  1. The Goodyear blimp, in its current configuration is 192 feet in length. Measure the length of the model and, as my 7th grade teacher said, "do the math".
  2. Just in communication with Gator Glue. GG is an acrylic-based glue that is often used to attach clear parts or replace small window glass in airplanes, ships, etc. Kenny, the proprietor/owner/creator, of this glue has indicated that he will cease the manufacture of this excellent glue. It seems that the damage and devastation for this season's hurricanes are at fault. You might want to visit your LHS (local hobby shop) TODAY and procure a couple of bottles of this excellent product while it is still available.
  3. Wow! That's a great deal of high caliber work! I'm looking forward to pics of the completed diorama.
  4. Another outstanding individual cut down before his time. A great loss.
  5. Bob, Well done, well said. Looking forward to making a reservation on Wednesday.
  6. I did a little googling and found this:" In most cases, your tolls and service fees will be charged to the credit card used to rent the vehicle. Most rental car agencies use third-party companies to manage toll charges for their vehicles, including Rent-A-Toll, Highway Toll Administration, and PlatePass. If you expect to travel on a toll road, ask your rental car agency ahead of time for their policies and procedures for collecting tolls. Fees and other policies vary from one rental agency to another." To see more go to https://www.txtag.org/en/about/faq_rental.shtml Also, if you a
  7. One comment I would add that this point is that the event is in San Marcos, Texas. We recommend that you fly into Austin. The convention is providing sprinter vans to transport attendees from the Austin airport to San Marcos. Take a look at Google Maps. If you are driving in from the north there is a toll road that bypasses Austin. It's marked as "130". Traffic in Austin can be time consuming and frustrating, so if you don't mind paying out some money, "130" will avoid that traffic. The posted speed limit for much of "130" is 80mph. One does not stop at toll booths but do expect a bill i
  8. Contact registrar.nats2020@gmail.com. Provide the name as you wish it to read on the Name Badge. Or at the convention when you check in inform the volunteer that you wish to have a Name Badge for your wife, and provide the name as you wish it to appear. A Name Badge can be printed out for you onsite.
  9. Just a reminder that ModelFiesta 39 is approaching (Feb 15th) and that we are, once again, offering the opportunity for those entering the contest to pre-register their model entries. Go to the website (http://www.alamosquadron.com/) and click on ModelFiesta, then go to the information regarding registration forms and paperwork. You only need to submit two forms (although that might be more that just two pieces of paper.) 1. List all of your entries on the Model Registration Summary Form. 2. List each individual entry on its own Individ
  10. Thanks Bryan. That corroborates research I've done, but that nose cone had me confused. I have found that the "silver backpack" is actually a "hatch" or "door" to an unknown space ship. Not going to try and build the original models as I don't have all the parts but I can see these scraps being incorporated into a kit bash.
  11. Any idea as to which kit(s) these parts might go to? Lindberg and Strombecker had a series of space ships that used parts similar to these. Note that the parts are molded in silver and white.
  12. Hope to have it finished by year's end. I'll post some pics when completed.
