Hello friends,

I couldn't resist using Don's little carricature of me as my new avatar. He has my character absolutely spot-on, even down to my rather large ears (all the better to hear you with)! This is all from only one meeting.
Don, you are an observant and tallented guy.

All the best and happy modelling,

Bernie

Back Story

I drew the cartoon of Bernie after Dave Winfield hinted that Bernie should bring a build of Dave's 1/16 scale model of the Centurion tank to the International Paper Modelers' Convention in Sterling, Virginia, USA, and Bernie noted that he was flying in from Scotland so it might be difficult. The cartoon suggested a solution.

I'm honored that you would use my scribbled sketch as your avatar, Bernie.

Don

Great little sketch, Don. I didn't realize your talents are so varied.

Congrats Bernie. Once again another talent from our chief Historian. Good job DB. Looks like you have another career path when the War College gets rid of you.
