so, this is an A model??? I noticed the lack of thimble nose for the radar)

I wish I still has my R.G.Smith prints from boyhood (the COMPLETE set!!! of Douglas aircraft!!!) -- has several 124s that would've made great loading screens

ps: i have the Air Force Legends book on pdf, if that'll help.

side note: one of my fondest childhood memories is of seeing one come into Santa Monica Airport* for their annual air shows in the 1960s. My parents house was 50-70 yards east of the airport, just north of the flight path. EVERYTHING flew by our house!! They always had the cargo door open, and the ramps down to everyone could go inside and look around. Unfortunately, being an acrophobe (worse now because of my vision issues) 7-9 year old Kevin was too afraid to climb the ladder to the cockpit to look around the flight deck. 

 

*also home to Douglas Santa Monica plant -- where the B-19 was built!*
