Re: How To Make Easy Realistic Looking Tracks

It's a common mistake but once you submit to the internet and ask why those Panthers have 3 pipes on one side it is very clear. And in fact you can see the actual thing on the few running Panthers with that arrangement. The early Panthers had an issue with unburnt fuel buildup under the engine and i...

Re: How To Make Easy Realistic Looking Tracks

Now you know real track doesn't get anywhere near that rusty on a working vehicle, right?

Also, those two smaller pipes on either side of the left-hand exhaust pipe aren't exhausts. They are cool air intakes and they do not get heat oxidation like an exhaust pipe does. They keep their paint.

Re: Star Wars Combat Assault Tank

Funny how it says "theirs $49.99". That "theirs" is likely Toys'r'Us as Ollies mentioned buying out the leftovers from a recently bankrupt retail toy corporation. And from what I know about that bankruptcy is that even at 70% off retail the Star Wars toys were not moving, so Ollies got a TON of that...

Re: 1/18 Tiger II And Jagdtiger Building Instructions

The radio man's port should be skewed at an angle. It should also be in the spot shown on the model kit and not right in front of the hatch.

Re: MIDWAY movie

For an example: Wizards of the Coast, owned by Hasbro, is the company that gave us Magic the Gathering. They have become snowflakes recently and have been changing the gender of characters in the game to please the Alphabet crowd or changing artwork to be 'female-friendly' i.e., cover the female art...

Re: MIDWAY movie

The movie industry courts China not because of cheap labor but for the number of potential tickets sales that huge population represents. Involving Tencent is a way of finding access to those sales but it also involves having them guide scripts away from stepping over the party line. Star Wars and o...

Re: 21st Century 1/32 plane defects

Well, you can't really compare 21st to Corgi and the like, as like you said 21st were toy-like...because they WERE toys first and foremost. The other were geared more to the collector crowd with BBI being the low-end of that spectrum.

Re: MIDWAY movie

I think the goal is to lock us into streaming so they retain control over the media and charge for every viewing. Disney has gone so far as to announce they are locking the Marvel movies behind their own service so you can't watch them anywhere else like Hulu or Netflix.

Re: MIDWAY movie

Reviews are starting to eat it up. Apparently with all the attention to detail on costumes and CGI vehicles, they forgot to write authentic 1940's dialog. One review said it would be better watched at home with the volume off.

Re: War Park---Metal Figures and Armor, New on the Scene?

Lot of money for a panzer not to be the proper shade of gray. Has to be much darker than that.

Hope nobody sees this listing, then:

I guess it's cheaper because it doesn't have that vintage 'damaged box' look.
