  1. From what I’ve heard, the world model is online so you have to stream the graphics because of storage and processor speed issues. So to take advantage of it you’ll need unlimited super fast broadband rather than a big computer
  2. I’ve been to Honiara..so yes. Didn’t stay long. Apparently there’s tons of dumped unexploded munitions of the end of the old pier in the main harbour
  3. I see on the barracuda Facebook page that Roy is ‘finishing off a lot of projects’ before he goes to the nationals. Are any of them ours? *fingers crossed emoji
  4. Looks like an easy fix with some sandpaper?
  5. There is an acknowledgment out in online purchase land, that people are wroughting the system..often the listed price is deliberately low in the knowledge that some people will go through with a purchase because they don’t check or can’t be bothered cancelling and sellers know that their profit is being taken by overcharging freight. eBay and Amazon have been bringing freight costs upfront to the first transaction page or quoting total prices including freight specifically to combat this. It’s guaranteed that high freight costs don’t represent the true cost of shipping though..be assured of that
  6. Wow awesome.. do those rear threat radar things like being cooked on the titanium shrouds all day?
  7. Roy is at a modeling Expo of some sort in Germany..Moson? hes a busy man..I hope he can fit our project in. It’s not exactly the sort of work he normally does!?
  8. Pic was in the Science Museum in LA over the road from the USC campus. They also have a 2 seat SR-71 trainer and the Space Shuttle (Discovery?)...just don’t turn the wrong way and end up in South Central LA
  9. Since you’re now in possession of an HpH Merlin, why don’t you model a cowl open?
  10. Oh hell! I thought you lived in Blenheim Anthony?
  11. Apparently he told his family that he had an appointment with a spacecraft and was leaving to live with aliens and was never seen again. In reality his truck was found on the side of a mountain and had human remains inside..it had been blown up in a remote location. It appears that whoever was in it had committed suicide. His P40 was purchased from his estate (off of his parents) and had parts of a Blenheim fuselage and an epenage from a Harvard (t-6 Texan)..but was properly restored to flying condition as N7205A..”old exterminator”
  12. Scuse my ignorance but what’s the difference? Aside from the color, fuel tanks and refueling probe is there much else?
  13. It had lots of horrible reputations..like one cannon shell through the spar between the fues and either engine 2 or 3 and it was bye-bye wing
  14. Wingnut will bring out a mirage 2000 kit just before the Kitty Hawk one is released
  15. I'm waiting and searching everywhere for these pics..?
  16. Probably loading ammo into the drum, then feeding it into the gun and loading it ready for a sortie I’m not sure if it’s the same as the A-10 but you can see the gun turning as the ammo is fed into the drum. Traditionally if the gun rotates the pin fires..I’m not sure how you make that safe other than making sure no live rounds are in the gun while it’s turning??
  17. I found this clip of LSP_Ron’s house from this last weekend:
