  1. I have had the same allergic reaction, congestion in the nose, watery, irritated eyes. I switched to a "fumeless" gap filling ca, and the reaction disappeared.
  2. Don't forget, Matt, Foote was a Virginian, after all!!
  3. Oh my gosh, there are so many!! The Longest Day, The Great Escape, A Bridge Too Far, Kelly's Heroes , Run Silent, Run Deep, Das Boot, The Battle of Britain!!!!, The Enemy Below (I like submarine movies!), Catch 22..... I could go on.....
  4. This probably does not count, as it is a documentary miniseries, but Ken Burns' "The Civil War" based on the historian Shelby Foote's monumental work of the same name. Additionally, Blackadder's "Blackadder Goes Forth" is probably the most poignant depiction of life (and death) in the trenches of WWI. I know, it doesn't count as a mini-series, either, but it is perfect!! Oh! And I cannot bear the anticipation of Tom Hanks' and Steven Spielberg's next instalment, I think it will be called "The Mighty Eighth" if I am not mistaken.
  5. I could not agree with you more, George!!
  6. Kevin, hi. One of the ways I got my son interested in history would be to encourage him to read the brief historical blurbs about the aircraft we were building, that most model manufacturers provide. From there, he went on to do more extensive research about the aircraft, and now he is quite the scholar on World War II. His horizons have expanded and he has a better perspective and handle about his present day world. I don't know how old you are, nor is it particularly relevant, but I would encourage you to do the same thing. Start by reading the blurbs; go on from there. Who knows, you may d
  7. I am a historian by profession. Therefore, for me building a model is an act of researching history as well as a hobby. Hope this makes sense.
  8. This one has served me faithfully and well for years. Hope this helps. Email: cbmodelproducts@hotmail.com
  9. If the Co2 tanks Jennings is referring to is what I am thinking of, it should be quite inexpensive (depending on where you live). Be aware, that Co2 tanks do have a limited life span and must be tested and certified safe (again, depending on the local regs where you live) after every so many refills. There is cost involved, especially if the tank can no longer be certified. In my area, most dealers are willing to offer you deals, however, when you need to replace the tank. Hope this helps a little.
  10. Jennings; Do you mean directly from a Co2 cannister such as one might use in a planted fish tank to supplement the available Co2 for the plants? If so, what kind of adaptor are you using? Thanks in advance!!
  11. Well done folks!! Looks like a whole lot of people had a nicer end to 2020 because of this generous thing you do. Cheers to you all!!
  12. Absolutely no argument there!! Then our elderly and those most likely to suffer fatality from this virus. Then, the rest of us! Thanks again, for all you are doing to keep us safe!!
