  1. New Airfix B-26

    Umm..we did. Hasegawa released both the B-26B/C and F/G ten years ago. Both are excellent kits. SN
  2. Last flight of the Vulcan

    Caught it last week. I'm not even a jet guy, and I thought it was awseome! 😎 SN
  3. HeritageCon coming up March 25th.

    Yep. I'll just have to be on the lookout for wandering trucks. 😄
  4. HeritageCon coming up March 25th.

    My wife and I are planning to be there. It's been about five years since we last visited the Great White North. SN
  5. Decal Instructions Needed - Boeing 247

    Stand down..a gentleman over on Hyperscale was able to hook me up. Thanks for looking! SN
  6. Decal Instructions Needed - Boeing 247

    Yep, that's about the best I've been able to come up with as well. SN
  7. USS Lexington found in Coral Sea

    I wish they'd find Amelia's Electra, just to shut up that huckster at TIGHAR. SN
  8. Hi All, This weekend at a model show I happened to snag an old Microscale Decals sheet for the Williams Brothers 1/72 Boeing 247. The problem is, the sheet was loose in a bin of miscellaneous old decals, with no instruction sheet. I've looked around online, but haven't been able to turn up anything (other than pictures of the sheet itself.) Would anyone out there have Microscale Decals #44-7, and be nice enough to scan the instruction sheet for me? Thanks! Steve
  9. New Tool Airfix B-25C/D In 2017

    I think the real turret has a clear sighting window..that me be why they molded the whole thing clear. SN
  10. What is the correct interior green for a P-47D?

    And while the cockpit of all P-47Ds (Razorbacks and Bubbletops) was Dull Dark Green, the wheel wells were Zinc Chromate Yellow. The old Testor's square-bottle #1184 is a good match, and easily available. Also, the landing gear struts were usually Olive Drab, rather than aluminum. SN
  11. The Last Jedi (Spoilers)

    So, here's the thing..does the dreadnought have it's own exterior gravity field? The idea of "dropping" bombs in space seemed completely ludicrous to me. I was also a bit baffled by the woman lying in the bomb bay heroically releasing said bombs, despite the fact that the doors were open to the hard vacuum outside and she wasn't wearing so much as an oxygen mask. I supposed it could be argued that there was a forcefield holding the air in, but there wasn't any evidence of that when the bombs dropped. SW has always played fast an loose with the laws of science..I regard it as closer to fantasy than sci-fi, and that's OK. But that sequence was a bit much for me to swallow. Plus, since we see that a ship traveling at lightspeed can do catastrophic damage to a ship the size of Snoke's (and obliterate the escorts) why has no one in the SW universe ever thought of just sticking a hyperdrive on a missile? I wouldn't even need a warhead..a kinetic penetrator with a mass of a thousand tonnes or so should be able to vaporize a star destroyer. I'm sure these questions are likely answered by the expanded universe stuff, but I'm enough of a geek to wade through all of that. I enjoyed the movie overall, but I still think the top three SW films are Empire, New Hope, and Rogue One. SN
  12. I've got hundreds (if not thousands) of pics on my Android phone..seems to download just fine. The trick is finding which folder they're in.
  13. I always use Windows Explorer, and treat the phone as another drive. Just grab the pic from the folder and drag them into a folder on the deskop. Rather a caveman approach I suppose, but it works for me. SN
  14. Revell 1/48 B-17G

    It'll always be a Monogram kit to me. SN
  15. Star Trek: Discovery

    I thought it was OK, but like others here I didn't think it was worth paying to see more. I'm a bit baffled..does this show take place in the original Trek universe or the Abrams reboot timeline? For a show that takes place a decade before TOS, the tech is vastly more advanced. I realize today's audiences aren't gonna put up with 60s-vintage low-budget sets and effects, but as mentioned above there was no effort at all to make this show appear remotely connected to the others. I'm not sure what's up with the complaints about "social justice." Did anybody watch the original series? That broke all kinds of 60s gender and race barriers, and tackled all manner of then-current social issues. SN
