The Passing of Brian J. Tears 11 Jul 2019 10:37 #1

My longtime friend and master pattern maker, Brian J. Tears passed away yesterday. He fought the good fight to the end.

Brian had just recently been released from the hospital and was becoming more active here on Modeler's Alliance. He has forgotten more about the Pz III than I will ever know.

It hits hard when you meet the man and his family (his daughter meant the World to him and he was so proud). His love of the details he would get into and the lack of finishing models was what made him my kindred spirit. Those of you with Tiger Model Designs Pz.kpfw. III products will probably notice that it was Brian's handiwork. He also enjoyed the DAK very much and was excited about Dr. John's tutorial.

Well, it surely means that I don't know
