You start off mentioning Randy Cunningham, and then pointedly do not depict his plane - in fact, you depict one of the only two you know for sure wasn't his - ever! I must opine - though I never had any special feelings about Cunningham, one way or the other - your quiet exhibition of snarkiness is truly world-class, buddy!
Not to mention - but of course I must - that your 1/48 scale "Double-Ugly" is in fact quite beautiful. And very close to exactly what I would have had in mind - in fact, what I do have in mind - for my own, ESCI kit. Very good to know about the Hasegawa kit, and also the Eduard upgrades, all of which you blended together par excellence, as usual, Don.
And great photography to boot. With your permission, one of these days I'll enhance contrast and sharpness (if possible), and relink 'em. (But first I think I should finish uploading all your builds to the Gallery.)
Perhaps we should consider yours and Sean McDermott's recent Rhinos the start of a Phantom-II Group Build...?
In any case, a great build, and great submission - keep 'em comin', buddy!
