Here's a nice letter from our viewers

LB06  Sir, this letter may be of no interest to you, but just in case I thought I would give it a try. The picture, I have attached, was made  around 1937. The boy was 17 years old at that time, and the model was a winner at some contest held in Dallas, TX. The young man was  my brother who died in WW 2 after landing his B-25 on water near the Celebes Islands (Pacific). With this plane, he won a trophy, a model airplane motor, and a trip to Chicago. His life was airplanes. We were raised in Arkansas( Arkadelphia) where he was the first to complete the  civil aeronautical training program offered there. Growing up, I remember the tiny pieces of balsa wood and glue he used to hold the parts  together, first held with very tiny pins until the glue was dry. I ran across your site, because I often go back in my mind to Arkansas and the  sites I can find about "home". Yours made me think of L.B. and his love for models. If you should care to answer this letter, I would be  delighted, and if not I understand that you are very busy person and don't worry about it. My name is Ann Walker and I live in Conroe, TX. I  am 73 years old. My brother's name was L.B. Bardwell, Jr. Had he lived, he would now be 82. Thanks, in any case, for reading this and  letting me bend your ear for a little while.
