  1. If you are doing "cash only", have change to make Dave
  2. What Gil said. Unfortunately, I was IPMS Prez when all this started mostly from one individual but we did get several complaints- for example, a model of Big Foot which was a "male" and his junk was at eye level for a child. We even had one gent send us books on pornography and were accused as a society of pandering pornography. Fun times....NOT Dave
  3. Correct. They do not care. This is such a miniscule amount of business for them, it doesn't matter. They are focusing on making money and Testors is not anywhere near the top for them. They may redo the web page or update it but who knows Dave
  4. Hi Noel: The blanket insurance helps. All you do is contact the National office with a date and venue and the insurance company issues a certificate as needed. Depends on state and location how much but we cover them. IN a normal year, there are 80-100 IPMS shows including the regional and national. Of course, we have a lot more square miles to cover than the UK too. I do remember several cases where the insurance was used too I believe Dave
  5. Get ahold of Stevens International, they are the importer of Trumpeter. Phone: 856-435-1555 Fax: 856-627-6274 Email: info@stevenshobby.com Dave
  6. Got a few figure busts after selling off a bunch From Gillman Productions and Jeff Yagher (sculptor)- Peter Cushing as Van Helsing, Christopher Lee and the Mummy and from Bladerunner- Joanna Cassidy as Zhora and Sean Young as Rachel Dave
  7. Let me look. I may have something Dave
  8. The outside needs filler of some kind. I have always ound the inside to be more challenging. Couple options- cover the intake and exhaust ends with covers. Second, a filler like Perfect Plastic Putty is also good. Add and wipe with water for a smooth seam. Might take a couple applications. Also, anything metallic will show EVERYTHING- every little scratch, nub, etc. Dave
  9. Mr. Marmo is correct- still going strong, still publishing but all digital. Which means less cost printing, more money to survive and more content with less limitations Dave
  10. Amazing Figure Modeler HAS NOT stopped making their magazine. They are going digital for several reasons. First is their loss of distribution like newstands and stores which are not open in many parts of the country. Second, is cost. Will have a new issue out soon Dave
  11. Jef V posted a great history/explanation under his Facebook page. Was very intetresting. Dave
  12. Its a little longer than 18 inches and not quite as wide but would be without the wing folds. It is very large Dave
  13. Finally, after many years, this is finished. I can say that there were not wo pieces in the entire build that fit together easily. And Trumpeter found ways to take one part and make four out of it. I will say it is a huge plane and I do love Navy schemes. Finished with Squadrons decals Dave
  14. Welcome...have a look around and enjoy! Dave
  15. I do wonder what, if anything will happen to the Lancaster. It was close or seemed to be from the mock up at the nats a couple years ago. I assume due to the detail it was going to be really expensive and like most large kits, reaches a specific audience. Time will tell. I will tell you the stuff is selling for a ridiculous price now. Dave
  16. Best way is usually to register. That gets you in all week plus seminars, etc. @$55 versus $60 for the daily for four days Dave
