357th FG Build Shelf of Doom Edition
Posted by lewbud on Monday, July 27, 2020 6:43 PM

For the 2005 IPMS Nationals, our local club decided to do a build honoring the 357th Fighter Group.  These were started sometime in 2005 and have been languishing on the shelf ever since.  One will be Nooky Booky IV flown by Maj. Leonard "Kit" Carson.  Not sure what the other will be.  I wanted to do Nooky Booky II, but I haven't been able to find those markings in 1/72.  Sometime over the last 15 years, the prop went missing from the F-51D kit.  Fortunately, I have a spare kit and was able to raid it for a cuffed prop.  The kit includes a cuffed and uncuffed prop so the kit isn't reduced to spare parts.
