  1. Wanna see just how far things have changed? Check out Shapeways.com
  2. That begs the question; How high do gas prices have to get before forcing participants to stay home; $5.00, $6.00 a gallon? I recall asking the same question when gas flirted with $3.00 a gallon and that didn't seem to affect attendance that much. Walk-in traffic is responsible for a considerable chunk of earnings for our convention. I live in Oklahoma and prices here are a bargain compared to the rest of the country. For me, I would probably draw the line at $5.00 a gallon. It will be interesting to see what prices are when the Nats roll around. As I said, it's no wonder there are currently no bidders.
  3. I must say this is the first Lindburg SNARK I have ever seen built.
  4. I honestly can say I'm not surprised with COVID variants still bouncing around and God only knows what gas prices may be. Until the world stabilizes and Russia gets the hell out of Ukraine, I for one would be thinking long and hard before committing my chapter to such a costly endevour. Maybe the E-board should consider some "incentives" for the 2024 host chapter(s) to prime the pump. Just a thought.
  5. Sooooo nice to finally have this available! I hope someday a full catapult is offered.
  6. I wouldn't be so quick to declare a chapter "too small" to host a Nats. I would classify IPMS Metro OKC a small to medium sized chapter when we hosted the Nats in 2003. The secret to our manpower was the commitment from two other Oklahoma clubs to help us out when the big day arrived and us having qualified chairmen to pull the main load of organization.
  7. Well done! That Esso gas tanker would be a blast to weather the dickens out of.
  8. Place good quality (powerful) bear traps around where they (critters) are getting under your home. After some broken claws (fingers) and trips to the vet (emergency room), maybe they will start getting the hint and try some one else's home to invade. Also, along the path of entry, put boards with nail driven through. I would do this with any unwanted "wild scavengers".
  9. FWIW, your IPMS number will be on the card when you receive it.
  10. I have never had a problem with applicators, or ever paid for any. I use the left over ends from stretched sprue. You can make as thick (for a big drop of super glue) or thin (for a small drop) as you require. They are also excellent for spreading super glue along seams. Just use whatever thickness (glue) you need.
  11. For me, (please don't judge) as long as blatant sex of any kind is left out, I can deal with everything else. I know that's a loaded statement (such as define "blatant") which is why I refer to "me" only.
  12. I stopped advertising with them because of the crazy high prices for ad space.
  13. WOW! I wasn't aware anyone made car models in such large scale. Nicely done!
