'To be honest I have been working on this model exactly 5 1/2 years, a total of 4300 hrs and I'm proud that I have finally finished it.

The folding wings of all the aircraft are scratch built as well as all PE parts were done by myself.

The fuselages for the Hellcats came from
Italy and the Avenger from Academy.
423 figures came from various sources, all the rest are scratch built.

And just to make sure I would definitely do it again, the next one is already in the early planning stages."
