Very nice Dave. I love military models.
I built models up until I moved out of the barracks in the Corps. Went to a large hobby shop here several years ago looking for a special paint to match a ding we were touching up. Found the paint, and also found a model of the CH46 helo I spent most of my career working on, and flying in.
The boxed model is still in the top of my closet, waiting for the time when I will have the patience to give it the attention it needs. I don't want to just build the box model, I want to add authenticity. Patches on the airframe, real markings from my squadron, a true bureau (serial) number. I have plenty of pics. It will be a challenge.
Let's all have a great New Year!
