Thanks Chad! Good to hear from you and sincerely hope you get through your health issues soon and in fine order. One of the ideas I have to elevate the small status of this plane is to literally display it on a waist-high table rather than having it judged on the ground, spectators walking past. At or near eye level, the more that is seen, the more that is to be seen. More photos ( and hopefully accompanying texts ) to resume later this week. Be well my friend. G.D.

Thank you for the well wishes southpaw, much appreciated. If you compete in a Scale Masters Qualifier or other similar competition then the airplane will be judged on a table so that it is approximately eye level to the seated jugdes. I have never had an airplane judged while it was sitting on the ground. Here is my Hellcat on the judging table at a Qualifier in Hemet, CA. I will say they do not normally have it set up so that half the airplane is in shadow while the other half is in sunlight!

I remember seeing this particular F6F quite a few months ago. VERY sharp!! Birds of a feather! G.D.

Thanks Bunsen (Ray?) For the time being, I'm going to see how things go at events in eastern Mass. & R.I. Most scale events mandate an actual flight at the meet so unless I provide a flight photo or video, chances are I'd be a spectator, watching others flying & having fun unless I brought along another plane to fly. The other caveat is I'm not a big fan of driving long ( 1 1/2 hrs. ) distances but that may change, depending on other factors. We'll see. G.D.
