Could prove an interesting one - where else would you see a M113 towing a P-3?:

Interesting!!  I wonder what they are servicing on the inboard engines that they need to remove the propellers.  I agree, 'twould make an interesting diorama.

Thought for a variation:  USMC M113 pulling a damaged EP-3E in some odd locale.

Hmmm, maybe someone out there has an Italeri 1/32 F-104 they've built with wingtip rails. Now what to do with those surplus tip tanks?  ;D

Airfix does a 1/32nd VW Beetle in its Quickbuild and Starter Set ranges. Not sure what year Airfix is portraying but the one at Canadair is a pre-'64 model (note Wolfsburg crest near hood latch). The Airfix model would need North American 'over-rider' bumper bars, that hood crest, and vintage 1964 Québec license plates added.

Just in case you have ~25 Corsair and ~6 Skyraider kits doing nothing important right now.

Heavily armed F-4U-4 Corsairs on the deck of the USS Philippine Sea. This Camera would surely be taken nearby KOREA c.1950. As many as 140 sorties a day were launched from the carrier in the early days of the Korean War. on 31 August 1950 the two carriers launched 263 sorties to prevent the North Koreans from overrunning Pusan Perimeter Flexed biceps. the other carrier was the USS Valley Forge. A giant in the Korean conflict.  Also note the more heavily laden Skyraiders on the port edge of the deck.

Very often linked images don't show up for me. But I've just realized that, if I hit 'Quote', the image url become visible ... and I can swipe-copy-paste it.

Helpful hint? Or, am I the last person on the planet to figure this trick out?  ;D
