    Hello people. My name is John and I'm from Dallas,Texas. I am reviving my old scale modelling hobby after about 20 years, and I am a fan of WWII history. Really nice models here and I hope to learn a lot from folks here!

    Yo TJ welcome to the site I dont post many pictures of my model aircraft as I may show some of the other guys my superior skills/secrets.
    I specialize in aircraft crashes at least thats what they look like when I've finished them. Last one I nearly completed I managed to invent a frosted canopy for a FW190, very handy if you are shy when going in to attack or you happen to be a naturist pilot (any Ideas how to get a glue print out John)
    Fortunately there are some guys on here who produce some fantastic models as well as loads of pictures of the real McCoy which I'm sure must be helpful with detailing.

    Texasjohn - serious question. You guys do have schools here in Texas, right?

    I just got off the phone with the power company to close my residential electricity service. By the way - the power industry in good old Texas is a racket of power companies all charging outrageous prices... free market my anus, I'm paying double here per Kwh than in Florida.

    The "customer service rep" I spoke to mistyped my name in the confimation email, misspelled Corpus Christi (as Christy), thought August was the tenth month of the year, put it at the 22 of the month even though I said the 6th, thought Pensacola was spelled (pensicola)... good grief...

    I'm going to be leaving skid marks from Corpus all the way back to Pensacola.
