  1. I’m at the Cape and had breakfast with a group of NASA and SpaceX folks. That’s all I can say.
  2. Issue is possible contamination of payload sensors when booster retro-fires for landing return.
  3. Tweaklist to convert F-4E to F-4F Phantom

    Looks like an ALQ-119 ECM pod, not sure which variant.
  4. Eduard 1:72 MiG-21MF has arrived

    Let this be a lesson to all those who rushed to judgement. It is better to build than to criticize.
  5. Which 1/48 SU-35?

    Don't count your Tom-kittens before they hatch...
  6. Eduard 1:72 MiG-21MF has arrived

    Has anyone looked at the instructions to see if these parts were possibly mislabeled or numbered incorrectly?
  7. CM-020

    I don't know if Apollo 6 carried an actual sextant and optical site, but you can see how the engineers used temperature indicating paint around the sextant bezels to study the intensity of re-entry heating on this area. Also notice this area seems more recessed than on a Block II CM.
  8. CM-020

    The Block 1 CMs had the CM/SM umbilical under the hatch vs the larger umbilical on the opposite side on Block II. However there is also a hull penetration on the opposite side of this Block 1, in the same position and virtually identical configuration as the Block II umbilical connection. Confusing...

  10. CM-020

    lol my mancave isn’t that organized... :( I just returned from Fernbank Science Museum in Atlanta where I spent a few hours photographing the Apollo 6 CM (CM-020). Museum management was very supportive and agreed to remove the clear cover over the hatch to allow me to photograph the interior. The interior has been pretty well scavaged over the last 50 years but it was still neat to see. Speaking of 50 years, last week was the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 6 mission. My how time flies...
  11. CM-020

    teaser... .
  12. RAF Mildenhall photo thread

    P-3 w LSRS have been flying over my house for 10+ years. Smart enough to not ask questions.
  13. 1/48 Tamiya F-14D

    Thank goodness, those A pilots would be soooo out of place in a D model.
  14. What's up with Academy and Hasegawa?

    See this excellent article on hyperscale for this kit. http://www.hyperscale.com/2007/reviews/kits/x15a2accuracyreviewdr_1.htm .
  15. What's up with Academy and Hasegawa?

    Same problem plagued the horizontal stabs on the 1/32 X-15 kits from Special Hobby. Back in my mechanical drafting days this was called a true view vs a projected view. I assume the CAD world uses the same lingo.
