  1. That's neat. Really like the diorama you did as well. Eric
  2. My thoughts as to the reason some regionals are two days and some are one is the cost of renting the venue, cost of a hotel room (and if they can get a discount for the rooms) and what there is to do in the area. I know at my old club in the bay area of California it was really hard to find a venue that didn't break the bank for the club just for our one day contest. I realize that California is not the normal for costs but still that's the main issue for clubs. Also if there is nothing to do outside hanging around a contest for 2 days I would just go for 1 day. Yes, you can say there are seminars but still if none interest me then I won't go for 2 days. There is also the issue of getting enough volunteers to run a 2 day contest. I've only been to one contest in the area I currently live in but still at that one they were still having trouble finding enough people to judge the contest. I joined a team so we had 3 people but at times had only 2 because of one person being entered in a category we had to judge. Just my two cents. Eric
  3. I tried it once but left residue on the kit when I removed it. Eric
  4. Thanks all, looks like I save 6 bucks. Eric
  5. A member of my local club mentioned this product. Found it at a local gaming store but at $6 for a small container thought I would check if anyone else had an opinion about it. Thanks, Eric
  6. According to Wikipedia Marvel comics gained the trademark in the late sixties. According to the timeline there has been a number of female Captain Marvels in the history of the series. Eric
  7. Never mind. Should have looked at the profiles in the book. Found it there. Eric
  8. Started reading Chris's new book on the 362nd fighter group. Had a photo of Jim Ashford's P-47 Okole Maluna. Remembered that there was a set of decals for this aircraft in the Journal. Found the decals but no drawings. Unfortunately I downsized my library when I moved and gave all my back issues of the Journal to members in my club. Wondering if someone could scan the article and any drawings for me. I think it was like Volume 7 of the Journal. Thanks, Eric
  9. I am working on Hobbycraft's kit of the F-89 and their decals don't include any of the placards or step markings. Anyone have a sheet from Revell's kit they don't need? Eric
  10. I mainly use Tamiya paints with some enamels and trying to figure out when it's too cold to airbrush them. Just moved to Wisconsin from California. During the winters in CA could still get warm (around 60) enough days that I could keep going on projects. So far in Oct. had a few days 60 or above but it's starting to stay below 60. I know I'm not going to try to airbrush below 40 but would above 50 still work? Thanks, Eric
  11. Picked up the 15 x 20 paint booth and just put it together. Looks like I'm going to need an extra light source. The product description says an under the cabin light fixture can be fitted. Has anyone done this and how did you mount it. Thanks, Eric
  12. Thinking about buy the 15 x 20 standard paint booth from Micro Mark. Any own one and have a opinion about it. Thanks, Eric
  13. Filled out the change of address form but when I hit submit the next page that comes up shows a box with what looks like problems with the form. Not sure if the form is working. Is their an e-mail I can send a change of address to just to be sure. Eric
  14. This might sound like sacrilege to some but I had all my issues since I started in 1975 as well as some earlier issues I had picked up along the way. Wife and I are planning on moving across the US and I sat down to pack them up. As I started going thru them I realized that I had not looked at any of the old issues of Quarterly, Update or the Journal in at least 5 years. Decided I didn't need to take the cross country if I wasn't using them, so I took them to my IPMS club and let anyone who wanted them have them. Also doing the same thing with my old AMPS Boresight, MMiR and Fine Scale Modeler magazines I had. Never really realize how much room they took up. Eric
