  1. Most hated model?

    The Monogram 1/48 P-61 Black Widow. The fuselage was warped, nothing fit, the raised panel lines disappeared from sanding seams, and the clear parts made me reconsider the whole kit. I trashed it, turned it into spare parts, and started building sci-fi models out of it.
  2. Avatar Models?

    Here's a WIP of a guy building a paper Scorpion. http://myhobbycraft.blogspot.com/2010/01/a...avatar-172.html Shouldn't be TOO hard to convert to styrene.
  3. OMG...Look at this...

    So, who's up for a trip down to the deep sea bed to snag some lunch? I'll bring the butter.
  4. Today the hobby is...

    None of these really work for me. I haven't touched a model in damn near 5 months.
  5. Virulence-class Star Destroyer scratchbuild

    No updates yet. I actually haven't been working on any models for a couple months. I've got a bunch of projects started and half-finished, and I just got a bit burned out. I'm heading to Air Force basic training in November, so it will probably be a while before I get any modeling done. Thanks for asking though!
  6. F/A-37 Talon from STEALTH

    It's not that 90% of movie goers are "too stupid" to want a believable combat aircraft, it's that 90% of movie goes don't care if it's believable. That's the whole reason unbelievable action movies exist. Sometimes people just want to sit and enjoy watching a movie without worrying about if it's realistic or not. Besides, if you're going to get this ****** off over a movie, what was the point of seeing it in the first place? It's supposed to be fun, not hyper realistic.
  7. Mecha GB

    If I can, I'd join. I could go for a mech or two on my shelf.
  8. F/A-37 Talon from STEALTH

    The movie makers didn't design it to be realistic. They designed it to look cool, and it does look cool. I find it no more "offensively stupid" than any other movie aircraft out there. Though I will agree that with the amount of CGI in that movie, the lack of moving control surfaces was rather crappy.
  9. Creating an F-15 Silent Eagle?

    Quoted for total agreement.
  10. F/A-37 Talon from STEALTH

    Meh, I enjoyed the movie, and I like the aircraft. Is it stealthy? Hell no. Plausible? I really doubt it. Entertaining for 2 hours? I sure think so. Price is a bit steep, but I'd probably still get it if/when I could afford it.
  11. A Warning to Moai Vincent

    I'm suddenly craving breaded and fried octopus. Anyone else want some?
  12. Revell 1/72 Super Hornet question...

    Yeah, the 1/48 version is the same way.
  13. Solar galleon-kitbash+scratchbuilt

    Whoa! That's awesome! How do you do those fine, raised rivets?
  14. OT - Hottest 100 songs of all time

    They love Radiohead. I saw like 4 Radiohead songs on that list. Can't say I agree, but okay.
  15. Scythe-class Main Battle Cruiser

    Long time, no update! Unfortunately, there's not much to say about this at the moment. Scribing continues, and I've got both halves of the blade glued together. But, I apparently made a measurement mishap and the leading edge doesn't line up perfectly <_<. However, I didn't notice this until after I glued on a strip of styrene to close up the blade. :woo: Now, I've got to cut that off, sand the edges, and make sure that everything's all lined up. Sorry, no pics, but I wanted to bump this and add a little update. EDIT: 3000th post, WHOO!
