  1. Lost a National Treasure.

    Some may remember but a good friend of mine's grandfather is a survivor of the USS Indianapolis disaster. Tragically he passed away early this morning. I'm not certain how many Indy survivors there are but there can't be that many left. I feel for his family and I'm honored to have known of him. I never actually met him but have been good friends with his grandson and have held his great granddaughter who shares his name. Albert Oliver Morris. A great American hero.
  2. Giving up beer for a month

    I gave up beer for a month to see if it affected my weight. I'm about 200lbs and should be maybe 175 at most. I love beer and everyone calls me a beer snob. I'll drink a 12 pack a week easily. Anyway getting off beer for the month made me gain weight. So back to beer I went. I have noticed that if I drink too much beer I do get rather cranky. Liquor usually makes me silly.
  3. Cleveland, Ohio, any good model shops?

    MAPS is definitely worth a visit. They've grown immensely in the last 15 years or so. Even have their own decommissioned F-14 that was flown in and then disassembled. Up by the airport theres the 100th bomb group restaurant. Ok food, kind of pricey, but the decor is neat. Most of the the local shops have been closing lately. I'm not even real sure what's around anymore. I don't think anything very close to downtown Cleveland. Marvin20 is your guy for local shops though. Theres also a nice museum in Port Clinton about an hour and a half west of Cleveland on the lake. If you've got a car might be worth the drive. I forget what it's called though.
  4. End of the line.

    Unfortunately the GB has come to an end. I must apologize for my total lack of involvement. I've just not been much into modeling in the last year and a half. It's hard to get motivated to build anything. Even sold off a large chunk of my stash. Congrats to to those who completed builds and to those with builds in progress keep it up. Everyone wants to see the completed works. Hope to be more active in the future. Nice work. Kris
  5. 1/48 Revell B-17G

    Can't wait to see more. Always wanted to build this one. Keep it up and finish it.
  6. 200th Scale B-52H by Dragon

    Some good work here. Can't wait to see it in the test colors. Keep it up even though the GB is finished.
  7. Lancaster Mk I "S" for Sugar.

    Some great work on this. Just because the GB is over doesn't mean you have to stop. Can't wait to see it finished.

  9. VH day

    Wow that's awesome nice job Pete!
  10. Heavies!

    Unfortunately no there's other GBs that need to get processed. Doesn't mean you need to stop your build though. Keep it up and get it finished.

    Great looking kit.
  12. Anything to do in Atlanta

    Almost forgot. The national Infantry Museum is at Ft Benning which is about 2 hours southwest of Atlanta. I've never been a huge army guy but when we visited the museum when our son graduated from basic it was truly an awesome museum.
  13. Anything to do in Atlanta

    Seconded Warner Robbins if you have a rental car. It's about 2-3 hours from Atlanta depending on what part of Atlanta you're staying. Excellent museum and free since it's a national Air Force museum. Believe here's some cool aquarium in downtown Atlanta but I've always avoided downtown. (Family lives about 45 minutes west of downtown) Also if you get a free weekend or something Savannah is about 4-5 hours away and they have the 8th AF museum. Not free but also a very nice museum. Also Savannah is supposed to be real nice. Wasn't our cup of tea when we were there with our kids.
  14. Lowly two for 2016

    Thanks guys!
  15. Lowly two for 2016

    Bought a new car and discovered a new money pit hobby so I only built two last year. 1/48 Eduard Spitfire MkIX (or VIII I can't remember) added an additional pe set then what came in the box and chose a scheme from the kit. Really nice build. see more in the Spitfire GB. Finally we have a 1/350 Revell U-boat Type VIIc. Got it in my club's "build the same kit" contest. Added a small pe set that replaced the thick plastic railings. Really a. Ice kit and very easy. Start to finish took me 9 days. Then it won our contest! I've already got one done for 2017 (see ship's display case) although I started it in 2015. Maybe it'll be a better year? Kris
