  1. In the modern age we aren’t talking years of the economy being shut-down, if everyone does their part this should only take a few months. If everyone did isolate properly it should have been eliminated in weeks. So this can’t be compared to the Great Depression.
  2. Hospitals, Emergencies and ICU departments are completely overrun/decimated with covid patients. That doesn’t happen on a normal day due to one type of illness. The number one cause of death in the US is covid. Covid transmits easier than any other illness, therefore that small percentage of deaths you quote are actually larger totals. Quit downplaying the severity of this pandemic.
  3. Yeah, Hannity did say all of that, he also said the death rate numbers are fake. That it’s just a flu.
  4. I don’t pay any attention to Huff Post, I do listen and watch CNN and based on my medical background their experts give excellent and accurate advice. What I hear on FOX is terrifying and inaccurate. You don’t hear anything on FOX repeated on other networks.
  5. Dead on, Herd Immunity is a risky proposition.
  6. Honestly, from an educated scientific perspective, from what I have witnessed, trust any of the major players except FOX.
  7. As I mentioned, I totally sympathize and understand with those out of work. Do you think we feel comfortable working around this virus? It isn’t a great feeling and I am scared for my wife. Governments should be able help their people. Canada is doing a great job helping out business and the unemployed with funds. I didn’t reply to your previous thread to this one but I did sympathize with you. Health is first and foremost.
  8. I honestly hear you Darren and I not on opposite ends of the field as you. I don't think this will be 18 months. Theoretically, if everyone did the right thing for two weeks that would have stopped the spread. Early containment was the key.
  9. Yes, that is odd. One thing I noticed is when this post originated all his regular facebook posts ceased around the same time. Hopefully Matt's health is well. I worry for him more than my order. He is in the Boston area. As I have mentioned, Matt is usually quick responding. There is one reply here though that says he just shipped a few days ago. So maybe the opposite is occurring, maybe he is overwhelmed with orders, which is good for him in there tough times.
  10. Middle ground does exist with increased testing and PPE and simple procedures like washing hands and not touching your nose, mouth, or eyes.
  11. Like Habu, I also work in the medical field. I work in Cancer Care, research, and prototype medical device creation. My professor says I am a scientist first before a Biomedical Engineer. I've had work published in medical journals and I am currently working in collaboration with several labs working on a vaccine for covid. So I am front line with this virus. I see it in both patients and in the lab. My wife is an emergency room RN and it is terrifying to hear what she is seeing. In normal times you don't see entire departments/hospitals overwhelmed with one illness. One thing I keep hearing is this argument about how few people are dying from this virus when compared to other illness. The key difference here is the transmission. It is much higher, without the social distancing we potentially could be wiping out millions, with no end in sight. Economies will recover. Dead people don't. Cardiac events have increased 5 fold since this virus was introduced, there are people who fall ill and don't even make it to a hospital. And many of these deaths are not being accounted for in the numbers. It is now well known this virus is not only attacking the lungs, it is also causing inflammation in the heart and kidneys and other key organs in the body. I get it, that times are tough. My parents lived in Scotland during the war, both of their homes were destroyed by German bombing and money and jobs were non-existent for most of the war. Food was rationed and scarce. I think we can survive a few months to stop the spread of this virus, times have been much tougher. The 30s are another example. It's tough to read this thread, reading about people upset they can't get their hair cut or wash their truck. We sure became an entitled world.
  12. Given I have dealt with him before and he responds immediately this is odd I haven’t heard from him yet. Both my items were in stock.
  13. Does anyone know if Hobbyworld USA are still open during this crisis? I emailed Matt and have not heard back. Did the original poster hear back? Typically Matt responds immediately. He doesn't have any notifications on his website and his Facebook page has not been updated since Feb. Thanks!
  14. Speed Hunter has Georgia on their latest set.
  15. Just ordered multiple sheets plus the NASA Starfighters! Awesome subjects as per your norm!
  16. Very nice work, I love work that is inspirational! Having worked on Hornets for 8 years, I feel a great attachment when I see these builds.
  17. Snowbirds have already cancelled their spring training, which I am sure will effect the entire schedule. I hear the Blue Angles have to cancel training too, as they fly less than 6 feet apart. The Thunderbirds can therefore continue with their schedule. 🙂 Just kidding folks. I have reservations for the last Blue Angels show in Canada, I am guessing it will likely be cancelled.
  18. I've long felt that we Aztec users are a stubborn bunch. You either love or hate the Aztec. I've probably been using mine since the late 80s. It finally packed it in a few years ago and I wound up buying two new Aztec brushes at Michaels, on discount for $40.00 each. Around the same time a friend's Aztec also packed it in. He also purchased a few Aztec's on clearance. He was first to experience a failure, the new brushes were leaking internally. I found a way to disassembly them and repair the leak, but obviously quality suffered along the way. Last week as I was spraying I had another leak coming out the back of my Aztec, down my gloves and up my wrist. That was it! I wasn't fixing it again. I spray Mr. Color and Mr. Paint, so I hope I am able to spray these as flawlessly as before. I am also looking forward to hopefully spraying tighter lines on Luftwaffe aircraft. Two other friends of mine also used the Aztec for a long period of time, one being Brett Green and the other Spencer Pollard. I hear Spencer used to just switch colors on the fly in his brush. A few other friends of mine witnessed this in action in his hobby room. I think both retired their Aztec's. Again, to the ARC modelling family, thanks for all the replies. I'm making the break. I am about to finish my coffee, jump in the truck, and drive to my appointment at the Airbrush store!
  19. Wow, I saw some of these images on another website, but not all of them.
  20. So much great info in here, I decided on the Eclipse HP-CS. I Pick it up tomorrow! Curbside pick-up at the local airbrush store! I appreciate all the replies, I considered every suggestion, I may even purchase a second airbrush.
  21. And thank-you for this, the local airbrush store has these products too. I will read up on them Currently the shops are closed in Canada but they have set-up curbside pick-up.
  22. I’m leaning towards the Eclipse, done a lot of reading on it. Thanks for the reply.
  23. I did start a new kit, the GWH T-33. But I don’t have much time, I work Healthcare, as does my wife. Up at 5AM everyday, at work by 6 AM. I work nine hour days, I have every second Friday off. As this crisis picks up, I may redeploy to a critical care area, as I have CC experience. Currently I work in Cancer Care. We are only bringing in patients who can’t skip treatment at this time.
  24. I think I will finally make the plunge to a new Airbrush and make the break from my Aztec, which I have been using forever. I’m looking at the Iwata Eclipse HP-CS. I’m told I can’t go wrong with the Iwata Neo BCN. Any recommendations?
