After building Trumpeter’s 1/32 scale kit, Ron wrote, “In 1949, an F8F-1 Bearcat, Beetle Bomb, replaced the North American SNJ in the Blue Angels as a simulated enemy target. As the team transitioned to the F9F Panther in mid-1949, Beetle Bomb was used in a pre-show aerobatic display.” Ron mixed insignia yellow and red to get the color he’d seen in his references. He made his own decals and did the script on the cowling by hand.
