  1. It has changed since I posted the link. It definitely said a US serviceman was on the jet. While any loss of life is tragic it is possible the initial reports were wrong.

    How is Tyndall AFB

    Mig-28s. Never seen one this close before.
  3. USAFE press release confirms a US service member was in the Flanker. https://www.usafe.af.mil/News/Press-Releases/Article/1663471/su-27ub-fighter-aircraft-crashes-at-clear-sky-2018-update/

    First Man Movie!

    I just saw it in IMAX at a matinee. My thoughts: 1. Holy crap. $18 for a matinee??? 2. There were maybe 15 people in a theater that probably holds 500 3. I’m afraid being such a space buff/geek kinda ruined it for me. Hard to overlook many of the dramatizations of the “space” scenes. 4. Acting was superb. 5. Was Buzz really that big of a jerk? He is portrayed as incredibly insensitive and blunt. 6. Acting was superb. 7. Not sure what I thought of the ending. No spoilers...

    How is Tyndall AFB

    Ok now I’m really concerned... CLIMATE CHANGE COULD CAUSE 'DRAMATIC' BEER SHORTAGE AND PRICE HIKES https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.newsweek.com/climate-change-could-cause-global-beer-shortages-and-price-hikes-1170361%3famp=1 I read it on the interwebs so it must be true.

    F-4E 66-0371 "Arizona Chicken"

    66-0371 shot down 10 Feb 1972 67-0371 went to Egytian AF
  11. For the descent stage I colored different foils with yellow and orange Sharpie permanent markers. For the ascent stage I used black construction paper and a yogurt foil that matched the off white color, cut to fit each panel. I don’t have links to any pics at the moment.

    Wow, Jake and I shot the QF-16s in that hangar a couple of years ago.

    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    While I agree any modeler would prefer a Very Accurate Model, I seriously doubt that will be achieved by a bunch of ARC Tomcat fanboys scouring the internet for photos and drawings and here-say that might prove or disprove someone's otherwise uninformed opinion and ranting about Every Little Detail, real or imagined, on an unreleased kit. The US Navy Tomcats were retired twelve years ago, so unless you're in Iran, no one has seen one fly in well over a decade. While there are several in museums, I would venture some of the "shape experts" in this thread have never even laid eyes on a 1:1 scale Grumman F-14. Yes, there are folks here with real experience with this jet - but you don't see them judging and criticizing AMK in this thread. Me? I haven't seen or touched a real F-14 since... let me see... last Tuesday I think it was. BuNo 160889 This thread specifically, and the many threads like it in this subforum, have made visiting here almost unbearable. ARC should change its name to Armchair Ranters and Criticizers. If some of you put as much thought and effort into choosing a spouse (a much more serious task) as you do into nit-picking and spouting jpeg-based opinions about unreleased, unseen, and untouched kits... well, you must be very lonely. When do you ever find time to actually build anything? And yes, I realize the irony of ranting and criticizing about people ranting and criticizing. It's contagious I guess. So sad.....
