    President George H.W. Bush Passed Away

    The way I remember Bush Forty One, is that he was a people person. Seemed to just love people from all walks in life. His wife was the same way, and you gotta respect that! Just one hell of a likeable guy. He will be missed! Gary

    What makes a good/bad fitting model?

    Think about it

    What makes a good/bad fitting model?

    Radu did the design work, so it's top of the line. Revell kept some pieces fitting a little on the right side. He did a response on this on here or maybe LSP, and if you follow his instructions; everything goes together we'll. Their FW190's in 1/32 are in my opinion the best out there. Never got a chance to start the AR196 as it was stolen, but hear nothing but good things about it. Sometime in January, I hope to start their 1/48 Tornado. Just taping parts together, it looks good. Never was much a Revell fan till I built their 1/72 scale JU88. Made the Hasegawa look like junk! Gary

    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    I think it's ironic that anybody would make a post like that! Not everybody hates AMK, and it's probably the half dozen that hijacked this thread.

    I hear this excuse all the time, but usually write the whining and crying off to other things.

    I think it has become disruptive.

    Best Fitting 1/48 Scale Spit, P51-D, FW-190

    I used to work in a print shop before Uncle Sam put me in indentured servitude. Plus I own about fifty sheets from Cartograph.. I know BS when I see BS! Every sheet I own, but one has the logo printed on it. Perhaps they are such low quality that they are ashamed to put their logo on it?

    Best Fitting 1/48 Scale Spit, P51-D, FW-190

    You know I have never seen a Cartograph sheet without their logo on it. Quality wise, as I've said before look crude! As in dot matrix printer.

    You really don't want to know what I think, as it might no be pretty.
  13. That power plant has been on the dynos since 1953, or even later 1952. I'd suspect that by now it's almost 100% debugged. The airframe has been around since 1954, with many upgrades. It should be pretty much fool proof by now! I still remember my first ride in one like it was yesterday. I sat in the canvas seat thinking we're going down at any moment from all the noise alone! When we landed in Chu Lai, I kissed the ground! Six weeks later I was headed up to Phu Bai, and I had a bad feeling from the get go. We landed, and that shot the plane to pieces. Holes big enough to put you fist thru, and there must have been twenty. Shorts were CBL'd, and we actually drug the ramp on the way out! Flew out to sea, and back home with our tails tween our legs! That plane is built like a tank.

    Exploding Nose Weights??

    Yes it's became a collector's item if in the original issue box. I pulled the bullets for the cases.
