Barn Find P-38

Today I made a sweet barn find.

Myself a 3 friends were tasked with dealing with a good friend's stash who recently passed away. While sorting and moving things I discovered this gem. I instantly recognized it.

I should have taken a pic before I blew some of the dust off.

Built by Sam Garcia for the September 2000 issue of Aviation in Miniature magazine. I'm not sure how my friend (Jon Baker) come to have it in his possession. Jon, Sam Garcia, myself and several others were deeply involved in the magazine along with the founder Alan Del Paggio. Jon and I were both contributing editors.

So, the plan is to rehabilitate it and get it ready for the next 19 years.

A bittersweet day. I had no idea how much stuff him and I swapped around, horse traded, collaborated on and even did together.  Sure going to miss him.
