Off the Drawing Board Comments

Crazed Plastic (CP) published several articles by an author named “Fatz”. These articles were on projected Lockheed aircraft that didn’t make the cut. Fatz was a former Lockheed employee who did similar articles for other International Plastic Model Society (IPMS) publications such as “Flying Tiger” and “Dirty Plastic”. Here are the articles published in CP.
