  1. TVs best characters

    Max Eilerson, played by David Allen Brooks from the series Crusade (the Babylon 5 spin-off).
  2. Socially awkward

    I just happen to be suave and sophisticated, the name is Bear, The Bear. The only reason I sit in a small room at a big desk, fiddling with bits of plastic is so that I can talk to myself, because I'm the best conversationalist I know. I was seriously socially awkward as a callow youth though. I couldn't talk to women, I had a pathological stutter, and growing up in rural Queensland the most educated conversations I heard consisted of "Bloody hot today, eh." "Yeah, eh." In my early 30s my dreams consisted of living in exotic foreign countries, being friends with musicians, writers and artists, teaching at universities (even though at 30 I had not been to university), and being married to a beautiful foreign woman. Twenty years later I have acheived all that, and am back in Queensland where the educated conversation now consists of "Bloody hot today, eh. Howz ya paleo diet garn?" "Yeah good eh." It is those converations I avoid. DennisTheBear

  4. Gun camera on P-40 - how common?

    If I may ask a question on this too (sorry, not hijacking I hope). On the P-40E-1 was the gun-camera fairing a permanent installation? If no camera was fitted could it be removed and replaced with a flat panel? DennisTheBear

  6. finished kits everywhere

    A very cool collection (the aeroplanes at least, I couldn't tell the different AFVs from a bar of soap). Looking forward to seeing them individually. DennisTheBear

    Wow, groovy! As I have one of these in the stash I think I'll lurk around in corner furiously scribbling notes to steal your techniques...ah, that is, I mean, to be inspired by your diligent efforts. DennisTheBear

  14. That is a great conversion using basic modelling skills and materials (not saying your skills are basic) that is a example that you don't need lots of AM to create a unique model! Kudos galore for this!! DennisTheBear
