My hubby, George, has been working on several large models with his modelling club for the last few months. The models he has been “repairing” are part of the permanent displays at the Woodring Airport Air Museum.
I’ve watched him take balsa wood and shave it to infinitesimal pieces in an effort to “fix” a certain plane. He’s created windscreens from glue and molded it to fit. He’s taken a single haired brush to paint in details…
His work paid off tonight…and will for the rest of the month.
Tomorrow the Mayor of Enid will officially open the “memorial tribute to Oklahoma Servicemen” and feature models of aircraft, motor vehicles and tanks………there is a wall full of an art project completed by the fourth and fifth grade students of Vance AFB Elementary school that highlight the nose art of WWII aircraft..as well as their own imagination’s nose art for future aircraft.
And my husband’s refurbished models are hanging from the ceiling, inside of display cases and on table tops for the city to see.
I said I would provide pictures….and I went a step further. Instead, I have a short video.
If it is a bit, well…wobbly? It’s because I was having trouble focusing through my tears.
