Great resource.

I noticed that the wheel well is white and not chromate yellow or green.

Would love interior photos of this plane.

BTW, is that GHWB's Plane?

I built this kit as a kid and would truly love to find another again.

Italeri recently re-issued the Accurate Miniatures mould, so it shouldn't be terribly difficult to find.

Great close-ups of a classic aircraft - I especially appreciate the views of the wing folds. Thanks for posting this!

Julio, US Navy Aircraft had their wheel wells painted the underside colour.
