We are settling in to the new house finally. Have no idea when I'll get back
to modelling, hopefully not to long. One of the unpackers was gaga over the
model boxes, seems he built models as a kid and was looking forward to doing
some with his kid. Liked the old Revell and Monogram ships. Small world.
We are not very far from the Armor School at Fort Know. We can actually hear
the booming on the fireing range. More like distant thunder and it took me a
couple of times to figure it out. Gotta get to the Patton Museum ASAP.
And for you flyboys, I've seen the ANG C-130s taking off from the Lousiville
airport, office is just across the highway from there and we were flown over
at the house by what I think was an F-18.
And dig this on the road in is an American Legion post with a Patton parked
out front an M47 I think, gotta get the books out and check. You can
actually walk right next to it for research purposes, though there is a big
"No climbing on tank" sign there, too. May have to dig out the Italeri M47
and have a go with the real thing sitting down the street.
