Howdy! Looks like you have used 2.9 GB of your 3.0 GB upload limit (96%).

Will there be a My Forgotten Hobby II?

Looks like it doesn’t it?

This is what’s in the box.

I was a bit afraid to open it yesterday…LMF?

Lack of moral fiber?

I did not know what LMF was when I was a 10 year-old back in 1958 looking at model airplanes in the window display of a men’s store. 

50 years later I know how these brave men must have felt aboard a Boulton Paul Defiant Mk.I. I know also that the Mk.II had some little problems to be ironed out. I read it in the Operations Record Book of RAF 264 Squadron.

I learn a lot reading those. Like what these unsung heroes did, seen here in Gerard Pelletier’s album.

You will understand why I won’t be building model kits for a little while yet even though the temptation is there to start building.
