Theme Build 2 — Complete


I think this Theme tripled the number of “Hypothetical” builds I’ve done! The Rufe may better count as speculative, or something milder than hypothetical. But they were all ideas I’d kicked around in my little brain for a few years and it was fun to get them done.

Nakajima A6M2-N Rufe
Grumman F5F-1 Skyrocket
Messerschmitt Me 509
Lockheed P-80A Shooting Star

I do have enough such kits to revisit this theme a couple more times, but it will be a few years before that happens. In the future I expect to actually do some proper Luftwaffe ’46 subjects, I may continue to play with the nine months longer War I created for the P-80 post. Although a couple of subjects might have needed much more than nine months to be realized!

I plan on building a couple of trucks now, that should take a month (?). Look for the next theme starting in late June or early July.
Coming soon… Prototypes

    Even just getting in to that Messerschmitt must have been pretty scary, the propeller is so close to the pilot’s nose!
