All kidding aside, I DO thanks the veterans for their service and helping to keep this country free.
Dear Mr Platz: In your honor I am building a 1/350 scale Italian heavy cruiser. That is as big a scale as I'll do (although I do have a 1/192 Sims class DD that I haven't built yet). However- due to the subject matter I have no choice but to drink red Italian wine while building the afore-mentioned cruiser. I do occasionally, however, use my German Riesling in my car's radiator when the temperature goes below 20 degrees Fahrenheit. Thank a bald-headed smart-ass
