That's me... Just a gamer trying to keep his "spark" lit and spend some time with good, fun people that matter!

As the Columbus, Ohio Flight Leader I will be trying to create and/or coordinate events in the Central Ohio Area. I hope to run events at most of the major Game stores in Columbus, and to also help see to it that our Squadron hosts some awesome events at Origins 2011, since it takes place in Columbus and I have attended for the last 15 years, and run dozens of different events in that time.

I will also be making a concerted effort with our current Columbus Area members to recruit new members. I would like to see us have one of the larger flights in the Wing. If I have to I will even resort to rolling around town with a Wings of War sandwich board attached to my power wheelchair.

Mostly I am here to have fun, and see to it that my Flight does the same!

Reviresco Sopwith Camel Build Project

This is a summary of my Reviresco Sopwith Camel Build Project from the Hobby Forum:

_________________________________________________________

It is 3:00 AM and I spent most of the day in bed with a sinus infection... I want to start airbrushing my two other builds, but I can't run my really loud compressor without risking waking my 80 yr. old Pop... so I decided to start on the Camel!

1. Clean off any flashing on the model
2. Fill any cavities and rub

And So The Nonsense Begins...

It has been so long since I have published a new Blog entry, I practically forgot how to do it... and yet here we find ourselves at the beginning of something new for me.

AS most of you have noticed by now, a few of us are headed to the Origins Games Fair here in Columbus, Ohio in a couple of days, where we will spend 5 days of Convention Bliss, during which we will run 26 different Wings of War Events, and try to have as much fun as is humanly

I hope to take a few pictures as I go... at least I don't have to worry about cutting

Most Geeks, No Matter What Their Age, Appreciate Geekiness...

by The Cowman on 01-13-2011 at 22:27
I am sitting here, shortly after midnight, waiting for paint to dry. In my hobby room next door, sits my Reviresco Sopwith Tripe... a project that seems to have taken 3 days short of forever to complete. I await a bit of paint to thoroughly dry so that I might apply the last few decals, and then apply one last coat of clearcoat and dullcoat. I am this close (imagine a bandaged thumb and a forefinger held very, very, very close to each other) to finally having it done... but first I must wait...
