  1. Wow! No mistaking who that is! Great work and thanks for letting us have a look!
  2. Ok, this is going to be very interesting! Looking forward to it.
  3. Starting my own battleship row!
  4. With the lockdown ongoing I decided to finally put together this kit I bought at a flea market a couple years ago. It's an old Lindberg motorized destroyer kit. It was loose in the box, but 95% of the parts were there. Some of the motorized parts were missing, so this one is dead in the water I'm afraid. It was still fun to do and went together fast. There isn't highly detailed and not a ton of pieces to put together, so I put a little extra effort in the paint job. Hopefully this lockdown doesn't' continue to much longer, but if so, I have some more kits to keep me busy. Stay safe ever
  5. Absolutely amazing! Makes me want to build some jeeps. I've dug out a couple of kits to keep me occupied. Don't have any jeeps though. Great work and thanks for sharing!
  6. Wow. That is amazing! Extremely good work!
  7. Second time in two days Ive seen one of these. Never knew they existed before. Would love to have one. What are they valued at?
  8. Nice! I have the exact same mannequin!
  9. You can always list them on here. Whatever doesn't sell put on your local Craigslist.
  10. At the point I’m at now he is sweating out wether he’ll be shipped to the pacific or not. Doesn’t have enough points.
  11. That’s what I’m guessing. Plus in that era, African American births probably weren’t well documented. Lots of mentions of Patton in his diary as he was attached to the 3rd Army. Plus mentions the death of FDR, Ernie Pyle, Mussolini, Hitler and VE Day. Still reading.
  12. Glad it worked out. Keep 'em flying!
  13. I recently acquired a journal belonging to Ernest W. Kasser, ASN 13179292. According to the army enlistment records he was 11yrs old upon enlistment...born in 1931. I know he was an African American soldier assigned to HQ Co. 24th Reg. STA of the Signal Corp section. I haven't been able to find much else. Not even on the "Find a Grave" website. Any help would be appreciated. Enlistment records has him at 11yrs old at time of enlistment. Can't be right though....right? Also, know that he was from Philadelphia.
