You're Welcome...

With my huge thank you sir! Keep well and safe. Happy modelling! ...Am assuming you're going to build an S.75 kit, am starting on my unarmed civil converted Balaton Modell one later this month in early Regia Aeronautica Italia 602° or 610° Squadriglia livery without white I.D. band.

Yep For Sure...

One thing you can credit Trump with is planning, that emanates from his background as a businessman (he has a plan), and add to that an incredible team around him. The thing is, Trump can't allow his medical experts to run the country - with their narrow view - some medical experts even advocating ...

Agree On Beginning Of May...

I don't think anyone has an alternative, they'll have to startup by the beginning of May. I think most people believed an Easter start-up was too early. I look at the daily briefings from the Trump administration, and the lack thereof in Canada. In fact our Prime Minister only announced daily brief...

"Open Where Possible, Close Where Necessary"

Steve Hilton tonight March 29, 2020 on FOX News' The Next Revolution advocates such a targeted approach to get the U.S. economy off idle gear, ex. Tap Plastics in Sacramento where I buy my model display cases only is taking "email appointment" visits (must ask them exactly what that means!), unless ...

Nice Work...

...The coming-up 50 year-old Italaerei kit came out less than two years after I'd quit building models though was one of the earliest ones I'd built after resuming the hobby in earnest c. August 1978. Its a good, solid kit though tad heavy in surface detailing typical of models back then. Like numbe...

Thanks For The Comments!

Wonderfull planes and projects. I didn’t even know about the S.75 existance. Thanks again for the decals ! Your Fiat G12T is a splendid kit !!!!! The FIAT G.12T per CMPR & VITO Charts camouflage & paint research isn't a kosher build, frankly didn't appreciate that till after I'd build the dang thin...

Always Better Late Than Never When It Comes To Research...

A deluge of Color and Camo schemes, thanks for posting that paint chart - btw its still CMPR based, but I like the Modelmaster, GS and Tamiya columns. Stormo was definitely late to posting something substantive in regard to the VITO Charts, but with Stefano's work, in a single bound we caught-up an...

Globalists who believe in a borderless "country" are by definition unpatriotic, but you can't say that - such is the discourse today. Good point, don't know what comes next after Globalization - but one thing is for sure, if Trump survives this election he will lay waste to the left/globalists. …"S...
