  1. Not to mention all of those missile options too!!
  2. Mike S has been working his 3D printing magic and there should be announcements coming out of Nats about distribution - I've sadly not been able to keep up with the news/pics/threads this time to know if it has been released or not, but I saw at our last club meeting what he's been doing and it is AWESOME... I'll see what I can bring to Telford. How did the LSP meet yesterday go? We DEFINITELY need some pictures of the guilty parties!. Chris
  3. Yes! Will see you in Telford (pending any further dramatics!)
  4. Thanks everyone! Just got her home yesterday and the appointment to meet the surgeon and discuss plans is this afternoon. Thinking of you all in Chattanooga!
  5. Folks, I am VERY sorry to say that I will miss Chattanooga. My 83 year old mother took her first flight in 30 years to see my oldest son and visit Portland, Maine. Less than 6 hours after arriving, getting the scenic tour by my son, she mis-stepped off a curb and broke her leg in 3 places. I'm currently in Portland, bringing her home tomorrow (Monday), but I'll have to stay around for a few days to get her settled and get her surgery scheduled (she wanted to come home to Virginia for the surgery). Really sorry to miss Nationals and seeing you guys but I hope to see you all next time. Telford maybe? Looking forward to seeing LOTS of pictures and hearing your stories. Who is getting Eduard's Mustang???? Cheers, guys. Chris
  6. Really looks AMAZING!!!! Super nice work and the detail is terrific. LOVE the Airscale adds actually. Nice stuff that you did exceptional work with. That seat and belts are a work of art onto themselves... Not to mention the IP....and Cockpit.. and.......
  7. I'm in for the Friday dinner, hoping judging doesn't go all freaking evening. Let me know when/where. Chris
  8. Somehow I missed that this aircraft you are building is from the 447th BG out of Rattlesden. A close friend of mine was a pilot with the 447th (The Blue Hen Chick of my avatar) and I have a lot of his materials, including copy of his mission log , the group's published history book, and a post-war 447th BG calendar from the 447th BG association. Let me know if you need anything. Chris
  9. Mike: Looking forward to the pictures!
  10. Thanks Maru. Guess will have to wait to see you until November in Telford. Not taking any excuses this year - you HAVE to make the trip!
  11. This weekend is supposed to have killer heat and humidity across most of the US. Sounds like the PERFECT excuse to stay in and get on our builds (and by 'our' I really mean 'mine')....
  12. Yeah yeah yeah. 'I got married' ... SUCH a lame excuse.... Brian, Actually, thrilled for you and congrats!! Definitely will miss seeing you this year. Just means you have to come to Telford to make up for it. Tell your new bride you are taking her on a trip to London in the fall.
  13. I'll be driving down, so there Tuesday - Saturday (judging Friday). Do we have a LSP group meeting planned again or a lunch/dinner/drinks? Sorry, have not browsed all the pages of this thread so might have missed it. Sadly - my Duchess Arlene is not near complete so not bringing her down, but my club, NovaIPMS will have a display table so I'll bring a few things down for that. Please stop by and say hi or hopefully will run into everyone at the LSP meeting. Anyone going to the space center on Thursday (kills an ENTIRE DAY!!)? My SO is flying back on Friday so I'm free Friday evening after judging... Chris
  14. Bring what you have and put it on the LSP table for everyone to gawk at. Give 'em (and us!) a preview for next year!
  15. Amazing work! LOVE following along. Are we going to see this beauty at Telford this year? Chris
  16. You ARE bringing all of this to the next NoVa IPMS meeting in July, right??
  17. MARU, you are not coming over this side of the pond this year?
  18. Great subject and really nice work! Thanks for sharing. Chris
  19. I'm done with this thread as well. Sadly, it definitely went sideways too. Delete, delete, delete....
  20. Agree with Radu and Peter. Don't be.. you know...and just stay on topic. The moderators do a great job and as I said before, I'd rather they err on the side of caution and keep this an interesting and friendly site. Yes, it is a bit of an escape. I can get 'real world' on CNN and NYTimes, BBC, etc. Are we done with this topic yet? Chris
  21. Looking good Sepp, your work is terrific and I'm envious of the Cricut. LOVE those muzzles. Who makes those please? Chris
  22. Jumping in late here after reading all of the thread. I much prefer to keep the content here on-topic as it relates to modeling, modeling research and information and the general, fun, light-hearted stuff I think most of us enjoy. You want to start a general discussion about your furry modeling partner or an impending nuptials? - go for it. We all have lives and I'll probably throw a 'like' in there myself. Debates on if it was 'blue or green' are ideal (most of you know what I'm talking about here) and help further what we do. Whatever the moderators lock or delete - I'm fine with - I trust their judgement and listen, this is not life and death and we all have other forums to voice our non-modeling related opinions on. The moderators history since I've been here has been really good and consistent. I'd rather they err on the side of caution, rather than let a toxic thread continue. FWIW. Arguments on Boeing vs Airbus or the such are not what I'm here for and hopefully people who want to engage in those discussions can do so privately or on another forum. Do I want to know what is really going on with the 737MAX issue - since I fly a lot - absolutely, but ideally not at LargeScalePlanes, and yes, we have some amazingly well informed people but hopefully we can take advantage of that often-inside knowledge via a link to somewhere else where the issues are debated, etc rather than hash it out here. The moderators have a difficult, expansive and unpaid role here making this a terrifically friendly and informative forum. Hopefully ALL of the moderators know we (the Royal 'we') greatly appreciate the job you all are doing. I do get turned-off when attacks become personal, confrontational or political, and that tends to drive me away for a while. I guess I''m not good at segmenting - just simply ignoring controversial threads. 'Arguments' on Spitfire vs Mustang vs Me-109 vs Yak - cool. I can identify a Yak 6 out of 10 times although often I think they are Bison. Back to a sunny, hot, Virginia Saturday and Happy Modeling to one and all! Chris
