  1. That's a fair point Geoff. But as much as I love/loved this site in the past my very limited funds would prohibit me from doing that. I do understand that this website used to be his pride and joy and if being burnt out IS the issue that's more than understandable. Its just too bad so many of these incredible modeling sites have gone the way of the dodo the same way brick and mortar hobby shops have. I know of several that are no longer available that I used to enjoy tremendously and would love to access again. Its too bad there's not a way to do one of two things. ONE make this website work b

  4. Chinese Eastern Airliner down. 132 souls aboard. No words on casualties as of yet. https://www.yahoo.com/news/state-media-report-crash-chinese-082919657.html

  9. I was wondering the same thing. I'm wondering if they're going out of business. I purchased some tracky thingies not sure what's happening. I guess we'll find out
  10. Johnny, I wil have to say I hear you and I kinda agree with you, but how safe is rock climbing? How safe is paragliding? How safe is surfing? I get it, I do. I want them grounded for a different reason. I don't want anymore of these precious aircraft to be lost. Not just he people. But for preserving the history of it. ONE THE OTHER hand I LOVE Seeing them fly and if I had enough money to go up in one of them I'D JUMP at the opportunity.. Not that I'd fit in them.
