Almost half the year gone already. Members have been rather quiet lately so lets hear from every one.

1/72 Liberator Mk V nearing completion and 1/32 Stinson Gullwing about half done. I hope to complete both by the end of the month.

Just finishing the Two-Up drawings for the Strombecker Boeing 307 Stratoliner.  I have the wood and looking forward to the start.

Wings on an Anson, should be finished this week as long as it keeps raining!

I keep putting off completing the B24 and the Tracker...both need engines....I'll probably make another helicopter.....I think a Sikorsky S 51.....I'm easing into a Boeing Vertol Labrador....And then there's a bunch of songbirds that need feet and mounts, but that's another story that goes back at least 15 years. Is there an award for procrastination?

Lou,

Thanks for the update...it will get me off my "duff" and put some photo's on
the website...I love those "Strombecker" kit  jets and I have just completed
the F-86 Sabre (done in RCAF decals) and the F-84 Thunderjet...just need to
photo them and get them on.

I also have The Strombecker FJ-2 Fury, P-80 Shooting Star and the F-94
Starfire almost done...will post when finished.

Not sure what has changed. But it is certainly a great to see the increased number of posts over the last couple of weeks!! I check the web site most evenings and dare I say (to paraphrase an old commercial) - "A day without one or two postings on the web site is like a day without sunshine". I always look forward to seeing the progress and completed models of others.

Working on a Gee Bee model D. I just started doing some of the paint detail. Unfortunately I developed a nerve disorder that affects the dexterity in my fingers. so the model is on hold for a while. Fortunately I should make a full recovery but it will take some time.  :-\

I hope you get well soon. Wood carving is therapeutic.
