This edition of the Guest Artist Series is brought to you by Mitch Hoke and Jay Ferracane. Proceeds from this kit will go to the Wounded Warrior Project. This kit was inspired by the flight suits worn by military aviators and the winter camouflage found on some of their aircraft. The wings on the back and chest are emblematic of the wings that these crews wore on their flight suits after they completed the rigorous training required to fly their airplanes. The US flag on the one shoulder and the Wounded Warrior Project logo are in place of the squadron patches that would be worn on flight suits. The moniker of the kit “Anytime Anywhere” comes from a modo adopted by the aircrews of the workhorse C-130 transport plane and its ability to deliver whatever supplies were needed, anytime, anywhere.
