  1. Would NOW be a great time for Model Companies to speed up new releases/and or Re Releases??? Man, Nothing different is on the hobby shelves!! C'mon all y'all!! Get crackin' and release something to shake the money outta our collective pockets!! Geesh!! Bo
  2. Well, so much for that!! Need to cancel my Room reservations. San Marcos would have been a great place for the NATS!! Bo
  3. Your case appears to be the vast majority of those that have it. Case Numbers HAVE risen in Texas; but, just yesterday news reported that hospitals are discharging patients faster due to mild or no symptoms and Critical Care facilities patients are down from earlier highs. (Hospitals lost a BOAT Load early on due to halt of test and elective surgeries and may just be trying to recover a bit???) Anyway, I plan to go and will take precautions, like wearing mask indoors and washing my hand frequently!! AND, I won't be French kissing anyone either!! LOL!!! I've knuckle bumped for 15 yrs or longer and haven't even had a cold in that time!! Hands are the easiest way to spread germs!! C U Thar!! Bo
  4. Mine was one color, black. Tail / Fuselage Number and WEBB above Badge. IIRC, around $50. (Gave me enuff for 8 aircraft!!) Bo
  5. Thanks. This is how I remember these birds in 1958 when I was about 14 yrs old. I recall the Anti-Glare Green as being an obvious Green color, not OD. Yes, I was a modeler even then. Training aircraft were well maintained. Bo
  6. From my hometown AFB Webb, this T-Bird crash landed at Webb in May '58. Had photos of crash site. Decals were Custom Made by Bedlam Creations. (Extremely clear decal film.) Comments? Bo
  7. It's in their catalog as 'New', yet it's not being listed or discussed by anyone??? The early version was the standard for Vietnam until the Charlie Model came along. The C Model made the CH-54 Skycrane obsolete. Anyway, I'll like to see an early Chinook. Bo
  8. AKA 'Scamdemic'!! 1 to two weeks we'll know. Either there will be a Boat Load of sick and dying demonstrators, or we've been had by WHO and CDC, or both!! I pick the later!! Bo
  9. The Embassy Suite Hotel is all sold out, soooo, someone is planning to go. I just now Pre-Registered and will find other another place to lay my little punkin' head. Probably won't stay for the full duration of the convention. Just long enuff to drain my pocket book in the Vendor Rooms and get inspired looking at everyone's beautiful builds!! C all y'all there!! Bo
  10. Who all is planning to go?? I haven't been to a Nationals in awhile and this one is pretty close. Just hope there isn't a upswing in CV-19 cases that would cause it to be cancelled. CU Thar??? Bo
  11. No need. I have mask for G Model. Thanks anyway. Bo
  12. Planning to build the 48th Memphis Belle, soon, and started looking for canopy mask. Ha!! None that I can find!! Looked at Eduard, Montex and EZ Mask. Plenty for the G Model; but, none for the Foxtrot Model!! Should be able to use some of the G mask, ....... I hope. Otherwise, back to the 'old fashion' way. Know of any, all y'all?? Bo
  13. Won't be able to see anything. In primer, and mask. I'm building this one 'when I get around to it'!! LOL!! Bo
  14. On my build, the nose cone was undersized compared to the fuselage. During dry fitting, I noticed that step present, so during assembly, used a sanding stick to ensure no plastic bits were left to keep the major two-piece fuselage from fitting snug together!! Nothing is worst than a prominent part with a step!! Did manage to sand and file down the fuselage so that step isn't, hopefully, too visible. About ready to shoot final coat of NMF, so we'll see. Bo
  15. The GWH kit is better; BUT, I'm currently building this kit and wish I had the Academy one. The GWH kit will NOT be a simply build. My 2 cents worth, if that. Bo
