  1. Ok sorry for that. I know you have a lot invested in your bearing and pulley but Just a thought here....and that is all. The gearing looks reversed as it exists now I propose that instead the driving gear or pulley attached to to motor should be the larger diameter and the pulley or gear on the rotating wings should be smaller in gearing or diameter. That way the motor (with larger diameter gear) can rotate at a lower RPM yet "overdrive" the smaller gear on the center wing section. That change would seem to me to generate more effect for less power drain. Just a thought. Jon
  2. Sorry Kevin must have missed that. Too... Many... Words... Arrrgghh.
  3. Since you will be mounting it to a base why don't you look into powering it with a transformer? Rig it like the sci-fy studio scale models. You can run the wires up the mounting rod. Jon
  4. Radu, Looks very promising! So very glad you had some input on this very overlooked yet extremely historic fighter. No doubt all will be in very well in order here. Jon
  5. I just ran across this. I found it very interesting although it is very old news. Jon
  6. Super....Saber (Jim) Jon
  7. Thomas, Looks great, two of my favorites. Glad you fought through and whipped these. Will look great in your collection two examples if of two fine pilot's steeds. The "Kid's" mustang is very nice and the whitewall tires are so 1940's! The red rims on Gentile's plane don't look bad. I still have to finish my stalled Shangrila Stang. Bravo. Jon
  8. Harold may not be a Lumberjack but.... He's OK! Jon
  9. Great job. Very well built kit and looks exactly like a 219. Super airbrushed paint job. Well done on your build. Cheers, Jon

  12. You should add a 3rd kit a Revell J2M3 kit as well!! Jon
  13. If I recall correctly the Trumpeter (Frog) Mig15 was the begining of the rebirth of the 1/32 large scale kits.
  14. Jerry, The first thought I had when they described the dimensions (75 feet) was that it was a wing. If it flew that far it would most likely be out of fuel and the fuel tanks keeping the debris floating due to air trapped in the wing tanks. Unfortunately the discovery of 120 additional debris is not good. If they were aware of the situation those are most likely floatation devices or worse due to the number. Jon
  15. Love the Disney "Flying Tiger"! Very cool Jon
  16. Great job! Looking forward to your next LSP.
  17. Very cool Lee. Just held my iphone straght out in front and turned around. Neato! Look up and look down. Very interesting that it can pick up these fine movements of the iphone attitude. It seems that would also make a great controller for a flight sim. Jon
  18. Excellent kit yes... Super build most apparent. AND painted with a brush no less. Very nice looking build. Jon
  19. Cool! The Banshee is just so ugly! Great time.
  20. Just found another started build.... A revell/monogram p51B splice. For Shangri La build. I just was going through the garage today cleaning it out so I could finish working in my YZF R1 putting on new sprockets and chain. Well I started cleaning and one thing led to another and started going through boxes of models. I dug out my scratch-build Fokker DVIII Razor and got inspired. A 2 hour job on the bike turned into 8 as I cleaned garage, bike parts as I was working and washed two cars! Inspiration to finish the WWI plane after seeing it is fairly complete sub-assemblies. Jon
  21. True, but it was the "way" you said it.... Lol, It is one I would like to see because my Uncle flew night invaders in Korea. I sure would like to see a kit. Jon
  22. Sounds as if Jennings knows something???
  23. I do not think this poll is organized very well as all catagories and scales are mixed in a hidge podge fasion. I am firm in belief that it should be by scale and subject.
  24. Very nice photography color saturation and contrast very good. I like the light fall-off too. Very good looking P40. Jon
