  1. That's a pretty good set of definitions. Will it work, Pete?

    With or without heels? Nice figures. How many parts?
  3. Did we really have those sippy style coffee lids in 77? Is the cup from Caribou? I gotta gig you for something, Dak! Nice build
  4. This link has a film from the USAAC with 9 minutes of converted B&W film footage. The original film was color, but was transferred to B&W for mass production and distribution, but I haven't found the original footage online. Most of the footage shows unfaded paint that has been lightly chipped in a few areas. Unfortunately, the yellow cowl rings from the 1944 movie weren't really there. The aircraft were all fairly new and went thru modifications at Mid Continent in Feb 42 and final mods at Sacramento between March 27-31 which may explain their fresh look, as they'd only been used in trying at Eglin for about 3 weeks. HTH, James
  5. They are called "bloomers", and we use the same tissue technique on larger models. For 1/700, I've seen people use tape to protect the plastic and use putty to build up the bloomers.
  6. One year? Why once a year? We could run an experiment in the Journal: a quick survey with a QR code (and a big survey button at the top of each page on the website)... the number of responses to a series of short single-subject surveys might tell us how many people actually pay attention. Want to improve participation? Offer a $1 discount on membership renewal for each survey completed after 4 or 5 and see if the number of respondents increases.
  7. I couldn't get thru on my laptop, but my tablet worked fine... which was totally weird.
  8. Len, I also tried to book 2-5, not 6th, and the system wouldn't let me. I've gone backtwice to change the date to a Saturday checkout (not Sunday) and it still won't allow me to change it. I figure this is a Hilton issue dealing with the room block, they need to be a little more flexible - just like they were in 19 when I book for the cancelled 20 event.
  9. Good BBQ would sell more banquet tickets. Have you considered having food trucks roll up during the day? Several local shows have started doing this to rave reviews. There's not much nearby, and "up the road" and/or "across" the interstate involves a 2 mile drive which will come as a surprise to those not accustomed to one-way frontage roads, and the u-turn lanes before the lights will frustrate some.
  10. Mike, that just means that the non-block rooms are gone or on hold for special rewards members.
  11. They'd have to build locks at the various lakes on the river, too! They could always put her next to the Lex
  12. Ed, I know it's an airplane so you're forgiven. It's a Lockheed Jetstar VC-140B ... but that wouldn't stop Boeing from trying to collect trademark fees!! And don't forget about stuff in Houston: JSC & the USS Texas (refit might be finished by next summer) but it'd be neat to see her out of the water, too.
  13. Wah... can't please everybody. And what does the University have to do with this?! Does that mean we can't ever do a national in Ohio again or Alabama? (Lots of people hate the Tide and Buckeyes) Keep track of those who a whining and see if they register
