Tribute to a friend

Recommended Posts

Four years ago our local club lost Jim Thomas, a great modeller and a good friend, to a brain tumor. He was a talented builder who would always share his techniques and encourage you in whatever you were building. His main interest were military subjects, however he built a wide variety of other subjects too.

There were several un-finished projects on his bench, two of which I was given to complete, a P-47 and this Cobra. This Monogram Cobra needed only final assembly. Jim had all the painting and detailing done, all that was left was to join the main components. I would like to share his work with you.

What a beautiful build up, and a touching tribute to a good friend.  I lost my sister 8 months ago to cancer, I feel for your loss as well.  Thank you for sharing his work!
