the Modeling Miscreant
Who is A.L. Lehron ?
First of all, for all those (expletive) people who haven't figured it out... its A.L. Lehron, get it? Ail-er-on...say it with me...aileron. That's good, now shut off your Hooked on Phonics CD and pay attention. It's French, something 'ole A.L. (Abraham Lincoln) doesn't like to mention, particularly because I don't really like too many Frenchman. Not that there's anything wrong with France itself, I mean after all, the Germans invaded it, so how bad can it be? French wine is good, French women (well, most of 'em) are better, and the Maginot Line is a marvel of engineering (cough, hack, wheeze). I do like a few Frenchmen, especially the ones who are grateful to the US and England that they're not speaking German. The rest of you...well, go listen to Maurice Chevalier records and leave me alone.
People often ask me why I'm so angry all the time...why I'm so critical of my fellow modeler...well, it's because you irritate me. No really...ever get stuck on a road behind a little old lady doing 30 mph? That's my take on most of you. The ones who don't irritate me, well, those are my friends, at least until they irritate me. Then they get lumped into the pile of unwashed modeling masses with everyone else.
I grew up as the son a military man, so I learned early on that there's no time for "lolly-gagging' around. Say what you mean, mean what you say, otherwise, shut up and sit down.
Needless to say, my attitude as a child was not much better than it is right now, at least now, I have the common sense to shut my mouth when I have to...well, ok, some of the time.
I built models to escape from the tedium of everyday life. My parents, Mr. and Mrs. Lehron, agreed that it was safer to keep me in the basement with a tube of Testor's glue than it was to turn me loose in public. This of course would come back to haunt them later on in life.
After college, I had a promising career as an actor, appearing in several well-known movies opposite some of the world's most accomplished actors.
My two most notable films were 'Monty Python's Search for the Holy Grail", where I played a leading role as Dead Man #4 in the "bring out your dead" scene, and as an attacking knight in the final scene of the movie. Here's a couple of highlight shots, you can clearly see my right leg in photo 1., and the side of my head in image 2.
