  1. Well it ain’t right to like a Jug with girlie art. Its not PC either. It’s a slippery slope . But, this has to do with history and the truth. I ‘m sticking with the truth.
    Two thumbs up on the kit and the art work.

  2. Beautiful job….I really need to get one of those Razorbacks. I like your paint work, really looks good.

  3. Nice work, James, with a great result.

  4. Great jug with a pretty girl. Sweet .

  5. Impressive build.
    Canopy in blue is for sure an eye catcher.

  6. Excellent result, Kelly!
    Paint fading on the wings is exceptional!

  7. Very, very nice, congratulations!!

  8. Very nice! I also like the blue canopy scheme – those T-bolts with that contrast make interesting builds. Well done.

  9. Excellent!!! so far I have resisted building this one, though the 405th FG is fave so one day………
