  1. Hello: I was looking through ebay and noticed a chinese seller offering 1/32 planes at ridiculous prices. Don't know if it's legit: https://www.ebay.com/itm/2019-Trumpeter-02265-1-32-P-47N-Thunderbolt/123699327792?epid=2255338958&hash=item1ccd0df330:g:QkgAAOSwzaJX3uV7. His feedback is not bad but maybe someone on here has dealt with them before.
  2. Don't forget the bed liner. Don't want to scratch that fancy paint job. I remember when those were at the dealer. The local Chevy dealer wanted $25,000 for one. Still want one.
  3. The eyes are not what they used to be so 100% accuracy is not in my reach. Having said that, I'm convinced you could take any airplane out there and somehow magically reduce it to 1/32 size and enter it in a contest and people would still point out the inaccuracies of the "build". Jerry
  4. Got an extra $16,000 to spare! Check this out:https://www.ebay.com/itm/FG-1D-Corsair-Fine-Art-Models-Airplane-1-15-Bazan-Design-Limited-Edition-Kohs/143056901164?hash=item214edb142c:g:2OgAAOSw3BJcGUvD Don't know if I would buy one if I had the cash. Nice to look at. Jerry
  5. Still waiting for the rechargeable jetpack. Getting older and hate driving. Funny thing is, this will probably happen in my lifetime.
  6. I saw the special on Lynyrd Skynyrd on AXS tv early this year. Didn't know that a California dude had a big hand in the Skynyrds hits. I figured they were an all southern rock band. Have their greatest hits CD. Too bad for his loss.
  7. What kind of climbing gear did he use or are those special suction cups?
  8. Oh, a lot of mustang lovers down here ! My dream would be a Challenger Hellcat, but it's a bit overpriced for me (they're way more expensive overseas...). Maybe in the next years i would buy an old Charger of the early 70's. My car (with the canadian plates i got in the first months) : How much does it cost to fill the tank in that thing? I would think that's an investment there in France. Jerry
  9. Or some scissors and no alcohol consumption before hand. If you a are a large scale modeler then you probably have precise hand movement.
  10. Pull that trigger and do it. If it will make you feel better, make a half ass attempt to sell some of your stash to make the Mrs. feel better. That's what I'm gonna do when the 1/32 B-24 is released and what I had to do when I bought the TimeSlip Creations Discovery One from 2001: A Space Odyssey.
  11. Thanks for the information. Very useful.
  12. Hello: I noticed a all resin 1/32 B-25 on ebay. This is made by Marco's Miniatures and am wondering about the quality of this kit. Probably not Hong Kong Models level but does anyone know anything about this kit, accuracy, fitment of parts, etc? Thanks, Jerry
  13. I've sold kits on ebay and have sent items declared as a gift and declared value at much less than actual value of kit. Never had a lost kit anywhere and that included a 1/12 scale Tamiya F1 car to Kazakhstan and a 1/32 Revell P-38 to New Caledonia. I know you are not supposed to do this but this is often at the request of the buyer. What I am really surprised at is the reliability of the mail anywhere in the world. I sent a kit to someone in Brazil and it was returned some 4 months later because the individual gave me the wrong address. Yes, it is expensive to ship from the US to other countries including Canada but Air is the only option for USPS. And as an American I am glad we don't have the VAT but that could change. Jerry
  14. Yes, it could have been accidentally on purpose but 1 million US dollars is alot to pay for that. Just pointing out the dollar figure for that bombing run and it occured on April 1, 1944, no less. Don't want to make any waves here, but I have a problem believing that a well planned bombing raid that was designed to take out a key German target and unfortunately went astray into Swiss territory was "accidentally-on-purpose". Jerry
  15. Not quite desertion here, but in the Air Battles series of books by Tomasz Szlagor titled Mustangs over the Third Reich, a chapter titled Two Pronged Thrust begins with an errant bombing run by the 8th Air Force in to Swiss territory resulted in the U.S. government paying the Swiss 1 million dollars for that mistake. Also, some time back I was viewing a WW2 special on the history channel that mentioned up to a thousand U.S. soldiers deserted during the Battle of the Bulge. Don't know how true that was but I remember the story mentioned the deserting soldiers did not get alot of grief from their fellow soldiers who chose to stay. Jerry
