Bought my grandson a Revell 1/48 A-10 Warthog a few months ago to put under the Christmas tree. Dozens of hours on You-Tube, hours and hours of online hobby sites, a Paasche Model H, a few hundred bucks of “gotta have” tools, a spray booth, a $50 copy of Rand McNally Encyclopedia of WW2 aircraft, six new models in the “stash” later I thought I might join the forum to pull my rear end out of the trouble “grandpa” is going to get himself into. I’ve been a fly tier for 25 years so I think I see the hole I’m starting to fall into. I’m a pilot, now plane-less and not current. I have been flying virtual C47’s online with the greatest bunch of retired combat and civilian pilots you will ever meet the past ten years at DC3 Airways. Remember: The only replacement for a DC3 is another DC3! I live and now model in south Florida. Not quit retired, but close. I look forward to making new friends and learning how to be the “best grandpa ever”.
