  1. 14th FS Vipers Way Cool Video 2017

    23 years? There's no way Sabotage is 23 ye.... oh. ...and now I'm down a Wikipedia hole of 1994 in music.
  2. Drill bits

    Carbide is brittle, and prone to breakage. High speed steel is more robust, but they usually only go down to .3mm. So ultimately, it's either 'use a bigger bit' or 'put up with the breakage'. You can alleviate some of the problems by mounting the bits in a drill press, since that's how they're designed to be used (well, in a mill, but close enough). They're reasonably robust under direct, vertical load; it's when you get any lateral load that they'll snap, so if you can drill straight down and straight up, you'll do better. And since they've got a standard 1/8" shank, they're easy to mount. But with a .1mm bit, basically *any* lateral load will snap the bit, so even in a drill press, you'll still break them frequently. So again, you're back to either putting up with it, or using a larger HSS bit.
  3. Photobucket Fix?

    Counterpoint: Taking your files off Photobucket allows them to reduce server space and saves them money on overhead. If you're *really* mad at PB, you should max out your account. Don't actually use it to post photos, but make them maintain the architecture to host them.

  5. Good to hear. (sorta - I've got a D that I'd be willing to let go if the price shot through the roof ;)) Don't buy the missile set though. Assuming it's the same as the F-14D missiles (I can't imagine they'd re-tool them), they're pretty mediocre. Definitely not worth the money.
  6. photobucket fix

    Awesome. Although I suspect this will only be a temporary fix, until Photobucket plug the loophole, but it's great while it lasts.
  7. Aviation Art Su-33 1/48

    Hence, the actual diameter would be 4'. Designers tend to like round numbers, so a 4' exhaust kind of jumped out at me (as opposed to 25.4166666667mm)
  8. Aviation Art Su-33 1/48

    Really? That's surprising. I'd have thought the Flanker would be designed in metric, not imperial.
  9. I sure am glad that this thread hasn't been derailed with off-topic wish lists, as Haneto and Gabor requested. :)

    Which MiG-21? It varied by type.
  11. Dragon Star Wars models.

    That's a calculation you do before you start on a project. Especially for an established manufacturer like Dragon, they'll have a decent feel for what it will take to bring a subject to market and whether a project is likely to succeed at that price. Could be there was less distributor interest than expected when they brought it to the Toy Fairs, but I really doubt that they developed a prototype and *then* said 'this will be too expensive'. My guess is, they didn't have a Star Wars license. That either they were negotiating for one and it fell through, leaving them unable to complete the project, or, they had hoped to leverage the prototypes into gaining a license, but it didn't pan out. Because, like you said, that would be a major investment to simply abandon for no reason. (assuming the kits HAVE been cancelled, which does seem probable)
  12. Egg Plant paint from Mr Color

    I think it looks more like an aubergine, personally.
  13. Egg Plant paint from Mr Color

    That's not Mr.Color. It's Mr.Color 40th Anniversary: So it's AVC06, not C6.

    If you don't want to hang it from the ceiling, you could hang it on a wall:
