  1. Rich, cut them free first, then apply some thin CA only to the area where you want to drill, let dry, then drill. The thin CA will hold the wood fibers together. I have used this trick in wood carving when I have to carve something like deer antlers on a figure.
  2. Gee, Denis, I wonder how they would classify the bi-planes at the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome across the Hudson River from me. Most are 1916 vintage , Nieuwport, Sopwith Camel, Bleriot, etc -all flyable
  3. I believe that is the Nine O Nine B17, from photos it appears to be destroyed.
  4. In September 2008 the Collings Foundation flew their B17, B24, and B25 aircraft into Stewart Airport in Newburgh N, here's photos from that day. B17 nose art and cockpit instrument closture
  5. Here you go Denis. One B36 Stratofortress model- Sorry for the angle but I am afraid to remove it for fear of something else falling off.
  6. Denis, have you checked out the Collings Foundation Nine O Nine B 17. It was in Nashua two days ago.
  7. Do you mean the Monogram B-36 Stratofortress kit? For its time it was the largest aircraft model with a wingspan of about 36-39 inches. I built one from that kit, it hangs from the rafters in my cellar model shop. I'll see if I can find some photos of it. It has gotten pretty dirty and dusty over the eons. And the decals are starting to fall off.
  8. They are the same. See following https://forum.woodcarvingillustrated.com/forum/woodcarving-illustrated/woodcarving/carving-wood-materials/26746-limewood-vs-basswood https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tilia#Romantic_symbol
  9. Doesn't matter, you can still use it, just be careful to keep your antivirus up to date. I'm still running XP with no issues including no security issues. My wife's Win 7 system has not received any updates since MS tricked the world into installing the Win 10 upgrade. Backing the upgrade off screwed up the update installer and now you cannot even manually install updates. Nor can we restore it to the last backup point. So her laptop will remain Win 7 and mine will remain XP until the hardware becomes unrepairable. Then I will replace both of them with an Abacus
  10. There probably are a few parcels left on Monadnock ! Not quite so far away ! Great mountains views too !
  11. There is a way to preview a post. In the reply window, top row of window, on the extreme right side there is an icon that looks like a page with the top right corner folded over. Click this icon to preview the post, to close the preview click the black circle with the X in upper right corner. Kevin, to see if someone got your PM, at the top of the page there is a header with a world globe and two conversation icons next to it. Click on the conversation icons to see your PMs.
  12. I have had good results using the rubber plumbing connectors shown below to adapt different diameters to my vacuum cleaner
  13. It got stuck in an atmospheric traffic jam between two High's.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
