Not a night fighter this time but fits right in with my oddball schemes. This aircraft, along with it's squadron mates sported some pretty weird paint schemes while attending the 1939 Cleveland National Air Races. Trying to interpret the [...]
Built this little dio a couple years ago, in line with my lifelong interest in the Philippine fiasco of '41-'42. Tried to represent a mad scramble of the 34th Pursuit squadron at Del Carmen field on the Day of Infamy. The opening title is [...]
