  1. I exchanged emails with him about 3 1/2 years ago when I was building his Nell kit, he was undergoing kemo then so he must have given it a good fight ! RIP Bill
  2. The biggest problem I have with CGI aircraft has to do with the flight characteristics. Apparently the CGI modelers have only played point and shoot arcade games and have no clue about flight dynamics. Even a few hours playing one of the Il-2 sims with full real settings would give them some clue.
  3. No wife, no kids, it will be up to the auctioneer .
  4. I have not participated in a group build on this site but have on others with mixed results as far as completions go. My issue is I really don't like deadlines. It's also easy to get sucked in if you have a kit that fits the topic but all too often I find I'm not motivated to build that particular kit at that time so it ends up on the shelf of delay.
  5. Since the craft is quite capable of operating without a crew they are for the most part just along for the ride unless something major fails. Seems to me they need to give the crew (passengers) something to do as they seemed to be quite bored during the countdown. I also found it interesting that they wait so late in the countdown to fuel up although I assume that saves money as they will lose less LOX due to venting.
  6. Since these molds were not Eduard's originally it's a little unfair to blame them for this omission and the work to correct may have been more than they wished to spend time and money on.
  7. Great build, lovely paint work !
  8. I'm also a model railroader and the same gloom and doom is discussed there as well, first it was slot cars then computer games, the hobby has waxed and waned over the years but is still surviving and currently with the same gray haired demographics. As the younger crowd ages I suspect many will be seduced into hobbies, I don't see either going away in my life time but then I'm an old dude.
  9. Your weathering reminds me much of the appearance of the Mossies used in the movie The Purple Plain which took place in India, very convincing
  10. Where are you getting your MRP paint that it takes weeks to get, Sprue Brothers has a good stock and even with CV-19 it shouldn't take more than 3 o4 days.
  11. #1 When I get to the point where I run out of patience or find I'm doing more damage than good. #2 Yes
  12. Lovely work ! The figures make the model really pop !
  13. A local auto body repair shop's ads where they are constantly whining about arguing with insurance companies to fix cars right always ends the ad by saying " Remember, they are not on your side, they are not your good neighbor and you are not in good hands"
  14. Very nice, I like your weathering effects !
