I have a Rodent Gotha(night camo), a Spin Ansaldo SPA 5, a Rodent 
Strutter in French markings, a Breguet in Soviet stars, a WnW Pup, the 
famous, if you recall, Merlin AEG G.IV and a scratchbuilt Paul Schmitt 
PS.7.  Most nearly finished and all started so long ago I have forgotten 
why they stalled.

Great time for a Cook Up, Cameras are much better and there is more 
bandwith available. It looks like many of us will have some spare time 
on our hands. I kinda used to look forward to getting sick as a kid. If 
it was bad enough to stay home from school, Mom would buy me a kit to 
keep me occupied and out from under foot. BvB mentioned I had cleaned up 
the bench just in time and I should practice my social distancing from 
the modeling bench, she's practicing her's from the recliner watching 
old TV reruns.
