I just discovered a great source of 1/72 and 1/48 scale ballon tires the
other week in my local Home Despot superstore. O rings used in faucets in
the Bathroom Plumbing section. They come in a variety of sizes and are
cheap at ~ 15 cents each (whatever happened to the 'cent' key?). These
seem like they would be good for cockpit coamings also.

I am finishing up an Eduard Siemens Schuckert D III and a Sierra Scale
Gotha WD 7. What is everyone else working on right now?
