Joe--that has got to be one of the best ones yet!
I doubt the wings could support that ordinance. Did 'they' modify to carry that wing load?

The best touch is the 'Rescue' decal on an open cockpit plane. Cracks me up.

Great work.

Joe

Well done!!! I bet she needs a strong headwind to get off the ground. :-)

Perhaps the tyres should be flattened with all that weight (maybe there should be some induced "wing sag" too. It just goes to show how much ordnance has grown in less than 100 years.
