    This was my father's B-24 he piloted in N. Australia out of Fenton Field, Northern Territory, in '43-'44. He was with the 380th Bomb Group, 528th Bomb Squadron. He named the plane after my mother. I made the stand and hand painted the nose art on this one, but next time I'll try making decals--much easier I think.

    Thanks, everyone, for the kind words. To Wayne Little and Wildcat: My dad always loved and talked about Australia. After his passing, in 2005 my sister and I visited Darwin and Fenton Field (it still exists, although abandoned since war's end). It was an unforgettable experience walking the same ground he walked in 1943. I have a general question though about the modelling forum: Will I be breaking any forum rules by posting photos of non-WW2 models--I've seen a couple here and would like to post pics of my latest build (F4E Phantom II) when it's finished?

    No problem with non-WW2 models. We have everything from cars and ships to jets and tanks.
