    Entry: A-20 Havoc, Lt C. Davidson pilot.
    Kit: 1/72 MPM A-20 Havoc

    Accessories; Eduard interior, and scratch building. Nose art is created with Corel and will be printed by others. Raft scratched from soft modeling clay. Code "F" is an E with a bar cut off.

    Another Davidson flown aircraft for my collection. He was present for the unvaling of the finished restoration, and was presented with the original yoke from the cockpit.

    Assigned to pilot Lt. Charles Davidson who nicknamed it "Hell'N Pelican II", after his previous aircraft P-40N "The Hell'N Pelican". Crew Chief "Fudgie" Figuerido choose Tail Code "F" (for the first letter of his surname). A white heart was added to the rear fuselage, the marking of the 388th Bombardment Squadron.

    I submit my six required views.

    Thanks guys, just not enough time to try the flat finish thing. Some of the finishes at the IPMS meetings are airbrushed flat and Future mix and look damned nice. Will do it with the Hawk in GB20.
