    I like to learn as much as I can about everything, preferably by experience.

  1. My Forums Are On Half The Page

    Are you on an Android device? This happens to me when I have a notification or PM in my inbox. Just swipe to the side at the top of the screen to check them.
  2. Shelf Queens Pt. II GB

    Lack of interest is what made them shelf-queens in the first place. :)
  3. The Last Jedi

    With that two-bit shill JJ Abrams involved, I don't see it turning out well.
  4. Really? A lot of their newer stuff is REALLY nice. the new 1/48 spitfires, hurricane, defiant, P-40, in 1/72 the Whitley, F4F, B5N, Gladiator, Swordwish, He-111 and beaufighter series all spring to mind.
  5. The PC Gaming Thread

    Man, I'd love to try out some of these new flight sims that let you play online. But all I have at home is a laptop, and not a particularly powerful one. Heck! I don't even own a joystick anymore, nor would I know where to find one. The last sim I played was Pacific Air Combat or some-such. Probably about 10 years ago. I remember how awesome it was when I dove on a zero in my wildcat, led a bit, squeezed the trigger for less than a second, and watched him explode into a ball of flame. Which I immediately flew into and died! :) These Aces High and Rise of Flight games look awesome.
  6. 1/72 Azur FRROM Northrop Delta 1A

    Wow! This is really great. Was it a challenging build?
  7. Corsair heavy weathering

    I would venture that it was a bit of column A and a bit of column B. It would depend on length of service, location of service. Do you have a particular aircraft in mind? Photos to go from?
  8. I'm on the hunt for a set of markings for a B5N2 in 1:48. I don't have anything particular in mind, but preferably a camouflaged bird. Maybe one of the Pearl Harbor raiders. I'd be happy with a set of kit decals from one of the Hasegawa boxings, or from the Aeromaster Tora Tora sheet. The kit I have is missing its decal sheet. Please PM me, if you've got something to offer.
  9. Giving up beer for a month

    5-10 beers a week is NOT a problem. That is a very moderate amount.
  10. Display Cabinet Ideas

    Looks like they would be much harder than the Detolf to hack.
  11. The voodoo that I do

    Surging ahead today. I installed the interior, nose gear bay, weapons bay and wing. The missile pan fits poorly so I first glued it to the lower wing and then stuck the whole thing on. Fit of the wing isn't great, but also not as bad as I thought it would be.
  12. The voodoo that I do

    A little bit more. The cockpit is finished, save for the seats, which I just started.
  13. SAMI Magazine

    It has been a frequent problem for them. I'm not sure they have an actual staff of professional editors.
  14. Weathering. I've killed several perfectly fine builds trying to do some weathering. I'm of the less is more school and so o find things get overdone quickly. And then it's hard to get the toothpaste back in the tube. The current trend is for aircraft that look like they've been flown through soil, but that isn't my style.
  15. Italeri 1/72 CH-149 Cormorant

    Looks awesome, Ray.
