A co-worker along with our kicking and screaming wives made a trip up north to Port Clinton,Ohio, to the Liberty Aviation Museum and Tel-Con 2018. Some excellent work was on display and the bonus was being able to walk through their excellent museum. They are currently rebuilding a PT boat to place in Lake Erie for rides, as well as building a fully air worthy Ford Tri-Motor. There’s a long history of the Tri-Motor fairing people and cargo out to the various islands on Lake Erie right up to the1960’s.
There were well over 200 models on the tables and below are pics of models that caught my eye. The Twilight Zone TV, when turned on, played Rod Sterling reading his opening dialogue welcoming you to the Twilight Zone. As you listened the screen would start bulging out and the rabbit head would appear behind the screen as it was trying to jump into the room.. Very unique. Another item that impressed me was the van with the celestial scene on it’s roof that extended down it’s sides. That’s not a decal but airbrush painting. Excellent work indeed. And as luck would have it I was able to pick off two Gold’s and two Silvers in 1/48 props. And real surprise was that my little Testors F8F-2 Bearcat took best Plane. Who would have thunk it. All in all a very nice day.
