    Hi folks,

    While this group is far from complete, I do have all the types I wanted. It is a sort of tribute to the contribution of the RAAF and RNZAF in the Pacific war with the US. A couple of other RAAF types are not in shot.
    The final piece was completing the Catalina a few months back, what a job that was.


    cheers

    Great stuff, and a nice sentiment. It'd be better off posted in the main Modelling section though, where more people could see it.

    Hi Airframes,

    Good point - reluctant to start too many threads as there is so much other interesting stuff going on but figured it be best to put it here. I have another collection which is nearing completion so perhaps I could post it in the general section when the final piece in the puzzle is complete. :)

    Thanks for the comments all. I visited Pearl Harbor earlier this year. My partner and I had planned the trip for a while, and it was very high in my 'travel bucket list'. By the time I do my 3rd US trip next Sept (my partners), I'll have done 6 of the 10 things on my list, not bad considering I'll only be 30.
    That is a story for another day!
    A very emotional place to visit - I watched Tora! Tora! Tora! at the age of 11, and was very moved by it. glad to have finally been able to pay my respects there.


    cheers
