And yes, you do have some Savages, don't you - I only regret I don't also have some jets, or improved Corsairs to lay on you, as well. I do think I still have 20- or 25 Twin-3"50s that your Midway would require - flawless 1:550 castings, infinitely better than the Revell molds - and could fix you up with 'em, if you're so inclined. I'll gladly swap you those for your spare Matty's Models FBM bow correction, assuming it's still "spare" (See my last eMail).
And I guess now is also an ideal time to post my latest shopping/wish-list:
- 1:48 Monogram (or anyone's) A1-E/AD-5 Long-Canopy SkyRaider ("Sandy")
- 1:48 ESCI AD-5/5W Long-Canopy SkyRaider
- 1:48 Monogram (or anyone's) F9F Panther
- 1:150 Academy/Doyusha (etc.) Type VII U-boat
- 1:150 Academy/Doyusha (etc.) Type IX U-boat
If your (or anyone's out there) new stash includes and could do with clearing out any of the above at an affordable price, do let me know and I'll make you the best deal I can.
Again, beautiful posting, Don - sorry to hear that Snark kit isn't such high-value, but that last gesture of appreciation to Dick is, I'm sure, infinitely more valuable - and will forever remain so. I know that's how I will always feel about getting that LST to Fred (now sadly, also passed-on).
