    Hello! My name is Charlie. (Chariots of Fire). While normally a modeler of 1/25 scale fire apparatus, I also enjoy modeling 1/72 scale WW2 US Navy aircraft. I'm looking forward to popping in every so often. As an opening question does the Eduard PE for the Academy version of the SB2C Helldiver work for the Airfix kit as well?

    Hello Charlie, welcome from England. Not sure about the Eduard PE, but most PE sets fit, or can be adapted, for most kits.

    Thanks, guys. I'll try to post some pics of my WW2 builds. If you don't mind my posting a related subject. This is a 1/25 scale Type O-5 crash rig that the USAF used in the late 1940's and early '50's. The actual rig of the one I modeled was used at Otis Air Force Base on Cape Cod.

    Once again thank you for the warm welcome. I'm in the process of photographing a few of the US Navy aircraft and will post them in the appropriate location. Need to get some decent pix first!

    I realize that my posts so far don't have wings but they are at least aircraft related. This one is my latest build; not finished but getting there. The R-2 Rescue was used in the early to mid 1950's and had a great assortment of equipment for aircraft rescue assignments. Once the outside is done I'll tackle those pieces of equipment that go behind all of the compartment doors.

    Can't wait to see what you're going to stick inside it.

    Welcome from North Carolina. How's the weather up there? You near the cape? Used to drill out of NAS South Weymouth and Newport, RI. It's a very pretty area.
