For several years I had a goal of building 1/48 scale models of all the Navy dive-bombers that saw action in WWII. I'd been fascinated with dive-bombing ever since I read Walter Lord's book "Incredible Victory", and saw the movie "Midway" in th[...]
The A-7 Corsair II,sometimes known as the SLUF ,a double threat on the flight deck, with that gapping waist high intake, to the low hung engine exhaust. made hazardous to walk around. Seeing this on the shelf of Willis hobby's, I couldn't resist[...]
