TOPIC: A look to the past.

A look to the past. 10 Apr 2017 08:49 #1

As it was my birthday yesterday I thought a retrospective look at where I was in the hobby 32 years ago would be fun.

This little dio was heavily influenced by Verlinden, don't you think?



Yeah, I am not so impressed with my figures and weathering skills, but it is a journey!

Happy Birthday!

While it may be rough in execution, it's impressive in constitution.

Happy belated Birthday! As to the dio, we all started someplace along that point. Looks like a nice little dio to me!

I dream of a world where a chicken can cross the road without having its motives questioned.

Happy Birthday, mine was 2 wks ago. Nice dio even for a rookie at the time.I did this B-17 back in the mid 70's. I didn't fill any seams back then. I have since built another one. Gary S. :oldguy

I did, year before last, but never took any beauty shots of it. Plenty of build pics. Need to install the pitot tube and reinstall the broken off tail guns. It's in the "Bit O Lace", markings. Gary S.

Thanks Luiz, I have kept some of that business style, but my builds and weathering have changed drastically!
