  1. If you’ve never seen a wet koala.....google it 😬. It’s the stuff of nightmares.
  2. Preferably right on top of an AFFF station or just not tied down, that’s how we roll. (Mic drop)
  3. Everything wrapped in one bag is essentially having everything wrapped in no bag, so what would really be the difference. I’m for the most part, completely happy with the condition of the kits I buy as they are. I can see having a separate wrapping for the clear parts, but as long as the box is sealed good, and no loose part can sneak out, what would really be the difference? I’m a tree hugger, but also a realist. There is no way we can ever live without plastic in the modern age, but there are countless ways to cut down its usage and abusage. I take reusable shopping bags with me everywhere, even mesh bags for vegetables. We put our trash can on the curb once for every four times we put our recycle bin out.
  4. I donated some money the Koala Hospital at Port Macquarie. My dogs have been notified, they are on the short list to get laid off if I can adopt a Koala in need, lol.
  5. I saw a video of two guys piling koalas into a hatch back, sad and funny at the same time. I donated to a koala hospital, I’m an animal person.
  6. I think it says something that, for the most part, everyone here agrees the movie was worth seeing. We all know this can be a tough crowd for movie reviews, so that should be worth something. TAKE THAT ROGER EBERT!
  7. Concur with everyone so far, the flying was pretty Star Warsy, but nothing that made me feel like I wasted my money, they stuck with the chain of events pretty well, I was even happy with small things, like the B-26’s getting some screen time, the Pearl Harbor layout looked pretty good as far as ships, even Joe Rocheforts dungeon looked pretty good, hell, even John Ford was In it. And nobody took their girl for a joy ride in a P-40, lol. I feel it was a Good Friday night.
  8. A lot of Joe Rocheforts efforts in the build up to Midway really started to take form in the aftermath of the intelligence failures leading up to Pearl Harbor, so I'm glad to hear they started the movie to allow for a sort of build up of events. I'm curious to see how well its done, your starting to give me hope. At a minimum, it'll be something fun for the wife and I do on a Friday since I actually have one off from work.
  9. The Kracken attacks and scatters boats everywhere!
  10. I think I'm going to cave and see it. You can never really expect a movie to be a historical lesson, lets face it, at that point it becomes a documentary and it ends the hopes for producers to achieve the next great blockbuster. But if a movie can spark interest in at least some people, and spark the desire to buy a book and learn more, that's a small win. I remember the first time I saw the good old Charlton Heston Midway, my friends and I spent weeks 'dogfighting' on our bikes, 35 years later I own more books than I have room in my house for. From the few previews I've seen, you can catch a quick glimpse of a ship and recognize it as a Yorktown class, or the Yamato, so there's some hope that it might be worth checking out. I first caught wind of this being made maybe two years ago, and I honestly had chills thinking how bad they could mess it up (Pearl Harbor).
  11. This sounds like it could be the beginnings of the best worst B movie ever made!
  12. Fortunately the Combined Fleet and Task Forces 16/17 weathered the storm, but Midway was rotated to an east/west facing, lol
  13. nope, that was a visitor in one of my clubs display cases at a museum.
  14. The ways your models can get damaged is just endless, fortunately mine were able to outmaneuver the Kraken!
  15. The VEN on the 400 and 402 is driven with oil. When the engine shuts down, the system depressurizes, and the ven actuators draw back in and close the nozzle. Usually when they stay open, there is either air in the system, something bound and got jammed, or someone did maintenance and didn’t close it when they finished which isn’t a big deal. When the motor cranks on the next start, the vpu while drive it closed, then it will reschedule.
