well she's finished....it's an Accurate miniatures Avenger with a Lone Star firebomber conversion and decals...the markings are for a tanker flown by Hemet valley Air services in the 1960's.

the kit was a straight forward build ...and much easier as i could leave out half the interior as it wasn't needed...the conversion was a straight fit and looks great...the decals are pretty thin and conformed pretty well to the surface...the orange is Gunze H14 that matches really well the original colur from the pics i have seen.
