  • Metal Scratch Built WWII Aircraft

    I was amazed when I came upon this on the internet.

    Young. C. Park was born in Kona on the island of Hawaii on March 15, 1932 to immigrant parents who came from Korea in 1910.

    He is a retired dentist who turned his skills to making aluminum aircraft models.

    Mustang P-51

    He puts all of us model makers to shame with his skills.


    Cheers,
    Dave

            Talent and no kids.

            I cannot imagine how much time that took.

              I have an article about his Corsair in an old FSM issue. I believe he's currently working on a Spitfire. Amazing.

                What fascinates me most of all is how to make a symmetric wooden master of a fuselage (solid wood). I can take a log or something and carve/polish it until it becomes shaped like a fuselage but the thing is not going to be symmetric. Maybe a lathe spinning the fuselage along its longtitudnal axis could ensure symmetry; I don't know.

                  It took me something like 3 years to master basic airbrushing technniques so I think plastic modeling does require considerable skill too.

                    Damn awesome, but nothing is ever going to top my friend Paul.

                    What is cool, is I got him started on the road that led to this

                    No really, I did get him started. But that was many years earlier than this hehe.

                    (think some links on his site are messed up)
                    Life is change. Built models for decades.
                    Not sure anyone here actually knows the real me.
                    I didn't for a long time either.
