    Anoka County (Minnesota) Museum

    Post  slingshot392 on Sun Jun 06, 2010 4:49 am

    Back in 2007, a friend and I went to an open house they had at the Anoka County Museum which is at the Anoka County Airport here in Minnesota, probably about 15 minutes away. Unfortunately we couldn't make it on Saturday which is the only day they had some World War II planes there flying. I thought they were going to be there both days. I took a bunch of photos, but it wasn't until recently I got around to working on them and putting them on my server. I didn't realize we had so many golden age airplanes right around here.

    Thanks guys! Just found out a little bad news, apparently the northern museum building has been sold, I used to be very good with directions until I moved to the northern suburbs of the Twin Cities, I am constantly turned around appear so I'm not sure which building is the northern one, I looked it up online, but they didn't state which building either other than the northern building. apparently the other building is still open on visiting days, the site didn't say if they would be staying there, I hope they can.

    Louis, you put such incredible detail into such small dioramas. Brian gave me your e-mail and I will e-mail you sometime with a model ship I have wanted to do for probably over 25 years, combination sail and steam, my great uncle served on in Alaska in the mid-20s. Working on a different boat now to learn some of the techniques again of balsa sheets and trying out some different covering materials, should be a relatively quick build as long as I do ones with the engine cover on.
