Re: new C-27J Spartans go to "Boneyard"

I saw the Spartan in Afghanistan last year. The Army pushed the program. Kind of a FOB Hopper to go places where the C-130 wouldn't fit. USAF would like to get out of the Tactical mission, and the Army can't afford to take over the program. I don't think it's as much pork as it is a matter of contra...

Re: 1/18 British Cromwell

I though about it when it first came out. I think the turret is actually 1/16. didn't scale out so I dropped the idea.

Re: Salvage Yard

My daughter's cat just knocked my Huff off the table.

Does anybody have a front windscreen for a 21st Century F-86?

Or a broken one (with an intact windscreen) for sale?

Re: 1/48 Wings of Glory P-40 (Texas Longhorn)

These showed up in our local Walmart on Xmas eve. There was only a small number so I grabbed one. I went back yesterday to get something for the kid, and there were 16 on the shelf. Slow distribution to our local WM is normal, but at least all three models have made it to Hinesville so far. Wonder w...

Re: Paint removal from plastic models

I can't remember the name of the product, but it's a purple engine cleaner degreaser you can get at Walmart. I submerge the old kits in it for a couple of days, and them scrub them clean. It works fairly well, though some of the tougher paint still stick in the cracks and fine details. Break fluid i...

Re: Jnewboy Customs ~ Flak Panzer Christmas

Thanks! I had know about a few of the purpose built versions.

I find the field modifications very interesting. It is especially facinating to look at battle of Berlin pictures, there are all kind of one-off scattered throughout the record.

Re: 1:18 BBI Little Bird 61 $ Ebay

It's getting harder to find things cheap on ebay. These kind of post show how volitile the market is. It's the beauty of capitalism. Price is based on value. the seller puts a value on his product, and the customer then decides if that price is of equal value to his desire to have it. I miss out on ...
