October 28, 2001: PB4Y-2 Privateer

This model is dedicated to the memory of my father, Robert H. Ward, who flew the PB4Y-2 on flare-dropping missions during the Korean War in the early 1950′s. He passed away on November 9, 2001. I built it in the fall of 2001. He never got to see it, but it was on display at his memorial service.

I brought this model to the October 2001 and January 2002 BayLUG meetings. I took pictures from those meetings, which can be seen on my site. Also, the the BayLUG website features pictures taken by others (October 2001 and January 2002)
