Apologies to the readers for a lack of direct modeling content since the beginning of the new year.  My plan was to dedicate 2019 to having more direct modeling content and photos.  However, my job is such that the first 10 days of the new year are always a busy time.  That has led to more “link farming” than I had intended.  Please stay with me.  I promise that more substantive content is on its way.

While you wait for me to get my act together, go visit Jeff Groves’ blog.  Lots of great content there.

It is amazing what you come across on the internet

You can get lost on the internet forever if you are not careful.  While looking for something completely different, I ran across this site on Australian aviation.  I was particularly interested in this page.  Be careful. Don’t get lost.

Modeling maniac Jeff Groves has started his HAD scheme batch build.  I have been waiting for this ever sense he started posting his research on his new blog.  Follow along kiddos, this is gonna get good.

Happy 2019

2019 is here.  As far as the blog goes, 2018 was a good year. After viewership trending downward for 5 years, the number of page views went up substantially in 2018.  No where near the high reached in 2012, but a start on the road back. (BTW, I’ve been blogging since mid-2008, so I am going on over 10 years of this.)  I am hoping with the inspiration of friends like Jeff Groves and Jim Bates that 2019 will be a banner year both in modeling and blogging.  Come back often.

I’ve never heard of this company before.  If anyone has used these things I’d love to know what you think.

If you haven’t been reading Jeff “Inch High” Groves blog, you are missing some of the best stuff on the internet.  Jeff’s blog is what I want this blog to be when it grows up.

Author Chris Bucholtz has an occasional blog with some really good WWII stories, as well as the occasional modeling entry. (who am I to cast such shade?).  I recommend you take a look.
