R.I.P Ruzlkampf (Russ Camp) - You will be missed

Recommended Posts

I agree and hope that our LSP team will be willing to create a memorial along those lines.

I'm hoping that my proposed group build will perform this function.

Wow... I am certainly shocked to hear this news.

 

I always made sure to check any builds Russ had going on as the first order of business when reading LSP. He was truly an inspirational builder and all around good egg. I's hard to beleive we won't get to see anymore of his amazing (not to mention speedy!) builds.

 

A sticky in the Group Build forum to put all his builds would be a great idea.

 

Hand Salute Sir. You will be missed.

I like the idea of a group build in Russ's honor, Kev, but would suggest that it might be fitting also to somehow gather his threads -- or links to them -- in a single, permanent, prominent place on this website.

RIP Russ. I really don't know what to say....

 

I don't normally join group builds (no reason) but count me into this one for sure

I'd be in for GB Russville.

 

I think perhaps a scratch-build (or three) in his Honour would be appropriate.

A special note to all who have remembered Russ so well. You have written wonderful memories of this man, who I never knew. What a superb tribute that so many have commented on this thread.

I think we can do both in one. We will indeed be starting a memorial Group Build, probably this weekend. There will be no theme. Like Russ, there will be almost no rules! If it's in our scale, it's in. The whole point will be to build together and celebrate our fallen brother. Each GB gets a Gallery of completed entries that is pinned, therefore permanent. We can post a list of links to Russ's works in that gallery where it will remain as testimony to his fun and prolific work here on LSP.

I think you just nailed the name of the GB! "A Trip to Russville" is most fitting. More importantly, I know it would really make him smile.

Although the many heartfelt testimonials here indicate clearly that Russ contributed much more than models to our group, a thoughtful browse through of his work might help us to remember him in an appropriate way. Please add to the following list any significant threads that I've missed:

 

F-4S Phantom build

 

Bf 110 G-4 build

 

Lockheed SR-71 build

 

How to Make Your Own Decals

 

... plus three that Russ had just begun when he was cut down:

 

Norwegian F-5A build

 

Norwegian F-16A build

 

Norwegian F-104 build

 

 

Sadly, and with respect,

 

Charles Metz

 

Here's another one that I personally enjoyed a lot.

I haven't been on in a couple of day and saw mention of this from HS.... I'm in total shock... I've bantered back and forth with him, he never failed to cheer and encourage.. I was in total awe of his energy, speed and sheer talent. He was one of a kind and one of the reasons I loved to log on and see what he was up to.. it was always a jaw dropper.

 

I feel like I've lost a best friend.

 

My condolences to his family.

 

Count me in on the group build.

To anyone who followed any of ruzlkampf's posts about the models he has built - he passed away on Wednesday night while at work. He was an awesome guy and it saddens me deeply to see him go. Thankfully he gave me many many things to remember him by... here is a pic of just a few of the models I have of his.

Mia, perhaps you could take some pics of his models you have for us so we can all enjoy his work and perhaps put them in the gallery?. I would really like to see some of his P-38 that you have. I watched his work carefully and although I did not know him, from his posts I think he was a great guy and I'm sure a very good friend to many. A truly sad day for all of us.

Cheers.
