Decals have arrived but a bad cold lasting the past three weeks has slowed down just about everything except morning and afternoon naps.

1/48 Cessna 310 No progress
1/48 Argus Decals arrived. I affixed the tail flags only.
1/72 Yak-4 Cardboard templates cut.

 Greetings All.

  Yak -1 progressing slowly. Need to manufacture some exhausts. Everything else is pretty much
   Done.

  Gannet - progressing- wings attached. Rigging done. Tail section to be attached . All rigging and
  homemade decals applied. Then the fine motor skills will have to come into play. Pictures to follow.

   I've put the two 1/144 Stirlings on a temporary hold.

   I've looked at a PE-2 (again) and have got the basic bits for a Yak 4 marked out.

   Cheers

   Gordon

I just realized I omitted Marsh's SS Gothic from last year's yearbook poster. I will ensure it is added to this year's poster.

Forgive me Lou, but those were Cliff Strachan's very elegant words. . . I could not adequately express what SMM was too my own satisfaction. Cliff excelled at it.  ;)

Have you heard from Cliff? I tried several emails and never received a reply, however the emails did not generate a delivery failure message.

No, I haven't heard from him in quite a while. His profile says he was last active; January 27, 2016. Since he is from your end of the continent you might have better luck looking him up.
