  1. Thanks, he will be missed. He helped me a bunch with pictures and details for my 1/32 Corsair I did a few years back. Funny thing is I didn't connect him as "that" Jim Sullivan until quite a bit later. I still have his messages saved for future reference, great guy to give time to all of us.

  2. Thanks Phillip.
    Blue skies, Jim.

  3. Thanks for haring, Philip.

  4. He and I first conversed when he complimented the Tamiya 1/32 F4U-1 I did in "South Pacific weathering." When I realized he was the guy whose work on the Corsair I had long studied, I felt really complimented that he liked the model as much as he said he did. He also had some suggestions I have put to use in later Corsair models that really improved the results. Jim was one of those guys who make this hobby a fun and interesting place to be.
