    Several good covers of older tunes out there. Five Finger Death Punch's remake of Bad Company's, Bad Company song. Slight tweak to lyrics to modernize it. My favorite is Charm City Devil's hard rock version of the hard Blue Grass tune, Man of Constant Sorrow. There is also a great hard rock version of Careless Whisper that George Michael made famous with Wham. Can't remember the group who did it unfortunately. Remakes of cover tunes is great, so long as they are just as good if not better than the original. Disturb's version of Sound of Silence, is very good indeed!

    Gaston Bernal Has Passed Away

    Sad news. I met Bernal years ago at a Squadron Scalefest back in the early 1990's. A fun guy with a great sense of humor and love for modeling. The Decals he produced was outstanding and numerous! Gave us all some fantastic schemes to do our kits in, and the Warbird colors was some very nice paint. He will be greatly missed.

    TOP GUN: Maverik delay reasons

    For two reasons the movie was delayed. First, Tom Cruise flew below the deck in training. He was penalized for that. Secondly, he buzzed the tower just once to often and the Tower Boss finally got some "Ass" for having coffee spilled all over him from the "fly by". It is reported, that Tom Cruise is flying "Rubber Dog Sh*t" out of Hong Kong for a month. That is all......

    Kids and the future of modelling

    When I was in 9th grade, the High School I attended had a club hour once a week during school time. We also had a mandatory read a book hour once a week as well. I joined the model club which met on Tuesday mornings 2nd period. It was great! Guys who built cars, planes, ships, and armor. The Teacher was cool, and he built kits as well. We learned tricks from each other from paint to puttying. Also learned about the history, mechanics, and engineering aspects of the subject matter. Always looked forward to it. I wish schools did this now. Get them off the cell phones and expanding their worlds through clubs like this. Good for you Tom, for doing this. I'm sure those youngsters truly enjoy it!
