Modeling on vacation-the Arizona experience
April 4, 2014 in Uncategorized
Just flew in from Tucson, Arizona, and boy, are my arms tired. Went out there to visit my brother and his wife, and of course, had to find a way to work models into it. Can’t survive a week without the glue, as you all well know. My sonny-son Kyle was with me, and it happens my brother builds amazing World War One R/C planes too. A trip to the Hobby-Town on Speedway boulevard followed (love that street name), where Kyle picked up the new Revell 1/48 Stearman. My brother had a Williams Brothers Le Rhone engine model, and a Dragon JS-2 Stalin I had sent him years ago. The Stalin was mostly assembled, but the individual link tracks had stopped him. That’s my meat, and it was done in one evening, surrounded by empty Bud bottles. Next day it was sprayed with Testors glass bottle enamels and striped with kid’s acrylics. Kyle built the engine in two nights, and I slapped some paint on it with brother’s airbrush. So below are the photos of the LeRhone on a custom photo background, and the Stalin prowling an Arizona backyard in search of Lizards, not Panthers. Next will be an installment on the R/C flying outing, and most of the 255 pics I took were at the Pima Air Museum, featuring some REAL good stuff.
