  1. I don't have the Gemini, but have the Horizon Mercury capsules and launchers. They do an Atlas and a Redstone, plus the military and several early satellite versions in injection molded plastic with good detail. I wish they would release a Titan booster in injection, but Real Space Models and even Anigrand sell resin ones. You can find quite a few X-20 kits out there, but I like the 3D printed one I found on ebay from a guy in the UK. I'd like to put that one on a Titan booster or several versions of one. It didn't fly, but I sure fantasized about that as a kid and even carved a wo
  2. and hopefully tigers and angels... (although my stash has too many already, but wait... can there be too many tigers and angels?) Tnarg
  3. Hoping to see that crocodile and dragon decorated aircraft. A Lithuanian one could be interesting too.... but that white cross insignia would be simple and not require a decal. Thanks for keeping some interesting aircraft coming. Tnarg
  4. I will miss his perspective on life. He always had a drive to try something new and didn't let "life" stop him. Hoping you find joy in the next life Dale. Tnarg
  5. It seems that if they included a few extra parts like the exhaust and the coolers you might be able to build the cowling closed up and still have the engine on display separately. That would be really nice if possible, but they would need to get the extra parts on the sprues. Tnarg
  6. You modified a 50's concept into something which fits right in to the reality of spaceflight as of a few decades ago. I greatly admire your creative energy. Just amazing. Tnarg
  7. Model construction isn't completely dead in the aftermath of video games, but it sure is a lot less widespread than back in the day. My younger grandson and I put together the Gojira monster kit that was 16 inches tall, with destruction in the diorama and he was thrilled with that. My older grandson really struggled with some of the Revell kits of Ed "Big Daddy" Roth's cars. Too many fiddly bits in the suspension and details that were equally difficult for us to build back in the day. I guess we didn't mind the glue stains and limited paint, did we? Decals? Don't need no stinkin' d
  8. There are a lot of wonderful books on Austro-Hungarian aircraft. Peter Grosz wrote the big one: "Austro-Hungarian Army Aircraft of World War One" and Dr. Martin O'Connor wrote "Air Aces of the Austro-Hungarian Empire 1914-1918". Both of these men are no longer with us, and we don't get to read Peter Grosz' second volume on the Naval Aircraft. Other good books are in German. Keimel's "Osterreich's Luftfahrzeuge", Peter Schupita's "Die k.u.k. Seeflieger" and three authors did a good book with profiles " Die Flugzeuge der k.u.k. Luftfahrtruppe und Seeflieger 1914-1918". A more recent
  9. 1/32 scale no less. At 160 km or about 99 miles in diameter, full scale, we only need a space about 5 km in diameter to display it. Shipping may be a bit difficult. Tnarg
  10. When my son asked what sort of car I was interested in buying, I told him that it had to (reliably) run and the radio had to work (for the one classical station with a weak signal that is the only one I ever tune it to). If it doesn't have under-water (submarine) or exo-atmospheric capability with an infinite free energy power source, why bother? Oh, and I'd like the paint done in Swedish Splinter (meadow) camouflage if I had all my wishes. He has a '57 Chevy (four door) under restoration and I drive my wife's old Saturn Aura... which needs new paint, but doesn't really justify Spl
  11. Good luck, especially with that FTL transfer from Pern. Maybe you could share a ride with the rest of us sometime? or at least give us instructions for a homebuilt version... Love the location. Hope it all works out well. Tnarg
  12. Hoping we can see those interesting volunteer schemes from Swedish pilots in Finland. Tnarg
  13. Hope you feel better. Keep going, we are pulling for you. Tnarg
  14. The kits mentioned are usually made in 1/72 first, but he seems to be including the 1/48 scale with the releases now and maybe even going as far as 1/32 with some persuasion. Congratulations to him and to those of you who love those planes. I have his 1/72 HP 42 (Western) and it takes a bit of work to smooth out the printing resolution lines, but we knew that when we realized it was an ABS 3D printed model aircraft. Arctic Decals sells an amazing exterior and interior decal set with the wood paneled interior and two alternatives for the Jacobean fabric pattern for the seats. Those
  15. I believe the SBC-4 version is one of the Combat Models vac kits, but it would be so much more amazing in resin or dare we suggest, injection? The commander's plane from Enterprise with the large blue stripes and blue triangle on top wing plus the yellow wings make a spectacular subject. Thanks for some other amazing photos. This plane really catches your eye. Tnarg
