  1. Believe it or not but we were once known as "The Iodine State". South Carolina had it on their license plates in the '30s.. The drivers were better before we had the people from "Off" move in.
  2. Welcome! I hate to tell you but it was 81 down here today!!
  3. also remember that the guys driving them were not large football players. Heck I probably couldn't get in one when I was in the 10th grade. Size matters.
  4. We have a 16 year old Dachshund that we have had since she was weened. She has never had any medical issues to speak of. I know its coming but I hate thinking of the day when she takes a nap and doesn't wake up. Its all part of life and living. Never forget all of the good times you had!
  5. OMG... Run to the store and buy all the Bread, Milk and Eggs you can put your hands on.... or that's what they say.
  6. Once saw pics of a 1:1 Model A with an engine out of a 240 Diesel. Had more power than the flathead 4. 😃
  7. storm over, beautiful sunny day (always is after a storm) now to spend most of the day getting the small limbs and spanish moss off the roof and out of the yard. Just another day in the low-country for me!
  8. So far its just a rainy and windy day here in Chas, SC as the outer bands move through. Wouldn't hurt my feelings if that's all we get..
  9. Don't forget Jose. they have him doing a 360 and coming after Irma. Time will tell.
  10. Isn't that the same place that went ape shxx when they had some snow a couple of years ago???
  11. Recommendation to all that moved to Florida but weren't raised there. I came up from Jax to SC averaged 50-60 mph. learn the back roads. i-95 and hwy17 are not the way out. Oh yeah, turn the GPS off and get a good map. all the GPS devices show the same routes and everyone is using them. spend a few minutes with a paper map and do some "flight planning".
  12. Thanks to Gegg for the heartwarming Editors Corner tribute to Harry P. and the inclusion in this edition of several articles He wrote or assisted with. I had not realized that he wrote a book until I read the article. I am ordering one right after I finish. Being relatively new to the modeling community (about 3 years after a long hiatus) I never had the honor to meet Harry P. in person. However I did have behind the scenes interaction with him on the forum. I can say that the talks showed me that he was very passionate when it came to the magazine, website and model building in general. I hope that in the future the magazine will be able to re-print any other articles or items he participated with. I do not have the full magazine history and I am sure there are plenty in the archives. I hope that for every Harry we lose there are many more that he has inspired that will continue on seeking the satisfaction of a great build and they will help keep this hobby alive. Thanks again Harry for everything you have done. I'm sure you are watching and making little comments as we build!
  13. Looks a ton better than my 1968 1:1 looked when I was in high school!
