  1. Kent............... I agree with Tom, for those of us who cannot make it there, your explanation and the few photos are awesome, many thanks for sharing, I only wish there was more, so as I and maybe others can get a grasp on the size of it all , and what it all looks like... I'm surprised there aren't more photos posted by all that went there......may be a bit redundant for those who went, but a larger majority of us couldn't be there, thanks for sharing your experience, it was ( is ) great, and really interesting....
  2. Of no consequence for your request, but my dad used to deliver news papers to Amy Johnson, back in the day..... just a tid bit of useless info....
  3. Spectacular job on the Rotodyne, best I have ever seen.....
  4. I LOVE to see a guy with a Mustang handle build a Chevy !!!
  5. I can't live without Pay Pal....
  6. The hydraulic lines to all the motors looks perfect..... when you rig the cables, do you use one LOOOONNNG piece or multiple short pieces?
  7. Michael............... you kill me, another master piece
  8. Well, it certainly looks as though I missed a great party............................ damn............. I will say, thanks to you all who went for the posts, and the pics, that makes me feel like I was there and also like I was peeking through the worm hole as they say......................I am glad you all made it home safely, and thanks for posting the pics etc for those of us who couldn't make it....... it was almost like we were there, kinda,............... sorta....... thanks everyone
  9. GEEZ.........................................................
  10. AWESOME, thanks Andy... not like there is any other life duties eh?? LOL
  11. Hahaahaaaaaa, I chuckled at the " pee-pour" planing bit, I thought.......... "oh, man standing in line for an hour then having to leave the line to PEE????!! " OH NO !""" YES, THAT would be poor planning ..LOL!!!!
  12. Even a picture of the line up would be cool !!!
  13. Wow, thanks for that tid bit Mike, Pearl is a VERY interesting place, and I do remember when I was there ( back in the early '80s') ) the visitor center was rather sparse... I do recall being in awe that the Arizona was still leaking oil, and I have seen lately she still is.... that is incredible after all these years and what she went through..........I remember the USS Bowfin as well, a great visit there too, but LONG before they added Mighty Mo..... now there is an exhibit I'd LOVE to see, much history there......to be at the place where the war started for the USA and to be on the same ship basically where it ended.... how cool is that................. The Missouri has a family connection...... I have a second cousin who was a war correspondent for Reuters, and ( This is documented) , was with Doug MacArthur in Corrigador, my second cousin, escaped the island under fire in a stolen boat in the dark................... you can't make this up............ and he was with MacArthur for the whole war and was on BB63 at the surrender ceremonies....... my wife found all this doing the family research thing........................personally, I think that is really cool....... Sorry Squizzy, getting a bit off topic here..... but the Arizona and Missouri, and Perl Harbor is so interesting....... I will be following your build of this magnificent ship and kit........ Jeff
