Hey guys, maybe this is one someone can help me out on. The museum is having a Helldiver restored for the collection at Dayton by Mike Rawson, but everyone I talk to knows nothing abou it. Does anyone know how close it might be to being complete?

Type- Helldiver- in the search engine on this site and it will turn up loads of info and pictures for you. Including pictures that are less than a month old...

Is it really that much of a problem if someone asks a question that has already been discussed?

Mustangdriver:

Ask, ask, ask!

If it has been already discussed, someone will either provide you with the information or will point you in the right direction.

Not everyone is aware of the features of a given web-site, and some people -such as myself- quite often write something and then later, realize that it had already been covered.

I do not believe that it is an offense to ask about something that has been covered, and we should be more hospitable to the new guys.

Just my dos centavos.

I agree Tulio! It never hurts to ask.

Hey Mike,
Thanks for the info. I am a volunteer there, and always see the empty spot in the hangar where it is going. I can't wait to see her. Keep up the great work.

Hi Mustangdriver; General Metcalf and Greg Hassler were here on the 30th for an inspection and were happy with the restoration. We agreed on a completion date of June first. They have decided to paint it after shipping to save on marking up the paint job. That hole will be filled soon. Thanks Mike
