  1. That's the way it used to be. Now, not so much.
  2. I had the Airfix 1/72 Valiant, and was 'gifted' a Mach 2 Valiant. It was like comparing a stone spear to a Japanese Katana. The only place the M2 kit excelled in was the box art, a cool pic of an orange sky, a white Valiant hurtling away from the nuclear blast it had just unleashed. Airfix? Not so dramatic.
  3. I bought their concorde, it is in 1 piece, and the box is the size of a casket.
  4. Single seat only? So, no Phantoms or Tomcats?
  5. I know nothing about coin collecting, but I had a friend when I was a kid whose dad collected coins. I remember him showing me a dime with 2 D's on it instead of 1, from the Denver mint. No idea of value.
  6. Cool, you're sure to see some monster elk up there.
  7. Tried the Finnish Long Drink, not bad.
  8. I took it up a couple years ago, still not really "playing", more noodling around the scale shapes I've learned, using YouTube backing tracks. I have a MIM Tele and a PRS SE 245 Standard with P90s.
  9. Sliding canopies and movable propellers is about as far as I'll go with moving features.
  10. So, I'm hitting a bit of a creative wall with the Yak and U-2. I'm getting burnt out engineering and making parts, and my machine has been acting up, so, I decided to just try something OOB, more or less. Here are some pics of my almost box-stock Thud's cockpit, the only changes were the cutting down of the back cushion, and homemade seat belts (not yet installed on the backrest)
  11. While I have not experienced any parts turning to powder, I had some jerry rutman parts start to break down and ooze what looked like pancake syrup.
  12. Correct. In addition to my ID U-2A, I have a paper TR-1 Senior Span in 1/33. Humongous.
  13. If you can find the Lodela version of the Revell kit, it has all the greeblies to make a Mk X. https://www.largescaleplanes.com/kitdb/details.php?kit=150
  14. I thought exactly that until I found a YouTube video showing some guy doing exactly that. I’ll try and find it- (actually, it was a stencil, but it was still painted on).
  15. I found fellow by that name online, in Dover, NH. Is that him?
  16. To paraphrase the old Crazy Eddie commercial, "(That detailing) is INSANE!!!!".
  17. Well, I've gotten bogged down a little on the Firebar, and want to work on something else for a bit, but still stay topical. So, on the 60th anniversary of FGP's fateful trip over the USSR, I dug out my ID U-2. It's already cut out and sanded, so, I don't have to worry about that. Pics to follow. I'm going to cheat a little (again) and try and steal the cockpit tub and seat, suitably modified, from a surplus-to-requirements Hasegawa F-104. Also, no decals!! Woot!
  18. I have a friend who does CAD, he told me the hardest thing to design in CAD is a teapot. I don't know why that would be, but he sounded like he wasn't kidding.
  19. ....... and, Jack drops the mike!! Well done that man.
  20. After getting absolutely plastered in Denmark in 1990, I vowed to never do that again, so my alcohol consumption is relegated to beer, and now, seltzer. Won't drink bud, gotta have standards, but I like Stella and (gasp!) Corona.
