Really nice work on those, Ken!

I love the very colorful scheme on the Val. I still need to get another SBD kit, since mine ended up converted into a USAAF A-24 Banshee for use on Java and the very early days in New Guinea, before the USAAF decided to pull the plug on the A-24.

I've had an Airfix Val built for nearly two years now waiting for me to lay a paintbrush on it and after seeing that beauty of yours mine is staying naked !

Nice work. The Val is a lovely kit. I made one last year, really enjoyed it.
It's not worth doing something unless someone, somewhere, would much rather you weren't doing it.
