Many, many years ago, or more accurately decades,
there was a manufacturer of name Lindberg that brought out a series of
airplane models. With movable items including rotating propellers, they
resembled toys as much as genuine models.
Despite this, their kit of the last of
biplane-fighters by Curtiss for the US Navy was the only one in this
scale for decades.
An engine from JMGT, putty in all colours as well
as plastics in all sizes, cross sections and thicknesses helped to make
genuine showcase "comrade" for my other "Yellowwings". The whole task
took around 60 hours.
The machine represents the Leader of the Yellow 5th
section of the VF-2 Hi-Hats.
