Justin, Awesome build. Remind D he owes you a flight deck to display that monster on.

I missed the Bear Aces stuff before, what's the story there?

Thanks guys I'm glad you like it.

@md originally I picked the bear aces because this particular one was part of the nose art competition between air squadrons.But they had out sourced the nose art to another company and when i touched it with decal set it dissolved .But it was only a temporary thing anyways, so no biggie.still would have looked better with a chick on the nose though

I'll try and describe this the best I can. Ya know how when you were little there was always this kid that had all the coolest toys, and he was a really nice guy.......but for some reason his stuff was always better than yours, so at the end of the day even though you were friends you still wanted to take a baseball bat and smash his collection of awsome airplane builds....er, I mean toys.....

Great work man, as usual. There are a few old hands here that I can't help but admire their work. As a realitive new kid on the block, you rank right up there with best.
