    Of course after I finish my Trumpy P40B does a potential new tool P40B is expected. Wonder if N2A gunsight and reflector on windscreen will be properly produced? The floor issue on the Trumpy P40B is an easy fix. Lots of rivets to blend and I also used Roy's wheels. Trumpy P40B

    Saw a Pink Panther this year. Not sure if it was Old Dominion Classic (Richmond,VA) or Model Classic (Fairfax, VA). It was pretty cool.

    Great work from the little guys! Kudos to you Tom for inspiring the imagination of these young minds. I have my son involved in modelling too. Abeit, he spends enough time on xBox. I attached a pic from his effort this year. He (10) won his age group 13 & Under. He used an airbrush for paint. His first time using putty worms and liquid frisket for masking, mottle with brush, decal setting solution and CA glue. I coached him, demo then your on your own. I helped him mask the canopy using Eduard masks. Highlights was watching his face light up when he removed the masks and CA gluing his fingers together. We are starting a Dad & Lad OOB project. A pair of Greek F16's Block 50 using Tamiya's 1:72 offering. Now if we can just find time between soccer and ice hockey.

    Absolutely! Well, for me at least. This is a great PE tool as well Brass Assist Roller Set. Thing about these tools is they sit in my drawer for a long, long time and I sometimes question why I spent the money for these. Then that moment comes when the tool is handy and saves the day.
