  1. The history of bourbon is somewhat murky, much like British beer. Per Wikipedia: "Distilling was most likely brought to present-day Kentucky in the late 18th century by Scots, Scots-Irish, and other settlers (including English, Irish, Welsh, German, and French) who began to farm the area in earnest. The origin of bourbon as a distinct form of whiskey is not well documented. There are many conflicting legends and claims, some more credible than others. "For example, the invention of bourbon is often attributed to Elijah Craig, a Baptist minister and distiller credited wi
  2. I've contacted C1 Models with an inquiry about the GT but so far no response.
  3. All my sources indicate it is 36300 (flat); possibly 26300 (semi-gloss) or even 16300 (gloss).
  4. I have the Helwan HA-300 and the EWR Süd VJ 101 C-X2. Both beautiful kits in their respective boxes, but I haven't started them yet. Airfix Model World had an article on the HA-300 which you might look up. I don't recall the exact issue offhand, but I do seem to recall that there were no major issues with building.
  5. The entire Corps of Space Rangers is glad to hear this news and wishes The Tentacled One a speedy recovery. Our patrols have been rather boring what with his being out of action lately. We miss the excitement!
  6. According to Boeing's "747-400 Airplane Characteristics for Airport Planning," dated December 2002, the vertical clearance from ground to the tops of the winglets, based on loading, can range from 22 ft 0 in to 24 ft 0 in. In 1/144 scale this would be a range of 1.833 in to 2.000 in. Clearance from ground to bottom of wingtip can range from 16 ft 9 in to 18 ft 9 in, or 1.395 in to 1.5625 in. Vertical clearance at the tip of the tailplanes can range from 27 ft 6 in to 29 ft 9 in, or 2.292 in to 2.479 in in 1/144 scale. Note: You can download copies of these airport plann
  7. Beautiful models, both. Can this kit be built as a left-hand-drive version? I owned a '68 MGB and have always wanted to built a model of it. I've always regretted letting the car go, but that;s a different story.
  8. This is why the F-35 could not be cancelled:
  9. Well, Larry was a Native Texan, after all (born in Fort Worth*), and a noted speaker of what we Texans call "the Kang's Anglish." *Fort Worth, 30 miles west of Dallas, has as its motto the slogan "Where the West begins," leading some wits to propose that Dallas's motto should be "Where the East peters out."
  10. Test pilot's last words: "When they said 'test to destruction' I didn't think they meant with me in it!"
