    Thanks for all the kind words everyone ,really appreciate it! I've been told that this aircraft did'nt have a turret,not sure myself . I searched a long time before starting the build and only found an actual picture of a nose shot,did'nt show the fuse top. The rest of the images I found including several a/m decal sheets and artists renderings showed it having one(I know ,not a great reliable source for accuracy). If its not accurate with the turret my humble apologies.

    A lot of work there, but the end result was well worth it. Excellent model. One of these days I will start on my GWH P-61A.
