My Latest Creation

To All,

Below is my latest P-47. I have built an ME-109, but I love the way the P-47 handles and survives mid-airs. It should be ready to combat in a few days.

A Date in Joplin, MO

Ok,

I'm going to say it if no one else will. It's got to be on the 1st, 8th, 15th or the 22nd. Let's all go for a day or it will be too late by the time we decide.

1, 2, 3 ... go. :D
