I don’t know if anyone in our audience is “into” scale modeling, but Karaya (Poland) has resin kits of the N3N, #72005 is on wheels and #72006 is on floats. Don’t know when I will get around to building them, but I ordered both today:
UPDATE (from post comment):
Had a great time at the Warhawk Show flying formation with their N. Patrick Rediker was flying the museums airplane. He spent four years flying a Red Baron Stearman and he can fly very tight formation. Look on Youtube for “Warhawk Warbird Roundup and there are a few flying shots of us. Saturday morning I took 94 year old P-47 ace Dick Fleisher up and I let him fly all but the T/O and landing. He did a great job of flying the airplane and that was a lot of fun. The afternoon flights were in 100+ degrees and brutal in an open cockpit. Was 104 when I took off for home Sunday afternoon but had a good flight. DON
UPDATE: I just added a link to the video of the two “N”s flying formation at the Warhawk Flying Museum in June of 2013.
I was losing track of various documents and video, so I created this page to track the stuff. You are welcome to visit – I’m glad to share…
This week I had the opportunity to take a trip to Wright-Pat (i.e. The National Air Force Museum) with Harvey Alley, a long-time friend who was an aircraft mechanic in WWII. Some EAA types may recognize his name in relation to aircraft photography:
Tim Knutson sent this link to a story of bureau # 1760, from Flying Magazine several years back.
Fewer and fewer chances to give rides to WW II naval aviators. If you get a chance, do it while you still can. Don’t let it be a regret!
I have added a page with links to Photo Galleries of restorations that I have run across on the web.
I am continuing my work on the “Fleet” page. This page will shows all “complete” aircraft – that is to say – no basket cases. I appreciate any and all help to expand / maintain this directory of N3N aircraft.
