  1. When a new portion of the Free Trade Agreement kicked in Jan 1/1999 it had a clause that said all Hobby supplies were free of duty and GST. I was aware of it at the time as I was working with Cutting Edge and sample product was being sent over the border to me. All charges ceased in 99. Whenever I challenge charges (only twice), I always quote the hobby exemption.
  2. I dispute them and get the money back. I’ve only had to do that twice, since 1999 I haven’t paid a cent extra on any kits or assesories shipped to Canada.
  3. You do know Revell reboxed the ICM kit and it can be found for less in Canada that route? I saw one in Edmonton for $64.99, I’m kicking myself I didn’t buy it when I saw it, it is gone now.
  4. I’m trying to get an Edmonton store to stock Mr. Paint. Yes, no luck getting anyone to ship to Canada. Except through eBay. I was ordering direct before Mr Paint stopped shipping to us.
  5. I was a Human Factors in Military Aviation Facilitator, we used the Swiss cheese model too.
  6. I wouldn’t say the person was an idiot, complacency is a very common thing that very skilled people fall into. And as mentioned in the follow-up post to your post, we don’t know all the details.
  7. This should help you: http://hedgehoghollow.com/buzz/Colour_Guide/aircraft_clr.html Use the version for 1 CAG T-birds. They were not painted with the Dutch colors. They were painted in Scotland with the Canadian 101-327. Gunze H306 plus 10% white is a good match (FS36270).
  8. The symmetrical camouflage scheme correct? I have that informaton somewhere. Are you using the Canuck Decals sheet? Does he not list the Grey?
  9. I’m ex-Avionics too, that still takes an effort considering the person doing the work knows he has a loaded jet and should know the hazards. Every accident is the result of a chain chain of events, break any link in that chain and the accident doesn’t occur. You just demonstrated the number of links that added to the final result.
  10. Hobby Wholesale in Edmonton has the fullline of the new paints.
  11. There are definite ways to bypass the switches, especially if the jet was being worked on. I was only permitted to work on armed jets during one specific operation. I didn’t like it. It wasn’t wartime ops, it was G-8 protection, to keep jets over the summit 24-7. Hopefully the WOW override box wasn’t connected. Although there are pin shorts that could fire a weapon system without an override of the WOW. It takes a lot of effort to accomplish this though.
  12. Wow, a second one, you are awesome!
  13. Very nice, love the presentation.
  14. Love it! The Hercules is still my first love in aircraft. 🙂
  15. Beautiful everything! Two weeks? That would take me two years.
  16. 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!
  17. Sorry to hear, losing a pet is never easy.
  18. 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.
  19. Exactly, I’ve read a lot of people say they look the same. They don’t at all, AMKs is two piece.
  20. 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.
