  1. "This man is a strange mixture of heroism and cunning. If he had come to power in 1933, we would not be where we are today."

    ― Joseph Goebbels, diary entry on Winston Churchill, 7 May 1941


    Happy birthday Winston.

  2. It's rainy and gloomy here, which just makes me miss the UK all the more. 

  3. Fun fact! The crew of Hampden EA-F/P1333, the box  art subject for the Valom B Mk.I kit in 1/712, survived a crash-landing to become POWs in 1940. The pilot, pre-war regular MGP Stretton DFM, recorded an oral history for the IWM in 1978: https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/80003766

  4. This is the music that plays when someone tells me they don't think I can eat an entire pizza.



  5. Fighting a strong urge to build a Polish Sherman Firefly.

      Resistance is futile. Give in!

  6. Do any of my fellow US-based modellers know of a good source for Brengun Typhoons?

  7. I apologize for not being around much, but I miss all of you immensely. Some day hopefully I'll be able to go back to the UK. Not soon enough, though.

      I'm sure I speak for many of us here when I say we miss you too.

      You are indeed missed. Just check in from time to time so we know you're OK.

      We miss you too PC! Try as I might, I find my erudition to be nothing but a lame attempt to fill the void left by your absence. Come back soon so our fellow modellers won't be subject to my babbling any longer!





      PS. Let me know when you are up for the return trip. I'll help with the oars on the way over.
