Well look, I already told you! I deal with the customers so the engineers don't have to! I have people skills! I am good at dealing with people! Can't you understand that? What is wrong with you people?

Here’s a quote from Reuters about the latest SpaceX launch: NASA and Elon Musk’s commercial rocket company SpaceX launched a new four-astronaut team on a flight to the International Space Station on Friday, the first crew ever propelled into orbit by a rocket booster recycled from a previous spaceflight. Damn. Apparently, the space shuttle was

I do, from time to time, get political on this blog. My goal is not to stir up a rowdy debate. Anyone who seriously disagrees with me is welcome to leave, and may be politely banned by the Fickle Finger of Fate. But I MAY get political, because it’s my blog and I have a

I’ve been watching the mini-series “Atlantic Crossing” and it’s been causing me to have some real, feelings deep in my heart. I think it’s called “heart burn.” When I’m not fuming over some historical anachronism, I’m wondering if the Norwegian is as “modern” as the American English or if they, at least, got that right.

“Practice! Practice! Practice!” No– seriously. How do you climb up into the cockpit of a P-51 Mustang of WWII fame and so on? (This is important for “weathering” and All Good Boys Weather Fine in Internet Land). Do you climb up on the wing from behind, at the root, and then into the cockpit, as

Dammit. I’m adding a little note here to deal with something that I have had just about enough of… I’m doing it. I’m doing it… I’M DRAWING A LINE IN THE SAND!! Oh wait… I am tired of hearing/seeing the expression “drawing a line in the sand.” I hate, hate, hate this expression. It comes

The image which I hope is appearing on this page is a Revell box top that never was. It’s something I made putting a Jack Leynnwood painting onto a Revell Germany box. I repeat, no such box really exists… …but it should. This image, my friends, simply has about ten times more “oomph” than the

Just a brief note to complain about the state of “kit reviews” on the internet. It’s ghastly. When it comes to 1/72 scale kits, most of the information you get about “what kit to buy” is garbage. It will drive you up a wall unless you just sit back, remember it’s only a hobby, and

Now, you know where I’m going with this, so if you’re offended by my making various “experts” look like horses’ asses, then switch off now. *Ahem*. I just got this kit in the mail: …and you are (no doubt) familiar with the epic hilarity which ensued as a result of the rumor, advanced among certain

(This conversation was recorded and then published as a transcript on March 18, 2021. It transcribes, to the best of my recollection, the words of the magical rat who teaches me how to paint.) Tamiya paint can be “thinned” using a dropper of Windex. Use the old kind with ammonia. A dropper is 5 ml.
