    Here she is, Boeing 314A "Dixie Clipper" as used by the USN during WWII. This particular aircraft was used by Roosevelt to fly to the Casablanca conference in 1943. Overall the kit is quite good, however don't use the "bonus US Navy" decals that came in my box, these decals are the only gripe I had with this model.
    Thanks to all who stopped by for a look :)
