About my blog

Model building has been my hobby for the past 50+ years and I am an avid reader of military history.  My interests are of World War II, Korean War, Indochina, Vietnam, Middle East Wars, Desert Storm and Iraqi Freedom.   I like to build armor, aircraft (mostly early jets today)  and some Sci-fiction/space subjects in most scales but today I tend to build 1/48 scale most often.   This blog is a collection of my research notes.

I do have a full time job and have been working with computers for the pass 35+ years.   Setting up and maintaining this blog comes easy for me.    From my experiences, I say “the internet is not forever” where websites are either restructured, have missing files or just disappear completely.    It also applies to this blog.   At this time, I am the sole person posting to this blog.   I do not know how long I will be doing it or if someone will take over in the future.


My Beginnings:

Since February 2011, I have been “hanging out” on the Track48 forum.    Over the years, I posted a number of articles and conversed with many great guys around the world.    In April 2018, the forum changed their host service.    All my earlier posts are still there but some of the formatting was lost during the migration and some of my earliest posts have some missing images.    I still have all the info/materials for me earlier posts and over time I will rework some of them to post on this blog.   Creating this blog is my way of “going public” plus I have better control over my posts.   I still “hang out” on the Track48 forum as it is like my local bar (pub).
