A honor to build as a tribute to James M. Marmande who was lost during his return to Midway Island. In a way a fun build, especially the cockpit details. However I am relieved to move this off the build bench, onto the display shelves, and begin something new.

Photo section edited....bottom view(s) added. And yess, the wheel on the starboard side is wonky. This is the one that broke off 4 times . I did, after this last bottom photo adjust, but not going to go back and do a new photo shoot.
