Gentlemen,

I have been searching on line over a week for good photos of the wheeled version of the OS2U Kingfisher so I can convert the Monogram kit.

I just noticed a few minutes ago that it includes the parts for a wheeled version in the box! W T F! How did I miss that!?

Oh well, I learned a few things about the Kingfisher this past few days!

I don't think in my entire model building lifetime, I have ever seen one built, in a magazine or contest table on wheels.
I thought that the floats were the way Monogram intended it be built.



Cheers,

I'm all the way through a 1.5L bottle of Sangria and just popped a Sam Adams Summer Ale, but I'm still coherent!

Would like to discuss the sheet with you (as well as some others I've got going).

when you've been checking through the parts and you can't find that small sprue.
With the ladder or aux. panels or pilot's arms, or s/thing.

Muttering like a demented scientist, burrowing through all the parts - at least three times - you suddenly feel it, In your left hand.
Your left pinky has it tucked against your palm, instead of putting it back, so you could use both hands for fossicking.

'Selected forgettery' is, I believe, the medical condition.
