  1. Over the last couple of days, I received several goodies! The first is a "newish" Kindle 8HD reader with 32GB of memory. This is an upgrade from my 6HD. The large size will help with viewing videos. I only have a photo of the box, the kindle is in another area charging. The next are two DVDs. One I bought and the other (cat one) my wife bought me for Father's Day, it came in the mail a little late. Yes I am a Cataholic. For those interested in cats, it is a two hour story of the evolution of cats. The LOrd Of The Rings, I bought, as it is Blue Ray, and has a much better picture quality than my Extended Version disks. I just wish they would put out the extended on Blue Ray. The next two are kits I got from Model Expo, during their last sale. This is the contents of the Rucker Wagon. And the Doctor's Buggy. The long tube contains a well protected piece of brass rod.
  2. The only two forces greater than Murphy's Law, are God and Gravity, and we're not too sure about gravity!
  3. A great achievement indeed!
  4. As a continuation of the discussion earlier in this thread. I just ordered the Hagasawa 1/16th Camel kit. I'll post on the comparison of the details in the plastic and Model Airways metal parts when it arrives, some time next month. I already have the MA Camel.
  5. 1/24th, I built one.
  6. Le Rhone and Clerget Hagasawa 1/8th scale engine builds. you'll have to copy and paste two of them.
  7. Liquid plastic cement.
  8. I got the two Hagasawa engine kits. The detailing looks good, at least good enough for me. The Le Rhone 110HP The Clerget 130HP A close up of the cylinder and vale rocker arm parts.
  9. Over the last two days I received both of the Hagasawa 1/8th scale WWI rotary aircraft engines I ordered. One is a 110HP Le Rhone, to display with my 1/16th scale Model Expo DR.1 Fokker Triplane kit, the other is a 130HP Clerget, for display with a 1/16th Sopwith Camel kit. The Germans used a clone of the Le Rhone for the Triplane. The kit is the German version. The 110HP Le Rhone The Clerget I had originally purchased a 1/6th scale 80HP Le Rhone engine to display with the DR.1, but found out later that the two engines looked much different, the 80HP has the push rods in front of the cylinders, and the 110HP had them at the back, ditto the exhaust manifold. The 80HP Le Rhone
  10. I too, am a Moldholic! I recently cataloged my ship kits, and decided I have to reach about the age of 110, to even come close to building them all, and that is just the nautical subject models!
  11. Is that the AK 259 REALISTIC WOOD EFFECTS , book?
  12. One source I found, said that the Germans would reuse Le Rhones in the DR.1, if they captured any. Similar to your post.
  13. I broke down and bought one the Hagasawa Le Rhones. Should be here next week. Haven't decided whether to keep or resell the Williams Brothers 80HP model. When the 110HP arrives, I'll post some pictures of the parts. I also bought one of there Camel engines, its coming from Canada.
  14. Enjoy your vacation!
  15. Cats are the perfect embodiment of the saying "It is better to beg forgiveness, that risk being denied permission." Of course, it is beneath their dignity to actually beg, its the thought that counts.
