This is the Revell kit. I have used the Vector set for the props and crankcase with the right magnetos and prop pitch absent from the kit. The Xtradecal I have used repeat the mistake previously done, as Slippery Sam was serial n° 4512 and not 4511. The picture of this plane shows a difference between the yellow top of the propellers and the color of the artwork, so red is the option I choose. Ultracats wheels are a real gem. A lot of painting to get the proper worn and weathered look of an aircraft operating in the Salomons in 1943!

Slippery Sam belonged to the 1 BR Squadron and was based on Guadalcanal in late 43. Salute to all my Kiwis friends, cheers, jean.
