    Franz von Werra's Bf109 E4

    As I am on a WWII German theme and have a number of these kits and several conversions to go with them, it is time to build one up out of the box, or close to it. Otherwise this is going to be a plain plane just to look over the kit and how it builds. (I have 10 more with 3 conversions) It...

    MMM-2020 Do335 B-6 Nightfighter

    OK, I just couldn't bring myself to work on the Ju-52. I also have been needing to clean up my guest bedroom where the stash is located. I had something like 50 kits sitting on the twin bed in there. (no way someone could sleep on it) and had a bunch of stuff stacked all around. I knew there...

    Submitted Meng Fine and Flat tip Tweezers

    Being a watchmaker, I handle fine tweezers for hours a day 5 or more days a week. Then there is the modeling side which takes the same tools and puts them to other sometimes more challenging tasks. When I saw that Sprue Brothers had some new tweezers made by Meng it was time to step up and...

    All photos from Chattanooga posted.

    While not confirmed as yet and probably will be staying in one of the Motel 6 places a ways off, I am planning on going. As I only live a little over 300 miles from there it is an easy drive to get there. So, anyone else going?

    A while back I ran into the red box of death when trying to upload to an album. By accident I figured out this work around. It is quite simple but has to be done each session. I use Google Chrome for my browser. I am not sure what happens in other browsers but this is the solution in the...

    I ran across this plane being restored a little over a year ago. They made a lot of progress this last year. Here it is taking it's first flight in over 40 years. This is the first prototype which made a hard landing and was obtained and stored away up until about 10 years ago. I loved the...
