    Hanging model airplanes from ceiling with ceiling fan

    habu2, Thanks for the comic relief. I am having a real issue with models moving, sometimes violently, and none are close to the blades, but there must be turbulence between the four fans. Here in southeast Texas, air movement within the confines of a room with lights and electronics is a necessity when several people are in the room. I want to find a way to mount the models to the ceiling that will hold them firmly in place.

    New eBay strategy by a buyer?

    Houston is a very big place. I moved away from there in 2011. No telling who you are dealing with. Sounds like he is young, but maybe he's an underachiever who never left the nest. He's definitely trying to weasel out of HIS bid.

    New eBay strategy by a buyer?

    I don't know too much about how eBay works for sellers, but perhaps you should contact the "powers that be" in eBay and share with them what you have shared with ARC. It does seem that something is a little smelly with the bidder. Maybe eBay can help you.
  4. What is the best method of hanging airplanes from the ceiling in a room with multiple ceiling fans ?

    It's a good thing NASA was not around when Thomas Jefferson was president. Hell, they would STILL be studying the readiness and safety of the Covered wagons and if the horses, oxen and mules were being harmed in anyway... Dennis

    Monogram Lunar modual landing kit

    Try some crushed lava rock and plaster of Paris. You can get the lava rock at Lowes or HD or a nursery supply store. I used a combination of this once for a volcano and lava display If you can find black lava rock, you should be able to duplicate the lunar landscape with relative ease. Dennis.

    What came in the mail for you today?

    Yesterday I received the 1/72 Viet Nam Package containing: Italeri 1/72 ACH-47 with Eduard PE detail set Aurora 1/72 HH-3 Monogram 1/72 F-4C/D Monogram 1/72 F-4J Monogram 1/72 F-105G Academy 1/72 U-2 from Dave Roof. Thank You Dave. Although it was pretty well packaged with the styrofoam peanuts, it was not USPS idiot proof. Some where between Georgia and Houston, the box was crushed and apparently placed in a position where it received lot of heat. The Aurora 1/72 HH-3 box was mangled and in several pieces. I did manage to find all of the pieces amongst the styrofoam peanuts and taped the box back together. So it will live to see another day. Unfortunately the Italeri 1/72 ACH-47 with Eduard PE detail set was directly below ground zero, and has some really interesting characteristics. Besides the sprues being shaped like an "S" curve, the tight fuselage half has two 30 degree bends and one really nasty heat spot. The Eduard PE detail set was bent up pretty badly, but I managed to roll it flat again and it will survive. This is the 2nd package I have recieved in the past 10 days from the USPS that has arrived after a very ugly trip via the USPS. It appears that the problem is probably here in Houston. It may even be at my local post office. So, if anybody reading this is affiliated with the USPS please let the Powers that be, know that "Houston ,We have a Problem" the zip is 77049-4026. Dennis
