    Product Description
    1. The crew of Veni Vidi Vici and the aircraft arrived in England in September of 1943. They flew out of Knettishall, England in the 562 Bomb Squadron of the 388th Bomb Group. The Navigator, Rolla Garretson, submitted the name of their plane, Veni Vidi Vici (I Came, I Saw, I Conquered) as fitting for their mission over Nazi Germany. The term Veni Vedi Vici was coined by Julius Caesar in 47 BC in a letter to the Roman senate describing his re-cent victory over Pharnaces II of Pontus in the Battle of Zela. The pilot, First Lieutenant Herbert W. Moore, of Edgewood, PA and the rest of the crew completed their 25 missions on 20 Feb 44. 20 of those missions were flown on Veni Vedi Vici. None of the crew of Veni Vidi Vici were killed, wounded, or became POWs, and they all successfully completed their 25 missions. They were very fortunate since only 25% of 8th Air Force bomber crews completed their 25 missions. The crew of Veni Vidi Vici truly did live out their aircrafts name  they came, they saw and they conquered!

    Water-slide Decals:
    1. Preparation: to achieve better result, a gloss or semi-gloss coat is very important. It will make a smooth layer which the decals will suction to and make it much easier to apply and set them.
    2. Cut out the decal you need (do it on cutting mat)
    3. Grab the decal with tweezers, place it on the surface of the water and leave it for about 20 seconds.
    4. Remove the decal from the water and place it on paper towel to remove any excess water.
    5. Apply decal solution to the part where the decal is to be placed.
    6. Slide the decal off the backing paper on to the model. Using a paint brush or cotton bud is a good way to do this without damaging the decal.
    7. Use the brush, knife or cotton bud to position the decal. Using your paper towel, gently dab the decal and soak up
