  1. Boy it's being a while with life and then covid life and then post covid life. Now with this life of increasing inflation and dwindling income, I still enjoy the hobby except at a much, much smaller scale, no pun intended, to the point of not being able to build any kits other than pre-covid paused builds. Stalled due to time and hacking them up to make them more accurate. Well more accurate in shape than in the number of rivets. 😄 I hope everyone is doing well and I just wanted to update on myself and say 'Hi and I haven't completely abandoned the hobby. Well not yet.". 😄
  2. Yes, well put. Some of these idiots are trying to profiteer from this and are the ones buying all the toilet paper, sanitizing wipes and hand sanitizer. Thankfully some reseller sites are doing the right thing and blocking these these sellers for marking up prices by 500%. Not to make light of the situation but it reminds me of that Seinfeld episode.
  3. Hello Everyone, It's been awhile since I have been in the ARC forums but things in life seems to create a pausing effect in our hobby but I still enjoy an interest in aviation. I'm asking if someone could please help scan some missing pages in pdf at 150 dpi (seen this as minimum for a public library scanner) , I'd really appreciate it. The titles and missing pages are listed as follows: Monogram Close-Up 02, Junkers 288 (pages 1 & 2) Monogram Close-Up 13, Aichi M6A1 Seiran (pages 23, 24, 25 & 26) The Horten Flying Wing in World War II - The His
  4. I'm glad to see Tamyia producing some 1/48 scale modern tanks like the M1 Abrams and JSDF Type 10. But I'd also like to see them produce a 1/48 scale Leopard 2, British Challenger and other Cold War and recent modern tanks. Does anyone know if Tamyia has any new modern 1/48 scale tanks in the works? Tanks in advance.
  5. I watched the 50's movie "The Giant Claw" and an unlikey star of the picture, to me, is the Avro CF-100. There was other stock footages of the Northrop F-89 Scorpion and North America F-86 Sabre but seeing stock footage of a CF-100 in a movie was something I didn't expect.
  6. Thanks, Jackman. Still would like to see if that Scale Modeler article will give a little more details on the conversion. But so far from the hyperscale article it seems to be a challenge.
  7. Hi Guys, If someone has the Scale Modeler November 1993 issue, could you scan the pages in regards to an article on converting the Hasegawa (Revell Germany) 1/32 scale F-5E Tiger II into a F-5A (CF-5A) Freedom Fighter by John Lumley. I would very much appreciate it as I would like to read it. Thank you in advance.
  8. Hi Aerofan,


            I'm scanning these pages for you as I type this. If you want to contact me directly at tcalbury@telus.net I will send them to you.

      Thank you for scanning those pages. I was able to print out the missing pages & insert them into the two Canadian Profile Library books so others can enjoy a full copy of the books.




  9. Thanks to Tom. I have the missing pages scanned.
  10. After seeing Shawn "phantom" Weiler's what-if Avro CF-105 Arrow Mk.2 on ARC's main page and with the recent search for the free flight models in Lake Ontario, I thought I'd pass on some other related news, albeit 3 - 4 months late. There's a group in Alberta building a scaled down flyable Avro Arrow. Here's the link to the news article.
  11. I grew up watching the 60's Batman reruns but most recently I enjoyed his mayor Adam West on Family Guy. Thanks for the childhood memories and recent laughs. RIP Mr. Adam West.
  12. I'm very late to this party but Vac Wings 48 made a number of 1/48 scale vacuform aircraft in addition to their Vac Wings 72 1/72 scale line of aircraft.
  13. Parts being snipped out of the sprue seems suspicious but if the sprues are still in the clear plastic bag with the factory sealing then that would be different story. Clear sprues missing from kits do happen. It seems Monogram's 1/48 F-101B is notorious for it because I too had the same problem but I bought mine as a factory sealed NOS (New Old Stock) from a shop that was closing when the owner decided to retire. At the time the Monogram name was longer and it was just Revell. Luckily, Revell reissued the 48 scale Voodoo and with 2 emails, 1 to CS and another to Operations as per CS reply e
  14. Was shocked to learn about Anton Yelchin's death. Of all the JJ Abrams' ST crew, I like Anton's Chekov. I wonder what this will do for future ST films. He's a very talented young actor who has left us too soon. RIP Anton Yelchin. Anton Yelchin Wikipedia write up
