Skip continues to take the Valom BT-1 and turn it into a masterpiece.  It has been primed.

My friend Scott King is working on the 72nd scale Valom kit of the BT-1.

Here are two in-progress photos he sent me.

My personal modeling sherpa

My local club, MMCL, is blessed with a number of fantastic modelers.  These guys are some of the best modelers I know.

My personal modeling sherpa is Scott “Skippy” King.  Skip has the traits all good modelers I know have.  Skip doesn’t think that his models are that special.  He is willing to share freely of his modeling techniques.  I have learned more than I could ever say from Skippy.

Below is one of his works in progress.  It is a 72nd scale Hasegawa Buffalo.  He has converted it to a Dutch aircraft.  I love what he has done with the engine.  The photograph below doesn’t do the actual model justice.  One day I hope to do a radial engine half as well.
