Thanks everyone...a lot of work went into this one! For those that aren't into history, my model is acting as a (LSO) or Landing Signal Operator. They relied on paddles to direct the pilots inbound for landing.

You've done it again James!!! I love the addition of the handsome guy on the deck! (tee hee, I think I know who it is!) Beautiful editing. You are an inspiration! My Dad and two uncles fought in WWII. Dad was a fighter pilot. Thanks for creating this image for us to enjoy!

Jay (is it OK to use that name?)...I truly think that this one and your B17(?) taking flak were Grand Prize winners. Others of yours were also brilliant. They are all winners to me and I'm glad that the judges have honored you with a winner!
