    Julius is back!

    There's a guy in Connecticut who built a Fletcher Classs Destroyer he could sit in, and go out on the lake, powered with DC motors. It was the size of a large Canoe. He got in trouble as he installed Carbide Cannons, and they give out quite a boom. Scared a lot of people. That was many years...

    Bandai RG 1/144th Wing Gundam Zero EW

    It's amazing the way these models articulate. Having your nuts by your wings is as good as a place as any other, I guess. :)

    Felix Silla is being transferred to hospice today after a long struggle with pancreatic cancer

    He's at peace now. That's a painful way to go, but he feels that no more. :)

    New to group.

    Welcome to Zealot. Nice to have you aboard. I am sure someone can help you. There are ways to change .pdo's to .pdf's then extract the pictures as jpegs. I forgot the process, but I'm sure someone here remembers. I don't work with or build Pepakura models myself, but many here do. ...

    Dr Tetrodes attempt at Grey Hunters figure.

    What part made you quit? You seem to have done the hardest parts. I can understand when you just run out of steam on a project. I feel that way about my roof! :)

    Tabs are the bane of model building. People should avoid them at all costs. That model looks fantastic!! ;)

    Vintage KeilKraft Balsa Wood Models Available Again

    You are the only other person I have ever heard do this. I have a small home, but I have a "Great Room" concept, so the kitchen living room combo gives me a 24'x24' foot room. That gave me a great size for making a small plane with the above method I mentioned. Being able to control the...

    Spaceagent-9 2017 build pic threads

    I was wondering if you built this model. This model needs a lot of careful fitment to look good, otherwise it looks like one of those "almost got it" models, as there are usually huge seams and ill fitting parts. RocketmanTan tends to bang out his models. This gets some unusual models out...
