    ES-3A from VQ-5 on the ramp at NAS Whidbey Island July 1997. Cheers Bill Inglee
  2. RCAF CH-148 Cyclone was in town yesterday for our local airshow.
  3. Except the Canadians add a wrinkle on the outside: Cheers Bill Inglee
  4. My first order from Lucky Model using the new system of low-cost shipping arrived today on the West Coast of Canada. At the early end of the projected timeline. All present and correct in a pristine box. Congratulations Raymond. Bill Inglee
  5. Hi, Amazon Canada has "A History of the Mediterranean Air War Vol. 3" on sale today as a Kindle book for $1.99. Looks like you can also get it on Amazon.com for $1.54 US. Great book and I was happy to see Vol 3 at such a good price. https://www.amazon.com/History-Mediterranean-Air-War-1940-1945/dp/B01K90LH4S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1538261691&sr=8-1&keywords=A+History+of+the+Mediterranean+Air+War%2C+1940-1945%3A+Volume+3%3A+Tunisia+and+the+end+in+Africa%2C+November+1942+-+May+1943 Cheers Bill Inglee
  6. Hi, I used to attend the Friday daytime shows for their smaller crowds. They were my favourites. I attended one Friday evening show for work and was disappointed. From my point of view it wasn't a full show. The light can be nice for some photographs, but otherwise I found it fell short of my expectations. It reminded me of a carnival rather than an airshow -- if that makes sense. Cheers Bill Inglee
  7. I use one of these simple punches with 5 thou plastic to generate small discs as my first go-to. Putty is a last resort. Some kits end up looking like they have freckles. The punch sizes come close to most ejector-pin sizes. Cheers Bill Inglee http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/page.aspx?p=51577&cat=1,43456
  8. MMP sprays nicely and levels out well if you get heavy handed -- ask me how I know. Dried to a flat finish over Stynylrez primer. Cheers Bill Inglee
  9. I just used some Mission Models Paint over black Stynylrez on a DML Panzer IVH. No issues. I let the Stynylrez cure for several days which may be overkill. MMP is great, no issues and easy cleanup.
  10. Intakes from F-14A VF-51 Modex 112 BuNo. (?) 161284 July 1993 NAS Whidbey Island. Cheers Bill inglee
  11. I bought an Iwata Power Jet Pro as my 'retirement' compressor three years ago. I use it with an Iwata HP-CS and an Iwata Revolution. The tank helps even out the airflow for me. I waited for a deal at one of our local art stores and jumped on it at a sale price. It's a fine unit. Cheers Bill Inglee
  12. This came up on the Aviationist blog today. https://theaviationist.com/?p=42403 Sea Vixen emergency landing at Yeovilton. Pilot did one heck of a job, but damage is bad. Bill Inglee
  13. Opsec? Go to Combat Camera and type Libya in the photo search field. Tons of pics. http://www.combatcamera.forces.gc.ca/netpub/server.np?find&catalog=photos&template=detail_eng.np&field=itemid&op=matches&value=51684&site=combatcamera Cheers Bill Inglee
