I will now back track & post up the "vacation" .........

First the Midway (CV41) was an awesome afternoon. However I will be going back as I ran out of time to look at everything & read every board ........ 😄

Only a couple of pics on my camera as my daughter was taking them all on here phone, still have to get them off her.

I went looking for a TBM Avenger as I have been interested in all the carrier aircraft of WWII. I am always amazed at the lack of knowledge with the Yanks. A group looking at this aircraft only found out by reading the board that former President George H.W. Bush flew one of these in the Pacific. They were stunned when I told them he was shot down in one over Chichi Jima & was lucky to be rescued by a US submarine before the Japanese could get to him (they were on their way). The rest of any aircrews that had been shot down & captured were later executed & eaten .........

The day after Midway, we went to Legoland in Carlsbad (that is where our hotel was & a great one at that). All the displays are made of Lego & have to be seen to be believed. Admittedly I was there because of the grand-kids, but impressed with the place all the same, although not a patch on Disneyland.

The Star Wars section was amazing ........

if you go to the Smithsonian air and space museum in Chantilly they have the actual movie model of the death star (I think or could be a ship). The makers inserted a few 'novelties' including a small London bus for the keen eyed to spot in the movie.

I think the maker that put the bus in is a Perth bloke. Heard an interview with him on ABC radio a few months back.

I like the Vought F4U Corsair. One cool plane.


I will someday think of something clever to say.

Yep - they had their problems for sure in fact dangerous in the eary days but I would have chanced it. Given them some credit they did improve over time.

Back to the trip ........

Next stop was Disneyland & California Adventure. Disneyland has the back half of the park torn up installing a Star Wars section, so the Steam trains were not running. They had a loco at New Orleans Station (one of the Disney replicas) & another at Main Street Station (one of the cane trains from Louisiana) so I spent a LOT of time looking over the engines & chatting to the engineers & station staff. I got along well as they like chatting to people that know the history of the trains there at the park. I was amazed to discover that a lot of the parts required (couplers for one) are readily available at scrap yards as not many people want them. Hmmm, thinking of a new direction ...... Drool

California adventure was fun as usual, but best of all was Radiator Springs. The detail here must be seen to be believed. Look at these pics close & see some of the stuff that most of the population would miss .......









Of course, Main Street in Disneyland would not be complete without the horses ......





& of course, the Fire Station with Walt's apartment upstairs. The light in the window signified that Walt was in the Park. It has been left on since he passed away.

After returning to Roseville (Sacramento), Mrsozbilt & I rested for about a week before we left on a road trip to Seattle. Actually Mrsozbilt rested looking after the grand kids, I escaped to start the build on the VW ....... Thumbs Up

We drove up there on a Friday & Saturday morning met up with Aussie Steve (Jaberwoki here on MustangTech whenever he visits) & we went to the swap meet.

There was some interesting stuff for sale up there including these beauties .......

Steve's shed. He is a collector of Sidchrome tools & boxes. He is seeking a smaller box with "Sidchrome" embossed in the lid if anyone knows of any .......
