  1. My apologies to agelos2005 because I was way out of line. Cone of shame is mine and it's not the first time for me. Great build and yes after my old age thumping my cane episode I checked the video. Well done and great work. Thanks for posting the photos of the build as well. Nice detailing. Again, my apologies.

    WIP 1/48 UH-1H During the late 80's and 90'S

    Same here. Incredibly well built and incredible turn around times. I wish I had his speed to complete.
  3. Absolutely. To each his own.
  4. Lol. No you are here to drive revenue and hits on your video on youtube. You might have the best scratch skills in the world and I'll still pass on your 'business model'. That's like these aftermarket dealers who only sell on Facebook which means you have to join that lame circus. I'll pass on them too. I'll do what I want and NOT click on your video for a 'like' and 'subscribe' uptick.
  5. Why are you even on here if you're using Arc to link to YouTube Subscriptions and likes? Because its too much work for you to link an image which leaves an archive here on Arc for others to maybe follow? Give me a break and like others I'll just pass on that. You either support this forum or don't and in your case it's apparently too way too much effort to ask to post images but hey making a youtube video, uploading and adding to your channel isnt. No thanks.

    Knocked out Panther

    That moment when you realize you've just responded to an archaic thread. 🙄 Sorry folks.

    Their mobility aids are NOT your spider killing tools!!!

    As my dear departed Onkel Willi replied to me upon returning home from hospital after my proclaiming how I proudly cleaning all the spiderwebs from his home, "Now whose going to to eat all the flies?" As for the cane snatcher, cover her apartment door in this

    Knocked out Panther

    Very nicely done Michael, nice Zim and painting technique. I think you captured the reference image very well. Unique display from all the other Panthers you see at shows. Just a small correction, this is not the Falaise Gap The Panther you depicted belonged to 1.Kompanie/SS-Panzer-Regiment 12 of the 12th SS-Panzer Division Hitlerjugend, a unit I've spent far too much of my life researching. Contrary to incorrect captions the Panther was knocked out by an anti-tank gun located in the Almir Garden near the Church on the South side of Bretteville-l'Orgueilleuse on 8 June 1944. This was during Kurt Meyer's failed night attack on Bretteville Norrey where he committed Max Wünsche's Panthers to an engagement without proper infantry support something Kurt Meyer would later mock the British for in his memoirs. Previous captions indicated the tank was flipped over after being knocked out by an Allied fighter bomber which isn't factual. The kocked out Panther was encumbering passage along the N13 road and pushed off into the field where it came to rest upside down. The N13 was not the wide road it is today. The Panther was then used for explosive penetration testing on the underside hull which was now exposed. The banner was placed there to warn others there was unexploded ordinance. The Lemanissier Shed is still there to this day. Bretteville-l'Orgueilleuse is 50.4km North-Northeast from Falaise . The Falaise Gap, also known as the Falaise Pocket. occurred from Aug 12, 1944 – Aug 21, 1944. The scene you modeled was June 8-9 1944. First time I've seen it actually modeled and again hats off to you. The same area today
  9. Great news and nice nod to US Navy Pilot Al Stnigl in Fickle-Filly on the box art.

    First female Viper demo commander out

    "Loss of confidence" in her ability to lead the team and 'mistakes she made' which is just Air Force speak for we know but wont lift the covers so you can view the corpse and identify the body. It could be anything and anything is speculative from an alcohol incident to extramarital affair or she just pissed in the wrong person's cornflakes like maybe the Wing Commander who relieved her. Or maybe, just maybe, she hit the Peter Principle and rose above her level of competence because I saw plenty of that myself in service. Since she deleted her social media and is in a 'black out' she's likely in career saving mode. Probably a good thing lightbulb since OSINT is a thing. I just hope she doesn't off herself over it. You mean the military was great 20 years ago? Probably right. My Fun Meter was fully pegged from 92 to 2000. Even when it wasnt.

    large scale us army helicopters

    Here's a 1:18 Apache that just sold for $118.50 plus $40 shipping. Boxed you'll pay over $200 unless you get 'a deal deal'. 1:24 is about as big as you get with scale helicopter model kits and it's limited to a few. Anyway good hunting.

    large scale us army helicopters

    They are the ones made formerly by 21st Century Toys - Ultimate Soldier line, bought out by BBI and Merit. They made the Huey, Kiowa, Blackhawk, Apache, AH-1W Super Cobra, and OH-6/MH-6. I have the Huey and was working on correcting the inaccuracies but never finished. I was given a 1:18 Kiowa when I left the program after 6 years. They are not kits outside of 'some assembly required. They are also pricey now but are a good base. Some folks have converted them to RC. Just Ebay search on 1:18 helicopters.

    500 Robertson MH-012 "T" Tank"

    John, not H-6s but I cant imagine their FLIR wasn't COTS or dissimilar to that seen in these MD500 series Law Enforcement assets from the early 80s up. All images were taken by Rainer G. Hanxleden and were scanned from his 5x7 photos. Click for larger 300 dpi I believe this monitor may actually be LLTV type.
