I’m retired after a long public service career. I’ve enjoyed model building, seems my entire life. It was only after a visit to the Evergreen air museum in McMinnville years ago that I discovered the world of IPMS shows, and a bunch of model geeks that share my beloved hobby. I’ve never looked back. This is just plane fun.

Hasegawa 1/72 scale He 111 H-6

Hasegawa 1/48 scale Nakajima C6N1 Myrt

As I built this project I couldn't help but recall an incident that my father told me about while he was stationed at the seaplane base on Saipan, at Tanapag harbor during World War 2. A fleet of U.S. war ships had entered the harbor and remai[...]
