I think it is time we all started getting excited about this year's event.
I posted some notes over on the official event thread here:
I'll start a T-shirt list there.
Please check in on that thread so you can get the latest info on the upcoming event.
I hope you all can make it.

This link is super AMAZING !!!

The plastic scale modeler crowd is FANATICAL in detail. I should know, I used to be one. Between the Squadron Signal Pubs, and any other books you can find, specific details not only add to the accuracy of the model, but give it significant context in the overall scheme of things, in this case, the PTO during WWII.

I watched MANY Flory Models live streams over the past year on YouTube, and I can tell you, the plastic scale crowd takes this stuff seriously

Very nice tribute indeed and I can't wait to see the finished model flying gracefully in J's honor over one of his favorite events...!

I've read through HALF of the link....SUPER informative

Just read the level of detail in the paint/markings/repairs done to the Vindicators. I mean, where else do you get this level of fidelity and research?

I love stuff like this....just love it !

Yeah talk about detail, WOW here are two lines I cut and pasted from the link that kind of say it all how they look at detail.

"The fuselage shows various tones, lighter in some areas and darker in others. This is the Light Gray showing through where the Blue Gray has faded or been rubbed off on the areas where the crew would enter and leave the aircraft. Likely there is a healthy layer of dust present as well".

thanks for the link Wade were really looking forward to it. Bentley has been talking about it since last year hahahaha

sorry for the lack of updates guys. the last week has been super busy (vacation ect) but im hoping to get going asap. though this weekend is a wash because i'll be at a event for 2 days and I'll be working in san diego for the next month or so but will be home on weekends. thankfully scott did all the hard work so now i get to come in and finish up with the fun stuff. come hell or high water this model will be done for st george though.

Hi all, sorry if I missed this, but is there a flyer with the event info (dates,location,etc) that I can review? I checked the thread but perhaps I missed it.
