    Dragon's Sturmpanzer IV- 19/Dec/18

    Then you would have hated the time I built a Mobelwagen, Wirbelwind, and Ostwind at the same time, followed by a Nashorn. And to be an even bigger dumbass I was painting the roadwheel rubber by hand.

    I devote the variety aspect to my LSPs and subject matter like Sci-Fi kits and VW buses. I find there is plenty of variety in the German armed forces alone, although I might take on WWII Russian when I am done. Also been considering a set of contemporary U.S. AFV's just so my daughters' friends would have something they recognized.

    I actually have most of the major versions and variations as I have been trying to model every production vehicle found in the Encyclopedia of German Tanks of WWII. I am shy about 30 vehicles now and those are the lesser known or ones produced in very small numbers.

    Hobby Boss 1/32 B-24J - Initial Observations

    Not to be rude, although I don't care if you take it that way, but quite frankly the opinion of people who have no intention of buying a certain item is meaningless to me. I have been watching your posts and they are predominately a pile of negativity. We get it; you don't like the kit. And yet you spend so much time and energy on it that to some it may seem baffling. Not to me, though. I run in to this type of behavior quite a lot at the behavioral health facility I work at.

    I would also like to be a entrant.

    That will depend a bit on the particular model and the factory that built it.

    Hobby Boss 1/32 B-24J - Initial Observations

    From what I can see (and I am no Liberator expert) it seems the working space inside that nacelle is pretty small and you aren't going to see much past the front of the engine anyway. Although I do agree they could have put more detail on that visible piece. I don't know if that PE part really steps it up enough. They obviously are hoping the aftermarket rescues them. As for my build and display needs, no one will be getting close enough to it to notice -- nor would they know any better. At least the engine isn't a flat piece you stick a decal of an engine on top of; that would be some crap for sure.

    The Collings plane was still All American when I saw her.

    I'm not a member; I only belong to online stuff like this as the local club is a bit over an hour from me into crap city traffic. Plus they meet at the area HobbyTown USA which doesn't really sell much I don't already have. Their 1/32 section is pretty sparse. I just can't be bothered to join any organization if I am unable to commit to making meetings and events.

    Prepare to have your mind blown...

    I hate them for the social cost. I just started a new job and during our training we were taking a break, which I decided to use to get to know my fellow newbs. After a brief, perfunctory response to my questions phones would come out and noses were buried in screens until the trainer returned. I don't need to know everything about my coworkers, but I do kind of like to know a little something about the people I have to spend 40 hours a week with. But yes, they can be a bit awkward to hold. I am accidentally rearranging my icons, taking photos, or turning on the mp3 player no matter how I try to hide them from my brutish digits.

    Big quake in Anchorage

    Was it a direct hit or was the shocked passed to you through materials you were in contact with? I have been shocked a couple of times during severe electrical storms because I was leaning on metal fencing while strikes were hitting the trees in the woods around my house.

    I decided to be primarily OOB and build for the fun of it. I am building for me, not competition.

    I personally don't care. I'm the only one who will know the wing is off, but no one who visits my home is likely to know and my secret will be safe.
