    Also an OD P-47


    I guess it will be a week or two before you have to bug her... I need to design a Hamilton Standard prop to replace the Curtiss prop, remove the dorsal fillet, and I think re-size the text both on the nose and under the cockpit. Just minor stuff but still alot of little tweaks...

    Razorback

    I don't know- not for a while for sure. The P-47 is one of my favs but after doing nothing but that for months one wants to change subjects. I will be doing something completely different- an M48A3 Patton tank. I'm sure that will take a good bit of time.

    Maybe for a razorback an add-on dorsal spine and canopy modification to the bubble-top model could suffice- build the cut-down version and then add the new spine and greenhouse on top. I'll think about it someday- it could work.
    A convertible! (Drop-head in UK).

    John.

    PAtton


    Thank you! So am I... I think I need a break from aeroplanes for a while. And this could take a while.
