2022 builds, and a Happy New Year to all!

This year was less productive than I had hoped. I only completed 4 kits: A 1/72 Eduard Fokker Dr.I triplane (mine is on the right, and my adult son's is on the left) as part of our club "Fokker" build theme The 1/48 Amusing [...]

1/35 PzKpfw Nb.Fz Panzerkampfwagen Neubaufahrzeug

“No idea, Joe. Tell em it’s some kind of Wonderbug Machine.”

April 1945: the US Army's Shermans are overrunning airfields faster than the AAF can shoot them up. As some GIs poke their Garands into the backs of Luftwaffe scientists and groundcrew and shuffle them off the base, other Americans take a [...]

Imitation-sincerest form of flattery?
