Ok, so I'd planned on doing something for the GB, and I still intend to, but while taking a break from chapter 5, where the 86th FG gets it's first P-47s (and wrecks a whole slew of em!) I started thinking about doing a photo recon plyon on my Academy kit.

Well, one thing led to another, and while taking a quick break this morning, I grabbed the K24 camera from my Accurate Miniatures F-6A kit (I know, the recon pylon used a K25, but the basic shape works here) and some soda can aluminum and.... voila!

This one will be finished as one of the four 86th birds profiled in the book, John Dolny's "Sandra Lee".

Let me know what you think!

Looks the business.
A very interesting and rarely seen modification.
Looking forward to seeing it all come together.
