Model Featured on 3DHawaii.com

http://3dhawaii.com/location/opana-point-radar-station Just received word that my model of the SCR 270B radar is featured on 3DHawaii.com, a website promoting tourism in Hawaii. The SCR 270B was the mobile radar unit that first spotted the hoard of Japanese planes coming to bomb Pearl Harbor. While I am not a radar enthusiast, my old USAF buddy, Chuck Varney, a retired engineer, is, and he challenged me to draw a Sketchup model of the radar, guided me through the technical aspects, to result in a very authentic model.
