Scale Reference Books
The subject I chose to model is Maj. Robert Petit’s Mrs. Virginia aircraft, which served with the 1st Air Commando Group in Burma during World War II. I would consider the cockpit featured in this article to be sport scale: finished somewhere between the bare minimum and museum quality.
Above: Here is a detailed photo showing the nose art of the full-size aircraft and its pilot. Below: There are several scale documentation books available online and in hobby shops.
