well I can say that this Dumas Widgeon is a terrific kit and very easy to work on. The laser cut parts are excellent and the wood quality is very very good.

I had Air Power and Flight Journal magazines stacked to the roof of the man-cave for the longest time..I had to part with most of them recently as I had run out of real estate. I'm still recovering lol

Beautiful Hun!  I still have several stacks of Wings and Airpower magazines from the pre-internet days - every time I go through them I get new ideas for projects...

thank you, Neal - I am a fan of your work as well. The skills needed to make good flyers from these balsa kits has eluded me for decades. I finally came to accept it and now build them only for display.
You seem to have mastered it and I appreciate the dedication and effort that it takes.

Thank you for your kind words. The scale markings for this model are from Squadron Signal in 1/32 scale. I would pay money to any one of the decal mfgs to add 1/24 scale to their catalogs but it just doesn't seem to be likely to happen. I have several sheets of various solid color decals for the purpose of creating my own markings when its possible to do that.

I also have a large inventory of unused decals collected over the years : warning and notice stencils, squadron insignia and so on, like most long time modelers manage to accumulate so getting the airplanes properly tattooed is relatively easy anymore. What did we do before the internet as far as reference materials? Magazine subscriptions and library cards I guess.

I still need to extend the red fuselage chevron stripes up and over the spine as required - working on that now..
