This is definitely the "SPAM Model of the Decade" winner. Wow.
To make each build less crappy than the last one. Or, put another way, "Better than the last one, not as good as the next one!"..

Thanks Stuart,
I thought I uploaded an update yesterday but I guess I didn't. Here is where I was as of yesterday morning. I've since added some chipping, painted the wheel wells and added the PE weapon clamps. Tonight I'll spray the clear coat and start on the decals.

Building a kit from your stash is like cutting the head off a Hydra, two more take it’s place.

The 1/350 pilots approve!

Thanks Stick!
Love it!. Such a great movie...as long as you can get past the AT6 Zeros, Kates and Vals. I saw those "movie stars" fly into Waco when they were escaping Brownsville from Hurricane Allan back in 1980. I saw an HE-111 from "The Battle of Britain" at the Broomfield CO. airport in the 90's while she was at a stopover to some destination. I was allowed to climb inside and take a few pics at the time. I believe that 111 crashed some time after that.

Thank you Stick.
I completed the aircraft last night, now I'm touching up and adding maintenance crew to a couple of them in the pilots seat as they warm up (cut one of the guys in half and cram them in the cockpit). I'll need to make wee chocks for the wheels probably :hmm: . I also ordered some Japanese crew from Northstar (never seen them before) that has them actually bending and climbing instead of standing there straight as a board, at a judo match, marching band or are strictly aircraft crew. The only other set other than Northstar and Tory Factory are the Fujimi, but I didn't want Lego crew so I didn't go with them. Hopefully they'll be here in a month or so. I was gong to buy two sets but I wasn't sure they'd be here in time. The guys are so small that you won't know it they are carrying ammo or what so they'll work as well
