    I only have two actual power tools purchased from HF: an ultrasonic cleaner, and a tiny miter saw.  The saw is supposedly good for small diameter metal tubing, but I wouldn't trust it for anything tougher than wood or plastic.
    That being said, I find them to be a good source for small, non-powered items like spring clamps, flush-cutters, airbrush-cleaning brushes, probes, files, alligator clips, etc...

    I checked the Barnes & Noble at the Bay Plaza Mall in the Bronx, no joy.

    What an interesting subject.  I think I will try to pick one of these up, and see if I can customize it similar to this:

    Thanks for posting your review!

    I only received one kit - my wife got me Revell's 1941 Chevy Pickup kit, which I'm looking forward to doing something interesting with.  I did get a few other very cool things, like t-shirts, collectibles and art prints, as well as a coffee mug with with a structural diagram of a caffeine molecule printed on it.

    I think this is a tough question, since it's hard to know if the people you choose would have anything in common musically, but picking people all from the same genre would just be boring.
    Throwing together a few names that are influential on me, I'd say:
    Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails) on vocals and keys/programming
    Chris Wolstenholme (Muse) on bass and backing vocals
    Ty Tabor (KIng's X) on guitar
    Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine) on guitar
    and Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters) on drums.

    Great photos, Ed, as usual.  Thank you for sharing!

    So would I, LOL! I've already had another Gundam kit sitting in my stash for about 5 years with similar intentions, nothing has come of it yet.

    I built an original release of the kit way back when, I was never really satisfied with my work on it.  I'd love to try again, and apply techniques I've learned since then.  First thing, that chrome needs to come off, it's not at all accurate to the filming vehicle.  Shades of dark metals would work much better, I think.
  10. Danny Lectro added a post in a topic multiple projects   

    I find myself working on multiple projects lately, but not more than three at one time.  Sometimes I get bored with a project and need to switch up, sometimes I get frustrated and need to switch up, sometimes I may be working within a particular theme or color scheme, sometimes I may work on multiple items with the intent to parts-swap and kitbash.  On a couple of occasions I have started additional projects in the hopes of having more finished builds to bring to a show.
    I build models from multiple genres, sometimes that will lead me to start an additional project while one is already going.

    Wow, that is really nicely done!

    I really like what you've done with the model, Virgil.  Very nice weathering work, as usual.
    What are your thought on the kit itself?  I've had ideas of getting one to make into a 1/35 steampunk or dieselpunk mecha.

    One would hope not!

    Do they have OOP model kits and a wide selection of hobby paints at Riker's? I wouldn't know, since I've never had cause to be at Riker's.

    There is also the Red Caboose on 45th Street, between 5th and 6th Avenues.  The place is small, cramped and hot, and the proprietor can be hard to deal with, but I have found some good stuff there.
