    I built a couple of those for other folks about 20 years ago. Does the kit still have the pages showing the crash landed one as a dio? You'll also need to build the DC-3 and YF12a.........

    I still have some unbuilt 1/48 kits, like a DC3, YF12a, F-104, B-58, and several Williams Brothers 1/35 racing planes.

    Nice job on B17. Looks good next to the Lib.

    Curious, can you even see the interior details?

    Reminds me of my junior high/high school bedroom. I had a shelf with every Navy aircraft flown from a carrier involved in Vietnam built in 1/72 scale, Skyraider, A4, Vigilante, F4, Crusader, Intruder, etc..

    It reminds of a 'boardgame' I had when I was a kid.

    It was called Sub Search. It was just like Battleship, except it had four levels.

    Good stuff. Sweet man cave.

    Do you do a clear coat? I used to brush on some charcoal powder at the exhaust and then seal it with matte clear coat.

    I didn't huff it, but I loved the smell of Testors glue (orange tube, not the blue tube).

    I had this board game and ran missions all over Europe. No computer (other than Norden bomb site) needed
