    Greetings, salutations and heyhawaya!

    My name's Eric. I've been... oh, lifelong airplane nut and history nut. (Well, after the very young dinosaur stage passed - which, I suppose, is technically history as well. So likely at least 30 years.) Ran across the forum while doing a bit of a search for interesting IL-2 markings, decided to register and see what's up.

    Been modeling about as long, it seems, from "helping" my dad out on his projects (sailing ships - too much rigging for me!) to my own interests - almost entirely aircraft. Topic-era specific, I tend to be rather a fan of a few aircraft - P-36/Hawk 75s, the P-47, SBD, F6F, FW-190, HE-162 (just something about it...) though if it has wings, I'll give it a look.

    Not a vet (being deaf in one ear they seem to have thought was a problem,) always regretted that. About the closest I came was time in the civil air patrol waaay back in school - though being *that* close to a Harrier taking off and an A-10 making passes on the field, well - good memories.

    In any case, glad to be here, hope I can contribute some!
