Didn't they just "retire" the last remaining Vulcan? Thought I saw something on TV (hell, maybe here) that was showing her last flight?
Yes - no fly nomore. Shame because the sound of a Vulcan is bloody marvelous  O0

Yeah Vulcan! One of my favourite planes of that era.  O0

That 1/48 Phantom sounds sweet too. Get it!
I really wanted to - it looked great and a bit of a steal.

This was it

Was the other half full of lesbian vampires?

Aren't all models lesbian vampires?

Wish my LHS had a better selection of armor. He has planes coming out of his ass, but not enough armor.

Hate buying online but if the selection isn't at the shop, my wallet wants what it wants (and it's a damn near 20 minute drive....GAWD, I'm a lazy bastich)

Twenty models, JD?

That's not a stash, that's an intervention.

Though dammit, now I really want to try putting that Akagi model together. Your Vulcan looks super sweet!

This thing is MASSIVE





Unfortunately, a "dry fit" has shown this is going to be a challenging build. It's not snapping together where it should, kind of looking like it's warped in places.

It'll take alot of TLC I think.

you bought an Airfix kit....
Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

Going to be a nice build JD. Looking forward to this one.

I always think of JD when I see ads for this 1/48 DKM U-boat Type VIIC U-552. It's on sale for $495 US. And may require an addition to the house.  O0
