Intermission – Little did I know back then…

Little did I know back then…

The year is 1959 or 1960. I was playing in the alley behind the apartment building where I was living on Davidson Street in Montreal. There were some Popular Science magazines in the garbage. I picked them up and looked into them.

The January 1944 issue was like having an epiphany…

It was my first encounter with the P-47 Thunderbolt, and there were lots more fighter planes I had never heard about except the Spitfire. In 1958 I was 10 years-old. So what does a 10 year-old kid do?

Cut the pages up?

Fast forward 60 years later…

Now I have all the reasons in the world to start building it in 2019.
