Once upon a time, when I was in elementary school, my favorite game was a strategy board game called Hell in the Pacific. Each player took the role of an air force commander and tried to destroy the enemy fleet, primarily aircraft [...]
This kit was a bit of a bear. Not surprising considering they are still using the mold from 1977. I had several fights with the seams, including the fuselage seams popping in places. I don't know if the plastic was just being impervious [...]
The flight deck of USS Enterprise (CV-6) echoed with the command over the loudspeaker from the bridge: “Pilots! Man your planes!” Thirty-one year old Lieutenant Richard H. “Dick” Best Jr., operations officer of Bombing-Six, watched [...]

Doing 109Es with the Special Hobby kit is great - that is [...]
The 6147th Tactical Control Group originated at Taejon, South Korea, within the "operations section" of the Joint Operations Center. Three pilots, and two Stinson L-5 Sentinels, were assigned as airborne forward air [...]
