« Part 1: Just trying to make it easier for someone to find the high points of my blog. Part 2 of Blog Post Index series no next part

New index page.
I’ve seen the need to build a new index as I’ve added quite a few new projects so hope this is helpful.

Start here with a step by step of how a scratch build model is made.
Many of these links cover more than one page so be sure to hit the next link to check out the next page in the blog.

There is a hundred ways to do any thing but this is what I used at the time with what tools and knowledge I had at the time.
Be sure if you don’t feel right doing something to back off and learn more or find another way to get the job done, better safe than sorry.
