If I ever stumble across a deal for the 1/48 Airfix kit, I'd make one as an HMX-1 white top. 

(The kit I already have in the stash is going to be done as a Cormorant with the Belcher Bits resin)

Those WAH-64 photos were done when the ship was just off the UK coast some months ago, right ?

The scheduled break from F-35 photos is now over. We now return to your regular programming of way too many F-35s..
