While perusing Carl Goldberg's article Bring Them Down Safely in Air Age Gas Models, the young modeler who volunteered his Interceptor to demonstrate the dethermalizer, Hershey Goldenberg, was my dad. Although my dad is long gone, seeing him brought a great big smile to my face. Thanks so much for the memories!
