Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

I understand how politics on a forum can quickly go awry and not conducive to civil conversation and contrary to the forum powers-to-be. I shan’t interfere with this but look at all of the nice juicy politics out there. Yes, ‘nice politics’ is a oxymoron but who would want to read about all of the ‘...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

https://www.edx.org/school/harvardx This is a ‘For What it’s Worth’ that is worth a lot. They are really completely free and one can get a ‘Certificate of Completion’ for a small fee. But one has to work for that, otherwise they can be watched for free. I think that the tax payer is paying Harvard f...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTD7DqXfRno For what it’s worth, some P-51 info versus the ME-109 info....Now this video covers a whole bunch of tech specs. The guy sounds like he may be familiar with what he is talking about....whatever. I can see where these high victories of the German aces may i...

FOR WHAT IT’S WORTH--- This is just for some that may wish to know what their fired bullet may look like, rifling engagement, covering, etc. Line the wooden box with a hinged lid with garbage bag plastic and tape some plastic over the hole outside...and add water. I can’t show a photo of mine becaus...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

Just some more P-51 trivia if interested....I just read that both the P-51 engine and the Bf-109 engine were designed in the same year, 1933. I had a coworker that worked on the Packard Motor Company version in the mid 40’s when the US decided to have a US version of it, but with the more powerful P...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

Strictly trivia – okay. A P-51 story---When I worked for Douglas I had a co-worker that was a North American test pilot where they were assembling P-51’s among others, across the street at the NA plant at the edge of the LA Air Port. He said that before the war broke out he came down with Polio and ...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

On the news yesterday and today, about the new two month old plane going down off Sumatra. A couple of things that some may not realize, Two types of planes that are not as safe as most are the older ‘high-time’ planes and the new planes that have not been ‘debugged’ as much. Everything in life is a...

Re: oss cross bow ??

If one would like some quiet legal protection one may like one of these. It is single shot but can be reloaded faster than a little cross bow. I have one.

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mucilage I am beginning to believe that it may be the Mucilage in the linseed oil that may be the main reason for the unclear finish of the regular linseed oil wood finish. I am gathering that the regular 7 dollar a pint BOL that one may buy at Walmart has not been clea...

DSC_0055.JPG Okay yesterday I fiddled with the regular BOILED LINSEED OIL and CANOLA OIL and ended up with six different little samples. But I did not label them or take any notes, and therefor I ended up with this one useful sample that after four light coats dried in 20 hours over night on untrea...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

The Philippine gold mining other than in the regular gold mines is what could be called just plain ridicules. There is plenty of gold there, the whole length of the islands, gold every where...but one here can not really understand how it is done there. A lot of it is done like can be seen from a pi...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

DSC_0054.JPG Okay – My polymerizing of the Canola Oil needs further experimenting and testing. I misinterpreted the reason my oil was drying quickly. I had tried it on different new virgin wood surfaces...it was just soaking in leaving a dried surface. Once it had built up 3 or 4 coats, it no longe...
