Wow, we're collecting a nice number of shots here!
Looks like we're going to compete with flickr!
I give that landing a 9 . . . on the Richter scale.

Whew! Intense but fun weekend in Oshkosh. Your mallard got to help out the guest speaker at the EAA banquet when he ran into computer problems... never thought I'd ever be of any use whatsoever to somebody who was on the design team of the F-117 and now the QSST.  ::bow:: Life is strange. Here are the obligatory photos. Not pictured... the -14F temperature last night and this morning! Am now back in balmy central Illinois where it's a toasty +9!  ::sick::

Ah, what were you in the OSH for?  Ill be heading your way this weekend.  My fraternity has a divisional conference in Columbus, OH this weekend, so Thursday we all head out there.  Should be an interesting trip...

I'm lucky enough to have a book coming on on the life of aircraft designer John Monnett (of Sonex and Monnett Experimental Aircraft) and needed to rescan some of his old photos, plus they were having a builder workshop at Sonex this weekend and I offer to help out with that. Finally, they had a local EAA event featuring Lockheed Skunkworks engineer Pete Buck (who got his start working for Monnett 30 years ago), and a friend who lives there offerred to put me up overnight, so how could I refuse! I live over 350 miles away from there... which was nice since it was a balmy +9 here and -14 up there this morning!

Its a Super Widgedon.... Owned by the same family since new, no salt water (just Lake Champlain) If i suddenly won the powerball, I'd seriously consider adding it to the list of things I'd buy.

Here's a couple of pictures I've taken of some of the models I built. The first is 1/32 scale Hawker Hurricane (although I have yet to find some markings for it), surrounded by time appropriate items. The second is a 1/32 Canadair Sabre, painted to represent the Golden Hawks aerobatic team. This particular aircraft is now on public display here in Sarnia, but in much worse for wear condition. I'd love to see pictures of other models if you got em!

It's only neat because I just finally set it up again after moving last September.  Normally you can't see the desk.   ::drinking::
