I entirely agree with disregarding Academy decals when you build the next P-40. I didn't know better and wish I would of went aftermarket. After I slid the decal off the sheet and onto the plane it simply curled up and fell off. Never again will I use Academy decals!!!
Yup, I'm with the tour and will indeed be at Kankakee this weekend . Would be great to meet up with you finally !. I leave the tour on the 4th in the evening and fly back home on the 5th.
If you're going for a flight in the bombers, I'm flight engineer (cat herder !) on 'Witchcraft'. Not sure what the airport infrastructure is like but I should be able to slide of for a coffee or suchlike with you. I'll be easy to spot as I'm the dude with the weird accent . Can't reply to your e-mail as my outlook will not send !. Hope to see you then !.
I decided since your tank looked so good on the diorama I'd try to make one as well. I think in September I had the thought of building a diorama with a Stug and an Opel, well, they're both built so I can make one. I have a thread WAY back in 2008 maybe? called Mud with some good reference pictures and I'm trying to make a puddle, pond whatever with a truck crossing through and the Stug waiting. The Stug would be crossing but I take finished pictures of the model
