2023 GROUP AMPHIBIOUS SHIPS REUNION - OCTOBER 18-22 - DAYTON, OHIO
TERRIFIC TELFAIR MODEL -- Crew mate Henry Garcia has been working on this from the start of 2020 -- just about complete. He built it from bits and pieces he had. The hull is fiberglass from an RC boat, the rest is wood, polystyrene sheets, mics, Lego pieces and left over parts of plastic models. It’s 144th scale and measures about 39 inches. GREAT JOB, HENRY!
