Just got word that long time scale modeler and event promoter Frank Tiano passed away Monday night. Frank single-handedly help Scale R/C to grow and thrive through the years by promoting it not only with his Top Gun event and writing scale columns for several magazines, but in many ways a lot of people never saw. For example, Frank was always more than helpful if you were putting on an event with 10 people or 100 by offering up some of his Zap product he sold as gifts. Heck, he even help sponsored the Model of the Month here on RCSB! Also, he was always helpful if you needed something at one of his events. Frank was always promoting the hobby and I just don't know to many others out there that did as much of that.
I have no information about the funeral yet but will post as soon as I find out.
As a tribute to Frank. If you have any pictures with him in it please by all means post them in this tribute thread.
Blue skies and fair winds Frank.
