I knew a fellow who was a radioman on Neptunes in the 50s. He told me a story about a crew who shut down both radials and just flew on the jet engines. Power generation was part of the radials, not the jet engines. So, when running on the jets electrical power was from the batteries. Unfortunately, the crew waited too long to restart the radials, the batteries were too low to crank the radials. Eventually, they lost all electrical power. IIRC, the aircraft was lost.

Hobbyboss should do one in 32nd... It'd be something I'd get!

I'm with Ernie, RCN GSB or even white with the red lightning.... Would be sweet.

I don’t want to sound pessimistic, but they’d probably install some P&W Wasps as pusher engines, for for the sake of « gizmologic accuracy »
