    The future of group builds?

    A couple of quick comments about the group builds: One, they should be higher on the page. Often times I don't even scroll down that far. For me, my interest for the most part, stops at the aviation section. Maybe the aviation group builds should be in with the aviation section. Second, I agree with the quick start, like most modelers I assume, I get model ADD when I build. In 6 months something completely different has peeked my interest. Lastly, I may be way off on this one, admittedly I have only done a few, do we need moderators? Why can't we just self moderate the builds? Last time I checked we were all adults. If there are no prizes or anything along those lines, then why can't we do it?

    Top Gun 2 Production begins

    Here is how I picture it, Movie opens with "Maverick" still wearing aviators and his flight jacket. There is Chinese speak going on in the background as boxes are loaded onto a cargo plane (let's say C-130). He watches one of the boxes go by, and we get a glimpse of the contents, " Dog Toys Rubber Dog Sh**" . He gets in to the cockpit, where Merlin (Tim Robbins), is pre-flighting. They find out they are headed to California and near Miramar. They reminisce the day they waxed those bandits and nearly started WW3. Once they return to Miramar they find a bar named "Hard Deck" and find Jester working there. In there sits a navy pilot, playing with a toy F-14. Mavericks approaches the pilot, and asks where did you get that. "my dad gave it to me a prior to him dying in a crash". Maverick looks at his name badge, and the last name is Bradshaw (played by Ryan Gosling ). Suddenly it hits him...the rest of the movie writes itself....

    NAS Patuxent River Air Expo 2018 June 2 & 3rd

    Weather looks to be an issue as stated above. As far as I've seen, no other military demos. Given the crash of the Geico Skytyper, they probably wont be flying. I am not going because I don't feel like dealing with the traffic. They are expecting 60,000+, that's going to make the area around Pax a clusterf**k.

    Kitty Hawk 1/32 T-28C "Warbird"

    A few updates, progress is slow. Then engine looks good once it's painted and assembled. Finished up the accessory section. Added some wiring and hoses to make it look "busier" thanks for looking Go Cubs!
  9. Friends that work at Gulfstream are saying that it looks like it lost power rolled over and down.

    Small update today. Been working on the engine and accessory section, still need to add some hoses to the accessory section I have discovered Tamiya's panel line Accent, stuff works great.

    Kitty Hawk 1/32 T-28C "Warbird"

    Gents- After my wife decided I needed to get back in to building (or dorking as she likes to call it), we went to Hobby Town. After picking up the Kitty Hawk T-28C, she insisted I buy it. I have been out of the hobby for more than a year. We downsized apartments and I got rid of most of my supplies. Our apartment does a have computer nook, which she has allowed me to set up a new "workshop". However, I can't airbrush, so most things will be hand painted. I decided to do this as a restored Warbird T-28, so I'm not striving for 100% authenticity, this works cause the decals are for Warbirds. Just a few pics to get started. Here is the cockpit mostly assembled. I did use the decals for the instrument panels. They look great, but I wish they would have left them with a clear background, allowing us to match the grey a lot closer. The seat belts are the kit parts but I used bandage tape for the fabric. It works pretty well. Sorry for the quality of the pics, they are taken with my phone. You'll notice that the front seat has no belts, I am planning on placing a pilot in there.
