David Clarke put together this 1/24 Meng Fokker DR1 flown by Ernst Udet.
The camo is the ‘headache’ pattern and is a decal. He used Abt oils for streaking the bottom two wings.
The prop was painted with light sand, Tamiya Nato Black and Red Brown.

Molded in a color best described as a vibrant green, I went with a blue-gray paint scheme for Revell’s HALO Pelican.
This snap-together kit has tiltable wings and rotor, along with a ‘sound and light’ option.

In October 2020 Hub Hobby’s old building on Broad St was demolished. Word of it being torn down spread like wildfire.
One of our customers, Jim Letten, was emailed by his friend Martin about the demolition of their childhood hang-out.
The subject line was: ROSEBUD
“Rosebud” was the dying word spoken by Orsen Welles in the movie Citizen Kane: a reference to his childhood sled – the symbol of memories of youthful innocence.
I’ve known Jim for at least 40 years and he has given us permission to publish his reply to his friends email.
