  1. There are a few options https://www.chattairport.com/ground-transportation/
  2. Unless you have to pass thru Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, DFW, LA, San Francisco or the entire stretch of I-95 from Richmond to Boston.... sure! Gil - Pensacola to Key West is just about the longest single state drive there is in the continental US (A few in TX & CA are longer)
  3. This afternoon I got a call from Lindy; a call I dreaded, but knew was coming... Jim passed away peacefully this afternoon about 1pm PDT. We are diminished by his loss. I have lost one of the best friends a guy could ever hope to have.
  4. Is it the same basic setup as LaVista (Omaha)? PS - I will be available to judge Fri PM if Manny doesn't steal me first
  5. Neither the Biz Meeting nor the Bid Presentation is in the pdf schedule as of tonight
  6. Does the hotel not offer the free shuttle van anymore?
  7. The new RC3 remembers Dave, but I don't recall seeing him since 2005 or so. Perhaps some of the guys in the Birmingham club have more info.
  8. TJ Is it a secret or can we know who is bidding?
  9. Dave, The type of vehicle is "panel truck" ;} Looks kinda like a GMC to me
  10. Perhaps this will be good news in the long run, if Revell is bought by someone who sees the hobby as the main point of being in business.
  11. Roger, are you aware of the local club? They meet for lunch every Saturday at noon at Sidelines on Barrett Pkwy in Kennesaw. The club Christmas meeting is next Saturday at the usual time. I'm coming up for it from Pensacola. .. I look forward to meeting you!
  12. Looking at the website, I notice you do mostly railroad colors, which would be why I haven't seen it before. I do see that USN colors are coming. http://trucolorpaint.com/military-colors/ Are these the ship camo colors or aircraft colors? What is the formulation of your carrier? Lacquer, enamel, acrylic? TIA, James
  13. And I was kinda excited for a mo, thinking somebody had announced a "real" kit!! I assume you'll have it finished for Omaha, right Gil?
  14. I discovered Brother Sebastian years before the 2011 show, and will go again this year, too. Every. Trip. To. Omaha.
  15. MM is some of the worst enamel paint on the market. Testors bought out all of the higher quality competitors, and instead of using the superior quality formulae they then owned, killed them off. The ever-shrinking supply side of the market was answered by smaller lines showing up and presenting the community with superior products, in both the "enamel" and acrylic forms. Acryl or Vallejo? I sold Vallejo at about a 20:1 ratio Model Master or Gunze or WE Colourcoats? Around 5:1 against MM each Now we also have Mig, MRPaint, and other lines to choose from. Testors did their best to run off customers thru pride, and they succeeded.
  16. I have seen photos of these in the SWPac/Philippines that were either color or colorized which show the boats in the various Patrol Green schemes. Alaskan boats were gray. Any idea where this was taken?
  17. Yes, Nick I have now tried the Tamiya on PollyScale. I went front to back on an old F-84G fuselage half. After I got to the back (30sec?) I went to begin to remove it from the front. It was dried already and had to rub so hard that it started to rub thru the PS to the primer underneath.
  18. Is that the Vallejo product? I have used it, but was really hoping the Tamiya stuff would be Tamiya-compatabile What were they thinking?
  19. I have concluded that it cannot be applied directly to Alclad 2,Tamiya TS sprays (presumably, PS as well), Tamiya bottle paint and Testors 1/4oz and MM. I am extremely disappointed that it cannot be used with their own line of paints without a clear coat (which is another layer to fill in the panel lines) I will try PollyS leftovers and Vallejo next as I abandoned Acrylic years ago because it sucks, IMO.
  20. Discovery #2 It doesn't play well with Tamiya sprays at all
