The Academy P-47N comes in two versions - 'regular' and 'special'. What
is the difference?
P.S. Why all the P-47 questions? Well to state the obvious, I'm making
the models. (duh) The reason behind the reason is that my father was
supply officer for the 73rd F.S. until he was promoted to supply
officer for the Group (318th). If you are making a relevant model from
that group, and the shade of the paint dosen't come out quite right,
you have my blessing to go ahead and not worry. I doubt that people who
worried about shuch things got much sympathy. Like nose art from the
19th says "Not In Stock". 'Yellow is yellow and blue is blue - make
do.' Trust me, we heard that kind of thing at home constantly.
The only stories he told were very few and very minimized. The
semi-official web pages tell much more. He didn't take/keep many
pictures. I have some, in many different sizes, so I'm guessing they
were from different rolls of film. Either some of the rest are in a
batch which I have yet to scan, or he trew away a -bunch-. Probably
I do have a scan of the bar of the Barflies (73rd), though, though it
might be the "PX". Anyway, there is the squadron insignia above a
display of liquor, cigarettes, and peanuts behind a counter. I'll post
it to this newsgroup.
P.S. someone is 'spoofing' this address in connection with eBay. There
is not and never has been an eBay account uinder Chezelwig.
