He's vaccinated. You got your stab. He would probably appreciate some beverages :winkthumbs:. Do I need to set you up with a food trading partner? hah!

 

Only if the train goes there.

 

I don't own a car :ph34r:

Engineer: Can you write up a document for this procedure?
Me: I'll need the technical data for this component. 
Engineer: Talk to Purchasing
Purchasing:  I don't have it, but you can down load it here (sends link to vendor website)
Vendor website: Sure, you can have this datasheet - just sign up for an account!
Me: $#@%@%$^!!! This is going to lead to spam. <breaks down and signs up> 

2 weeks  later:

Vendor Salesperson: OH HI NEW CUSTOMER! WHAT CAN I SELL YOU?

I'm currently working as a maintenance engineer. This... this is also my life now. Except I'm also the guy writing up the procedure.

 

Fortunately, being with a consulting firm, it's the customer's (equipment owner) responsibility to get those manuals from the stingy/secretive suppliers. Assuming the supplier still exists (or sold off to another company under a different name), or the model isn't discontinued, etc.

Maybe? I don't actually know. The train goes from your area to my uncle's area. Does it go to DC-ish area too?

So I've been character creation mode the last few days. As I mentioned before next week we are switching up the AL games & running lower level games for newer people. Since I always make a 2nd level character thanks to my previous experiences of DMing, at least I've got a one up on character abilities. Currently, I've got the following character/concepts made:

 

full blood orc druid (Circle of Wildfire from Tasha's): This one is my favorite but it doesn't stray to far from my current artificer/steel defender character.

 

halfling rogue (will be a thief, I think): It's been awhile since I've played a rogue & might as well make it a halfling.)

 

tabaxi bard (not sure where I wanna go with this one)

 

tortle warlock (Hexblade): Probably my 2nd favorite. I'm basing the character on a mini from Bite the Bullet (tortle cleric). I just need to print off a spear to replace, the maul. I wish I could use a glaive, as I think that would be a cool looking character, ehh heavy & 2 handed, so spear it is.

 

elf (high-moon) cleric of the Twilight Domain. Typical cleric but with elf stuff & of course Twilight domain.

Hmm. FB giving me ads for a paint-and-take in New Jersey, but that seems a little long a drive from Tennessee. :unsure:

 

 I once drove 14 hours from southeast CT down to Point Pleasant, WV (Home of the Mothman) to do Rocky Horror...

Anyone a model plane modeler?

 

Curious as a general rule, how much weight, people put into the nose, so as not to have a tail sitter plane. I'm debating on getting white metal (ie minis!!) landing struts for my Mitchell build, but I still am gonna throw in the weight.

 

I did go in on anther HL 40% off/free shipping deal again. Not as many models but I did get anther Death Star II kit (hopefully this one doesn't get pooched.....<_<). I also ordered a P51B Mustang kit as well. I'm not one for military models but I'm kinda getting excited to build up these. I like the WWII era stuff over more modern machines.

I've usually found that the kit itself tells you how much weight you need to add, for 1/72 modern jets (F-15E etc) approx 5g seems to be fairly common.

If it is a gunship [solid] nose, just glue a couple of pennies there, tape the nose on and see if that is enough. If it is glazed nose, probably have to use a bit more under the cockpit floor.

BBs are individually inexpensive and easier to fit and hide than pennies. 
 

On a B-25...is there any room inside the engine nacelles? That is where considerable weight would be on the real plane.

So I joined this fantasy book group on Facebook, and, for some reason, I really don't even know why, I was weirdly kinda hyped about it, thought I might have some good book talk, but I've been there like a week now or whatever, and it's already apparent that the people there are strangely standoffish, cliquish even, and everybody seems to have a perpetual rager for only a handful of series, and I started to post about my current read, but then I started really noticing this stuff, and now I'm just kinda like, idk. Meh.

 

Reading the first Witcher novel now tho. I'm pretty into it. These Gollancz covers are unfathomably cheesy tho. I honestly have no idea what's even happening here.

Train goes down to the DC-ish area, sure. I've been down to Baltimore for my partner's sister's college graduation. I know the train heads further down that way.

I'm gonna use lead fishing weights.

 

The b25 has a clear nose, so the weight will prob go in the crawlspace to the nose cockpit.

 

Engines might be an idea thou. Hell I had it all planned for the P51 & put the weight in the engine....ummmm yah ok:ik_oops:
