    A visit to the USAF Museum in Dayton OH

    Thanks for the good news! I haven't been there for several years, so this trip will be extra-interesting - I just might start taking my camera there again 😊. Worth a try, anyway. (I'll be making my first pilgrimage to the Memphis Belle.)

    A visit to the USAF Museum in Dayton OH

    CorsairMan, Compliments on a nice article & photos. I bookmarked your site for further poking around. 🙂 I live less than 50 miles from Wright-Pat, and have gone to the museum from time-to-time for a good part of my life, both this version and the earlier one (my first trip there was Back in 1960 at age 11, and I'm getting ready spto go again soon). Photography inside the hangers has always been a maddening proposition; I don't remember the details exactly, but the story goes that, many years ago, someone from the Disney organization, after touring the museum with the director, suggested that subdued lighting would enhance the dramatic effect of the exhibits. And we've been living with it ever since ... Cheers

    What are your top 5 dream model kits?

    Thanks, Mike, I'll dig a little deeper for them. The places I buy from online (several) have never had any, so I figured there just aren't any out there. I'd really like to have one, or two ...

    SpaceX - Falcon Heavy

    The two outside boosters flying back to Canaveral and landing side-by-side is one of the most dramatic things I've seen in a long time. Absolutely breathtaking. Go SpaceX!!!
  7. Well, I have been around for a long, long years ...
  8. Sounds good to me - in fact, it sounds excellent. Thanks!
  9. After posting the following over on the Test Post Clubhouse, I thought maybe I should post it here as well: Hello everybody. My story is, I'm sure, a familiar one; I recently got back into scale modeling after an absence of several decades (5). I'm of the opinion that, like many other things, building models is more fun when you are doing it with other kids 😉. As a youngster I slapped them together out-of-the-box, put on the decals and voila! I'm at the same skill level as then, more or less, except now I also paint them as well as I can. I'm looking forward to learning from you all, e.g. painting, filling seams, etc., and to sharing some builds. Being brand-new to the whole painting thing, I'll certainly have some questions on the topic going forward. My main interest is aircraft, but I've also done a ship since getting back in, and plan to do a little armor and a car or two along the way. As for aircraft, my areas of interest are WWII and the Vietnam era, with a bit of the Korean conflict thrown in, and I'm attracted largely to Navy subjects (U.S. and Japan), though I have built a P-40E (AVG) since my return to the hobby. Like I wrote in my first test post, happy to be here 😀.
