    Hi!

    I'm a WWII warbirds fan, specially of German planes. I like to play WWII combat flight simulators like IL-2 Sturmovik and WWIIonline. I have built 6 1/32 german model planes, and I'm working in a Fw190A now.

    Also starting on R/C planes as a hobby, but still in the early stages...

    You've got a great forum here! 8) I found it when I was searching for info. about a game: Storm of war: Battle of Britain.

    welcome aboard buddy. Speaking of remote control planes - the instructor i did a cross country with went to this superman remote control jet expo - pretty weird. I thought it was hilarious these grown men flying little tiny RC jets - specially when you smell the jet exhaust - so strange!

    Hey wayne, just got a question for you? I have allways had trouble painting the cockpit instruments. How did you do your cockpit instrument lines so neatly and stuff?

    Hi from Long Island, NY. The home of WW2 aviation. Grumman, Republic, etc. There are more flying WW2 waebirds around that on a July 4th weekend you don't know which direction to look! I even have some pictures of a P-40 that crashed (not too seriously tho) in a cornfield a few miles from my home. Anyway, I just wanted to say hi before I check out the rest of the site. I'm looking forward to alot of time gathering more info on all the warbirds. Thanks.:D

    Hi Gilbert,

    I'm also a fan of Luftwaffe WWII birds; just love your Fw190 model, and Wayne's too. Wonderful job guys.
    Isn't that Hans-Joachim Marseille on your avatar?
