Was shopping at a local parts/ hardware store ( princess Auto, similar to the US' Harbo(u)r Freight. I was surprised to see a stack of Heller P-80s in there for 10 or 11 bucks. Sold ! lol

I didn't even know Heller did a P-80.

Looks good in Canadian markings.

I have the old Airfix kit that I am marking as a Tuskegee Airman 1946.

Might be the same kit, Airfix and Heller were 'as one' at one stage.
Kit's Rule 1 ) Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage
Kit's Rule 2) The backstory can always be changed to suit the model

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Hey, so am I! Unless I decide to make it Korean War Tuskegee in the back story.
