Hey chaps, just thought I would post a recent commission, a long time since I completed anything! A bit of a departure for me, this being my first 'American' build, but as a Coastal Command version. A lovely kit and painting a white scheme is re[...]
Louis Gardner was kind enough to put up with Joe Caputo and me for an entire day that turned into quite a memorable one. The tour of the American Aero Services shop in New Smyrna Beach, FL, was the icing on the cake, but most important was meet[...]
