Thanks, Lars, I'm looking forward to seeing it.  This scan is all I have for now, I'll be taking delivery from Dennis at the same time as USS Olympia.   He says there is some touch-up to do, and I believe he's going to build a base.  Maybe get the Black Cat around Halloween, or at least before Christmas and the I-5  Tejon Pass to his place in Northern CA gets subject to snow closure or bad driving conditions.  All the best, AB

Here's some more Pugnacious Puss Photos from VP 52.    Dennis actually built 2 different kits.    The one with the diorama I believe is the Academy 1:72  kit, the one with the option of the spinning or stopped props is the Revel 1:72 kit.

Thanks for posting a lot of great pictures. I like the use of the plastic for the spinning prop technique. Unfortunate for me my next plane project is a jet. I definitely want to try that technique.

 

Semper Fi.
