Al, 76, writes: “I am an old Braniff captain/copilot/flight engineer. My dad soloed me at 16 and I was his right hand at our airport in Bayport, N.Y., on Long Island — a grass field. Since 1996 I have been embroiled in a project to build a model of every aircraft — all factions — utilized in World War II (about 275). I have finished about 195 so far.” One of those is Trumpeter’s 1/32 scale P-47N.
