I got F.M.'s 1/48 "Grumann" F11F1 Tiger
Strangely, the french apparently in all their research
managed to build a workable kit, but managed to mis-spell
the aircraft manufacturers name on every reference on the
I don't know, maybe Grumman in french is Grumann
This is definitely a multi multi multi media kit -
limited run plastic, vac canopies, resin, photo etch and
white metal. Still it looks like it will build to a nice
model with a big decal sheet.
Anyone do a build on this kit yet and find the pitfalls?
I also got the complete "Rat Patrol" television show
on DVD which was really really weird cause it was just a bunch of
disks in white disk envelopes. No box, no anything except a
bunch of DVD's that looks like they were put together on a home PC.
Well, my sweetie went to the local hobby shop and asked their advice. Since
they were previously "coached", I got the new Special Hobby P-36A. She also
found a copy of the "Spitfire Manual" at Half Price Books. She was happy
that I was happy and my gifts to her were likewise appreciated.
More than I expected; more than I deserve.
sounds corny, but my best was giving.
my sister did a lot of work with our parents in their last
years, stuff i wasn't there for, so i scrimped all year and
got her a hdtv and home theatre sound system.
just the look and happiness was very cool and warm.
i recieved a platinum membership in pcgs so i can get coins
a very good christmas.
One more night of Channukah and I think that's it on models. Corgi
diecast He 111H-22 with V-1, Forces of Valor Ju 87 with the snake and
Easy Model Corsair in postwar grey. The pre-built pre-painted trend
will be the subject of the Publisher's comments n ESM 72 9/2.
Also got a bundle of aviation magazines, all of which I already had
(DOH!) and Lynne got a '05 Chevy Malibu (full scale). Tomorrow night is
the last night of Channukah. I see a couple of packages with my name on
them that look like books. Hope that they are the latest Clive Cussler
potboiler and/or one of the SF 1906 books.
Hope that everybody got what they wanted and had great fun.
Happy new year,
mine will do a quality cd encode in less than 5 minutes.
when i started, my p1 133 took about half an hour.
instant files opening, video processes so fast it makes ya
crazy......we almost have good computers! 10 more years and
they should start being really fast.
On the old machine the thumbnail generation would have taken well over 4
hours. What I really like is how fast I can batch process the photos for
commercial CD's. That and I can have both Photoshop and CAD programs
open at the same times to redraw blueprints with no serious lag time or
