As I see the "welcomes to new members" I think back to (I think 1992) when I stared carving wood. I started carving aircraft in 1993 and have no idea of how many I completed.  I hope the "newbies" will enjoy SMM as much as I have.

Anyway, I seem to have developed something called peripheral neuropathy, a loss of feeling in the feet and hands (so far) and I'm dropping things that shouldn't be dropped and less than steady on my feet.

My final project is a B 24, trying to hold onto the small parts (like the guns) is enough to tell me that, at the young age of 82, it's time to put my knives aside and find something else to do.

I have enjoyed being part of SMM very much and will frequent the site regularly and perhaps even contribute comments.

I will most certainly miss the hobby (some call it artistry in wood)  and am thankful that I can still play my harmonicas....sitting down!

Next project I'll give step by step painting progress.

Aichi Val is already underway!

Airbrush & compressor was a gift from wife a few years ago - I don't think it was too expensive - maybe $125.  It sat in the box until just this spring when I finally bit the bullet and tried to learn a new skill.... it's been frustrating how many pitfalls I encounter:  clogs, spitting, puddling etc.  more mistakes than success!  but it can give that fade transition and occasionally I achieve a decent spot cammo...  now attempting to produce a narrow line...

I've been thinking about getting an airbrush? Any pros and cons you can offer?

I wish I could paint like that. On your next project, give us a stroke by stroke tutorial on how you did it.
