    Sorry these are a bit naff, I took them years ago when men were men and cameras had some funny reel of plastic in the back, it was a families day I flew to in a Puma that we displayed.

    Because too many people are screaming for F-111's, T-38's, FG Mk 1's. FGR MK 2's, etc...
    I'd be in for a kit or two of the rest of the century series myself.

    etendard reacted to Tomcat14 in Trumpeter 1/32nd scale F-8 Crusader done   
    Well Guys I'm Back after a long Hiatus away from the Forum for a while. Between work and no modeling MoJo I just now finished the F-8 Crusader Project I was working on. I used Trumpeters 1/32nd scale kit pretty much out of the box with the kit decals to. I had made and placed some homemade decals to use from another squadron but screwed them up putting them on so had to remove them and use the kit decals instead. There where no real fit issues with the kit and I think it looks pretty nice the way it came out with the heavy weathering I did to it. I have had to switch to using Imgur Hosting sight for now so hope the pics show up. My next post for my model build will be something completely different and new to me so stay tuned for more to come soon.

    I do not mean to rain on anyone's parade, but "Nice" is a funny word to use when referring to that terrible war.
    Over 9 years 1,353,000 human beings died and for what? 
    So we could stop the spread of Communism?
    Well Vietnam "won" and went commie and did the feared result, the dreaded spreading of communism to all the other countries in that area of the world actually occur?  No, and now we are friendly with the Vietnamese communist government  and we trade with them and there is investment in their industry.
    So why did, according to Guenter Lewy's figures,
    282,000 Allied military men and women have to die? 
    444,000 NVA/VC military deaths occur?
    and
    627,000 Civilians (North and South Vietnamese men, women and children) lost their lives.
    Total deaths = 1,353,000
    That is a lot of human beings, a lot of human suffering. 
    Lets not forget the after effects of the war, with 42,000 deaths caused by unexploded ordnance doing what it was supposed to do and actually exploding years afterward. 
    Plus the Red Cross of Vietnam estimates that up to 1 million people are disabled or have health problems due to contamination by Agent Orange.
     
    Lets face it, human beings are simply not nice creatures. We excel at maiming and killing our own kind. Many of us revel in the butchery, at least until they get involved and get maimed or killed themselves.
     
    Granted, we cannot change human nature. But at least can we stop using terms like "nice" when discussing the technology.

    In an idle moment, it came to me that what we really need - or is that just really want? - is a state-of-the-art 1:32 Vampire/Venom series. Anyone else of that opinion?

    Without meaning to get political, the single market is a great idea. But it's the associated things that I think people were not too keen on - the inability to control immigration, the fact the EU Courts were superior to UK Courts meant we are unable to make our own laws (which is undemocratic), the inability to control all our own tax rates, the inability to financially support UK companies, the inability to negotiate trade deals, the fact that the UK is one of only two countries that trade more with the rest of the world than it does with Europe, the fact that we send £8,500,000,000 to the EU every year, the fact that we have a massive trade deficit with the EU, the feeling that the enormous EU bureaucracy was stunting economic growth and trumping UK democracy, the fact that the UK was unable to vote out EU politicians it disagreed with, the ability to control our own fishing areas - you may not agree with all the reasons, but it's a reasonable enough argument.

    My point is:
    Are there only accurate kits and the rest is tosh?

    Not to self: follow up the good advice and do not read similar threads.
