  1. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Hadn’t seen that Cal Worthington skit in years! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Humor from the Ghost of USAF Past, now you need permission from the USAF Office of Butthurtness!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. Thanks for bringing that one back! John
  2. Feeling bold? Try Richie's Plank Experience on Oculus Quest! 😝
  3. Mr. Paint MRP 278 & MRP 280, ModelMaster Neutral Gray FS36270 John
  4. Great kit, fit was very good. Couple of engineering burps, the vertical and horizontal tail could have been designed better, molding the upper and lower fuselage with the wings would have been better than separate wings. Overall no issues, modeling skills and patience to get a nice finish. John
  5. Let me re-phrase that Covid was born from Unicorn Fecal Matter that somehow ended up on Bat Wings in a Wuhan Wet Market.
  6. I am with Dave & Steve, my brothers! Two full books of International Certificates du Vaccines stamped on every page, don't even know what some of the older ones were anymore. Chinese Originated Viral Infectious Disease vaccinators are in for a surprise when they tell you this will be required annually for full protection and you will have to start paying for it. Nothing natural about this virus, sheeple can believe what they are told, I will take the vaccine when the government admits that is was weaponized manipulated bio-weapon engineered with US funding in a research laboratory desig
  7. Just remember $100 USD in 1970 would buy you what $691.72 does today. So you would be able to buy a lot of Airfix, Frog, Monogram, Revell, Hasegawa, Tamiya kits for a C-note. Sure would not get any accurate Soviet Russian subjects, or resin, PE, but Microscale Decal sheets were $1.25 and many were in 1/72 scale. Not a lot of 1/32 scale mostly Revell & Hasegawa, Monogram 1/48 kits were the choice in the USA. Testors small bottles of paint were .15 cents, Tube glue about .12 cents. Used to get a car model, 3 bottles of paint & a can of spray paint & glue for less than $3.50. No
  8. A-10s were originally in the gray scheme when they went to USAFE in 1978/79. I remember having a walkaround admiring the GAU8/A cannon putting 2 finger tips in the barrel. They went Euro 1 lizard scheme shortly thereafter before reverting back to the gray scheme. John
  9. Went to a few open houses in conjunction with NCT IPMS Shows at the end of the 90's & early 00's. Killer deals back then, 1/32 Tamiya F-15E Bunker Buster $89., Classic Airframe Kits, just about everything you could want. Warehouse was stocked, stacked floor to ceiling, modelers heaven. It would be like going through Sprue Brothers Warehouse today if you could. The first time I went without a list, only a few items on my mind, then when I got to walking around, I forgot what I wanted, it was awesome. It changed hands and has been struggling since maybe 2004/05, sad really, monopol
  10. Looks like somebody's dip did not make the ground during load up, damn BB Stackers, get the crew dawg and some spray n wipe!😝 John
  11. Cutting Edge empennage & tail, Red Roos slatted wing, scratch built V Screen. John
  12. True but FS 36076 weathers rapidly, like FS 36118. RAL 7015/FS 36076 may be the starting shade but it seems to weather to the purple hue after time. I have seen FS 36118 weather to a Gull Gray on jets in for PDM. Just have to look at the photo and period in time it is being modeled. John
  13. Looks like the β€œEggplant” color has been applied to the F-35!🀩
  14. Picked these up the other day, looks very nice in the box and should add lots of interest to Russian AC vignettes & Dioramas. Surprised there is not a lot of excitement with all Russian AC builders on ARC. John
