  1. I’ve got two ikea Billy bookcases. I put the glass doors on it and use the glass shelves. I can fit 4 single engine 1/48 WW 2 fighters per shelf. Cold War fighters I can do 2 per shelf and have room for something smaller (think F-4, F-102, F-8 size). Works well for my 1/1000 start trek builds and various other sci-fi kits. Also fits long and narrow well so would be good for ships, so it should fit my WW2 1/350 shop kits. Something as big as a 1/48 Medium bomber will not fit with the doors on. Also fits my 1/8 and 1/6 figures. I do want to find another case to supplement it so I can put some 1/48 WW2 medium bombers and larger fighters, it won’t fit my 1/48 YF-23. But for the bulk of what I build it works great. Here’s a pic from when I recently moved it from one room to another and was setting up everything again. I can’t get the pic to rotate 😝
  2. How critical is the subtype? Revell makes a G-10 that is a decent kit. Engraved panel lines, fits well, and is relatively inexpensive.
  3. I’ve got a Hasegawa G, and an Academy B, I hope to get a ZM S, the rest of the phantom stash is Esci and Monogram. Too many schemes I want to do to spend $$$ on every one!
  4. Some guys will buy projects or partially built models. Just list them for free, buyer pays shipping or for a few bucks, you might get a buyer!
  5. Accurate miniatures came and went 2-3 times. First ownsership was all original releases, the black boxes. They sold out to another group which Included a few of the original people involved if I recall correctly . The second ownership group finished the vindicator tooling and reissued kits in the white/yellow boxes. They also reissued kits from other manufacturers including some old monogram kits, the Eduard P-39, Special Hobby Super Corsair, And Pro modeler Helldiver.
  6. Interesting paper:https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=3561560
  7. SARS and MERS have significantly higher fatality rates than COVID-19 but are less contagious. COVID-19 is more infectious — the underlying SARS-CoV-2 virus spreads more easily among people, but has a much lower fatality rate, however because it spreads so easily it is leading to greater case numbers. Despite the lower case fatality rate, the overall number of deaths from COVID-19 far outweighs that from SARS or MERS. There have been no cases of SARS for over a decade. But MERS is an ongoing concern.
  8. I would think it’s academy, they’ve reissued the B-47 and B-58...I’ve got one of each release, can’t see buying another even in 1”144 it’s huge
