Albacore with touch ups

Dear All:
Here is the Albacore with the touch ups. It is siting on the un-build HMS Victorious from JSC. By the time of Torch she had Martlets instead of Fulmars.
In fact, I don't know where the Fulmars were embarked. I was able to find only one picture of the Albacore with the US Navy insignia and none of the Fulmar.

the list got biger

I found that Avengers and Piper L-4s also participated with the US Navy/Army in the Torch Operation. The L-4 needs a full wing, yellow nose and rings for the insignia. Again no pictures of the Avengers depicting the fuselage stars (oversized?) with the yellow ring since all of them are obscured by the folded wings.
Any pointers?

Nice tiny planes!!! Where do you find the Piper L-4? The FAM used it in the 1950s- That aircraftcarrier also looks interesting. A darle que es mole de olla!!! Regards, TONY.

the list keep growing

The Piper L-4 of Operation Torch and a few Grummans from JSC are also ready.
Unfortunately I print a lot faster than I can build.
Later I will post a better picture of the L-4 that reflected light in a weird way.
