  1. Revell now makes it in 1/72 and it can be built on its 8th tour or last tour as captured by the USN. Revell U505
  2. I tried to take some pics inside, but the lights kept flashing and flickering from the depth charges!
  3. For my birthday today, my wife and daughter accompanied me to the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. It is home to, I believe, the only surviving U-Boat outside of Germany. The new display is really cool and looks like a french U-boat pen. The tour was really cool. It was a "light and sound" guided tour with sound and light effects. Cool artifacts displayed around the outside of the sub. Highly recommended if you are ever in Chicago. And if you don't have time to see it, make time. It is definitely worth the effort. Not to mention the rest of the museum. Very high quality. Thought I'd share a few pics.
  4. Got mine in good order and fast. Thanks DONG!
  5. For sale Two 1/48 Tamiya Mustangs. Includes Complete Aires Set(Engine, cockpit, control surfaces, flaps, gun bays, wheel wells, wheels, EVERYTHING Aires makes in resin for the kit, The BIG set), Squadron vac canopy set, Eduard Color Interior and exterior PE, G-Factor Brass gear, and Warbird Decals for the Tuskegee Airmen. I started one gun bay and kinda botched it, but you may be able to salvage it. Everything else is unstarted. That's why I'm including two kits. Asking $65 plus shipping. Paypal, MO, Cash. Your choice. SOLD
  6. I wish McLaren still painted their cars orange.
  7. Are we talking an operational German carrier in 1941 or like 44, 45, 46, etc. I think time frame would make a difference.
  8. I'm in with Dragon's 1/35 M48A3 Mod. B. I think the search light and canvas mantlet cover needs to be on there, so..Legends set it is. Also all this other goodness from voyager in brass form. :D
  9. That was going to be part of today's project. Thanks for the heads up.
  10. Just wanted to report a successful trade between myself and kg4kpg. I got my well packed kits a couple days after the deal. Thanks kg4kpg!
  11. Would this work? Over 15.5 inches long and an almost 2 foot wingspan in 1/72 scale.
  12. Put the recommended 1/2oz of weight in the nose and glued the fuselage halves and wings together. Next will be the 4 TF-33s and landing gear while the main sections dry.
  13. (AP) "FAA records show the aircraft that crashed is owned by a Nevada company called Air USA. According to the company's website, it provides contract services to the U.S. military and defense contractors."
  14. Link to an article: Civilian plane crashes, killing Marine on ground in Arizona
  15. Good to know. Thanks for the info everyone! As Columbo would say, "Just one more thing..." Does anyone know where I can get my hands on the Wolfpack Design F-16I resin cockpit set? I have looked all the places I know and they are all sold out. I found the rest of the parts, including the Aires cockpit, but I would rather go with the one from WPD as recommended by longmc. Thanks again for all the help!
