Response to Michael ... While I agree Harry Woodman stands as an icon ...

… that illustrated its possibilities for aircraft modeling to a wide audience. That was the first time I, and probably many others who were not model railroaders, had ever heard of it.

And while we're on the subject of photoetch, we need to remember the late Fred Hultberg, whose Fotocut company was one of the early pioneers of that process for scale aircraft modelers. In fact, it was Fred who produced Harry's photoetch parts for sale in the US.

And I would also be remiss if I didn't mention Paul Budzik's video tutorials as present-day inspirations! You can't hide behind that "Anonymous" sign-in, Paul! happy.gif
