  1. There was a mention on their FB page over the weekend that whoever was financing the board has found themselves with other financial priorities and was looking for help to keep the site up. Seems like they found it.
  2. When GWH came out with their 1/48 TBD-1 Devastator kit they made the landing gear at full extension as if it was in flight. The SAC "upgrade" was a still incorrect copy of the kit gear. That told me everything I needed to know about SAC.
  3. I don't remember what comedian said they thought it was remarkable that for 50 cents someone would come to his house, pick up a piece of paper and carry it all the way across the country for him.
  4. They used to make straws out of paper as well. Never understood why some people are upset about ditching plastic ones.
  5. You might be missing something. Search for 1/48 Tamiya US infantry at rest. That's the current set with the Jeep in it. I just found 33 of them on ebay as low as $19.95 shipped.
  6. Well, aluminized lacquer is essentially lacquer gloss coat with aluminum powder mixed in it so it will start out glossy. It's the same 'silver' used in pre-war USN Yellow Wings era aircraft. OTOH, I polished the aluminum bits on my bike when I was putting it back together and they're quite a bit shinier than the silver painted frame...
  7. From the Better Late Than Never Dept. Done: Spent a pretty big chunk of this group build moving into a bigger apartment down the hall. Part of the deal I made to keep the rent reasonable was to do the repair work in here myself. How bad was it? One of the prior tenants peed on the floor at the foot of his bed... regularly... So it took a while. But once I got settled in I got back to this. Long story short, the side windows punched out again, this time from the front. The only way out of this one was to split the fuselage. But once it was opened up I glued them in hard. Beyond that, it was all downhill. I wanted to run aerial wires but the best pics on line are restorations and/or mods and there are a lot of variations. Rather than getting them wrong I just skipped them. Engines are Quickboost and both were short-shot on some way-one is missing a chunk of head (one pushrod cover instead of two on that one) and the other is missing the box on the front. Props are robbed from the Monogram B-17G kit to be correct for Sugar Puss. So that's it-she's done. And it doesn't take up a whole lot of space.
  8. I did not see anyone state the Japanese did NOT commit atrocities.
  9. I picked up a tube of Deluxe Materials 'Perfect Plastic Putty' at Who's Hobby House in Rapid City S.D. a few years ago and have been pretty happy with it.
  10. I remember the revamped panel lines on the Pro-Mod kit to be rather heavy handed.
  11. I'm not one to burn bridges but I nuked that one.
  12. 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.
