  1. Oh, I'd like a shirt with that print. The Fiat C.R. 42 in London has a funny camouflage, although not as removed from reality as that Mi-24.
  2. You're right - mixed 'em up with the RV kits. I stand corrected.
  3. Hi, Artmodel already makes the duckbill family in 1/72. Looking at the sprues, they seemed pretty decent kits. Do they have faults that I am unaware of? Just curious, I'll surely pick up the 1/48 Trumpeter but might do a Cuban BN in 1/72 in the future.
  4. Artist's impression: the proposed Sea Raptor with floats under the wings for buoyancy, seen here in a ditching attempt.
  5. There was an article in FSM describing a conversion to get the Thunderscreech, in the '90s to the noughties. Unfortunately I can't remember either the scale or what was the starting kit, perhaps even Lindberg's Thunderceptor...
  6. The Samsung ES75 I had at work was a pretty good camera as far as macro was concerned. My current camera is a Sony DSC-HX20V. Macro: In low light: Same lighting as the previous picture, up close and personal with the Blenheim on the shelf, no flash:
  7. I'm preparing an MSDS for this substance as we occasionally use it as a solvent and for cleaning equipment. I'll let you know how the OHSAS auditor reacts to that.
  8. I made a kinda tutorial in this here thread
  9. I don't know why a Chuck but I can tell you that the name Panda comes from this: Same manufacturer, same attitude.
  10. I know saffron is expensive, however, the way it is packaged, you'd have to grab a dozen bags to get the monetary equivalent of a prepaid gift card. If I were a shoplifter I'd go for the gift card. As per the tasteless, we'll have to agree to disagree...
  11. I never built any of these but if I had to do it I wouldn't count on glue alone - depending on the type of stress at play it would be either pins (shearing forces) or a loop of copper wire (pulling forces), disguised of course.
  12. Two days ago I was at a different super than the usual and I saw they had the bags of saffron near the counter, locked under slabs of clear plastic. Apparently people steal them. I can understand - though not condone - stealing some big-money item if you can't afford it otherwise, but 4€ worth of a tasteless spice? I don't get it.
  13. Looks like Lavochkin's finest has some Ki.44 blood in its lineage... This reminds me of some "popular art", like...
  14. Why not. Not sure what disclaimers apply, however I'm in no way associated with MAV Decals, only a satisfied customer. Their decals are ALPS printed and will need some additional work before they can be used on a model. Then again, who's ever even arrived to the painting stage...? Not me. Linky
  15. Just a line to review; nice website, excellent selection, great service. Recommended.
  16. I agree with you if by the "correct group" you mean whoever is providing the money for the weapons, the travels, the lessons, the schools,and compensation to the families of the suicide bombers. The best way to extinguish a gas tank that's on fire is to turn off the valve, then douse the flames in foam. IMO intervening in Iraq, Afghanistan or Syria means confronting the adversary on a terrain of their own choosing and shorten the travel distance for whoever lives in the vicinity and wants to gain a ticket to Paradise by killing a Western heathen. I don't remember when and where I read that the security services were heading into trouble because they weren't hiring the 'right' people... will try and get back on that. EDIT: Got it. As usual the husband doubles up as a data storage device... it was Edward Luttwak in The Virtual American Empire: War, Faith, and Power (Chapter 15, "Snobs Make Better Spooks") However. This is not like the Cold War when each side wanted to know more about the other, while causing as little stir as possible because of the possibility of an all-out war. ISIS does not need to give to their recruits any more intel than "go to X and pull this trigger once you get there", so it's doubtful whether the security services will be able to bring back anything useful. Depends on what you mean by 'winning'. There's a saying that every organization, no matter its goal when it was created, will mutate until its goal is just self-perpetration. It happened, for instance, with the Communist Party. I suspect that whatever the declared goals of ISIS may be, it will consider it a "victory" if it manages to keep existing, managing funds, controlling a certain amount of people and money, and proving itself worthy in the eye of its financers by scoring a hit like the one at Charlie Hebdo once in a while. Please note, I'm discussing strategy, NOT politics.
  17. I know someone already mentioned the Hobbycraft LSD period but this was particularly haunting: The Almighty himself is going to pop up from behind those cloud and put the misshapen Flogger out of his misery. For his own good, the box artist was never allowed to get any closer to the model than this. Then there's: Let the X-32 jokes begin! "Having successfully set fire to a toy truck, the Heroes of Communism tiptoe on the snow through the miniature village."
  18. updated. I don't understand why on eBay.it, listings won't appear in international searches.
  19. Kazan Su-9 Fishpot-B 1/48 conversion SOLD XKit Mystere IV A 1/48 SOLD FM Vautour II B 1/48 SOLD Kazan Su-11 Fishpot-C 1/48 conversion SOLD JMGT MD 450 Ouragan SOLD Kazan MiG-27 conversion
  20. Sorry to hear about it. The numbers are in your favour however. This month I celebrated my tenth anniversary since I was diagnosed - a date that I had a 50% chance of reaching. Also bear in mind that the 5-year survival statistics are always relative to the treatment available 5 years ago... So don't be afraid, not by default at least.
  21. Never mind, we can make a thread about the Xuntong Il-4 and they'll fit nicely. I thought the Victory Park Il-4 was a replica, at least partially? The nose shape looks odd.
  22. Of course! I will try and submit a build myself, but that will be towards the end of the year. Let's keep our fingers crossed. For now, enjoy (meh) the banner...
  23. Thanks to everyone for your replies whether serious or in jest In the end I picked Tubular Bells, altered it with Audacity and submitted the result for approval. The comment: "Makes me feel like soiling my pants. Perfect!"
  24. Hi everyone, My husband needs to customise the ringtone so he can tell when his company calls him on the phone. He wants to pick something 'appropriate'. So far the candidates are the Empire March from Star Wars, the Mordor theme from LoTR and the Deep Scarlet soundtrack by Goblin. I wonder if you could suggest some more music that conveys an idea of 'pure evil'? Thank you in advance.
