  1. I’m sorry for your loss. They truly are man’s best friend.
  2. Yeah. Pretty darn impressive. I gotta get one of those things.
  3. That is so cool. I really want to get a laser cutter of my own...and learn how to use it.
  4. Yes. Engine bearers, too. I didn’t know you found the instructions, so one step of those are in the package also. I’m really looking forward to how this turns out. I had considered getting a laser cutter of my own, so this will be a good demo of its capabilities. Parts with complex shapes can be built up of flat parts, so lots of possibilities.
  5. I have that kit. I can measure the part, but I think it would be better to send it to someone who can copy it. A tiny mistake or omission on my part could result in a part that doesn’t fit. Let me know.
  6. Oh I would love to have it hanging from my ceiling. I just can’t justify $2k+ shipping for it.
  7. It didn’t sell. He relisted it. I have trouble wrapping my head around the eBay listings with bidding and make offer options. His starting price is US $20. I offered $250. He countered with $2,000. So, if you want that in your man cave...
  8. Love that King Tiger! Is it the Takom kit with that tank on the box? Great box art for that one.
  9. Fine Scale Modeler has a few pics of Lewis Pruneau’s 1/32 B-52 in the May 1991 issue. It was only a few pictures of the finished model, though. I wouldn’t rule out getting one of these for me, but mine would also be a ceiling hanger with an X-15.
  10. Nice work. Go to a show sometime. I think you would find that your work can be a contender.
  11. Do we LSPers get to bid on it? Why not ebay, which would give you a worldwide audience? Either way, I’ll offer US $250.
  12. I carried a tackle box full of tools and supplies on 3 deployments in the Army. It worked out great, but I would guess your travel situation is a lot different. (Two of the deployments were to foreign countries with no access to hobby shops) I used a Plano 6-tray box. Plenty of small compartments for small tools and supplies. The top trays have long compartments ideal for paint brushes and X-Acto knives, etc. The bottom could hold a 1/48 single engine fighter or 1/24 car plus a few other things like Evergreen strip stock and a few items too big for the folding trays. Not sure how well it would work for a 1/32 aircraft. If the kit can be carried separately, a big tackle box is ideal. That Plano with 3 fold out trays per side is as big as it gets for current production boxes, AFAIK. If you really like the idea of a tackle box and want to just go nuts, look for an old “Possum Belly” box made by Umco. Long out of production, but they can still be found. They had 4 fold out trays per side, a deep compartment at the bottom, and a detachable foam lined ice chest below that. Probably impractical, and there’s always the chance it could come with that weird used tackle box smell.
