  1. Good luck finding blueprints or even 3-views for something like this. Until something is built and flown, it's all vaporware IMO. IF you're lucky enough to get 2 concept views, you could cobble something together. This would be fairly easy, the body is roundish blo shoveled by foil. The hard part would be the service module end, but Asia isn't real yet, just have fun. I'm cobbling together a notional Lunar Gateway using ISS modules, and the 'design' has changed 3 or 4 times now!
  2. I wonder if Duke will have to click the link 700 times, once for each one he'll bring?? 😉
  3. Nick, even if that's the case, Vegas looks to be a big show! Maybe the biggest West Coast show ever. Way to go, Vegas!! And those of us who haven't booked yet (myself included) need not worry; Vega has just about the most hotel rooms of any city... there will be plenty of rooms, even if we have to drive a mile or so.
  4. Wayne was a legend and great teacher to anybody who cared to listen. Ditto to everything Nick says about him!
  5. CO2 is the way to go, even when I was in humid Atlanta! And a refill here in Pensacola for a large tank is about $12 IIRC.
  6. Ditto on all the hard work, been there & done that. Don't look at it as a cancellation; look at it as a very serious dry-run for 2023!
  7. Uh-oh ... that's a dangerous step towards GSB!!!! (it's been mooted now, but still)
  8. I, for one, have held off making the final portion for our group entry display. The rest is built and we designed it to be reusable for the foreseeable future. An item that is around $200 that may or may not be used this year (the durability of these things in storage is a potential issue) is a factor in our chapter's planning. There are two local chapters here, and one has already decided against sending that group's display entry as their chapter leadership has opted out of attendance for health reasons (the doctor said NO!) but it will hold for a year. I just might enter my contri
  9. I agree with Gil. I think our demographic being what it is (old guyz) that this may be the smallest nationals in a few decades... too many people just won't feel safe going. I'll go, and will take whatever precautions we are instructed to take. I hope the venue/hosts/USA will have plenty of masks & hand sanitizer to hand out, as there will be those who don't think about and will be required to have one to get in.

  11. No need to be embarrassed, most people don't know about that little quirk of ours. The point was that there has been a precedent for eliminating hypothetical for several years now. My favorite hypothetical that got by the judges was a purple Braniff L-1011 about 15-20 years ago, a beautifully done Hasegawa kit that should have been moved.
  12. I this age of closed museums and social distancing, the National Museum of Naval Aviation has begun a series of Facebook Live events. They stream live at 1100CT every Thursday. This week's event was about the restoration team, and was led by the museum director, Captain Gillam. https://www.facebook.com/events/3682874228405702/ Next week's event will be about the P5M Marlin and I've heard it will be led by IPMS member Kim Sheldon. (Several of us either work there or are volunteers) Check them out: https://www.facebook.com/NavalAviationMuseum
  13. Acts of God (Pandemic) - check (unless it is proven that the Chinese manipulated the virus, then it becomes an act of war, so check anyways) civil disorder - check curtailment or interruption of transportation facilities - check State Department travel advisory - check (for foreign attendees, anyway) Any other emergency of a comparable nature beyond the parties‟ control - check At one point, I believe, the EB required event insurance. If not, the only way to cancel this would be if the facility closes. Either way, it should certainly be required in the futu
  14. I fear there will not be many European vendors this year (if any) My outgoing parcels to Europe are routed thru Miami, where there is now a single flight to all of Europe a day. All have been stuck since late February, and I am warning customers of the delay. The transportation simply does not exist for our International friends to get here. IAH has single flights to Frankfurt & Doha now DFW has single flights to Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Heathrow & Paris 6 planes a day to/from Texas, when there were about 25 at the first of the year. Even if one is lucky enough to
  15. Ships did away with hypothetical years ago. A planned, but never executed variant or even a totally fictional watercraft, goes into the category it would otherwise belong to
