  1. Well I was going to go but my appendix had other plans for me and decided to leak/perforate a few weeks ago and since I walked around unknowingly for awhile with it perforated (I thought it was a stomach bug), I'll be dealing with that this week .. Something I don't recommend BTW and luckily the infection didn't go septic. Fortunately I was able to cancel the hotel and get refunded but, damn I wanted to go!
  2. If I am not mistaken that is the OLD revell mold from way back when (mid 1980's). I wouldn't touch it unless you want a basic slate for a super scratch build/P/E resin project. The new revell mold is much better as is the new Italeri one but that is a GR4. HTH
  3. Our local hobby shop has them already! Took this pic this morning just as they came in..
  4. Yup, the John Holmes of the squirrel tail world.
  5. Good save, glad no one was inured. It sucks though that they will probably have to tear it apart again from all the salt water getting into everything
  6. That's easy, the engineer is the one standing around and NOT getting his hands dirty, (god forbid).
  7. Harv, I am interested in the f-5f... Pm sent
  8. Good choice!! Quite frankly I would've picked that house over Vegas too.
  9. Well you can tell the guy that he has pretty good computer skills for being in his late '90's. Marvel him for being next to the real thing in Germany/Europe in 1944 and had time to study or measure out the tank in detail while he was there and record the markings/color/options/etc for posterity. Problem is that most of the folks that used most of the subject matter we build in miniature from past wars didn't care what it looked like or the color or the dimensions of it. The only thing 99% cared about was that their equipment kept them alive to let them go home one day.
  10. Hell yeah, now that would be a fun side trip! Trust me, if I could I would. Maybe we can walk around the vendor room together and make everyone feel short.
  11. I never signed up for any of the popular social media bullcrap. The headaches/BS far out weigh the benefits in my opinion and wallowing through a bunch of pretentious garbage to find tidbits of good isn't my way to spend my rare free time. I check out a few modeling forums and few hot rod/muscle car forums and that's it. The whole social media ordeal is driving people apart more than it's bringing people together IMO.
  12. I feel ya! Colder than crap here too. 8* last night. Ironically enough my challenger looked very similar.
  13. Oh man!! Here is to a speedy recovery Harv!
  14. Wow, only 14? We need to work on increasing that number... I have that many on my bench just in the build rotation!
  15. I will be there! Got plenty of LSP's to bring to the point of attaching a trailer to my suburban to haul it to LV.
  16. If we are saying any scale I'd have to say the GWH 1/48 Su-27UB. Awesome detail, fit (so far) is nearly perfect, another gem from GWH.
  17. Yes they did, they even put the stick on the other side for the British variant....
  18. See Ern, what a great support group you have here, we all forgive you and we are willing to help relieve any guilt that you may have.
  19. Well Ern, It's only gluttony if it's over 100 kits! However if it is, I'll second Bill's advice.
  20. That is great! I bet that was not cheap.
  21. i have a tall tamiya mixing cup that I spray it into. Don't spray it straight down, spray it toward the side of the mixing cup to disperse the splatter.
  22. I just decant the testors dullcoat spray into a container then into my airbrush, no thinner mixing needed. Been doing that for years no problems other than an occasional mess.
  23. Good to hear all went well! Indeed if someone at a model show spit, licked or touched me inappropriately (unless it was a good looking gal) they would be in a hospital and not because of covid, lol!
