    Thank you all very much. This is the first time I have ever tried to "weather" a model. I give full credit to Vic, Terry, and Wayne who have gone totally out of their way to help me learn to do this aspect of modeling. I cannot begin to thank them enough. Last but not least Bill (NFN) who searched out all those exhaust pics. Thank you all

    Beautiful work on one of my favorite planes.
    I lived up in the Mt.’s close to the OK boarder, between Waldren (Scott Cnty) and Mena (Polk Cnty), for 10 years and had the time to do a lot of modeling while there. My family has been there for about 150 yrs and I love it there.
    I envy you living on Bull Shoals and I’m sure you take advantage of the great fishing there.
