  1. Hey all! Almost done with my 1:32 Academy Hornet and I'm thinking that next on the list will be my 1:48 Revell F-15C, but I have a couple questions about mixing and matching from the Revell Strike Eagle kit. I was wondering...will the exhaust nozzles from the Mudhen kit fit in this one? Got a spare set lying around and, IMHO, those look better than what came with the kit. And the intake covers in the Mudhen kit. Will those fit as well? Plus, does anybody know a way to modify it so I don't have to put that nose gear strut in prior to assembly? Thanks for the help :-)
  2. Bones is probably already up there rolling his eyes and getting annoyed with Spock. Rest in peace, Leonard Nimoy. You will be missed.
  3. I'm in. I've got a Hase Scooter in the stash.
  4. Not so much weird as it was a bit freaky (the first time it happened, anyway) but, X-acto blades and blood thinners. Need I say more? Doesn't bother me any more, I've been on Warfarin for over 10 years now, but the first couple of times it happened it was a bit freaky.
  5. The whole thing is awesome, but I really love that stainless steel/magnet idea for the instructions!
  6. I'll be at the August 1st show at the Forum in L.A. :D
  7. My sincerest condolences to Vince and his family. Very sorry for your loss.
  8. Oh, I remember this one quite well. Big story out here at Vandenberg once the payload finally arrived at the launch site after the...ahem..."incident."
  9. Probably a silly question, but does anyone know if that 1:48 B-1B will have some featherless exhausts included?
  10. My New Year's Resolution? SAVE MONEY! I've never been good at budgeting and saving cash. That ends now. I'm going to start putting some dough away. Other than that, I'm with Taiidan Tomcat :-)
  11. What an awesome job by Mario Catania on that F-14 flight deck diorama. Absolutely stunning work. LOVE IT!
  12. I did very well: - Trumpeter 1:48 T-38 (to put with my F-117 air show static display diorama) - Academy 1:72 F-35A -AV-8B Units of Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm -AV-8B Units of OEF -AV-8B Units of OIF I-VI -F-111/EF-111 Units in Combat -Pair of N-ike Kobe IX's -$100 N-ike gift card :D/>/>/> EDIT: Spam filter doesn't like the Swoosh brand, I guess...LOL
  13. Woo-hoo! I won! Wish I could have been in the chat room with you guys, bet it was a blast, but I had to work. Anyway, I choose this: 26) Fujimi 1/72 BAe Hawk Red Arrows THANK YOU SO MUCH :D/> :D/> :D/>
  14. Ah, what the heck. I'm in. Unfortunately I won't be able to be in the chat room because I'll be at work, though.
  15. I'll be watching as well. Plus, we have a classified NRO payload launch from here at Vandenberg on the 11th of December, too :)
  16. Clif...I am a railfan as well :-)
  17. <img class="bbc_emoticon" alt="" src="http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/public/style_emoticons/default/post1.gif">Glad to have you aboard. Enjoy! I saw an Aurora perform at an air show here in California about probably about 8 years ago. Sharp looking aircraft. When I was younger (about 5 or 6 years old), their P-3 American counterparts were constant visitors shooting touch-n-goes here at Vandenberg Air Force Base, and was actually the very aircraft I learned to ID by the MAD boom. Still see them here on a rare basis.
  18. Yeah, I saw the Blues bust out the banana suits for their first post-sequestration demo at El Centro. I like them. Very striking. Now that I see the T-Birds with white flight suits, I'm not sure I really care for them. They're kind of bland. I do like the red ones. That gray one, though. Wow...that one is just plain sweet. That one just screams "bada$$." Love it.
  19. Ah yes...one of my favorite questions. My musical tastes are pretty much all over the map, so when I'm building, I can be found listening to anything from Van Halen to 2Pac to Godsmack or Disturbed, with Depeche Mode, Pink, Incubus, OneRepublic and oh, I don't know, maybe Imagine Dragons or Green Day thrown in there, too. As you probably can tell, I don't really have a favorite genre of music.
  20. What is the brown badge that Gen. Schwarzkopf has hanging from the right pocket of his BDU's underneath his name tag?
  21. Whoa! They have white flight suits? Never seen those. SWEET! I have seen the red and blue ones, though.
