    I've been an on and off modeler for years. I repaired this old model B24D originally built by my son 25 years ago and placed it in a diorama. He was very good at putting realistic damage to models and I didn't want to waste his efforts. The Air museum in Hixon TN wants me to donate it for display there. I also made a few displays of Armor/Infantry scenarios of Korea and WWII.

    I can certainly understand the museum wanting it for a display. I'm hoping it goes there because it's a wonderful piece of work.

    Not bad at all. Bit puzzled about the bent prop blade though.
