    Full Blown Model Geek
  1. Sorry, just throwing that info out there for everyone. You mentioned the media and there's a lot of outdated or bad info out there, even from the major new outlets. Sorry, but videos like that one above about the hospitals aren't helping anyone. Not criticizing you. It sounds like you are staying safe and maybe most importantly keeping everyone around you safe. That's what's most important.
  2. Don't believe the media. Their job is to create drama to sell papers/magazines/make you click the links for add revenue. For God sakes don't believe anything you read on social media (yes including places like this). Find the website for your state's dept of health services. They will have the most accurate numbers. Also John Hopkins University has been a good source for accurate data. For Texas, here you go: https://dshs.texas.gov/coronavirus/ https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/map.html https://hub.jhu.edu/2020/01/23/coronavirus-outbreak-mapping-tool-649-em1-art1-dtd-health/ Be very careful of Covid19 maps. Some are reported to install malware. The ones above from John's Hopkins are legit. This is very real people. Do not be mislead by the ignorant and the conspiracy theorists. Be safe, keep your social distance and stay home whenever possible.
  3. What's this bored you speak of? I'm finally catching up on some models I started but never finished. 🙂 Also started working out again, detailed car, cleaned house. Got a lot of other work done. Next week I'm starting on some major car maintenance I've been putting off.
  4. Here is another interesting interview (36 minutes) with Professor Kim Woo-joo from Korea University Guro Hospital. Korea had already dealt with SARS and MERS outbreaks, so has an interesting perspective on this pandemic. It's not in english but has subtitles.
  5. Here's a really good 17 minute interview with Dr. Anthony Fauci (Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases). Trever Noah of the Daily Show takes this very seriously and asks good questions which get very interesting answers.
  6. Very nice. I love the gull wings. The crash damage looks very convincing. Especially the shredded and torn skin
  7. Wow, that's coming along nicely. You've got some scratch building skills. 🙂
  8. That ADC scheme is nice. Looks like it has full stencils and BMF tanks too. That would make for an interesting model.
  9. Don't forget to research the "Silverplate" mods they gave to those 509th Composite Group birds to save weight (such as removing gun turrets, etc).
  10. One thing I like to do if I'm building more casually (OOB or what-if) is just spend more time reading stories on the subject. Building aircraft for example, read pilot's memoirs or even fiction (such as The Bridges at Toko-Ri, etc) instead of the Squadron Signal walkarounds and the deep dive technical publications. When building cars, you can focus on the peiple and history of race cars, sports cars or muscle cars. Lots of good books out there on these subjects. For example study Duntov, Mitchell or Shelby when building a Vette or Cobra.
  11. This is why What-Ifs are so fun: Just use imagination and what you have laying around.
  12. I have an FW-190 on deck, so I'm in the data collection phase. Here are some resources I found on the web: http://fw190.hobbyvista.com/ https://www.ipmsstockholm.org/magazine/2004/11/stuff_eng_fw190_01.htm https://www.ipmsstockholm.org/magazine/2004/08/stuff_eng_profile_fw190a4.htm http://thirdreichcolorpictures.blogspot.com/2010/01/focke-wulf-fw-190.html I also recently bought a used copy of this book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1612004555/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  13. That might very well be it. According to wikipedia, VMA-121 began combat operations from Chu Lai Air Base, South Vietnam in December, 1966. So the time frame is right
  14. Does anyone know what the 'rook' symbol on the splitter of this aircraft symbolizes? This aircraft is in both the Eduard F-4C "Good Evening Da Nang" kit and the Furball Aero Design 48-032 "Gull Gray USAF Phantoms" decal sheet. F-4C 64-0676, 12TH TACTICAL FIGHTER WING, CAM RANH AB, RVN 1966
  15. Nice sheets this month! Especially the Early Eagles set. Very unique. Do you have any plans to do a stencil set for the singe seat F-15 Alpha and Charley like you did with the F-15E? It looks like you could just print the bottom section of the CD48150 sheet. Not pressing, just curious
