This Week In Military/Aviation History 2 - 8 February from Warbirds Online by Tom Kwiatkowski Sr.
Well Folks, did you ever notice that the only time you feel time is slowing down is when you are waiting for something to arrive? It seems forever when you check on something’s delivery date and it has still got 2-4 weeks to go. Amazing isn’t it? I don’t know why I torture myself by buying FineScale Modeler’s Great Scale Modeling special editions. I like to think I’m a pretty good modeler, but when I look at the photo and read the caption of a gorgeous looking kit and find out it’s scratch-built or enhanced with this and that, or even built straight out of the box but weathered with pastels or polished to a mirror-finish, first it inspires me to work smarter and not harder (see last week’s post) and then when that fizzles out, it puts reality right in front of my face. I don’t know how many times, even though I’m really careful, I lose one or two small parts to the rug-monster or glance at the instructions, build something, and find out my glance missed an important part and I have to try taking it apart to add what I missed. It’s always somethin’! Oh well, let’s get down to some serious history, shall we?
