1/72 Revell A-20C Boston

David has an interesting story to tell about
this model. At a recent Bayonet Club show, David started talking to
a middle aged gentleman, this gentleman turned out to be a Vietnam
Veteran and had served with 6RAR. He had been admiring the Club display
of RAAF aircraft and mentioned that he had tried to build a model of
Bill Newton's Boston, but due to ill health and the resultant muscle
tremors he had been unable to finish it.
David subsequently picked up the incomplete
Revell Boston, sanded it back, replaced the missing parts and repainted
it. Rod Spooner donated some Esci RAAF Boston decals and David managed
to use the artwork and serials.'=
The gentleman was very pleased with the
end result, and it now has the pride of place in his display cabinet.
Well done David.
