    You are, or were, here in the States? And you didn't drop by to say "hi"?

    Supercarrier going down

    The old battleship Texas has been a money pit. Outfitted with pumps to keep seawater at bay that came in through rust holes and sprung plates. Quite a bit of money was spent to ensure she could make the thirty mile trip from her museum spot to Galveston for hull repairs. She's already leaking again and plans are afoot to sink her in the slip like the Alabama.

    Fujimi 1/24 scale Porsche 917K

    I'm glad you posted a photo of the rear as I wanted to see those tail lights. Man, I can almost smell the hot brakes. Happily, I WILL be smelling hot brakes this Friday at my track event.

    AMT 1/25 Lola T8800 Done!

    Great start. As an aside, y'all know they liked to use high-mileage engines out of school buses? The long, hard used destressed the block iron crystal structures and made the blocks very tough to better withstand the boost.

    Air Force Flying Arsenal

    The link text and thread title lead me to believe I'd see the full-meal deal. That said, it's a loverly photo of the FIGHTER portion of the USAF arsenal.

    Bought this one today

    I suggest you look through the Props forum. Also, you should find a lot of information on Large Scale Planes board. Basically, it has shape issues but looks okay when built.

    Usually, only the spar was YZC on early D models. Later, even they weren't primed, everything was NMF.

    1/48 Tamiya F-14D

    How does that time compare to building Monogram or Hasegawa? Lovely grime patterns.
