    Kit: 1/48 Hobby Craft/Academy

    Not starting as of yet, need to buy the kit, the decals and I'm still fiddling with the F4U-4

    But this is what I'm looking to do anyway...

    I believe both Hobbycraft kits as well as the Academy kit are all the same Jan. I built built the second Hobbycraft kit 14 years ago and remember the fuselage parts being slightly warped but nothing that couldn't be dealt with. It could have just been the kit I had.

    Would agree there. Their PV-1 Ventura kits atleast are the same basic mouldings.

    I just bought a balsa/tissue model of the "Peashooter". It's a Comet Model Airplane Co. product, and they went out of business in 1987. Should prove interesting.

    Going to watch this with interest.

    Nice kit Jan. This is one of those that I put back in the box after trying to figure out where the exhausts went. Watching this might get me tempted to finish it.
