    Anyone know this kit?

    I had that kit back in 1967. I was 10 years old. I thought it was the coolest kit ever. I had my sisters husband help me build it because he built car models and painted them even so obviously he had superior talents. It's memory's like this that make me smile!! Paul

    F-35 news roundup

    I've done some initial research and have not found anything bad said or implied about the Gripen. It's all been very positive and this is from several sources. As for cost I would assume the Gripen is approx 1/2 the cost of an F35. Let not fall into the "senior citizen trap" and make purchases on what the man at the door told us we needed. Big and flash is nice, but is it what we need or want to pay for??? My 2 cents worth. Thanks Paul

    F-35 news roundup

    I've thought that the F-35 would be the obvious choice for Canada. It new and modern, easily adaptable to our US ally, parts, maintenance, even airbases would be easily applied across borders. But I've had a change of heart. Whats everybody's opinion on the SAAB J39 Gripen E. I think this could be the winner if given a chance. Paul

    The Book Thread

    Vampire!

    Thanks for the quick reply. First noticed the Vampire about July. I was at a Garden centre on HWY 24 and it was coming in to land. Very loud whine. Great to see though. Thanks again Paul

    Kitty Hawk 1/32 T-6G Force Arienne Katangeise

    Great subject choice! Love the Katangan /Congo era. Biafra as well! I've a couple of T6's in the stash to build in various African schemes. You've done an excellent job with yours. Don't hesitate to use your Zotz decals on another interesting subject such as you've done here. Cheers Paul
  12. Great old hobby store known as Aviation Books - more commonly called Ed's place. It was in the Kitchener/Waterloo area. Closed several years ago. Anyone know what happened to all his stock or more importantly what happened to ED?? Great memories. Just curious. Paul
