Digging this, one of my fav planes of all times. Turned out real nice. I always find those arrows entertaining. Can any one tell me the meaning/purpose of those?

Nice job

What did you think of the kit?
Any problems?

Its a pretty nice kit for $10. It is simplified but nicely detailed. Decals are very nice. Biggest bugaboo is holes for screws. I glued mine and filled the holes.I believe the arrows were unit markings for the USS Bunker Hill, the ship this bird served on.

Great kit for $10 bucks. Thanks for the info on the arrows, the designers really were thinking out side the box on those.

Beautiful build! Every time I see one of these I'm reminded of the TV show Black Sheep Squadron (or something like that).

Ten bucks, such a deal!!!! Excellent work throughout. Most interesting is all the "stuff" in the cockpit for a WWII pilot to check on and to use. That's a long way from WWI canvas, wires, and a prayer.
