Canadian collection

For several years I've had an awesome time building models for my friend Reg Clarke. Both of us are Canadian Air Force types, just separated by a few decades. The neat thing is the aircraft types he has personal experience with, from the 50's to the 70's. My experiences only started in 1977, the year I moved to the training base at Moose Jaw, Sask at age 7. THAT's when I decided I wanted to work on planes! I musta spent more time lookin up than lookin where I was goin!

Most models are the standard fare, typical of what was seen on the flightlines of the old days. Reg has a special place for the Search and Rescue branch, but his real passion is the Lockheed Neptune. Funny thing, I got to work on the real thing at the museum in Greenwood, Nova Scotia! 

Hope you enjoy looking at these pics. I enjoyed building them- for the most part. That DHC-3 Otter on floats really tested my tolerance.
