  1. Black Friday Disappointment

    The only time I shop at Squadron anymore is when they have their books on sale for dirt cheap. But that is only about 3 times a year.
  2. Black Friday Disappointment

    Hey I had to work three whole days. Ok maybe two and a half lol
  3. Star Trek: Discovery

    I watched it last night. It was just ok. I felt like the acting was a bit wooden.I won't be buying into the online streaming service though. I will end up finding it free on a website that I use from time to time. I can't get another streaming service when I already have Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and HBO.
  4. Eclipse Chasers?

    I live in Portland Oregon so I just watched it from my yard. That is the Erickson Air Collection in Madras. It is a very nice museum, most everything they have flies as well. The B-17 is currently out touring at the moment though.
  5. 1/48 B-25J 8 gun nose

    Shows tend to be a good place to check. Picked one up last year for 15 bucks at a show.
  6. Amelia Earhart Evidence Lost

    I've been seeing lots of evidence that points to that photo not having anything to do with her at all. From what I have read, the picture isn't newly "discovered". It has been known about for a few years. Also if they were taken prisoner, why aren't there any Japanese soldiers in the photo at all. Also the females hair appears to be longer then other pictures of her taken during her flight. The male that is supposed to be her navigator has the same complexion as the islanders in the picture. It also looks like he has his hair parted on the opposite side that Fred Noonan did. Lots of little things point to it being just a random picture and not her at all.
  7. Hasegawa New Releases

    Of course Hasegawa is still very relevant. If you build 1/48 Japanese planes, Hasegawa is one of the few manufactures of them besides Tamiya and Fine Molds. Do I get tired of the same repops with new decals. Very much so. But I also tend to wait until Tower Hobbies has them on sale and pick them up for next to nothing.
  8. 1/48 Ki-67 "Peggy"

    I would be all over a nice 1/48 Ki-67 as well as a Ki-21
  9. 1/48 C-46

    Don't worry about him. That is just Gaston Marty for you. He has been booted from just about every forum I've been on. He tends to always use a different name on each one for some reason.
  10. Hal Marshman, Sr

    I tend to try and not read his reviews. Funny thing is I just googled him and he did a bunch of writing for softcore porn tv movies. So you know what kind of guy he is lol.
  11. Hal Marshman, Sr

    Is he the guy that writes those long winded reviews on Modelingmadness?
  12. Backyard visitors

    Oh it was an amazing experience. Used to see lots of Bald Eagles as well. The best one was the time we had a baby elk that had wandered away from its mother come within 20 feet of us. He stood there for about 5 minutes trying to figure out what we were.
  13. Backyard visitors

    Very awesome pictures. I used to see Black Bears from time to time when I was working for the Forest Service. But now all I see are coyotes and rabbits.
  14. It depends on which version you want to build. If you want to build an A6M5/A6M5A or A6M3 type 22 choose Tamiya. But for any of the other versions go with Hasegawa.
