    I really like this plane Geo in my list I have it included, but the model I plan to do is "Operation Crossroads" number 15 and the blue tail, the decals of alley cat

    Thanks Sergio. Check with your references as most of the markings on the Alley Cat sheet are for the F6F-3 version and not the -5 as Alley Cat says

    Now that is a cool plane George. I guess the drone was nothing more than a large RC plane. Must have been fun flying that thing. Very good job on the painting George.
