Friends, Americans, iModelers…(with apologies to Will Shakespeare).
As part of my 'Higher Call' diorama I was struggling with the process of making realistic working propellers (a real holy grail of aircraft modelers). The estimable David Thomas sent me a private message asking for my postal address and just a short while later this arrived...
The 'propblur' company is a small outfit that is clearly dedicated to the hobby and put in a lot of research into this vexed question of how to pose aircraft in flight with realistic props. This is a link to their website which showcases some of their work.
I am really looking forward to experimenting with this wonderful gift, but much more importantly it strengthens the respect that I have for iModeler as a community, reminds me of the good in the world, and reinforces my sense of brotherhood in this essentially secluded hobby.
Thank you very much David, and thanks iModeler.
