Your're sick of building this kit- and never wanted to build a Fletcher, in the first place - so you did the one named for one of your (obviously) least-favorite personalities! (LMAO Don!) In the process, coining the Immortal Term: "Nimrod Radar-Hater"( Should be spelled "Radar-Hadar"). Also quite amusing regarding the tiny, 700-scale kits, and details. You really should write a book, Don! |
Meanwhile, also some very interesting historical snippets about not only the Guadalcanal Night Battles - but also the ironic (perhaps Justice) of a Kamikaze sinking Callaghan's namesake DD: the total self-sacrifice and sincerity of the former being perhaps the polar opposite of arrogant racism.
Incredibly, your post actually provides some inspiration to model a Fletcher, Don - most appreciated, as always, buddy!
