  1. Kursad, I just got my copy yesterday. Excellent job as usual, but you really need to sell the small common sheet separately, as the decals in these kits are completely unusable (just plain wrong and also at the end of their useful lives).

The website's address is http://www.usshornetmuseum.org and we also started a blog "Hornet Buzz" at http://www.usshornetmuseum.org/hornetbuzz/ to announce website updates and talk about the photo collections. Please check the website and the blog regularly as we are planning to update the website with new photo collections and documents every few days in the near future. Without further ado, here is more information about the website: The USS Hornet Museum
  4. I guess I had to reply to this thread as someone who has grown up building these PM kits as a kid in Turkey. Unfortunately, during that time, these were the only affordable and easy-to-find kits around and although everybody mostly hated them even then, there wasn't an alternative until the model kit business suddenly exploded after the first Gulf War and every little toy shop was filled to the brim with Italeri and ESCI kits. After that many years and completely scraping those kits from my memory, the first time I saw one of them in a hobby shop here in the US for $10+, I was just beyond sho
