  1. Oh man, I'd love to go, we love the Grapevine Tx area, but doubt I can get the time off from work. These things creep up so fast on me that I never remember to plan the trips until its too late.
  2. Looks great! What ratios did you use custom mix the colors? I hope GWH keeps putting out the different flanker series. I have 2 built so far, 1 su-35, 1 Su-27UB and a single seater B that is 3/4 done. I also have 8 of them in the stash and an SM on the way.
  3. I hope that Steve is ok as well. My thought is that is that I believe if ones deeply and heavily involved in something for so long that eventually burn out starts to set in. IMO doing anything 24/7/365 WILL fry just about anyone out if done long enough. After awhile it just gets to the point where one says F it and just has to walk away- cutting any losses and everything else associated with said subject. I've been there. Its like trying to recover an aircraft out of control and riding it too far in in hopes something suddenly happens but then just end up crashing and burning. P
  4. Anyone have this sheet they are willing to part with? Prefer complete sheet if possible but will settle for a good partial sheet too. Post or PM me if you can help, thanks!
  5. Not sure what the problem is.. our local hobby shop has 6 of them in stock on the shelf?
  6. You are probably right, in my many observations any college degree always trumps experience. If you have that piece of paper that says you went 2 years at the U in "Remedial Underwater Basketweaving" ( love that one BTW 👍) the world is yours. But if you only just have a bunch of time and experience working in the respective field your not worth squat.
  7. It's safe to say NONE of the upper management will be a part of the new squadron. Plus its a safe bet it will have probably 99% new people working there since it will most likely be based in Georgia. Besides it was mainly the last CEO lady that killed Squadron not any of the rank and file workers. I hope they do well.
  8. Luckily a few passes with some sand paper will take care of that If they did. I'm looking forward to this model. The GWH Flanker family have been great kits and the ones I've built so far have been a pleasure to build so keep them coming Haneto and GWH! I'm still in for several of these too.
  9. Thanks Scoobs, I did find that Dstorm.eu page where I got the phot but the other site will be helpful too. 👍 I may have to piece together some markings from a sheets.
  10. Looking for more info on this airframe. Either my research skills suck or there ain't much out there. I know it was involved in one of the Desert storm shoot downs but thats about all I came up with. Plus looking for any possible decal sheet for it as well, any help would be appreciated.
  11. THIS is the one I have been waiting for! I'm in for 5 of them!!
  12. Great news! My wallet will take a hit but I'm in for a bunch of them!
  13. ouch...that ones gonna hurt. I think Sprue Brothers ought to open a big chain of hobby shops across the country with a ton of stores. I'm sure it would be very popular!
