Correct. They have same solution in the Mig-31 kit, too. Nice approach.

Is there an arbitrary limit of page numbers for a thread on this site?  

 

Funny thing: I thought there was, that it was 200 and that this was the reason everyone kept talking about it and rooting for it to hit 200; so that it would crawl off and die a quiet death!

Die? Surely you jest. This is the hottest page on the interwebs. It dies and the whole system crumbles.

It may slow down a bit, but once the kit is released you'll really see the hair flying here. Oh what fun it shall be. Let us just try to play nice and we can all have a jolly good time, i.e. the hair flying should be your own and self inflicted. If you don't I will be forced to subject you to more encabulator technical descriptions. These and The Holy Grail are guaranteed to halt all rational thought in its tracks. :thumbsup2:

Interestingly the same people that kept coming back with the same "errors" again and again, have this time spent almost 2 pages trying to ridicule the whole thing, making practically unreadable for any newcomers.

 

Niiiice... Keep on.

This goes much beyond my ability to understand the English language, while being a rather mediocre non native English speaker...

(Usually in such situations I smile politely... And everyone that knows me understands that I don't have a clue...)

Sorry Dio. The Encabulator was a fictitious device first written about  in 1944 by a British graduate student. Later GE wrote a technical data sheet which they actually inserted into one of their manuals. Since then there have been a few video spoofs that had actors describing the encabulator using much of the techno babble from the original description written back in '44. Here's the original video done by General Motors (I think):

One done by Chrysler:

And the Retro Encacbulator done by Rockwell:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RXJKdh1KZ0w

There have been a few other videos, notably a Micro Encabulator. All with an actor describing the device very straight faced and using an incredible amount of nonsensical technobabble.  Here's a transcript of the Rockwell video's script:

Edit: I found another one that is really good. The Retro-Proto-Turbo Encabulator!!

Sorry, didn't realize English wasn't your first language. I've deleted my initial comment. It's all good brother.

Steampunk HOTAS ?

No, it's the oscillation overthruster which replaced the encabulator on subsequent models.

Q:

Please, could any of the thread participants give a comment on the reliability of the line drawings in Danny Coremann´s "Uncovering the Grumman F-14...."  ?
