lay still once down. Ended up losing one sides worth of the smaller squadron numbers on the fuselage. But still a fun build.
