Re: FOV rouses itself from slumber...!!!

Today's Motorpool email says FOV is releasing 1/200 aircraft carrier dioramas.

Re: FOV 1/16 King Tiger turret basket?

GROCKWOOD:

I have a video camera I got as a gift which has lousy quality (see the photo I posted earlier of the 2 parts that fell off). I might experiment to see if I can improve the quality, but in the past, all the photos were very fuzzy.

Re: FOV 1/16 King Tiger turret basket?

Re: MIDWAY movie

The scene involving the Bruno character getting in the Dauntless and shooting down the kamikaze bomber as it was about to hit the Enterprise and then being tossed overboard after being captured is real---it's also in one of WW II History Channel documentaries about The Enterprise in WW II. I'm glad ...

Re: MIDWAY movie

I just saw MIDWAY and I was disappointed. I thought if the movie had removed the Pearl Harbor and Doolittle raid, it could have spent more time building up suspense for the Battle of Midway itself. The Charlton Heston movie did a good job of telling the story building up to the Battle of Midway, but...
