So my grandson and I are at the Lunken Airport open house last spring and we're watching the B-17 Aluminum Overcast giving rides. And wouldn't you know it some of the folks selling souvenirs that day also have some models to sell. I hate when th[...]
AMT 1936 Ford. 1/25th. Kit from the 60's that has recently been rereleased. Latest release version has globs of molded plastic on the bottom side like a resin slush mold that needed clean up before any building could start. a couple days worth o[...]
