Many times photos will inspire me to say to myself, “I’d like to build that”.

Here is a news story about the aircraft.

2012 IPMS Cincinnati show

Well, the show is history.  It was a smaller turnout than usual.  Not sure if that is due to a terrible economy or competition from the iHobby show in Cleveland.  The good news was that it was fun and I hear that the show made money.

OK, now to the 72nd scale models.

Best aircraft was a 72nd scale Ki-67 by Mark Smith.
