Monogram F7F-3 with Revell Shackleton propellers. Model reflects a factory-fresh machine. Cheap kit with broken and missing parts sourced from the scrapbox and scratchbuilding. Sparesbox decals. Brush-painted with Model Master acrylics and Testors enamels.

Adios, Larry.

Nice!  That would look right at home with the AU1 Corsair in the same livery.

Contraprops on a Ti-Cat...such a natural, believable concept---now that you've shown us, of course.  Cool.
