    Great work!
    Perhaps you would like to join in the Group Builds. This one is Carrier aircraft, and the next covers 1914-1939.

    Very nicely done Vaughan. A tip of the toupee!

    Never been a big fan of the Trumpeter divots, I mean rivets, though.

    Thanks guys for the comments. Crimea River(don't know your real name) not sure what you mean about "A tip of the toupee". I don't think the rivets are that bad I always thought that Trumpeters rivet detail is quite subtle in comparison to other model manufacturers.

    Meatloaf109(I don't know your real name) thanks for inviting me to join one of the GBs. Not sure how they work, I do have a Grumman F4F-3 Wildcat EV and don't know if this would count for the 1914-39 group.

    Name is Andy Vaughan and I was just using a dumb expression - a slight variation on "I tip my hat to you" or "salute". The rivets are a personal thing and I meant no criticism of your great build.

    The Wildcat you have there would qualify for our current Carrier Aircraft GB which is going on til the end of November. If you think you can get it done by then and want to join, all you need to do is open a new thread here #15 Carrier Aircraft, starting with the required info:

    Hi Andy no problem about the build and I was a bit 'dumb' not working out what you meant . Thanks for the information on the G.B, I have already made a start on the Wildcat so time should be ok. I noticed that all the G.B are sticky posts does that happen automatically?

    Looking Good Vaughn! I have a Trumpeter MiG-3 in 1:48 that I’ve not started yet; I also have an ARK MiG-3 (same scale) that I have. I like the ARK so far, especially like the highly detailed engine.

    Hi Mike glad you like it. The Mig3 was a simple kit to build having no engine just the exhaust stacks but still a well detailed model with a great office.

    It's Paul. Glad to see the Wildcat in the GB for Carrier Aircraft.
    The next is for 1914- 1939. That leaves alot of wings that will qualify. Can't wait to see your in progress work!

    Yeah, me too. I've no Russian a/c in my stash but suspect that the MiG would be my first.
