I just noticed that the texan SNJ3 wings are wrong? The Stars n bars emblem should be on top of the left wing, not the right.

You're right--the national insignia is reversed on both Navy versions--the USAF FAC (forward air control) version is correct, though, so unless you don't mind the error, or don't care to do a quick repaint

will tell you "how to"--build the that.

I'm tootin' my own horn here, as I recolored the FAC (and wrote the "HOW TO") . I also did "Beetlebomb" the Blue Angels SNJ used in the late '40's as an "adversary" for the Hellcats and later Bearcats. It was supposed to represent a Zero, in mock combat. Originally, it even wore Japanese insignia.

Fix the files and send 'em back to Chip--there's always something in it for folks who help out.

what amazes me most is that it took me to build three of the things in different sizes, before I noticed. Doh!

Thanks for the advice and info
