    My son's 4-H Display of Scale Models

    Hello

    My son Jacob is a member of the Somerset County NJ 4-H Scale Modelers Clubs and it's time for the 4-H Fair.

    His models are on display with the rest of the clubs models (along with a little flat work of mine).



    He build a scale model of the HMS Hood (a British Destroyer) and a model of the USS Hornet Aircraft Carrier.





    ** Note - I just noticed that the B-25 taking off the Hornet looks like it's headed into the drink . . . DOH!

    I brought him to the monthly meetings and provided encouragement. Unfortunately we are two peas from the same pod - hardheaded and stubborn - so he doesn't like when I help him.

    I made the plexiglass "guards" for the front of the table. In the past people have touched models on display, doing damage.

    Cheers

    nice job.

    btw, I just watched a video someone posted here with a guy cleaning the snake pit.
    Next time throw a few of those snakes on the model table and Im sure noone will touch the models.

    Nice job on the models and the shields. Brings back memories of things I did 50+ years ago. And before you ask, yes--they did have plastic that long ago. I did not chisel them out of stone.

    Great-looking models, but the waves breaking off the bow of the Hornet really make the scene complete. Fine work by both of you. (Him in building the models; you in building the boy.)

    Hi,

    Great display. I appreciate it because I really liked models and I was never any good at making them.

    Enjoy,
    Jim

    That's something I use to like doing as a kid. Developing his talents. Good Job POP'S
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.
