Paulo, we have got
to get you off this infatuation with 1/700 scale!
Seriously though, my major complaint against 700-scale models is that their details
are practically never rendered to scale
- particularly the all-important weapons
and similar fittings. At that scale, such things as gun barrels and airplane wings become extremely delicate - with the results that most decently-detailed "700-scale" fittings are actually 600-scale. (I know you've seen this issue personally, as you have started to work with the tiny, tiny Matt Stein Models Twin-3"50cals - and they're only in 1/550
Oh well - just keep buying Matty's Models parts and you will be building in 1/540 scale for decades - problem solved!
And Donny, you're cracking me up
with your mini geo-political summary of the Pacific War, buddy.
And (in a twisted way) it's true: nothing makes you "everybody's new best friend" faster than droping two atom bombs(!) in the neighborhood. Oh my God
, what a F-ed Up World we've been living in - a Change Got
And that's my Thought for The Day, Pearl Harbor Day December 7, 2010.
