Very old build of the Wings vacuform Vindicator, long before the AM kit!

This is sneaky...as it IS a 30's USN scheme, but is the colors used for the "Admirals Barge"; dark blue with silver wings. Still...it dates from the same period.....this is my 1rst vac biplane, the old Bald Eagle Grumman Duck; once more, built before the Glencoe kit was rereleased or the CA kit came along.

Classic Castings resin kit of the P-26C Peashooter, built before the Acdemy kit came along.

Please excuse the other models, but this pic shows my 1/48 PBY-1 Flying Boat in 1937 markings, converted from the Monogram PBY-5 using the resin Belcher Bits set. The rest of those models are 1/32!

 

That's not absolutely every one of my yellow wing birds, but certainly most of them. Doubt I'll get to building my F11C-2 Goshawks in time to make this theme, since I'm stuck at my dad's house for a while! Hope yall enjoy. Comments and questions are welcome, as always!
