About Bill Plunk (wbill76)

Like many, I started out in the hobby as a kid building airplanes to hang from my bedroom cieling.

I just want to know if the driver's mirror should be on the right side or the left. The Dragon kit instruction shows it to be on the left side. Which is correct? Also there is not painting instruction for the interior. What did you paint yours?

Noli, I didn't paint the interior since this one is "buttoned up" but if I had, it would've been "elfenbein" or Interior Buff (the MM color description) given when the Pumas were produced. Henk, Italeri gives you two mirrors...guess they figured it was better safe than sorry! If the Puma had been captured by the British, would they have moved the mirror to the opposite side I wonder? :-)
