Intermission – What Have I Done!

The temptation was simply too great, and the price was just right with no shipping fees!

How could I resist the temptation to add to my stash.

The Grumman F4F-4 Wildcat will eventually pay homage to Richard Emerson Harmer who flew Wildcats off the USS Saratoga.

The Corsair will also pay homage to him. He flew Corsairs off the USS Enterprise in 1944.

I will probably build it for my grandson.

    Looking forward to seeing you work on these! I have a soft spot for that Dauntless kit as it was that exact same one that I was building when my son was born! Nice score!

      I always had a soft spot also for the Dauntless having built two old Monogram kits.
      I still have an old one in my stash, and this new one which is much improved.
