And I've got a proposition for you regarding the "hangar-filler" planes: I have retrieved my inventory of resin castings from storage (that's right, E.J. - I'll be eMailing you shortly), and will be happy to swap you 1-to-1, for your injection-molded Tigers and/or Cutlasses, with my original-design SkyRaiders ("Bubble-" or "Long-Canopy" types, your choice), for just the (now $5.90, total) cost of shipping.
Some SPADS will not only look more interesting in there - in fact, they'd be perfectly suitable topside - but also 100% accurate (I think) for your time period. (You could do a few of the Bats, just like in your article picture.)
Just give me a shout if interested, Eddie.
In any case, great-looking progress - Thanks for keeping us posted, buddy!
