I'd like one of each!

Not kidding. I think I'd build the clipped wing first and use the color scheme of Li'l Butch hanging in The Smithsonian. A friend took a bunch of pictures of it.

I've got the gear all ready to put in! Not from crashed UM's either, I've still got a half a dozen in pretty good condition. Every time new UM gear comes out I buy it but never quite get around to sticking it in a plane.
