  1. No, not waiting. I received a shipment from Hannetts to the US in 8 days. A figure from Japan in 6 days and two kits from China in 13 days (ironically enough from the town next to Wuhan). All in the late April early May time frame... The interesting thing was the kits from Asia were just wrapped in foam and tape. No box! First time I experienced that.
  2. Probably all those WNWs post that caused the crash...
  3. Yeah, but they don’t have to come from China. Other places, to include the US, have the capability to manufacture just about anything. Sure, it might take some time, but not “end of the world” kind of time. We don’t do those things here because we don’t have to... Remember when some of the best models ever made were made right here in the good ol US of A? Besides, the Chinese don’t use all the stuff they make...they need the rest of the world too...
  4. I thought “stockpiling” was in our nature...we just call it a stash...
  5. Most people in the medical community will tell you the birthdays are good for your health and long life...
  6. Try XF83 for 697 and XF75 for 693.

    Doesn’t the letter say “international” and “overseas”...doesn’t sound like “fake news” at all. Even the response from Testors says US and Canada... So did someone point that out already?
  8. Do you know the difference between the two of you? He’s a doctor and you’re not. I’m pretty sure that’s what the “M.D.” means. I mean I’m not a doctor but I did make it past the 9th grade and the “M” stands for medicine and the “D” stands for doctor. I’m pretty sure it’s Latin so it’s in a funny order. Glad I could help.
  9. I have an Artograph 1530 and love it. It isn’t cheap and it doesn’t move well but.... I have used this portable unit and was greatly surprised at how well it worked. The price is right but it is smaller..... https://www.amazon.com/AW-Portable-Airbrush-Extension-Powerful/dp/B00Y83Y1C8/ref=asc_df_B00Y83Y1C8/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=198071540295&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=9882562563479218106&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=t&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9030453&hvtargid=pla-352472584999&psc=1
  10. It’s a small world...I can almost say the exact same thing! My father was a NASA engineer during the Apollo and Shuttle years. Saw many of the Apollo launches and a few of the Shuttle launches live growing up. Oh, I live in Albuquerque too...
  11. That's right Rick, we now know for certain the plane was orange and green.
  12. Thanks for posting. I didn't realize it was that close to flying. It did seem like the right canopy was open for the flight (ref: 2:24 and 2:50 in video). Is there a mechanism that opens both at one time?
  13. So you're saying the kit has fit issues... See where this goes? So if Tamiya is "above average" then does that make everything else just average or below average? I think it's semantics really. I have the ZM 229 kit and I think it's great. I'm glad its part of my collection. My problem is I'm just an average modeler so any kit that is better than an Airfix kit is lost on my skills. I look forward to seeing your Ki 45 when its done.
  14. You’re close Darren. He’s an amazing modeler so I’m sure our definitions of “average” vary a bit.
