No.

I've observed Mad Jack pegging the "Weird O' Metertm" on numerous occasions.

Still, I'm sure we wouldn't have him any other way.

I just built a Chinese kit last week. It had very good ikea style wordless instructions.

Yeah, I've had good experiences with Trumpeter, Rye Field Model, and I'd suspect Meng will be just as good too. 

 

I think it's more the descriptive pre-amble about the model itself, where things can be translated in a manner that may seem "off" for native English speakers, as our sentence structure is done very differently than Asian languages.  Either that or the cheaper (or older) kits where less effort is put into the instructions. 

 

Eerily, the worst instructions I've dealt with were from Revell, and I think it was an old Monogram kit.  Instructions for my A-10 are downright terrible, even for the pictographs!

Oh I know, a previous job I had involved taking translated scripts and preparing subtitles from them. Needing to send things back to the translator with notes like, "this does not make sense in english" was pretty common.

Would a mask be worn over that :blink: or underneath?

Did you know that on this day in history... well, quite a bit happened? In Italy alone:

  • In 27 BC, the Roman Senate granted the title Augustus to Gaius Octavius, making him the first Roman Emperor, marking the transition of Rome from a republic to an empire.
  • In 550 AD, a century after the fall of the Western Roman Empire, the Ostrogoths conquered Rome during the Gothic War during which the Eastern Roman Empire (known today as the Byzantine Empire) attempted to reconquer Italy.
  • In 1412 AD, the Medici family is made the official banker to the Papacy, allowing them to garner greater wealth and influence, and further the Italian Renaissance for approximately the next 80 years.

Arg. Yesterday's snow didn't last long after the sun emerged...and now most of what snow we did have has melted. I can see where this is leading...from here til Spring, only ice then when Spring hits it'll be monsoon season interrupting my attempts at yardwork until the weeds have a massive headstart on me followed by the return of the Tyranny of the Yellow Orb That Burns and Blinds...

So, you're all admitting that you're all really just the voices in my head?
