  1. I do not care what music they play. I do not care what their religion is. That is not why I do not shop there.
  2. That is entirely incorrect. HL plays nothing but religious music, mostly contemporary Christian. It is all instrumental music though, so if you aren't aware of the source, you'd never know it. I find it interesting that this comes up again on Independence Day.
  3. Italeri has most. MRC has some. Some are held by the folks who Accurate Miniatures contracted with to actually turn their plans into molds. Held for lack of payment, The folks who bought the bones of AM ended up with some. Not sure which or how many. The crux of it is Italeri has most. When Accurate Miniatures imploded, it was a big one.
  4. I-ta-LER-i would be the closest. Although I often still hear the company called "I-tal-IER-ee", which would be very close to how the company name was originally spelled. I tend to use both pronunciations equally.
  5. I've been in retail pretty much all my life, from thirteen to fifty. I can only wonder what life is like on the other side. The business I'm in now is grocery, so you can imagine how my weekend is going.
  6. All kinds of awesome sir! I will be waiting, and while I'm waiting I will work on trying to master doing white finishes! Mine was white, so that's what this one will be.
  7. I had a couple of buddies who were really into HeroClix wargaming five, ten years ago. Lots of those figures had flames. They might come cheap these days.
  8. Is there any chance that this will be available again someday? I finally got a hold of the MPC '77 Mustang II. Probably should have ordered one of the conversions before, but I figured I'd wait until I had the original kit in hand.
  9. Well, it appears any semblance of scale fidelity is out the window with THIS company.
  10. I have no problems with how you display your models. If everyone did it, maybe I would mind, but it's just you and you have a definite style to the overall look and feel. If I saw one of your pictures outside this forum, I would know it as yours. That's good that you have a distinct style. And I think that anyone abusing you in private messages needs to be reported to the administration here.
  11. While I really love the models they are putting out, my experience building the Ranger was not good. Warped parts galore. I sold the Ventura I'd recently bought as I just didn't want another headache. I still have the Chrysler 300B in the stash, and am still quite tempted by the Hornet. How do those two rank overall in terms of issues?
  12. I hate to be negative, but sciatic nerve pain can also be caused by something pressing on the nerve. X-Rays will often come up clean and not show some problems. Ten years ago, when I had my first hip done, orthopedic surgeons would do MRIs at the drop of a hat - I had many. But in the past five or six years, insurance companies started refusing to pay for MRIs in some cases, so doctors use them less now. They have to be able to prove to the insurance company the necessity. (This is why my second hip replacement was such a miserable experience.) I hope it is just inflammation. Sciatic pain is something most people cannot begin to understand. I liken it to having an invisible stalker hitting you randomly with an electric cattle prod.
  13. I did not realize it was the VERY FIRST show. I know you guys have hooked up with the airplane guys some in the past, but I figured this was just a reboot without the wings. Glad I went, and I found some goodies to take home. I wish I'd brought a couple of models - next time I will. Just noticed at the top of the flyer "1st Annual". Funny I missed that, but focused before on the faulty directions.
  14. Diddly dang. My FLSH doesn't have TS numbers that high. I didn't realize they went that far! Thanks Ludwig and Michael.
