This is the second model I built for my Dad and that is on display at his house. Again, this one was built copying a real plane that was in the photos my Dad took while deployed with the US Army as an aircraft mechanic in Vietnam from 1964 to 1965 (Nha Trang).

The tail numbers were not clear in the photos so those don’t match but the rest of the markings are accurate to the plane in the photos. Including the small Playboy bunny’s on either side of the cockpit glass and on the front landing gear bay door. I just handcut them out of a large sized white decal I had left over from another kit. They’re a bit of a mess up close but from a distance they seem to convey the look good enough. Good enough to spark the memory in Dad when he looks at it so I’m ok with it.
