I am putting together one of the lovely Pendraken 10mm Hamilcar gliders. Unfortunately, it broke in transit, so that makes it tougher to put together by my usual means – guess work (who looks at a manual?) Pendraken kindly offered to send a replacement, but I am impatient.

I found these WW2 aircraft recognition cards online, which helped me put it together. The cards show aircraft from different angles, whereas your typical photos are limited in their variety of views

Sea Otter Reconnaissance (1E-R)

Very interesting stuff on that site, and from Ames, Iowa (?).
The spotter playing cards are cool too!
