A Radio Program for Plastic Model Airplane Builders

Even if my Neenah, Wisconsin-based friend Gerald Voight had not asked me to be a guest on the December 8 airing of The Plastic Scale Modeling Hour, I would want to tell model aviation enthusiasts about it. Gerald, who produces natural metal enamel and acrylic paint that I purchase and like, has helped generously with parts I’ve needed when restoring models in the AeroKnow Museum.

Here are websites you should get to know.




Instead of my transcribing all the info and committing a typo, it’s easier for you to get it right from the producer-host’s sites. Gerald has lined up guests for programs well into January, but he’s always looking for modelers with something to share with others afflicted by the same wonderful hobby. Mention AeroKnow Museum if you e him.

The program is aired live, though he will call me about five minutes before the GO sign so we can plan a general idea for what will follow. I’m sure we will e a few times before showtime to target major waypoints.  The topic for our December 8 program will be the “Spare Parts Stashes” — an essential part of every workshop of every modeler who has been into the hobby for more than a week. We will be talking from his SKYPE line to my land line. I understand sound quality is first class.

Before the big interview I will be taking more recent pictures of AeroKnow Museum, especially my spare parts stash and the Museum all around. Be sure to visit the site — www.aeroknow.com — starting TODAY if you’ve not visited before and starting November 19 if you have.

It’s a good bet all programs will be archived, and I intend to listen to, and enjoy every one. I cordially invite YOU to do likewise.

Sustain the dream.
