Old Caboose by master-ninjabear
Old Caboose
Dad and I were driving along Rt. 30, just west of Greensburg PA when he spotted this.
Luckily I always kept a camera in Dad's truck because when I went back with a better camera, this old car had been moved.
Where it came from and where it went, I don't know...just an old ghost from another era.

Banshee's Wail front cover art

US Air DC9 decals by master-ninjabear
US Air DC9 decals
This is the US Air livery from the mid-1980s, made by the now defunct ATP, intended for either the DC-9 or the BAC-111.
I've had them for a long time, long enough to question if they're even still serviceable.
I've been searching the web for another set of/or like these, and have come to the conclusion that I may have the last set in existence so when I get 'round to using them, I may just make a copy instead.
To me this is a piece of local history, but I can't be the only one who appreciates the "three shades of rust" design the airline used to use.
Pink Panther Jet 2 by master-ninjabear
Pink Panther Jet 2
AMT 1/48 scale F9F "Pink Panther" jet.
Testors Panther Pink is a weird and fun color.
Pink Panther Jet by master-ninjabear
Pink Panther Jet
Yup, it's an F9F Panther jet fighter, 1/48 scale, painted with Testors Panther Pink, Model Master paint.
I feel the Playboy Rabbit head is a nice touch, don't you?
I was at my favorite hobby shop when I found a Revell model kit of the Boeing 767.
At the time I was excited about the two decal options provided, but my failing eyesight made the decision moot.
A brilliant surgeon restored my sight over a decade ago, so I went digging though my model kit treasure chest, found the 767...and sighed.
I can do this one as United or American Airlines...but I can't shake the memories of UA Flight 175, or AA Flight 11.
Of course I could punk out and get some after-market decals for some other airline, but that doesn't feel right either.
Then again if I really want to face my demons I could find some blue/gray United decals for my Boeing 757 kit and memorialize Flight 93.
This has been weighing on my mind for a long time now, maybe one of you has an answer to my quandary.

Artist | Hobbyist | Other
United States
Frustrated by pencil, charcoals, ink & paint, I turned first to model building, then to photography, then to my true joy, wooden toys.
Had to give up all of this as I went blind, but modern medicine and a "borg implant" allow me to pursue some of my passions again; though my one true talent is painting pictures with words---the mind's eye is my canvas.

Thank you, I appreciate your support.
Before I start whining poor, poor, pitiful me, I remind myself there are a lot of people far worse off than I.
