    Cessna 172, Nichimo, 1/20

    I have always wondered if this kit was any good, I have flown many hours in 172's, would be cool to build it as one I have flown, maybe even the one I solo'd in a long time ago.

    Another LHS closing...sign of the times

    I was spoiled living in the Dallas are for 15 years, there were no less than 6 hobby shops I could go to withing a half hour drive, unfortunately, since I moved to Nashville, there are only two hobby shops, but one concentrates on trains and games, has almost no model supplies, and the other is primarily an RC shop, but they are trying to stock more plastic hobby supplies, but their kit selection seems to be the same crap Hobby Lobby carries. I have talked with my wife a while back about opening a hobby shop, but I have trouble justifying the need for it in this market, as other shops can't seem to make it. I think for now, people have gravitated to online purchases, and the only way to open a new shop and be successful is to have a great selection, but that cost money. and the likelihood of success is low.

    Glucosamine and Chondroitin?

    This thread is funny, because I have had arthritic problems since I was in my teens, now, I will be 50 this year, and I have made some observations. I am also prone to developing bone spurs, so I have tried a lot. I tried taking the joint supplements, and I found they didn't make a noticeable difference to me. However, I had two dogs that were taking these, and they seemed to help them move around better, although one of them eventually had to be euthanized because of his back issues. What worked for me was what every doctor will tell you, eat healthy, lose weight. my last doctor I had before I moved, believed that wheat products caused issues for a lot of people, I tried the "Wheat belly" diet (there is a book) and it worked for me for a while, but then life happened and I stopped practicing it, I am now thinking about restarting it again. Sounds simple, but I think they might just be on to something. I have been to a specialist and he had ruled out Rheumatoid arthritis, but I found out I had lupus, but it was dormant, he believed it may flare up occasionally and cause me problems. As far as true arthritis joint pain, I have been taking a drug called Meloxicam, which really works for me.

    what block does the Hobbyboss B-24J represent?

    Doing my own research, the basic aircraft appears to be most likely a B-24-CO-??? Most of the features of the kit point to this plant, however a few details don’t match. The nose gear doors should have folded inward, and some minor details should have changed by the late blocks. At one time I believed it could have had a Ford nose and tail, but I have since doubted my early observations. It is not impossible for this aircraft to have been built, the nickname “Consilidated Mess” was rightly earned. There were knockdown assemblies from other manufacturers built and shipped all over to the different plants, so it’s very possible that two consecutive aircraft could have different noses, turrets, and other structures. I spent hundreds of dollars buying numerous books and doing as much internet picture research as possible. I have yet to determine, and I think others may agree (some not), that the aircraft Hobby Boss used to pattern this kit after still remains a mystery. I solved this dilemma by deciding to build a fictitious aircraft that will be my choosing of features.

    Is Jerry Rutmann still here?

    Squadron sells the True Details line. I had a set of Eduard and True Details Tires for my P-61, I gave away my Eduard and kept the True Details. So I have a lot of respect for them.

    Corsair, can it have one wing up and the down?

    FYI, according to cockpit pictures, the USN Corsairs had a single lever that was marked "Spread-Neutral-Fold" next to it was a lockout lever so it wasn't accidentally tripped. What you are seeing in the second video is probably a tired hydraulic pump or possibly air trapped in the system. As you see, both wings start to spread, but when the left wing tips over and starts to drop, the weight of the wing pulls on the hydraulic cylinder, causing a temporary pull, resulting in a drop in pressure, which made the right wing stop moving. As soon as the pump caught up, the right wing started moving down again. Its feasible that in the neutral position, the locks can be disengaged and manually fold the wing. Its also possible that the Royal Navy asked for separate L/R levers.
