Here are the “Glamour shots” of my latest completion.  This is my first ever build of a Baby Bug in 1:48 scale.  I knew I had to build it once I saw the VMFA-122 decals from Flying Leathernecks.  There is another hi-viz scheme for VMFA-122 carrying the “Crusaders” markings that might just have to be built as well.  (And I can’t wait to see it! ~Ed. 🙂)
