Wash first, we don't want any oil on models.


Should probably wash after the fondling, too.

Re: USS DISCOVERY vs TOS E THOUGHTS

Yea, no. Make is so you have only four transfer points between parts of the ship? No naval architect would ever let that fly. It screams structural weakness. Could be worse. They could have connected the ship's two main components together with just a single narrow connecting structure. Or, put the...

Re: New (small) 1/2500 Station... Chevon-6

FYI: A single deck in 1/2500 is 0.06". Really? :?: :o You're telling me a deck is only 5 feet high? :o :?: I just ran your 0.06cm to 1/2500 and got a height of 5 feet Tesral. :? Sorry, but that doesn't sound right. :? :?: I calculated 8 feet to equal 0.1cm, which I belive is 1mm. Isn't it? Tha...

Re: Show Me Your Stereotypes (Non-Hurtful)

I've got some old Aiwa shelf unit speakers plugged into an even older Emerson boombox, via a thing I cludged together to get both the main speakers and the "front surround" speakers plugged into the Emerson's RCA speaker jacks.

Listen to most of music on on my computer, though....

Re: Why I'm Not a Train Modeler

To be honest, I have no idea what I'm talking about. I know there's N-gauge and O-gauge. After that... you'll need to talk to my brother. He's the train guy There was a Z gauge, so called briefcase trains. N gauge (1:148 to 1:160 depending on make) HO gauge (1/84-ish) OS gauge Lionel trains. O gaug...

Ask them if they know of the glory of the Digital Command Control. Maybe recite parts of the instruction manual. :mrgreen:

Re: Why I'm Not a Train Modeler

I fall in and out of model railroading. A small switching layout with one or two engines is enough for me. The problem is I like N scale (1:160) and scale speeds. I just can't keep the things running reliably that slow. I've seen somebody modify an HO scale (1:87) engine, to run on batteries, and ta...
