  1. I consider the price of the Raffle tickets to be a "contribution" to the financial success of the event. I don't expect the host club to take any action on my behalf. I enjoyed the event and plan on attending the event next year. Called Stevens Int., which is the importer for Trumpy kits. The staffer with whom I spoke said that Stevens did not have any replacement parts for this particular kit due to its age. She also asked where I bought the kit. I wasn't going to lie to her so I told her that it was a raffle item at a local show. She said that Stevens replaced parts, if supplies we
  2. I recently won a Raffle prize....the Trumpeter 32nd TBM-3 Avenger. Wow! Nice! When I returned home from the show where I won the kit I found that the windscreen was cracked into two pieces. If you happen to have this kit and, perhaps the part inventory is not complete, or there is damage to parts other than the windscreen, you might consider reaching out to me regarding your mint condition windscreen, or even the entire runner for the clear parts. I really, Really, REALLY don't want to attempt to vacuform a replacement.
  3. "Howdy" from Texas, Rudolfo! Hope you can make it to the Vegas show this summer.
  4. Thanks Dave. I'll give them a chance to wake up and get to work (or their workspace at home) and contact them.
  5. When will the list of candidates for all offices be posted on the IPMS Forum? That would allow members to ask questions of the candidates When will voting begin? When does voting close?
  6. I need to replace the windscreen, part #24 on the Trumpeter 32nd TBM-3 Avenger kit, kit # 2234. Any suggestions?
  7. This is the old Academy 32nd scale Nieuport 17. Not a very good kit, and certainly not one of my better efforts, but it was an enjoyable build.
  8. Can someone provide the name of the hotel/convention center which served as home base for the 2006 Convention in K.C.?
  9. Thanks for all the hard work you do to keep the website up and running!
  10. To quote Mr. Ed, "Time Flies", and so do all the great aircraft models pictured above! Well done!
  11. You've got SKILLS! The snow looks outstanding, face looks great and the eyes are very good. I particularly like the shadows on the jacket.
  12. 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".
  13. 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.
  14. Wow! That's a great deal of high caliber work! I'm looking forward to pics of the completed diorama.
  15. Another outstanding individual cut down before his time. A great loss.
  16. Bob, Well done, well said. Looking forward to making a reservation on Wednesday.
  17. 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
  18. 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
