  1. I remember the revamped panel lines on the Pro-Mod kit to be rather heavy handed.
  2. I'm not one to burn bridges but I nuked that one.
  3. The early G did not have the nose cheek guns. They were deleted because it was believed the chin turret would be sufficient. It didn't take long for them to come back.
  4. It was for a minute, but it's back.
  5. I'll start with one that will mesh with my personal WWI Theme Build-Eduard vs. DML Fokker Dr.I, in 1/48: I've already built the DML kit in Josef Jacobs markings so there'll be no surprises there. It was a sweetheart of a build. Not sure yet what I'll go with for markings on that kit but the Eduard kit will be the Richthofen plane before the markings change, as the iron crosses just looked cooler You'll note the Weekend Edition F.I peeking out of the bottom of the pile. I'll be building that one at the same time but it won't be part of this group build-these are all the Fokker triplanes in the stash so I'm building them all at once. That one will be the last ride of Werner Voss, a build I've wanted to do and fortunately it's one of the decal options. Ken
  6. I'm planning to start with 1/48 Eduard vs. DML Fokker Dr.Is because I'm still up to my neck in a personal WWI theme build which, coincidentally enough is stalled on a Testors/Hawk vs. Eduard Nieuport 17 build. I had considered Monogram vs. GWH TBD-1 Devastators but the GWH kit has already won that. Also in the stash is Lindberg box scale vs. Monogram 1/48 He. 111s but I'd like to save the Lindberg kit for an oldies style group build. I also have 1/25 AMT vs. Revell 1957 Chevys, 1/48 Airfix vs. Classic Airframes B.P. Defiants, and 1/48 Monogram vs. Hasegawa F-14 Tomcats-one I would consider but I'm also in the midst of rigging Revell's 1/96 USS Constitution and I'm pretty sure that'll use up my ration of patience for the rest of the year...
  7. Fun fact: There are currently NO group builds running 😶
  8. I'll likely get one. If they come out with an F, I'll be homeless...
  9. One year? I'm in! Been waiting for the run time on a group build to be extended beyond 6 months for a loooooooong time. Now if we could just get some of them pinned... Been thinking about a side-by-side build of DML's and Eduard's Fokker Triplane and I might just throw in Classic Airframes' and Airfix's B.P. Defiant.
  10. And yet the question remains. Does the USN really let pilots fly fighters off carrier decks for 35 years?
  11. Should I be sold on a 57 year old Navy fighter pilot?
  12. Nickname for the tail gun position as modified at the Cheyenne modification center-'cause it looks a bit like a pumpkin.
  13. Yup, that's her. The 381st got a few of those very early Gs. All the ones I've seen photos of share the same F style dorsal turret.
  14. Details here: https://www.forbes.com/sites/tonymarks/2018/06/29/u-s-supreme-court-reverses-long-standing-law-on-collection-of-sales-taxes/#71489f5d58df
