  1. I do but in Canada could take a few weeks to get there . And have the early production hornet from monogram .
  2. Well all I can a real surprise and a good idea, as great as people like Hasegawa , their biggest short coming was not giving complete details a weapons, . But unlike most of their kits I felt that the F104 was lacking in providing under wing stores, extra fuel tanks like most of their other kits. I remember the first release and the were clear parts for the fuselage lights but no instructions as to where or how to install. So to me this was a sub standard kit for Hasegawa. This new Kinetic kit will be welcome to me because their track record with all of the kits is to provide enough p
  3. Kursad looking forward when you do release the revised 48th sheet.
  4. The older acrylics like poly s and gunze suffered from being subject to extreme temperatures, just some stayed in liquid form but would perform no so well , like not drying, going lumpy when mixed with thinner. And become my like jelly. Its why I don't think mail order is best for ordering paint .especially if it is allowed on aircraft, not all cargo holds are pressurised.
  5. New York and California ANG
  6. I don't think we need to tax ICE vehicles to get people to buy EVs, once the kings of mass production get started and putting E.Vs into more homes for same price as current vehicles the public will buy them or have not choice. But I do feel they are holding back because of several reasons , but the biggest is the power infrastructure needs to be updated other wise we will be in the dark because of the added demand. Power companies are already working on the solution , I am sure the big auto makers can out produce before updates are completed , like said before give it 20years and we will be ab
  7. 1 I would have to say that governments are not going to give up revenue recieved from fossil fuel taxes. Most carbon taxes probably do not got to any climate changing improvements like it should, not where I live anyway. 2 we need to upgrade our electricity infrastructure to hand the increased demand on it when the population moves to EVs of all types, that may take years to complete. And you will be paying higher for electricity. One of the things if you look at how much power is produced by current power types we use, like coal plants, gas plants, hydro plants, wind power and solar. C
  8. Your response to 1 I was not describing all plug in hybrids, the diesel-electric generates is power with a diesel and powers the traction motors at the wheel , just like a Tesla, but the is no battery to store the electric charge to be recharged. Reply to 2 can your Tesla sit in -20 For a week and recharge properly? Many ICE engines don't start because of to reason poor maintainence tune ups and clean oil and batteries insuffiently maintained. On a long distance trip 20% loss of charge can be significant but reading from owners who live up here and they were have a loss of 40% as we have
  9. As to the diesel electric engine combo GM has known about it since they owned EMD electric motive division why haven't they applied to autos and trucks.? Tesla during winters where I live there is definite lose of battery due to extreme cold , we get -20c or -4f but also get -30c/-22f . With all lights working, fans and heat on I have read that Tesla battery charge does not last as long. Add any wind to that equation cools almost anything quicker including ICE engines Hydrogen: one of the most poisonous gases Amonia when burnt makes H2O and nitrogen ,but not safe in a car or truck
  10. Hybrid cars like Toyota's Prius and new Corolas, Nissan's Rogue and Volvo's XC60 (among others) do exactly that. But eletric engines are being seen as the future of the car industry, while hybrid cars are mere shortcuts
  11. The difference between auto hybrids and diesel electric locomotive it the ICE actually share the drive train with the electric motor via a transmission. A diesel electric locomotive , the diesel powers the generator that put power to the traction motor. An EMD SD40 has about 3600hp but max rpm is less than 3000rpm , the locomotive weighs in at 300000 lbs and pull much more weight. Locomotives dont have a storage battery. So a guess would be that a car the size of a Corolla would have 50hp the rpm not exceeding 3000rpm to drive just the generator and power the traction motor it would be possib
  12. That sounds awesome Kursad , you could easily make a full sheet with early hornets in the early low vis scheme if there is interest, there were at least 7 units to fly that scheme before the change .
  13. Do you need a scanned copy of the monogram 1/48 F18 prototype or second release A18 kit decals for reference ? I can email them to you.
  14. Are you going to do any eurfighters?
