A few years
ago, my wife found this model for me on e-bay, unopened and
unassembled. I was quite excited as I was stationed at RAF Lakenheath
at that time and was part of the communications support team for the
raid. The model went through at least 2 moves, still in the box
awaiting assembly. I volunteer at a WWII aviation museum and met a guy
who has done an amazing job of cleaning up a bunch of models there.
Once I saw what he could do, I realized that I could never make this
model look anywhere near this quality. I asked this guy, Joe Nassi, if
he would be interested in doing it up for me. Below are the results.
Joe is a real artist with models! No detail was left out. Notice the
distressed look of the paint where the wing folds into the fuselage.
Just like the real thing!
