I appreciate what i have recieved so far. in a few days i will try to post up a few pictures of the model we restored. from what i was told, the model was originally a wind tunnel model and was given to VMGR 152 at one point with the paint scheme and tail number of aircraft 149808. it was in rough shape to say the least. the pods had fallen off and half the props had blades broken off from falling from where it hanging. even the belly of the model was scared and the nose and wing tips had dents and other disfiguring marks.
it will be some time before i am able to finish the history br
