Chief, a few of us are "scratch-bashing". I do it alot with aircraft that don't have all the details one could hope for. PModels have great exteriors and wheel wells but need cockpits. There are a bunch of similar aircraft, a little snip and tuck, add a part and there you have it. My first commercial ship was digital navys freebie admirable. I stole er borrowed and cleaned up some twin 40s from the Gpm Saratoga. Darwin and I enlarge the JSC 1/400 kits and borrow detail parts from bigger ships. It is a great idea and method to save alot of design aggravation. I'm practically lazy, if it's been done before and done well what the hey. All those kits you've aquired are great ones. Between them you could have common equipment to build up the entire series of DE s and then some.
