Too much to do but I'm going to find time to do it...

I'm having trouble keeping up with my hobby, or at least getting done what I would like to do.  Between selling old hobby stuff (40K) to support FOW, gluing the new items, basing the already painted infantry, reading the new V3 rules, forum distractions, and dreaming about and researching armies I don't have, I'm falling behind schedule.  I did find time to glue a bunch of Soviets since they are my latest distraction, but I really need to get the basing of the 8th Army finished.

I also found time to create a banner for my blog.  I cropped a picture I took until it seemed the right size and made it black and white.  I then added a logo with a font that somehow reminds me of a WWII movie font, but I don't know why.  I believe the original picture is posted previously in this blog.  I'm quite satisfied with it for now.  I had been wondering how to do it and one night during the week just did it.  Feel free, and I mean free,  to use any the pictures I took if you want .  Maybe something will catch your eye.  Just send me a link if you do.  Would be pretty cool.

I recently attended a lecture about WWII German Fighters at the Chino Planes of Fame Museum where I got to meet a a member of the WWPD site.  Very cool.  A FW 190 was featured and here are few pictures and videos I took there...




  1. Great photos! wish i could have been there, did that Focke Wulf take off?
    or was it just taxi-ing?

  2. Thanks. Yes, it did a fly around. I tried to get some pictures of the palne in flight but I was unable to find it while at max zoom. At the air show I had a pole I would reference off of and take pictures in continuous shoot mode. I got lucky with a few of those pictures. The best are posted on this blog in the air show post. March 3rd is on the Doolittle Raid and will feature a B-25 Mitchell.
