    I was going to paint my deck, but then I thought that I had better "repair" a few places!! Of course , under one rotten board, I founf=d two more!! I'm down to the footings now, so I guess we get a WHOLE NEW DECK!!!


    Maybe I'll build a model of what I want to build!! On the other hand... not much time for MODEL building!!

    I'm in the process of installing solar collectors on the roof, to heat the pool and extend the swimming season a bit.. that, and restoring a Douglas JD-1 Invader, out at the National Museum of Naval Aviation, that suffered damage from hurricanes over the past few years.

    That looks like great fun! A fellow took me through the restoration shop when I was there a few years ago and I remember thinking that would be the ultimate model builder's job! They were working on a Vindicator, among others, at the time. I would really like to see that one in its completed state.

    That is such an amazing museum! If anyone out there has never been to the Museum of Naval Aviation in Pensacola, make it a point to go there sometime. You won't be disappointed. My wife and daughter make fun of me for taking pictures of landing gear, propellors, engines, etc.:roll: Maybe someday they'll understand...

    I'm working on my Book and when that frustrates me I work on a piece of software I am creating with Visual Basic 6 called, Virtual Wood Engraving.

    Right now, in the restoration hangar are: an A6M Zero, the JD-1 Invader, CH37C Mohave, XP2V-1 Neptune (the Truculent Turtle), Lockheed Model 10 Electra (think Amelia Earhart), Brewster SB2A Buccanneer & F2A Buffalo, PB2Y Coronado, the control car for a Blimp, and an A4, undergoing the Blue Angel paint treatment, to replace the F11F at the Pensacola Regional Airport.

    the SB2U Vindicator, btw--is on display now in the 'between the wars' area and is drop-dead gorgeous.

    Where did they find a Brewster Buffalo??? That's another one I want to see close up. Also, it seems I had heard that there was a Devastator somewhere, but there was some haggling over who had the rights to it.

    I'm currently working on 1/50 IAF Avia S-199. It's a repainted model of Czech Avia by Marek. I bought it few years ago originally intending to repaint as IAF bird. Only some time later did i realize that Marek has IAF version readily. Anyway, this is my second attempt, as i wasn't happy how the first one turned out. However with this repaint i managed to missalign aircraft number badly (as it stretches over two parts of fuselage). Besides color printer at work decided to play "drum life low" trick on me and as a result, starboard wing has nasty strip of bleached color. Anyway, i intend to finish it before deciding either to put on display or trash it.
