It couldn't be more anachronistic than the movie "Pearl Harbor".

What was the name of that movie where a modern US Navy aircraft carrier goes through a time warp and finds itself in the Pacific on December 7th, 1941?

with the amazing accuracy of History channel thrown in? For that matter, I wouldn't be surprised to see it on History channel, in a triple feature with Pearl Harbor and Midway,between repeats of Ax- men, Ice Road Truckers,and the latest breakthroughs in the search for bigfoot ;)

oh yeah, but to a 10 year old boy, the SciFi channel monster movies are the best ever. Can we add "The Longest Day" to your list? Way too hard to listen to 3 hours of speeches. Love the scenes on the beach where there are roughly 100 soldiers on the beach. Also about 4995 ships short of the 5000 used in the invasion.

: : Will this be down to sci-fi channels usual high standards? Perhaps : Hey, now, it isn't "up to standards" unless "the Lou" is in it. Where did he go, anyway? : : with the amazing accuracy of History channel thrown in? : What is wrong with the History Channel that the mute button can fix? : : For that matter, I wouldn't be surprised to see it on History channel, : in a triple feature with Pearl Harbor and Midway,between repeats of Ax- : men, Ice Road Truckers,and the latest breakthroughs in the search for : bigfoot ;) : Hey, now, IRT and Axmen is interesting. I have to say, however, that Ax is very disappointing when it comes down to the creativity of their swearing. Perhaps there is something to be said for a 5th grade education...
But, in all seriousness, I have noticed that the milk I buy is no longer in plastic, but back in cardboard. Apparently it is cheaper to make cardboard containers than plastic ones. Which is fine with me, I would prefer my milk avoid as much light as possible. My beer, too...

the premise was so old and hacknyed i didn't bother. i've read too much scifi. so it's very hard to attract my attention. most of this stuff i could have written in my sleep. what made this one stand out?

I haven't seen any milk in cardboard cartons, but I buy a gallon at a time. It's still plastic everywhere I shop.

I have another diorama idea which features a Zero. I have a book on the Pearl Harbor attack. There was an incident for which no photo is available, but someone did a drawing of. An element of Zeros strafed Honululu airport and a Hawaian Airlines DC-3 loading passengers at the terminal.
Another fascinating thing about the attack, which was verified as true, was that the first Zero started a fire in the DC-3 cockpit, but the second Zero, also strafing the front of the plane, hit a CO2 extinquisher, which then put the fire out!
I am intending to do the diorama in 1:144 so it will not be too big.

I actually like midway, but to an airplane buff like me, it's a mess. I saw it in the theater, complete with sensaround.
