For modelers of my age and older, Squadron Mail order and the Squadron shops hold a special place in our heart.  The decline that took place over the last ten years was fairly sad.  The good news is that the trademark, trade name and website were purchased out of the bankruptcy and a new group has resurrected the name and website.  It is to soon to know if this will be a success, but I am rooting for them.

The blog has been a little inactive in the last two weeks.  Professional demands have increased and something had to give.  I think I’ve got things back under control and hope to have daily posts from here on out, including some longer form posts and more modeling content.  Stay tuned.
