    A quick build in between other on-going projects (I still have a Fokker D.XXI, Starfighter, MiG-25 and a KMW Dingo in various stages of completion lying around..) but I found this kit on the Militracks event earlier this year and it was a kit I wanted but couldn't afford years ago. The box looked OK, all the parts were still sealed in plastic and it was complete so I bought it. Quite a straight forward built as I would expect from Tamiya, even for such an old kit. Plenty of detail with some nice touches like the steel mesh on the engine cover and all the movable parts like the radars, turret and guns (Complete with a ratchet mechanism that keeps the guns in place while elevated!) The colour is mostly Tamiya Olive Drab with a bit of black for some smaller parts. This is also the...

    According to this Italian newspaper, Max Verstappen, son of former F1 driver Jos Verstappen is about to announce a deal with Mercedes F1 and will soon test the 2012 model! Max is just 16 years old, but last season won every karting championship he entered, broke a few lap records in Formula Renault 2.0 winter testing and is now underway in his first ever full season in race car. He choose to start his career in the strong European F3 championship where he is currently in P2 after having won six races in a row in Belgium and on the Norisring. And now already to GP2 and possibly F1! http://autosprint.corrieredellosport.it/2014/07/23/max-verstappen-punta-mercedes/17463/ Translation:

    Hi Jan, do you also use Orbx FTX Global Vector? I guess then Pilot's FS Global 2010 FTX Compatible mesh might be the right choice. At least FTX Vector seems to be designed around this mesh. So these water-rollercosters will most likely disappear :) And to fix the plateau airports FTX Vector offers a small tool that should fix most of them :) Greetings Tim

    If the left rear contact point has proper static compression and max-static ratio (with no missing commas, or improper punctuation) and properly sequenced contact points within the limits stated, then I would agree it is a model issue with the suspension part name, or a duplicate part name, or failure to animate it.

    Thank you Tom; perfecto! I was hoping that you would post this. :-) "I also use the home grid to set even spacings for the vertices making up these splines." This is a great idea; it's the part I always have trouble with.

    To put things on a smaller yet just as heartbreaking scale: 192 or 193 out of the 298 people on board MH17 had the Dutch nationality. My best friend for 47 years is totally devestated as, till the moment of the downing of the airplane, he was a teacher of two of them (boys 15 and 16 years of age). They perished together with their parents. Of course I'm shattered too. That's all I have to say. My thoughts go out to all victims, their families and their loved ones. Maarten

    Hey Rob, foto's van de open dagen komen er hopelijk vanmiddag aan; ik heb ook nog even een concertje vanavond dus niet veel tijd om 1350 foto's uit te zoeken. Show viel wat tegen, aangezien het meeste klassieke spul (Inlcusief de Uiver!) met pech aan de grond stonden. Het weer viel ook wat tegen, vooral de eerste dag. Toch nog flink verbrand, maar ja..
