All very nice. The Tigercat is particularly interesting. I'd like to know which kits these are from.

What an unusual collection of types - most interesting. For me the Macchi is the best - for obvious reasons!

Those are all fantastic models. My favorites are the B-26 & B-47.

I had no idea the Navy flew the B-47. Thank you for passing on this tidbit of knowledge!
