  1. Wow, a second one, you are awesome!
  2. Very nice, love the presentation.
  3. Love it! The Hercules is still my first love in aircraft. 🙂
  4. Beautiful everything! Two weeks? That would take me two years.
  5. Wow Chuck, jaw dropping. I haven't seen your recent works in person. I hope to get to see this and the F-15 next year in Calgary!
  6. Sorry to hear, losing a pet is never easy.
  7. Airforce does too, I was in a Tactical Helicopter Squadron for part of my career. We even had satellite TV, and we purchased a shower trailer.
  8. Exactly, I’ve read a lot of people say they look the same. They don’t at all, AMKs is two piece.
  9. Royal Canadian Navy is the same, they have drinking messes on the ships. I hear a lot of US sailors love serving on a Canadian ship.
  10. Exactly, McDonald’s isn’t the only fast food business that sells burgers.
  11. Posted a few posts up a day ago.
  12. Probably coming out later, but would have made more sense now
  13. Alberta. I bought the ZM Phantom six months ago. And that and one other ZM Phantom were probably the only kits I purchased from a US seller in 4-5 years. I price checked the Phantoms with offers from Japan, Sprue Brothers was actually cheaper. I think ZM in Japan was jacking their shipping so as to not to compete with ZM USA. I just looked at my invoice, they were $75 US shipped. My go to locations are Lucky, Hannants, and Ultracast. For decals it is eBay seller rebelalpha.
  14. I’m very selective what I buy from them now, they do have economy shipping now. You need to select it from a pull down though. I can ship a kit for $20, aftermarket for less. I shipped a ZM Phantom on a sale for $85 US total.
  15. Nothing really left in Canada that I know of, I usually order from Europe/Asia or through eBay, depending on shipping. The only US seller with reasonable shipping is Spruebrothers
  16. It was the aircraft that was in his log book the most on his second tour. He took whatever was ready. All records from the Blacksheeps first tour were lost.
  17. He actually said they were outside in a shipping container. So they could be close.
  18. I’m friends with the graphic artist that designed the schemes on the actual jets. He is supposed to be retired now but he continues to design. He was a civilian graphic artist employed in one of our Hornet Squadrons. I ran into him this summer and he said he is up to 55 paint jobs now. He even designed the jet I initiated the suggestion for in my squadron. The decals for the Canada 150 (150th anniversary of our nation) jet that you have was his design from last year. He was very proud of that one as the scheme was also put on Canada’s bobsleds in the Winter Olympics. Billions of eyes got to see his design in the Olympics. The unveiling of the bobsleds was in a hangar with the 150 jet. I also know the decal designer, he does great work. He owns Leading Edge Models. Nice to see his work being printed by Cartograf now. I don’t think you offended any of us, you had a valid question. The Kinetic Hornet was the brainchild of a good friend of mine who passed away recently from cancer. I wish he would have been alive to see the kit released. Raymond deserves thanks too, he was also good friends with Rick.
  19. I may also have an extra, only paid $5 (Canadian) for it. It’s yours for shipping only if I still have it. How are you doing Carmen?
