I built this kit during what you might call the “medieval” period of my model-making career. It was after the Golden Age of being 10, 11 and 12 years old, when my pals and I loved our childish little airforces as we pitted them against each other in outdoor miniature battles, but before the current older-me era of greater skills, airbrushing, and the Internet — which, to put it succinctly, has cut both ways by a) offering access to an audience community and a ton of pro-tips, but also b) making it “matter” more (too much?) whether a model is pleasing to anyone but me. When I built this model in my 20s I thought it was great and am perfectly satisfied with it today.
This week my son and I are using the “Yankee Guerrilla” in our Utah Beach-themed, 1/72-scale table top game — it has so far taken on and destroyed a SdKfz 7/2 37mm Flak halftrack — and so since it was already out I decided to give it the “in flight” treatment, the results of which you see here, as the bomber buzzes the control tower after surviving another mission.
The ‘inflight’ photos you take are very realistic. Much more than the plastic circles we used when I was young.
