Finished this up last year:

Kit: 1/72 Antares
Unit: USS Iowa, 1945
Paints: GSB = Model Master FS 15042
Insignia White = Model Master FS 17875

There's a nice photo of this aircraft in an old Wings magazine (Vol 15, no 1).

Not a difficult build. Hardest part was getting things aligned, especially the main float. The cockpit is too shallow so I painted the lower areas flat black as you really can see it with all the canopy frames. Worked for me.

Arguably the best plane Curtiss manufactured since the P-40. Nice to see one of these built up; its a cool looking aeroplane.

Cheers,
