Flyfisher48's recent activity

  • Photo of Black Seabass caught off the coast of Ocean City Maryland on a headboat on clam bait.  This is a nice 2 pounder that put up a good fight and wound up in the frying pan the next day.  Though not a real big fish it is a nice fish with the hump on its back.  Black Seabass are very good eating.

    Photo of 1960's Chevrolet Corvair in Washington DC that has been fully restored.

  • Submitted a challenge entry Mig 15 Maintenance
    Photo of 1/48 scale mode of a Mig 15 jet fighter with engine visible.  The Mig 15 was used by North Korea against the F86 Sabre jet flown by USA airmen during the Korean War 1950-1953.  Both fighters are considered as equals though it could be better pilot training of USA airmen that defeated the Mig 15.  Debates on altitude, turning radius, gun accuracy, mach stability continue to this day.  I built this from a Tamiya kit.
