  1. You are off to another great start,Greg! The crew and the 'pit are looking great......I'm looking forwards to seeing how you tackle the mighty Hasecat! -Dave
  2. This is really an excellent article,Aaron. Well done! -Dave
  3. Awesome job on that Valkyrie! I like the gray tone you used. I guess I can forgive you using my favorite pilot's name on the wrong plane! :blink: -( Just kidding,but there's a reason my online name is "Maxtype"! ) Nicely done all around.You owe it to yourself to pick up the original Macross and watch it-still a true classic of mecha anime!
  4. Joel,I have the Softtop Diamond T I bought a couple years ago through Great Models.Beautiful kit,but the 2nd most I've ever spent! Very Expensive!
  5. Guys,you have GOT to check the reviews of Voyager and Enterprise on SF Debris .Laugh out loud,make you cry funny skewering of the shortcomings of both programs.Some adult language here. -Dave
  6. You are doing your usual bang-up job,Jon. I'd of voted for this scheme myself. -Dave
  7. The thing I'm worried about is I heard Caprica is going to be "The OC in the BSG universe". Lawyers and love affairs junk. Vipers! I want Vipers! :) -Dave
  8. Roger that. I'm going to call her an F-16H. Thanks! -Dave
  9. Awesome job on both,Greg! The Tiger and Kubelwagon have a very 'lived-in' vibe, and the Hanomag dio is quite action packed. Lets see some more! -Dave
  10. Yes! That sounds like just what I need. Now if we can get them to do a 1/350 Reliant........
  11. Your kids are adorable! And please congratulate your daughter,she did a great job! -Dave
  12. Call it a tie between Classic Trek,the Classic Star Wars Trilogy,and the anime Super Dimensional Fortress Macross! I also love Aliens,BSG,Babylon 5, and Space:Above and Beyond.
  13. Classic Cake-welcome to modeling and to ARC! I agree about starting with Tamiya 1/48 prop-planes. I would recommend the 1/48 F4U-1D.The beautiful Corsair.Very nice kit,easy paint scheme. I also recommend ordering it from Sprue Brothers. Good luck! -Dave
  14. She is lookin' incredible,Greg! Glad to see you got past the warpasaurus issues. As always,I'm very impressed with the effects you achieve with your pre-shading. Cheers -Dave
  15. Awesome start,Guy! I'll be watching this one VERY closely! -Dave
  16. Craig,if possible I would be very interested in a .jpeg of your Y-Wing templates! -Dave
  17. I'd be down for a Vulcan and a BUFF.....................remind me to tell my little brother,too,he loves the Vulcan! -Dave
  18. Considering how awesome the Modern Viper Guide is,and the fact I've got 3 Hasegawa F-15s and Wolfpack Resins update sets calling me from the stash................ I'm completely psyched! Thanks Jake! -Dave
  19. That IS a most interesting picture....................thanks!
  20. I used too! Remember the old days when half the 'Mechs were from Macross,Dorvack,and I think Orguss? :lol: I prefer the Secession Wars,too. It was the era of my intro to the game. -Dave
  21. Jake, your work looks sweet so far! I'm psyching myself up to try Guy's visor technique in 1/48th................... Also,I'm REALLY looking forwards to the 'Eagle' guide! -Dave
  22. This Phantom is looking sweet! I'll be following along......... Cheers, -Dave
  23. Hi Murph. First off,if I say anything dumb in this response,it's my error,not my brother. He told me it's basically two things: Networked expert-systems are a more elegant and efficent solution to the kind of management that say HAL or Data would represent then trying for a single processor solution-especially the programming hours it would take to even try (note-that's the part I have to check with Jim on to see if I'm quoteing him accurately) Secondly:he believes,as do I,that human brain function is so complex and so mysterious,with chemical interactions,that there is essentially no way for a computer to mimic what we can't even comprehend.So as he says-no 'living' computer. Being able to process equations at Gigabytes per second isn't a brain. Anyhoo.........this is the kind of thing my brother and I talk about over a beer. Cheers, -Dave
