This bit bemused me 'A spokesman said Revell distances itself from glorification of wars and the Nazi era and is trying to work out how and why the toy was developed and made available for sale.' Doesn't the spokesman for Revell know that they didn't develop the kit, only rebox a squadron product? And presumably, if they're not going to glorify war or the Nazi era, they won't be making any more Messerschmitts, Dorniers, Tigers, Panthers etc. Andy
If I didn't have one already, I'd have one on the way. I do like a bit of frivolous silliness with a germ in the maniac ramblings of a little guy from Austria with a funny moustache. Didn't @Martian Hale build one some years back? Should we burn him at the stake now?
Seems a bit of an overreaction based on willful ignorance, especially since the box art shows B-36's flying in the background. Hmmm, these are still for sale: http://www.squadron.com/Squadron-Models-1-72-Haunebu-II-German-Flying-Sa-p/sqm0001.htm - Currently on sale for $32 http://www.squadron.com/Haunebu-II-Saucer-p/peg9119.htm http://www.squadron.com/Squadron-Models-1-72-Haunebu-II-Premium-Edition-p/sqm0002.htm
In my mind you can. Solipsism is a really weird thing. I know some people seem to think that only they matter in the world, but to believe everyone else is a pigment of their imagination? Not to be confused with narcissism, which has the same end result, but in some ways is worse, as they love themselves so much they don't give a about all the real people they're abusing. At least the solipsist is only abusing imaginary people, or "not real" people.
It's a rebox of a kit from the Far East if Frank's to be believed (do we believe him? ). Maybe they should have just added a sticker that clarified it, rather than takling their ball home with them. Some people really have got too few problems to deal with though. Do we have to make it clear that Star Wars films aren't historical documents now?
I can understand the complaints about something which, at a glance, appears like it has a historical basis with the description reading more as something that's factual than it does fiction - but Revell apparently "trying to work out how and why the toy was developed and made available for sale." seems to be going too far if that's not referring to just the packaging but rather not being sure why or how they made it in the first place. There's no problem with Revell making fictional kits, as long as that's made clear.
You heard the nut-jobs, when are you deleting the 'Sci-Fi' and 'What-if' sections Mike? I'll get all my Luft-46 out for a good trampling on later, oh yes, I'll have to get all those fiction books off my shelves, as it isn't 100% true they'll have to go on the bonfire. That's seriously going to cut down on the telly programs that can be shown. And it looks like the Tellietubbies will have to face the firing squad. Bunch of frauds. Stop using your imaginations!
It could be more harmful to Whatiffery of the Luft46 variety if Germans are now no longer able to build anything speculative with a cross on it. How will that affect Iron Sky? Nazis on the moon will be banned now? It's all a bit barmy. We don't know what the hue & cry was over there, and it's very easy to pontificate from this side of the channel, but it may just have been an expediency to placate some big mouths, perhaps made without thought for the future, or the fact that once you placate these cry-bullies, it emboldens them. If they don't like it, they want to make damn sure you can't like it either. Hopefully Revell can offload their remaining stock elsewhere, which may be easier as we all have now heard about it. Get one to thumb your nose at them! Haunebu II STGB anyone?
LEDs with their own resistor is meant to be connected in parallel. LEDs without a resistor can be connected in series with, or without, a single resistor. The thing is that if a LED uses 2 volts to operated optimally, then it requires 2 or less volts to operate. However, if you connect 5 LEDs in series, it can be hooked up to (5 x 2 volts = 10 volt) supply or less. If you added, lets say, 7 LEDs in series to a 9 volt battery, each LED will be running on about (9 / 7 = 1.3 volts), and would be dimmed down. However, running 2 LEDs, in series, on a 9 volt supply (9 volts / 2 LEDs = 4.5 volts per LED) will instantly blow the LEDs. (open circuit)
In my simplistic knowledge I have everything wired in parallel just because that's all I know, so I wire the upper decks and front view deck ( x3 blue lights) in a series and then in to the parallel circuit? So the 3 blue LED`s would share the 9V between them, 3v each.
About a year ago, I backed a crowd-funded 3D printer/laser cutter/CNC mill on a crowdfunding website. Mine arrived on Saturday and I’ve been learning how to make the 3D printer work. The test print? A Space Marine! Thanks to Thingiverse, I was able to find a suitable candidate & scale it. Progress so far: Only a 30-hour print!
