A new member, CALLSIGN: Shape Charge, has uploaded his first photo to Aeroscale, Revell's classic 1/28 Fokker Dr.I.

Shape Charge built this kit about 15 years ago and I recall he had a time with it. The styrene was queerly oily and soft, and balled up when sanded. It did not want to take enamel paint. In spite of those problems, and despite two or more moves, the Triplane survived the trip from his office to his model room.
