    Hello everyone,

    I have been modelling for what seems like forever. I am a fanatic about the Pacific War and Naval aviation in particular. The F4U Corsair is my all time favorite aircraft. I built my first model about 40 years ago. I have been active in model clubs and IPMS (which I just rejoined) and have just started my 1/32 scale Tamiya P-51D Mustang which I will hopefully be able to share at some time with all of you. I am always looking for suggestions and constructive criticism.
    I am a manager in the airline industry and have been for about 30 years so I have close ties to the aviation world.
