I'm apparently in the magazine reader gallery
Posted by modelcrazy on Sunday, December 09, 2018 5:31 PM

Well, well, after 4 years of sending in photos of my builds, one of the ones I did over a year ago made it to the mag. I have'nt received the new issue yet but Scottrc sent me a message stating it was in there.

Apperently my 1/72 Hase A6M5 RAF ATAIU-SEA that I built for Bish's RAF GB made it.

Yea me! YesBeerToastBow Down....just kidding Whistling

I'm looking forward to getting it in the mail.

I don't want any congrats please (I patted myself on the back enough), just take a look at it for those who didn't see it in the GB.

No apprently about it. I took one look and thought that looks familiar. The name clinched it. Well done. I did post it in the RAF GB last week.

My grandson broke the gear off it when I showed it to him while I was at home last. It's an easy fix to take care of when I move back. 

Why is it people always go for wheels to see if the turn or propellers if the spin? Confused

Great job Steve and a hardy congrats!Yes BalloonsBeer 

Also check the online galleries to see if they posted any of the pictures you sent. Seems like I had several of my models in there and had no idea they were posted, finding out by accidentally looking at the gallery.

    Congrats Steve, also glad to hear you are doing well, hurry back to your Idaho home good sir.
       I know what you are saying about gear and props, my best friend, a real old geezer LOL, seems to think he's an Indy car driver and has managed to cleve the landing gear off of several of my planes. I love my best friend but I pack my models better when he drives.
    Again AWESOME on being in the mag. Stsy strong and we'll see ya on the forums.

we're modelers it's what we do

I received the magazine yesterday and there it was. They picked a nice picture.

 

And you should have received a nice check too from FSM along with a spare magazine. That $ comes in handy.
