    Here are some shots of my C-47 and waco glider. The C-47 is an old Airfix kit and the waco is from Italeri,both to 1/72 scale.The Waco is just finished. You've seen the C-47 before but I cut off the tail cone to position the tow cable.The last couple of pics show them in thier final position,hanging in the model room.

    I was wondering when I'd see pictures of that posted. God bless the 'I'll trade you for that' thread! Nice work. Hiryu still next on list. Gotta stop breeding long enough to finish my P-51 though!

    Great job Ed, and what a display room! I'd love to do that with a Stirling and Horsa, but haven't really got the room.

    I'll ditto that. But all I can think of is having to dust all of them. I build em. I don't dust em.

    Yep, big problem, dust. Think I'll train a spider to walk over my models with a miniature brush and dusting cloth!

    Good idea, Airframes... a dusting spider. Kinda like a sea snail to clean your salt water tank.

    Oft, you have a beauty of a collection my friend. I'm utterly jealous. And do me a favor. Give your wife a kiss. She deserves it.
