Boys and their toys

My Dad used to take me to the Sepulveda Dam recreation area to see the radio-controlled planes that flew out of the field, tucked into a corner of the gigantic flood-control basin. I especially thrilled to the sight and sound of the scale warbirds that would engage in brief mock dogfights.

But they were bush league compared to this kind of spectacle.


And when it comes to gigantic scale models, nobody can hold a candle to these Belgians, whose pride and joy has a wingspan nearly thirty feet wide, weighing almost 500 pounds.

Did I say, "Wow!"?
