Congrats to Dave, Don and yourself!  Thanks for the pics.  Yep it helps to have invasion stripes or yellow or red or white tails on those warbirds!!

Went to the Black Sheep Squadron Guillow's 500 series at the "Grassy Knoll" this morning. It was hot and (hit 104 F a bit later) and the wind came up and blew us out about 10:30.  Dave Gee was first, P-40, Don Butman second, Spitfire, and myself third, Hellcat.

Dave got an interesting lesson in model finishing on the field. When deciding on a color scheme remember where you are going to fly it! (See photos.)  He says that the next military model he builds to fly there will have a target tug paint scheme.
