  1. Try the rare plane detective site. He could give you a fair price.
  2. I read FSM on line through my local library. $00.00
  3. I would just keep them. Your daughter won’t be an infant forever. Eventually if you decided to start building again, these are nice simple kits to reignite your desire. Think long term.
  4. http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/challenger-vip-jet-fleet-1.4636818 Here we go again. How much can this get balled up? Should we check out the Aussie’s used lot?
  5. Set that way to counter torque? I’m clutching at straws.
  6. Donate a good parf of them to charity to auction. They will benefit, do the work and solve the problem. Could be a Legion, restoration group, Cadet unit or any cause that is raising money. Cheers paul
  7. I sit when I work in my model room. I use a film stripper’s light table to work on and sit on a high chair that is bar stool height. The glass top is great to clean and the light is good for cutting masks. When i air brush, i retire to the basement and the freezer top.
  8. Iwata Smartjet. Makes less noise than my wife’s sewing machine.
  9. Are you a sitter or a stander? I always stand and paint in a collapsible booth that i put on top of a chest freezer in the basement. I have a clip on work light hanging on a joist above. Laundry sink is very nearfot cleanups.
  10. +1. This place has been dead. Anything breathes some life into it. Things around here used to be a lot more stimulating.
  11. My original thought, but I want to hear the non political reasons for the decision. Is there a pot of gold in it that I’m not aware of? Sorry to kick the Hornet’s nest but things have been slow around here.
  12. Soooo.... what benifits will we taxpayers reap from buying used Hornets? Lower price? Allowing us to avoid on the depreciation following a New purchase like an auto? How can I justify this? What are the pros?
  13. Scale and prices would help. Just say’in.
  14. Cold Lake in another dimension?
  15. Too much hair growing on this one. Forget about this and move on.
  16. FREE is the only thing I will consider. (Scottish ancestors).
  17. I paint the hub and then the tire using a hairy stick and very thin paint. The paint flows to where it should be (usually). Sometime helps if you stick your tongue out a bit.
  18. The Canadian public is uninformed. The Press has done very little to bring them up to speed. I have forwarded informative information to people around me and I get comments like “ it’s too complicated,” or they can’t be bothered. I have been asked by my wife why I get so wound up over it. The nonsense going on is criminal and nobody is interested. How Canadian.
  19. The last? Sounds final. Egad! I hope I have a while to go yet.
  20. If it’s a crappy kit, look on line for the BEST version of what you want to build and go for it. You can certainly find enough reviews around to steer you in the right direction. That’s what I would do.
  21. The Dollar Store has lots of cosmetic things that we use and also the craft dept. there. I’m not MacStingy for nothing!
