ID:	189807 Finally got a picture of an airbrush painting I did over 20 years ago, for my Dad. He was one of those who was too good at what he did and his CO kept him back as an Instructor. Mom said it nearly broke his heart not to get to fly a jet. When I learned that, I decided he need to have one of his own.

Was happy overall, but the final clear fogged my canopy so the scale cockpit is hard to see... Should have masked it!!! Oh well!!!
            I was looking through this thread finally... and it’s interesting what you have done. Pretty cool! I’d like to know how hard is is to work with the VQ type coverings as in cutting and flying and painting. It’s not a VQ but the only Mosquito that I can find is making its way to them and it seems the same construction. I’m so tempted to buy it and make some mods!
            thanks for any info!
