  1. Write-Up from Alligator Lines in Mike Fiferís Newsletter!

    Iím not sure how many of you are aware of it but Fiferís Hobby has recently started distributing a newsletter1 If I am counting correctly the current issue is the second one!

    Introductory note: This blog entry first appeared as a blog entry on the old site shortly before the move. With the move to the new site, the previous blog entries will remain where they are until such time as they get moved over.
