    Quite the selection Glenn. Not sure some of those experimentals would qualify as WW2 but you have lots of others. The Me410 would be nice to see.

    I am in a similar position though not as many choices. Top of the list would be an RCAF Beaufighter by Tamiya with Aviaeology decals.

    Wow Glenn, you have so many choices! The Dinah sounds interesting to me. I have nothing on the shelf so I'd have to go out and buy something and nothing is really jumping out and saying BUILD ME! Right now I am considering an Academy 1/48 P-38 in Olive Drab Pacific Theater markings and going to the full menu aftermarket route. Too bad the Eduard special edition boxings are no longer available.

    You must be psychic John, the Dinah is near the top of my list right now along with the A-26G. Terry took some close up pictures of a Dinah in a museum sometime ago for me I'd like to be able to finally use but I still have some time to make up my mind.

    I've got a B-25J, a Mosquito and a Ta 154 Mistel though I may save the last one until I get better at air brushing.....a lot better.

    It looks like I will be doing the Ventura but there is still a few days till it is final.
    Besides the Ventura and the PBY I also have in the stash the following:

    Trumpeter Wellington Mk.I
    Meng Me-410
    Monogram Do-335
    Monogram Me-262

    Not as large as some other fella's stashes but a bit of a choice.

    Cheers,

    jeff

    If yellow is historically accurate then I think you should do so.

    Yellow Avro Anson eh? I'm ok with it as long as it's armed.;)

    I forgot about the Do-335... that'd be a good subject for this build. Is this the same Monogram kit that I built as a kid nearly 40 years ago?

    Glenn.. I think you should do the Dinah. I haven't seen that kit built and that is a not a common subject. And George... I think you should go for the Mistel although, technically, it has THREE engines! :twisted:

    Yep but I am pretty sure Tamiya has one as well and would be far superior I should think.

    I didn't even think of the P-38, I have 3 of them in the stash. I guess I should take a closer look at what's there.
