The Classy Curtiss
I built this Academy 72nd scale kit during a 24hr. club build. I wanted to choose something from the "man cave stash from hell" that I figured would fit well and would be convincing with solely what came in the box,just to keep things simple. I was not disappointed! And I could do it NMF! It went together extremely well and the decals went down on the shiny surface with a pfffft...ahhhhh. As I recall my supreme time management skills were rewarded with a not - so -sincere "atta-boy" from the club alumni as I was the only one to finish my kit. The good memories were the real prize though, AND I had a beautiful silver bird to stuff into my display case! Also pictured is a silly little XP-40Q garnered from an old Matchbox kit. LOVE those shiny Hawks!
