  1. Travis, PM inbound. Thanks! Best Regards, Ken Bailey (SonyKen)
  2. Darren, I don't remember the Marine Skyhawk but I do remember the Revell/Monogram Dale Earnhardt two car combo that had one Chevrolet and one Pontiac in it where the box art had the word "Pontiac" misspelled. At the time, I didn't have the combo in my collection but the guy I bought this set from told me that the combo was more valuable because of the misspelling. I told him that I was a builder, not a collector and I pretty much forced him to reduce his price for the set because I wasn't going to pay his higher price just for the sake of the misspelling. Best Regards, Ken Bailey (SonyKen)
  3. Habu, The files on the DVD are in PDF format but when I use the file search and try and open one of them, I get an error message. The error message is XXXX.PDF file is protected and the menu bar is asking for a Document Open Password. Sure I know these files are copyright protected but since I have every issue of the magazine and I did purchase the DVD from the publisher, don't I have the right to copy any portion of any of these magazines for my own personal use? This is just as long as I don't use these copies in a way that may violate the copyright of said publisher. I really needs these copies. Thanks for all the help!! Best Regards, Ken Bailey (SonyKen)
  4. Nope, sorry. The only computers that I have are Windows based PC compatibles. Thanks Anyway!! Best Regards, Ken Bailey (SonyKen)
  5. All, This is a post that I made to the Finescale Modeler Magazine FB page about 2 months ago and I never received an answer. So I decided to post it here to see if any one here can help me with this. "I have every issue of FSM that was ever published and I have a digital copy of the magazine on DVD question. It is such a hassel to find an article that I am interested in my stash and then try to take that article to the copier to print out a "working" copy. Lets say I want to make a working copy of the article to have a quick reference at the bench or to have a "grocery list" to take to the hobby shop or for an online order. On the digital DVD's of the magazine, once an article is found in the archive on the DVD, can that article be printed out for my own personal use?" I hope someone on this forum can tell me how it is done, if it is possible. Thanks, folks! Best Regards, Ken Bailey (SonyKen)
  6. All, I get all of my sanding sticks and pads at Sally Beauty Outlets. They last a long time even in wet sanding conditions and they are cheap too. My wife has a discount card from Sally from when she was a beautician years ago, which makes them even cheaper. Best Regards, Ken Bailey (SonyKen)
  7. All, I would like to buy or trade for one of Tamiya's new Tomcats in 1/48th scale. Of course, I am looking for the Tamiya F-14D Tomcat (Kit #611118). I have tons of kits, decals, aftermarket resin and photo-etched. Name your poison! I am ready to deal!! Thanks for Looking! Best Regards, Ken Bailey (SonyKen)
  8. I would if I could, but ARC will not let me upload the pictures due to size restrictions. I have uploaded the two images I have to my Photobucket account but that account is so hard to navigate due to pop-ups and having to re-confirm my email address, that I can't even copy and paste the link for each of the images. Do you folks think I will have better luck posting the images to the ARC FaceBook page? Thanks for the help!! Best Regards, Ken Bailey (SonyKen)
  9. All, I have not been to many IPMS National Conventions in my lifetime but the up-coming "Nats" in Chattanooga, TN appears to be shaping up as another record setter in terms of all the statistics that are associated with any IPMS Nationals. Of course this is just my opinion but I saw the same kind of signs before the record setting Nationals in Atlanta, and those signs I saw at the "regular" model contest in Chattanooga yesterday. I just checked and the primary and secondary hotels for the event have been sold out and reservations for the third venue are selling out fast after yesterdays contest. So my advise to all of you folks that were/are going to this event, I hope you have your reservations made. Good Luck to All!! Best Regards, Ken Bailey (SonyKen)
  10. All, My father-in-law (wife's dad) passed away over the Holidays. While we were going through his stuff, we found a picture of him dressed in what I thought may have been an US Army uniform. My wife's oldest brother said the picture was from him in the service with no branch of service specified. He said that their dad was drafted but during his induction, it was discovered that he had 3 small children at home and he was basically excused/dismissed from military service. The family is wanting to know more about his brief service. Her brother said he was drafted and the time frame would have been some time in the early 1950's. An educated guess on my part is that there was a draft around the time of the Korean conflict and the branch of service was most likely the US Army. So we need you folks out there to help us out with the founding out more information about his service. Thanks for all the information! Best Regards, Ken Bailey (SonyKen)
  11. Jeff, PM inbound. Cheers! Best Regards, Ken Bailey (SonyKen)
  12. I just checked my work schedule and I will be working on that Saturday night. But as I have done in the past, I will be going through the stash and will be making some donations. Cheers! Best Regards, Ken Bailey (SonyKen)
  13. Very sad to hear! Damn, I had plans to go to the model contest in Murfreesboro TN and one of the things that I was looking most forward to was being able to see and talk to Rex. Unfortunately my mom took a spill out her backdoor on Friday and had to be hospitalized. So I was not able to see my longtime friend for what would have been the last time. Very saddening indeed! Rest In Peace, Rex Droste. Prayers to the family. Best Regards, Ken Bailey (SonyKen)
  14. Jeff, PM me your address and I will get the parts in the mail to ya. Best Regards, Ken Bailey (SonyKen)
