WTF?

If I understand the blurb correctly, they tooled new *smooth* blank sides for them.  If that's the case, it becomes a whole lot more easier to add new etched sides of different styles.

There's no way I would I buy one of these just to strip them though.

I'm waiting for the one where Hitler looses it infront of his men and is spoofed by a thousand Youtube users.
You've crossed the walls, excelled
Further along through their hell
All for my heart, I watch you kill
You always have, you always will
Now spread your wings and sail out to me

Not to pile on but Eisenhower talking to the 101st Airborne.....Omaha Beach? Not.

Best wishes, Dave
If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

It's possible .. over 400 of these planes were in the Fleet Air Arm..

Not with US Markings though. Even any British carrier groups were not responsible for support over the invasion task forces. That fell to the RAF and 9th Air Force on D-Day and the first few days. I don;t recall seeing any carriers in the Task group organizations  but do recall several ASW Hunter Killer groups operating to the south to interdict any Uboats.

But I digress. I got all the Navy cars when they came out and that's it for MTL Collector cars for me. But the Miltary collectors series seemd to do ok.

Extremely valid point, I mean, these are being painted on the sides of scale "foob" passenger cars.
