Signed up for this one.

Andy, you have so far built all the same aircraft I have an interest in. Now this is the biggie, got to love me the big beast of a Beau - two engines closely followed by an aircraft.

Oh if you didn’t know don’t use the term “Whispering Death” as it has been proven the Japs didn’t call it that. It was some journalist said they did before the Beau was even in the Pacific theatre.
