    Are there official stats for this plane?
    You'll die of old age waiting for the Unofficial Stats Committee to work that out. I just use their guide in the Files and determine the stats as best I can.
    So how many books are in your personal library?

    So far this month I've only managed to do some 10mm Soviet infantry and some command groups for Battlegroup Northag. At that scale I was glad they weren't in camo uniforms.....

    Maybe the mission will be a failure and the dam stands tall. (Never happen.)
    So how many books are in your personal library?

    Oh, that would be brilliant! Build a removable chunk... sort of like those walk-in bathtubs you see advertised on TV (well, ion American TV anyway).

    What an awesome build.

    Ok, one more rehab. A 1/48 scale P51B - The Bald Eagle - which flew over Normandy on D-Day to support the landing with straffing and bombing runs. The Bald Eagle is from The 361st Fighter Group, "Yellowjackets" as distinguished by the yellow nose. My Father built this decades ago, but it was in fairly good condition. The decals were in good condition but still needed some touch up as well as the stripes (cleaning was not enough). The major update was the repaint of the olive to the actual Navy Blue on the Bald Eagle. I am not sure why Dad used the olive, other than it may have looked that way on the kit box. Note the Malcolm Hood canopy prefered by many P51 pilots over the later bubble canopy of the P51Ds.

    True for both the P-51s and P-47s. The move to the bubbletops was for increased visibility, accepting the slight loss of speed.
    Personally, I like the look of the razorbacks over the bubbletops for both.

    Correct. The one negative with the Bs and Cs was only 4 guns (which liked to jam) instead of the 6 guns in the Ds.

    I decided that my Zeppelin needed a storage solution that also doubled as safe transportation.

    The starting point was the box it was shipped in:

    After a bit of thought, I decided that upside down was the best solution for storing the Zeppelin and so I created two bulkheads from some spare foam board left over from a previous project. In fact most bits were constructed of foam board along with a few odd bits of black foam packing from a recent 3D printed purchase. The cross pieces are a push fit and are held in place when the lid is closed.

    Now my Zeppelin can travel in style with no possibility of any delicate bits coming detached. The next stage will be to design a suitable covering for the outside of the box - thinking, thinking, thinking...
