This is a painting of me on my first solo flight.

My instructor said I screwed that up so bad that this is all they let me fly after that.

Ricky,
I have all kinds of reference material on all types of WW2 fighter aircraft from when I
was still able to model. I built everything from a Fokker D.XXI to a Japanese Baka rocket
bomber to many Spitfires. Next time you are getting ready to build a kit I would be more
than happy to set you up with ideas.

Thanks for the offer, and I might well take you up on it. Although I currently have a list of 300 ideas of interesting models to make ;)

Currently I am converting Typhoons into the prototypes, and Greg has kindly sent me some useful images

The twin is a Ju88.  The singles have a Soviet look.
