As sit here late at night not being able to sleep well. It came to me the my good buddy pasted away on Valentines day 1983. Dave was my buddy. Our family use to get together for dinner. He was one of the Premier model builder in 60's, 70's and early 80's. A lot of his aircraft where in the old Scale Modeler Magazines. This clean sweep at the IPMS Reg 4 regional.
Miss you Boh. Hard to believe its been 33 years since I seen that great smile.
Some quotes about Dave.
One last thought. Anyone who attended the 1977 IPMS nationals in San
Francisco would have no trouble explaining why that was the best convention ever,especially
the banquet. This area has also been the home to some of the finest modelers in the world including the late, very lamented George Lee and Dave Boksanski.
David "Boh" Boksanski.
Anyone remember this incredibly talented, cigar-chomping character? Heard this story, which might, in fact
A modeler wsa bragging about his output to am IPMS chapter in California. Fellow IPMS'ers "Boh" Boksanski
and (the late) Mike Dario then built AN ENTIRE CARRIER AIR GROUP by the next month's meeting to show the first what output REALLY meant! Don't know whether THAT was true.... but I personally know
Boh constructed 14 Revell 1/48 109G-10 in little over two week's time.
Anyone have similar "Boh" anecdotes?

Yes Boh, Mike and another individual did indeed build an entire CAG. Whats more they did it over one weekend,
cleaned out all the decals in the Northern CA to do it.
Boh also took second at the St Louis IMPS Nats ( one before the last) with a Combat F-101. Couldn't
figure out how he did it, (make the Combat kit look so good). Before he died Mike Dario told me that the rear end
came from a Revell 1/32 F-4. Creative Modeling.
