We don’t just build them for fun…

Of course we have fun while building model airplanes, but there is more.

There is the reason behind our decision to build a particular airplane model.

The last model I built was a Mosquito Mk VI.

I built it in 2011.

I had bought two similar model kits without any particular reason 5 or 6 years before. Then, in 2010, I got a message from someone who had this document…

Discharge papers page 2

That’s the only thing he had to search for his war hero when he was 18.

If you have read all the posts I wrote about 23 Squadron, then you know I found everything about that pilot.

But there is an other anecdote to this story…

I will tell you next time.
