Story of events surrounding P-74 bring gazing upon build into even better focus.
Lot to absorb in model and story.    :-*

As promised, here are a few better quality pics.  This was a very enjoyable build.  Just what I needed after the last one!

That's a magnificent Meteor and a gripping back story to go right along with it!

Outstanding, AD!

What he said; a very credible back story.  Though I could see the IJN using their I-400 class submarines to mount an air attack against Lockheed's plant from an unexpected direction as a backup to the German attack.

Or even a disastrous, accidental fire made worse by inappropriate firefighting techniques, cant capsize and sink a factory in the same manner as an along side ocean liner but maybe water on a fuel fire spreading instead of supressing the blaze.
