I want to thank you for the wonderful article in the February/March 2016 issue by Tom Biller (Northland Community & Technical College) on “model building.” I also grew up building plastic models of airplanes, cars and motorcycles and then was fortunate to enjoy hundreds of hours assembling model airplanes with my two sons when they were younger. Unlike Tom, however, we still have all the models we put together and they are prominently on display in several cabinets in our home. I believe our interest in model building contributed to our love of aviation and led us to pursue careers in the field. In our downstairs “model building room,” there is an unopened 1/48 scale model of a B-29 Superfortress. I’m thinking it’s time to dust off the old Paasche airbrush.
