    Looks like a great site. My primary interest is WWII USN in the early years. Have done some modeling (1/72) in both ac and armor. I've just started learning how to repaint some of the ac in cfs2( Microsoft Flight Sim) and am looking for free and legal downloadable insigna to use in this project. Was an Aviation Electronics Technician (AT2) at NAS Pensacola in the "OLD" Navy (1960 to 1963.)

    Thanks all. By the way, I was a twidget, not a sparkie. We were called twidgets by all the blackshoes because every time we sat down in front of some equipment we had to twidget with all the diials and buttons. Y'all make me feel really welcome.
