So, as a few of you may remember, almost 6 months ago I raised some funds from the LSP community here to build a model for a local museum here, the Jefferson Barracks POW-MIA museum. I totally forgot to keep up with the in-progress thread I started, or to post a RFI thread once I had finished the model because I forgot my password to my account here. Oops.

 

Anyway, today I got the chance to present the model to the museum, as well as to the pilot who flew it, and boy I gotta say it was quite an experience. All of the people involved were super nice, and I couldn't have asked for better.

Unfortunately, I think this is the only picture of the finished piece up close that I took.

And here's me and Col. John W. Clark after I formally presented it to them.

 

Overall, I really enjoyed being able to build a model for the museum, and hopefully I'll get to do it again.
