This is my first post, but I've been lurking for a bit. I'm Anna-Elizabeth, my friends call me "Tank Grrl" because of my interest in military history and especially armor models.
I did not have the privilege of knowing Jim Sullivan, but I do know and respect his work. May he RIP.
I mostly do tanks and jets, but I have a couple of prop-driven plane kits, and the Tamiya 1/48 F4U-1D is the kit I own at the moment that is most appropriate for this group. Besides the kit, I have an Eduard Zoom set and AeroMaster 48-137 "Carrier Based Corsairs Pt.1".
I'm thinking of doing a plane from VBF-83 off of USS Essex.
