    This is a Lockheed C-63, an impressed version of the model 14 Lodestar. The kit is a conversion of the 1/72 Airfix Hudson with nose glazing and turret removed. I added new engines and props and modified the windsceeen. As usual after doing this and the Japanese Thelma I found out Special Hobby makes a kit.

    Nice. There's a small hangar here at Orlando-Sanford IAP where a couple of guys are restoring a Lockheed PV-2 Harpoon as a gate guard static display. Last time I was there it was dismantled and there was a loooong way to go. Naturally, they are volunteers and the project is funded by donations. Your model reminds me to go over and see how they're doing. I might donate the paint. Again, nice looking airplane.

    Real Nice work on an uncommon subject. This is the type of stuff I love. Check out a book called "Alae Supra Canalem: Wings Over the Canal" The Sixth Air Force and the Antilles Air Command. It's about the pretty much unknown war years in the Carribean. Ever heard of a Hamiltom UC-89? How about a JUNKERS C-79? Some rather unusual interpretations of camo specs down there too.
