    Guys just a general note. I feel you should all visit the museum more often. It is only a short drive away and there is always something interesting going on. Besides, how can one not feel good in there!?

    Brian had told me about this a little while ago, the pictures look great, looks like an excellent restoration. Matchbox has a 1/32 model of this plane, one of those would look great in these markings.

    There's a nice museum in one of the nearby towns here, I went to one of their open houses two years ago and got a bunch of pictures, I'll have to throw them up on my server and post the link on this forum. I couldn't believe all of the great planes from the 20s and 30s that they had there, some of them I didn't know even existed anymore much last were only about 10 or 15 minutes away! I will have to try to go there again to get more and better pictures as well as a picture of each of the placards next to the planes. They even had one of the flying cars restored there. From what I had read, there was an area where they were restoring some World War II planes, but I couldn't find that area, I think that may have moved unfortunately.
