  1. I throw them away. Just clutter and for me, don't really mean anything after the show.
  2. I tend to do civil subjects (planes, cars, rockets and ships) Favorite scales 1/24 to 1/48 Favorite manufacturer Lindberg (really)
  3. Okay, all in 1/24 scale (if I'm gonna pay $120-200.00 for it, it's gotta be BIG) (Re-pop) 172 Cessna Skyhawk 150 Cessna Beech 18 PZL Wilga AG Truck, AG Cat, Pawnee Thassit.
  4. Durham's can be tricky stuff. Mix it till it's just thicker than pancake batter. I've used polymer clay as positive mold material with good success too.
  5. Just a quick note to say thank you for this excellent site. It is a daily Must-Stop for me and I get great enjoyment here. Be Well. Chip Johnson
  6. I'm thinking something 50's.. Bright yellow w/silver or gunmetal boots and gloves? Buster Crabbe was great in the serial! On the other hand, the box art is true to Revell..
  7. Since a lot of us here have this in common.. Back in 1965, as a 8 year old, I built the coolest model to grace my bedroom shelf. Revells Flash Gordon! Years later Mom did away with all my built stuff one day -sound familiar? Onward, I searched for a repop of that kit for three decades, giving up finally a few years ago. 50 years with no release? -Did the molds perish in That Train Wreck? Arrgh. Long story short Atlantis repopped Flash .. TWO YEARS AGO! Arrrrrrgh. Amazon is my friend. 43.00 with tax and I get it tomorrow. Even with my bad eyes ill be assembling Flash tomorrow night. Chip
  8. Nerds Rule The World! Er, ahem..
  9. My mistake Walt. That was the guy.
  10. Francois Verlinden scratched a G? way back when. Fine Scale Modeler had a photo of him holding the beast at port arms.. Yeah, you might need a bigger bench.. Belchers Bits sells nukes..
  11. Yeah. This Topol missile in 1/72 has 309 parts! Its pretty neat though.
  12. ..oops, Revell Topol now 26.99.. Yep, it pays to bookmark! Sometimes weeks will pass before the price drops or rises. That Topol kit started over 40.00 on Amazon. Chip (I got one at 20)
  13. I had the bittersweet experience of seeing Super Corsair crash in Phoenix. The good news was Steve got out and cought a good canopy, he was hurt but survived. Super Corsair spun in and exploded. I am going out on a limb and saying Civilised is on the up and up. I will put my money on a Super Corsair from him. Chip
  14. I'm sitting on a massive stash, waiting for eye surgery to let me see closeup in one eye again. I need to build so it's been cheap Lindberg kits for88 the last year. Funny thing is, I get such a kick doing these 48 scale Grumman Gooses and Heller 48 AS350 Helis! Simple is good, and complex will be good when I get my sight back (knock wood)..
