Entertrainment Junction

If you are up in the Cincinnati Ohio area, be sure that you stop by Entertrainment Junction!  Even if your not that much "into" trains, I guarantee you will fully enjoy the visit.  EJ holds a HUGE into model railroad, all in G scale!  And this isn't toys going around in circles...we are talking about a walk through time with some outstanding examples of fine craftsmanship, scenery, detailing, sounds, lights, and all sorts of stuff.  We went expecting to stay for about 2 hours...5 hours later we finally pulled ourselves out!

Check out this You Tube video!

Totally worth it!

New Project-- Hasegawa 1/48 TA-4J

I thought Id post up some pictures of progress on my latest project.  I was pleased to recieve from IPMS USA several Eduard PE sets to review including the flap set, exterior, and interior.  Ive also picked up Afterburner Decals "scooter bandits", and tossed in some True Details resin seats.  Here are some pics of the progress.  With the Eduard goodies, I couldn't add a little more detail, especally to the landing gear!  Enjoy!
