  1. I guess the larger hub probably has this system in place, but at my local PO you can watch them hand sorting bins from the window while you wait in line. These are individual bins for the route drivers. I had a package show up I had to sign for while I was at work. Got home, grabbed the tag and went to the PO. They could not find my package. Took my phone # and said they would call me. I got the call as soon as I pulled in my driveway. 😐 Just told them to deliver it the next day since he took my signature. I'll give him credit, he kept looking for it until it showed up.
  2. Human mail sorting has flaws. Gets tossed into the wrong bin and then it as to go through the motions before correction. I've had several items show up at our central hub here in town, get sent to a small community in the opposite direction and then back to the hub before coming to me. I think I've had one package travel the country like that in the past.
  3. Imagine that, referring to an airplane on a model airplane forum. LOL! Yea, I've seen all the speed stuff for the Mustangs. My boys were bugging me to put a blower on it. Nope, been there, done that in my younger days. Not dropping another $10K on a toy. I just don't need 700+ HP to get to work. Hell, I have a resto-mod '66 GT Fastback sitting in my garage about 98% done. Can't get off my butt and finish the last 2%.
  4. Yea, but that can’t get me to work everyday..... ....Mustang does.
  5. Just read that some postal employees have been arrested and charged for destruction of mail. Never could figure out why someone would take a job with the excellent benefits USPS offers, and then throw it all away by breaking all the basic rules.
  6. My 5D classic gets spots like that when the sensor gets dust on it. Nice pic!
  7. Seal Model has the SUFA for $109 plus shipping from Hong Kong. Just Google search Seal Model.
  8. Start your own business by advertising locally? I have a close friend that is a teacher and she does pretty good on the side as a tutor. I guess if your area has a Nextdoor App or Facebook would be a good place to start advertising? Even online is possible these days with the right gear.
  9. Every once in a while I would get the same result. Not sure why it happened, but I mix my paint and dump what I don't use now.
  10. Never been a big fan of football, but the wife is. I'm the football widow in the family. But the NFL has finally jumped the shark with the pandering to the players and not to the fans. And now with the canned crowd noise too, the ratings drop is real and for a reason. I can tolerate college ball, but there is starting to be a very fine line between college and pro lately. Starting to get turned off to it as well. As far as NASCAR, I gave up when they stopped using production car bodies/panels. '91 was the end of an era for me. Especially when they did away with Winston Cup.
  11. Ok, thanks. I was hoping the box color chart gave some codes.
  12. Kit arrived on Thursday. Looks like a quick and fun build. Now talk about the Mandela Effect, I always thought the Shuttle was white. After looking at the color codes on the box for painting, I went back and scanned through the “Galileo Seven” episode. Sure enough, there it is just like the box says. Looks like the same gray/green color on the top half just like the Enterprise?
  13. I placed a pre-order for this kit back in Feb. Then I see this thread and start wondering where my kit is at. Open email and there’s a FedEx notification from Monsters In Motion and I’ll have it next Friday. What a coincidence! Yours looks stunning! Can’t wait until I can get back to some bench time.
  14. Here too! Great post from Darren too. I tried out a few resin seats, and they do look great. But at the end of the day when my build is done, it goes in the display case and I never look inside the cockpit again. I love doing the resin conversions though. When the pandemic started and I was at home I built one of Paul Fisher’s fat faced Skyraider conversions. Now that was a lot of enjoyment. I’ve got another to do as well and I’m really looking forward to it.
  15. LOL! Here's one for some gear at work we ordered. I'll just type info in. But it was a FedEx delivery. Shipped out from Redmond, WA on 8/03 to South Carolina 8/4 - Troutdale, OR 8/5 - Tremonton, UT to Gothenberg, NE 8/6 - Whittington, IL 8/7 - Kennesaw, GA (It's getting close!!) 8/8 - Kennesaw, GA 8/9 - Kennesaw, GA 8/10 - Kennesaw, GA 8/16 - Tracy, CA (Oops!
