  1. Why shoot and waste munitions? I just flew past them in full burner they went and hid like a 2 year old under a blanket
  2. Well yes among many others. Guaranteed his comments would be the basis for the MP's investigation as to the cause for the bar brawl that ensued.
  3. I was trying to behave this weekend Dave........
  4. Typical weather here on the wet coast - but yes - meat ready for the smoker and rest of the food in slow cook mode all day! at least we have reruns of hockey to keep us entertained Happy Canada Day!
  5. I flew the tutor in early 90's as a CAF pilot. Later as a Flight Safety officer (black diamond badge on my flight suit) and investigator I've seen my fair share of military aircraft accidents. I'd climb in to any and all those aircraft at any time. They are that well maintained. Things go wrong, yes, same as your car. We're not taking '60's cars off the road for maintenance or safety due to an accident when someone was killed? There are risks in everything we do, how we mitigate those high risks, respect and understand them is part of the job that we accept. Just an FYI - I need more than one
  6. Corona want the WHO to change the name of the Coronavirus to BudLightvirus
  7. A lot of CNC equipment does this - it's not limited to these cutters. I've seen this with glass cutting, plasma cutters, and others. It's a function of G-code - the code the actual cutter uses and priority assignment, optimization & waste from the base program and loads of other factors. While you think it's funky and maybe not the best for waste etc, it's the way it's programmed and cut code file generated.
  8. Yup - nothing but normal for resin parts. Sometimes even serious grinding and sanding isn't enough. As others have done this kit with the Aries pit - I'd say it's just down to how much fitting is needed. Find where the parts are too wide, start by sanding the interior of the fuselage halves to thin the plastic there first, then again on the tub where there is excess that doesn't match the curve of the fuselage. Inevitably a Dremel with a grinding bit is your best friend in these situations. Check the plastic against a light often to make sure you're stopping when the plastic is thi
  9. If you read this: http://www.wingnutwings.com/ww/product?productid=3189 It states at the bottom: Model Features: Halberstadt Cl.II escort fighter and ground support aircraft. I'll leave that to you gents to go wild with that one.

  12. Thank you Maru! Great ebook site. may just become a member there to see what all they have to read.
  13. Great! Thanks Nick. I'll see where I can find the book. Cheers!
  14. gents - I've exhausted my abilities to locate more pictures of this aircraft. All I've been able to come up with is one of the nose during refuelling and one of the plane on the deck with the nose obscured by a wing. Both are of the left side. Does anyone have any photos they wouldn't mind sharing? I'm looking for it's time on the USS Constellation, F-4J during it's Dec '71 to June '72 cruise. Looking to do Lt. Connelly's bird which had 2 mig kills on 10 May 72.
