  1. I contacted Steve and POD seems to be his take. While filing and organizing I discovered I have an original print of the Flying Pancake book, so I've filed a return. I'll look at what's available at Biblio, I believe I've purchased through them before. $132 for the F-111B book! Makes me regret exchanging the legit misprint I had 15+ years back that Tailspin kindly helped me out with. I should have had him sign it and then purchased another! LOL! I'd go for an F-111B conversion set in 1/72. I discovered the Pete's Hanger offering only after it had gone OOP, and Pete stated he
  2. I recently purchased Steve Ginter's Naval Fighters Number Twenty One, Chance Vought V-173 and XF5U-1 Flying Pancakes through Ebay. Upon arrival, I noticed something was a bit off with the book. It was printed on copy bond paper rather than glossy magazine paper, the print was skewed on the pages, presumably misaligned from using a copier, the leafs of the suspect copy were glued, rather than stapled on the originals, and the originals had the first page printed on the inside cover, while the first page of the suspect printing was moved to the first leaf, which later caused two-pa
  3. Sent her the question, waiting for her response. In the meantime, I'm using the historical documentaries 12 Monkeys, I am Legend, and World War Z for reference and guidance. Not well-knowing the nature of the virus, my biggest concern is that it maintains its devastating nature while mutating as rapidly as the common cold, thus, we never develop a social immunity to it, and it becomes a treadmill of critical cases and death year-after-year-after-year. Also, as a side note, have those of us from different countries and cultures been comparing notes on how the situation
  4. I have a friend with a PhD in epidemiology, who has worked for the CDC and USAMRIID and has done things like gone to Africa to play with Ebola. She's currently head of her office's Corona program. She though this was a worthwhile video on COVID-19 for under 10 minutes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BtN-goy9VOY
  5. As a symbol of my wealth and status, I have mounted a giant, industrial-sized roll of toilet paper on my living room wall... like a Mayan calendar.

  7. You do understand that "being manufactured in the UK" makes the issue "UK-source specific", regardless of other nations regulations that may also cause problems, right? Please, post the very sound evidence related to aviation safety that ounces of bottled enamel paint have resulted in an aircraft catching fire in flight and crashing. They allow liters of ALCOHOL to be shipped via aircraft, yet even water-based acrylic paints are banned. If the aircraft is at risk from ounces of bottled enamel paint, then that aircraft likely has more serious issues that will already lead to the loss of the
  8. How is Vallejo compared to Tamiya or Gunze Sangyo acrylics?
  9. Problem is, sadly, Rust-Oleum will likely be phasing-out the Model Master line (they've already started this), so Alclad II has the opportunity to fill the void. Personally, I'd like to see more White Ensign paints marketed, but being manufactured in the UK results in bureaucratic challenges to shipping enamel paints that complicates and impedes availability. Alclad II at least has manufacturing in the US and a penchant for fidelity and quality.
  10. Hope this is an indication they'll be taking over the Model Master niche. http://imodeler.com/2015/11/product-news-alclad-ii/
  11. From the other side (some NSFW English/Russian subtitiles, have NO idea on the spoken Arabic):
  12. Did any of the bushings, bearings, or seals give up the ghost? Is the valve/flow adjust assembly in proper position and order? Also, how do you tend to clean your airbrush; did a chunk of old paint get lodged somewhere it shouldn't?
  13. Depending on the vintage of the cement and the seal of the cap, it may have vented-off enough of a volatile component to cause issues. Historically speaking, though, I've found the joins created by tube glue became brittle over time, which is why use some form of liquid weld.

  15. Probably the best example of Scandinavian PWNAGE I've run across to date: http://imgur.com/gallery/SVBcRi0

  17. Too bad Lucas gave up the rights, he really could have edited this in (it also spins back to Trigger's post regarding drama-queen Anakin):
  18. Anybody been following since the Russians parked the Moskva off the Syrian coast? http://www.businessinsider.com/it-looks-like-russian-warships-may-be-shutting-out-israels-air-force-access-to-syria-2015-10 And is the Moskva out there alone, or is it part of a larger battle group including what ships?
  19. I'm having New Zealand flashbacks.
  20. AT-802s in Yemeni and UAE service: I'd love to manufacture a series of 1/72 kits on crop dusters, my favorites being the turboprop biplanes.
  21. Don't use too many movie lines, but my life seems to be trapped in a Leslie Nielsen skit.
  22. At $175 million a pop, that's a lot of loose change. http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/10/28/us-usa-military-blimp-idUSKCN0SM2F920151028
