Skippy’s finishing of this kit triggers the beginning of the great SB2U one year build off.  More on this later.

The show is over.  It was great.  In the next few days I’ll try and post a summary, but for now, a few more photos.

Me-110 nightfighter

 This was the much modified Italeri kit.  A very nice job in 72nd scale.

72nd zero

There were a number of different 72nd zeros.

109 dio

There were quite a number of really nice aircraft dios this year.

Happy hour

The coonvention hotel we were in had a free happy hour each night.  Great for getting together with other modelers.

Here are more 72nd scale aircraft from Indy.  These were in the OOB category and there seemed to be a problem with judging as this category appears to have been skipped.

Me-109E by Don Flynn

Don’s Me-109E.  I think it is the Tamiya kit.

Special Hobby Koolhaven FK-51

A nice biplane in Spanish civil war markings.

LaGG-3

A rarely seen LaGG-3.

Fine Molds 109

Another Me-109 by Don Flynn.  A Fine Molds F, I think.

Fine Molds Me-109G

Don Flynn’s Me-109G in very interesting markings.

Larger 72nd aircraft to come.

101st post

This is my 101st post since moving my blog to WordPress last June.  I haven’t posted as often as I’ve wanted, but I am not unpleased with my effors so far.

In any event, the photo below is one of my older models from a few years ago.  I took the picture and sent it to my friend and fellow club member Randy Fuller, who cleaned it up and edited it and sent it back.  The resulting photo looks much better then the actual model. 

This has raised a question in my mind.  How much can you edit a picture of a model before it is dishonest to put the photograph out in public as being representitive of the actual model.  Should you fix flaws on your model with photo-editing software and publish the photos, even on the internet, without disclosing what you have done?  To me, this is an interesting question.  I’ve come up with some preliminary answers, but until I’ve hashed all this out in my mind, I’ll reserve expressing my opinion for a subsequent post.
