  1. Like Jim and Dave above, using Firefox. dnl42, nothing happens. It simply remains on the page I'm reading at the time. Ok, so it appears the culprit is Firefox. It's not an end of world issue, just annoying! Oh well
  2. Several weeks ago I started having issues with the 'back' button not working on the ARC forums. To clarify, if I opened a topic to read, I had to click on one of the forum tabs (home, general discussion, etc.) at the top to get back to the main forum. I thought it might have been my computer, but after buying a new one, it does the same thing. This is the only forum/site that has this problem. Anyone else experiencing the same issue?
  3. Roden 1/144 C-5

    Roden priced their 1/72 C-123 kits in the $60 to $70 range. Those kits are more complex and have more parts than the C-5, and they're roughly the same size when built. Roden was smoking crack when they put a $165 retail tag on the C-5. That price isn't due to the tooling cost either, it's because they felt modelers would pay that much. Sorry, but even Lucky Models price is too high for that kit (which isn't LM's fault). Based on other kits in their product line (parts count, size, etc.), it should have been in the $40 to $60 range.

  6. Roden 1/144 C-5

    I came really, really close to selling my Revell kit for $50 when the Roden kit was announced. So glad I changed my mind!
  7. Giving up beer for a month

    I made it for close to four months last year. Had my last beer in the middle of November of 2015 and didn't have another until the first couple days of March 2016. At the time, I was drinking 3 or 4 a night. Since then, I'm averaging about 3 or 4 a week, sometimes even fewer. Believe it or not, one thing I did to force myself to drink less was to buy more expensive and better beer. Innis and Gunn is between $11 and $16 for a pack of FOUR, depending on which one it is and where it is purchased from. Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale is pretty expensive too. However, they are damn good beers! Spending that much for beer pretty much guarantees they're going to last a few days. As far as liquor goes, I have a glass (or two) of whiskey every weekend.
  8. Hasegawa vs Kinetic F-18 Comparison Question

    An F/A-18D can be built from the box. You'll just have to know which parts to use as they aren't called out in the instructions.
  9. Sweet!!!!! Saw the update on Facebook as Well! Can't wait to see it!
  10. A-6 Desert Storm loadouts

    224 and 533 almost always had a 167 on station 4 during the first several days. Station 2 was usually a GBU-12, with 1 and 5 typically carrying a MER with 82's or Mk-20
  11. What do you mean, 'may'.........make it happen!!!
  12. Super Hornet shoots down Syrian SU-22

    You're taking this whole discussion a little bit too seriously.
  13. I'm not sure if a direct link will work, but there is a post on Hyperscale with the following title: Pics, Noseart and mission marks from historic A-10C Expenditionary Unit.... It's currently on the first page of Plane Talking. Decals brother, make it happen!!
  14. Super Hornet shoots down Syrian SU-22

    See what happens when you break OPSEC on ARC? Combat Aircraft gets wind of the discussion by modelers and publish an article for all to see and read. Way to go guys, way to go!
