Bonjour! Ce jour est arrivé!! I built that Spitfire back in 2005 or 2006. An article came out in the local newspaper about a Mexican pilot in Normandy in WW2. Me being Mexican, it immediately caught my attention and decided I would build it. Since he flew with the RCAF, he hasn’t received as much historic publicity as the other Mexican Squadron in WW2, the 201 unit out in the Pacific Ocean. I started doing some research and quickly I figured out Pérez-Gómez’s details. The picture was the best I could find back then. I also noticed it was 443rd Sqdn – I had already built McLeod’s Spitfire.
The build currently rests in Corpus Christi, Texas. It is a permanent resident in the USS Lexington, the Aircraft Carrier turned Museum, on their model airplane exhibit. I plan to build another one in the future, and this time I will most definetely check out more info on your blog. Tu as beaucoup d’information très intéressantes sur le 443ème Squadron!
Jacques just woke up in a message he just sent…
The original post written in last January will follow.
Jacques doesn’t follow this blog. He has no idea I started building his vintage Monogram Mosquito. I think I should break the news.
