Thanks Joel - Noreastcon was a nice event made all the better for finally meeting up with you . I have to chuckle because I entered 4 models and came home with one trophy ( which I am delighted with ! ) - while my brother in law also entered
4 models and he came home with six trophies !

As we have discussed before , single engine 1/48 aircraft has to be the toughest categories and I think your work was right up there with the best.

Betcha you're going to tear into the P 4 Ferrari next - yes ??

I'll be watching your T Bird build here and Be looking in on the auto site as well .
Cheers - Richard

Hi Richard, Iíve been following along quietly. Very nice job on some very interesting subjects (that Iím not very familiar with).
I hear you re your mojo, hope you have a nice break and itís not too long before youíre sharing again.
Regarding the decals vs masks, my pedantic nature prefers masks when possible and with Mal taking a step back Iíve acquired some Montex masks for a future build, it will be interesting to see how they compare with what Iíve done in the past. Having said that, most of my builds have utilized decals.
Anyway, thanks for sharing.
Regards.
