  1. Nice, nice, nice. The figures -- colors and clothing -- make it a great diorama.
  2. You got the Post Office to answer their phone ... at all! How did you even get the phone number? Impossible round here.
  3. I like. I'm starting the Tamiya kit and your work strengthens my resolve.
  4. I do the folding thing too. I tear the sheets, which is good enough for paper that is due for the trash anyway.
  5. Just successfully disputed a partial credit card charge. An online hobby shop indicated product was in stock, accepted payment for a multi-item order, immediately notified me that three items were "backordered" and would be sent upon receipt, and did not respond to several emails asking for a refund for the items which were paid for but were not in stock. After nearly six weeks, I told the shop I was disputing the charge -- no response. So I did. And got my money back.
  6. Really sorry to hear about your tribulations. Lights, cameras, sirens, and alarms can be deterrents. Our local police have basically stopped responding to burglary alarms. I know folks who've reported response (if at all) times of over five hours. More recently, the PD has announced that it will take burglary reports, but will not respond to most alarms -- which have to be registered and require a fee. Now I have two friends who have hired private, armed security services.
  7. Before trying this, I'd check on local laws. There can be some serious legal issues with this approach.
  8. Don't know when the picture of the Russians was taken. But, if it was long enough ago, and they were Soviets, they probably earned most of them. The Soviets loved to hand out medals, but during the Great Patriotic War, the Russians who had only a few medals were often the ones who didn't make it.
  9. From the 2021 National Contest Rules (underlined italics for emphasis): II. CONTEST DEFINITIONS AND JUDGING 1. Judging. Models will be judged for skill in construction, finish, realism, and scope of effort; accuracy may be used as criteria for determining final ranking for similar model subjects. In short, accuracy is a final ranking criterion or a tie breaker. I encourage all to read the rules. Though not germane to this discussion, I really encourage all to read the category descriptions.
  10. Your flesh work is remarkable. Incredible blends.
  11. Not my Charlie Brown, but an imaginative speculation. Caught my attention.
  12. Thulsa Doom. Long time since I've been reminded of him ... and Conan, of course. Nice work.
  13. Highlander

    Ep. 4 Leia

    Nice makeup on the face. Well done.
  14. Great sculpt, great painting. The eyes really carry it off.
  15. Lot of animation in the face. Good work.
  16. Particularly like the paratrooper.
  17. Impressive sheer fabric.
  18. Great Quasimodo. Brings back memories.
  19. Agree. OOB and GSB have been the bone that the IPMS dog has worried for years now. Looks like GSB is nowhere on the horizon, but the OOB issue is constant, fueled by manufacturers who, over the years, put more and more in the box.
  20. One could make an argument for that. One could make a better argument if one dropped the adverb "VERY". One could make an excellent argument if one replaced "...in any form..." with " ... hardly at all...".
