Welcome to 72nd Aircraft!

I'm trying something here...
I'm attempting to give the 72nd scale aircraft modeler a place to get together where the bigger scale modelers will not say, "It's 72nd scale...Who cares?".

This board is a trial to see if there is interest in such a place. Rumor has it that there isn't. I don't believe it.

So... Let's just see.

Getting ready to build a certain kit or aircraft? Gathering information so as to avoid "oopsies"? Mention what you're doing, and information you perhaps didn't realize you needed can be supplied here.

It would be helpful for now if posters could mention "Criticism Welcomed" with their posted models so we can be sure. I'd like to make everybody comfortable with this, so try to keep criticism constructive, please.

Time to review the year's accomplishments. I'm tempted to disqualify Les... He's made more models this year than I have in the last ten. Ah, well... That's okay.
Post them if you completed them in 2011! (Les, too.)
