    1/48 X-29 from Freedom model F-20

    There was an article in Fine Scale Modeler many years ago (mid 80s) about kitbashing and scratchbuilding an X-29 in 1/48, maybe someone has a copy or a link? edit: May 1986 issue, here’s one on evilBay https://www.ebay.com/itm/Fine-Scale-Modeler-May-86-Israel-Merkava-Grumman-X-29-Spacecraft-Starship-/400265528960

    1/144 747 SCA and Shuttle

    Definitely Revell. The Dragon kit has “cool” transparent cutaway sections and I believe it is basically a pre-painted snap-together kit. It is riddled with inaccuracies though. The Revell kit is your typical styrene kit requiring glue and paint but it is far more accurate.

    SpaceX - Falcon Heavy

    When I was in college (back in the 70s) we had to solve what’s called the “inverted pendulum” control problem using analog “computing” circuits to balance a simple yardstick. We only had to solve the problem in one axis, along a sliding rail. This Space-X feat involves solving the problem in 3 axes while also solving the challenge of vertical velocity and precision guidance AND the variable mass of the “yardstick”. As an engineer I am impressed. Here’s a video of an inverted pendulum demonstration involving more computing power than I dared dream of 40+ years ago.

    Observations of Vietnam era A-7E features and loadouts

    It’s my understanding the primary difference between a C and an E is just the engine. When the Navy decided to build the E model the Spey TF-41-2 wasn’t ready. So the first 67 E models retained the P&W TF-30 and were redesignated C models. When the TF-41 became available subsequent airframes were designated E models.

    Both WD40 and Goo Gone contain petroleum distillates but Goo Gone makes a formula specifically for removing sticky adhesives.
