Great shot wheels up.  Never paid attention to how they retract.  Hellcats in dark sea blue are awesome.

Very nice build Mustang! Yes Yes

I've never built a 1/32 plane due to shelf space but seeing a lot of very nice 1/32 builds lately is giving me the itch to build at least 1 or 2 of my favorite planes in that scale. Keep up the good work.

Stay safe.

Here is my first 1/32 scale model in a very long time.  Fun build even when I an into an issue with gouging the fuselage with my rotary tool.  Also lost the pitot tube which required an aftermarket buy to fix.  All paints used were Vallejo products except for the clear colors for the lights which were Tamiya's.  Enjoy.
