Default Thoughts on Carl

Hard to believe it has been this long. I was going through a binder of decals yesterday and out slipped an 8.5 x 11 sheet of small laser cut self adhesive elipses. I sat for a moment and wondered what these hundreds of elliptical stickers were for. Then it came to me. I used to build the Pershing 1a regularly and the blow out ports on the second stage is pretty noticeable. I asked Carl about cutting some for me and in the next order was this rolled sheet. Carl was one of the most amazing gentlemen. He ran a business with love for the hobby and a complete commitment to supporting his customers in any way possible.

I miss him every time I cut balsa and cardboard and will always be grateful for Carl's help and immense good nature. Thoughts with his family as always.

Sorely missed.
