    HMS Tabard 1/350 scale Resin KIt

    Mike, Already ordered. It is in the mail to me already in Connecticut. So looking forward to it. Thank you for the great service assisting me the other day. Any chance you will be doing more in 1/350... I'd be in for a Churchill SSN 😀... Dave

    Argh! Went to order and Starling is out of stock. Flankerman, I have to live vicariously through you for a while... Dave

    HMS Tabard 1/350 scale Resin KIt

    Awesome. Have been waiting to see one. Need to get one on my shelf. Should kickstart my WWII submarine build, but I need to decide what Soviet boat to do. Dave

    US Navy terminology question.

    A gallon of relative bearing grease...
  6. Chief, not trying to say that officers don't get paid enough compared to enlisted, but our costs certainly are higher which you undoubtedly saw when you put on your anchors. I know I get paid a ton more than my sailors, but that doesn't mean that having to drop $600 is not a painful hit especially for my JOs. Also, for all my Sailors who were out of boot camp with blue camo stuff, they didn't get anything that covered the cost of the green camo stuff for cold weather that they just had to buy as we changed homes to Connecticut. It saddens me, as I am sure it did you, that I have to tell my department heads and department Chiefs to have their Chiefs take their Sailors to Navy Marine Corps Relief for loans. I agree with you completely that enlisted don't get paid enough for the work they have to put in. Dave
  7. I'll disagree on the size of the allowance... Especially when you add in parka, fleece, etc that you need in some climates. And I always enjoy the argument that officers get paid enough so it doesn't matter... Dave
  8. The enlisted sailors still have the allowance, but it really doesn't pay for much. They do give them a one time payment for uniforms each time we pull this uniform swap, but it still isn't enough to cover the total change out. And for officers, nada. Dave
  9. I think most active duty guys in the Navy are sick of the constant changes for no reason functional reason, so I would assume Army is the same. I can't say that I was excited to drop $600 to look like I am a Jarhead. But, maybe it makes the young guys feel cool. It just makes me lament all the models that could have been... Dave

    USS Sealion LPSS-315 in 1/350 scale

    Awesome. Keep up the good work. I'm planning on doing Sealion in 1/144 as she was for operations of Vietnam. Dave
  11. I like to think of myself as someone who suffers for his art... Dave
  12. I think I'll just keep going with my Revel Foxbat that I am converting to a RU. Unfortunately life keeps getting in the way of progress... Dave
  13. Ok, found one pic on the site of the camera completely outside the pallet: http://www.bharat-rakshak.com/IAF/Galleries/Special/Features/Foxbats/12-FoxbatCamera.jpg.html I know I have 3-4 more camera pallet pictures in various books, but I am away from home so I can't check. Dave
  14. There were a couple in the Mig-25 retirement pictures on http://www.bharat-rakshak.com that I can't find at the moment... Dave
