  1. Lawrence, If I remember right, it was an X-acto handle with an X-acto saw blade. These are at the blades: https://www.amazon.com/Xacto-X215-Blades-15-Pkg/dp/B000BREQDO The Handle is this one: http://www.xacto.com/products/cutting-solutions/knives/detail/X3261
  2. I doubt you'll hear back from AL as form what's been posted here about them, they're bankrupt and have or are shutting down.
  3. Cabbie, What thickness of CA are you using? My hobby shop carries "super thin", "thin", "regular/medum" and something called "cap-filling" and there is a "thick". Try the "cap-filling" or one of the slow-curing CA's.
  4. Drive safely, Frank. And watch the potholes and rough spots on I-5 if that's the way you're going.
  5. Rotors do sage when they aren't spinning. Compared to the weight they haul, they're actually pretty light all things considered. When they're spinning, they go nice and straight and can actually bend a bit upwards. There's this video showing how not to do aerial refueling:
  6. I'm with Paul... Unbelievable. If you get chance, look at the Youtube channel. Pretty amazing work they're doing. Thanks for this, Frolick.

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.
